Hawes and Wilson stars of The Sci-Fi Channel series Ghost Hunters have been investigating paranormal activity for more than 17 years, and have dealt with their fair share of fake hauntings and staged spooks.
Once, they were investigating a mans home for ghostly evidence but instead discovered that the owner of the house had built a speaker system into the wall and was using it to fake spooky sounds to make the house appear haunted.
Another time, Hawes and Wilson were called to explore a haunted restaurant which turned out to be a total sham.
The entire restaurant was rigged with bad wiring and lighting to give it a ghostly vibe, and they ended up fixing the buildings phony problems.
Hawes says, We took the wisea■■ angle on that one and just fixed their wiring. They couldnt trick us.
And although many of the places theyve researched have looked spooky, appearances can be deceiving.
Says Wilson: Weve visited ancient houses, straight off Scooby Doo, that werent actually haunted!
Season four of Ghost Hunters premieres tonight (Mar. 5) on Sci-Fi.
