Ghost Hunters Marathon Promotes National Hunt for the Hunter

NEW YORK -- May 22, 2007 -- When Ghost Hunters returns to SCI FI on June 6th at 9 pm (ET/PT), America's favorite paranormal plumbers will be looking for a new Ghost Hunter who will appear in an upcoming episode of the show. On Wednesday, May 30th from 7 to 10 pm (ET/PT) a special marathon of Jason and Grant's all time favorite episodes will kick off promotion for the Hunt for the Hunter, a national search for the newest member of the Ghost Hunters team.

Beginning June 6th, Ghost Hunter wannabees can visit www.scifi.com to enter to win the Hunt for the Hunter. Contenders will be offered online tools such as the Ghost Hunter's Gear Guide and the T.A.P.S. website to help prepare themselves for the competition. Haunted hopefuls are asked to submit an audition video for consideration as the next great Ghost Hunter. Viewers and online users are also encouraged to participate in the hunt by rating the videos. Jason and Grant will choose three finalists from among the top ten highest-rated audition videos.

Three lucky finalists, who will be announced in first fall episode, will prove their mettle when they compete during the most hair-raising of episodes, the annual Ghost Hunters Live telecast on Halloween night. Viewers will be invited to vote for their favorite contender via text and online but the veteran Ghost Hunters have the final word. Jason and Grant will reveal the winner during the following week's post-Halloween season finale. Whoever reigns victorious will return to bust another ghost in an upcoming episode in season 4 next year.

Since the show's debut, Jason and Grant have conducted scores of intriguing paranormal investigations, and have gathered a loyal and growing fan base. The 2006 season of Ghost Hunters ranked as the highest-rated and most-watched season in HH ratings and all key demos. Season three also marked the first time audience numbers in the key P18-49 and P25-54 demos averaged over 1 million viewers throughout its run. The inaugural Ghost Hunters Live special, a one-of-a-kind, 6-hour investigative television event on Halloween night, tripled the viewing audience for the time period.

The one-hour weekly reality series follows a group of real-life "ghostbusters" as they investigate haunted houses and establishments throughout the world. Produced in association with Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television (American Chopper, Dirty Jobs, The Ultimate Fighter), the Ghost Hunters are committed to the search for the truth � or the truly bizarre. Piligian and Thomas Thayer serve as executive producers.
