Travel Channel show “Paranormal Challenge” visited West Virginia Penitentiary in Moundsville. The show has two teams of ghost hunters to see who can collect the best evidence of paranormal activity.
West Virginia Paranormal hunt for ghosts in the asylum.
The teams in the penitentiary overnight were each given a section of the building to collect paranormal evidence. Judges evaluate the evidence and their use of ghost hunting technology.
Host Bellay said they were fans of “Ghost Adventures,” ghosts hunts show and auditioned for “Paranormal Challenge,” a spin-off of “Ghost Adventures”.
“They’re returning to places they’ve found paranormal activity,” he said.
Bellay said he was serious about paranormal research three years ago, but interested in ghosts since childhood.
“When I was 2 or 3 years old I had the Ghostbuster packs,” he said. He rarely gets spooked
To combat ghosts, Bellay uses a Mel meter to hunt down paranormal activity, and haunted Moundsville gives off “bad vibes.”
