About Zak Bagans
Zak Bagans net worth currently amounts to $1.5 million dollars. As most of you may already know, he is a paranormal investigator, television personality and book author. As such, Zak is a rather controversial celebrity. Some are intrigued by his investigations and admire him for the bravery to go into contact with evil spirits. Meanwhile the others call Zak and his crew professional fakers, who manipulate people‘s fears and play on their insecurities in order to get rich. I can‘t answer the question which of these groups have the truth on their side. What I can do is introduce you with the shows that boosted Zak Bagans net worth to millions of dollars and his personal attitudes on these shows.
Before starting to work as a paranormal investigator Zak was a wedding DJ. In fact, that‘s how he befriended his colleague Nick Groff: the former hired Zak to perform at his wedding. And how come Zak decided to change his life completely and shifted his attention from music to ghosts? According to the star, it was a face-to-face encounter with the spirit of a suicidal woman that encouraged him to concentrate on paranormal activity. And that‘s pretty much what the team of „ghost hunters“, Zak Bagans, Nick Groff, and Aaron Goodwin, are doing on television series Ghost Adventures: they investigate reportedly haunted locations, hoping to collect visual or auditory evidence of paranormal activity.
The overwhelming impression I get when watching these series, is that the team takes their job dead seriously. And I don‘t say this just because they have all sorts of seriously-looking gadgets. What I am trying to underline here is that Zak forms an impression of a man who really believes in what he is doing. Moreover, he seems absolutely convinced that the job they are doing is important for wider society. For example, in the interviews the star has said: „I feel sometimes that the other side has chosen us and has chosen to make its appearances and awareness to us.“ And „These irrefutable moments [when spirits are contacted] are ones that help us understand life after death.“ Seeing how long this television show has managed to survive, I must conclude that there is a considerable part of Americans who take it seriously too. Unless, of course, most of its viewers consider Ghost Adventures to be a comedy show and watch it for a good laugh, not super-natural knowledge.
Even if people are actually laughing in front of their screens and don’t believe everything (or anything) they see on the show, I don‘t think Zak minds that as long as they are watching. The show still serves one of its main purposes: increases Zak Bagans net worth. Plus, he loves what he is doing: „The best part of my job is being able to travel to places to investigate powerful stories, many of which contains unsolved mysteries and deaths. To me as a documentarian and paranormal investigator, this puts the adventure in my life and meaning to my job.“
