Fans of Ghost Adventures will remember the teams live event at Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, W. Virginia last October as well as the controversy surrounding one the guests of the halloween investigation, Robert Bess.
Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum Incident:
During the investigation, Robert Bess was holding an EMF meter when it suddenly shot out of his hand and down the dark hallway. The controversy stems from the probability that Bess tossed the meter himself – though he maintains the meter was pulled from his hands by some unseen force.
Now, several months after the fact, Robert Bess and his group, The Foundation for Paranormal Research, have issued a challenge to the guys from Ghost Adventures that involves the capture of a ghost and providing evidence on the spot.
According to Richmond.com, Bess said, “I’ve told them anywhere. They can even pick the location and bring as much help as they need.”
Bess added that if he wins, he requests Ghost Adventures (presumably, this would include the Travel Channel) cancel next season “and tell the public exactly why.”
Bess also said if Zak, Nick, and Aaron wins, “it’s up to them what they want in return.”
So far, there has been no answer to this challenge from anyone with Ghost Adventures, but Bess says that if they don’t answer, fan’s and the general public “can assume that they have declined and backed down from the challenge.”
“This isn’t about trash talking,” Bess said. “I just want to bring things to light and clear my name as a paranormal investigator. On ‘Ghost Adventures,’ it looked like I didn’t know what I was doing.
Will Zak, Nick, and Aaron take on this challenge? Who knows? They are certainly not responsible for the events that transpired during their live investigation, at least, not in the way Mr. Bess would like to believe.
Contrary to what Richard Bess thinks, it was the fans that called his actions into question. Upon review, the guys were unable to make a solid determination on whether the EMF meter was thrown or pulled out of Bess’ hand, though they are confident it was not paranormal.
Stay tuned Ghost Adventures fans! This should prove to be interesting, if not downright entertaining.
