New Ghost Hunters: where is Grant Wilson ?

Has Grant taken a back seat this season ? Image Credit: YouTube / A&E
Fans of the rebooted paranormal investigation show have noticed that Grant himself has been mostly absent.
The original Ghost Hunters, which launched all the way back in 2004, followed plumbers Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson - two paranormal investigators who, alongside a team of fellow enthusiasts, spent their spare time looking for evidence of ghosts.

The show's original run ended in 2016, however last year it received a reboot - this time with Wilson at the helm. The show's second season, which is still ongoing, premiered on A&E back in April.

It didn't take fans long to notice however that something seemed to be amiss - Grant himself has been conspicuously absent from most of the episodes, showing up only in FaceTime calls while the other team members conduct most of the investigating on their own.

Many viewers have taken to social media to speculate over why this might be, with some expressing concern that Grant could be ill or that he is planning to leave the show (again).
Fortunately however everything appears to be fine - Grant has since posted a Tweet explaining that the reason for his absence is that he has wanted the team to work on some cases without him.

"Hey guys! All is well," he wrote. "I'm letting the team do a few cases in their own but I'll be back on the cases with them next week. Thank you all for the love, support, and concern."

Team member Richel Stratton has also commented on the situation.

"Grant is still our team leader," she told "He's still very much a part of Ghost Hunters, he's a team member. You will occasionally see us without him."

"That doesn't mean he's going anywhere. He's letting us develop as a team. The previous Ghost Hunters knew each other and had that relationship and he's allowing us to have that as well."

† That's not even funny my friend, there is always something positive you can find if you relax, open your mind and focus on it. We all have this ability, its not magic or super natural, it's within each of us. But many of us miss it because we don't look in the most obvious place, which is within ourselves. We all have the ability† to be the light, for another who is lost and searching. Now this and understanding it can mean all the difference in our own lives, because what we do for those in need, is returned to us many times over. So don't let things get you down, do something about your si... [More]

Hunting ghosts, bigfoot,† aliens or even an alleged treasure buried on a island some bucks up guy buys, With or without a skeptic etc, just the players, the one absolute that all reality shows have in common, they never find a darn thing,† it started with capones empty vault, These shows are about entertainment not science not facts so the promoter makes $$$ off advertisers, bored folks tune in, only the blind true believers buy into the ruse.

Grant was my favorite investigators on Ghost Hunters. I stopped watching when I saw fishing line used to make it look like a "ghost" was tugging on the back of his shirt.

I canít stand ghost hunting shows. Thatís sucks for people like myself who love the paranormal. Iím always looking for something interesting to watch, and often have to weed through these shows to find something good.† † I prefer the shows where eye witnesses just tell their stories. I can relate to those shows much better.†
