Zak Bagans and Aaron Goodwin met almost 20 years ago after Bagans moved from Michigan to Nevada. Their first big project together was a documentary about paranormal phenomena all around The Silver State. That documentary spawned the hit TRVL Channel series, Ghost Adventures as well as several spin-offs. Ghost Adventures is now in its 25th season.

Amy Allan and Steve Di Schiavi

They’re an unlikely duo who don’t even see one another that often, but they get in trouble for joking on set when they’re together. Allan and Di Schiavi are the investigators on The Dead Files, a show that combines Allan’s psychic abilities with Di Schiavi’s homicide investigation skills to solve paranormal mysteries.

Amy Bruni and Adam Berry

John “Trapper” Tice, Willy McQuillian, and Jeff Headlee were already searching for the monsters of Appalachia long before they ever appeared on TRVL. They were later joined by Buck Lowe, Huckleberry Lott, and Wild Bill Neff. While Tice died in 2019, the rest of the team carries on his original mission — exploring the cryptids of Appalachia — on Mountain Monsters.

Before they hit TRVL’s air, these childhood best friends were creating content on Youtube. Now, Laden, Wiseman, Laden’s sister, Chelsea, and their camera-wielding friend Alex Schroeder lock themselves overnight in abandoned hospitals, shuttered prisons, and other creepy destinations in Destination Fear.

The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS)

Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson founded TAPS, the organization behind Ghost Hunters, in 1990. The two friends went on to make 11 seasons of the show that brought paranormal investigations onto the main stage of American television.
