Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, and Shari DeBenedetti traveled America to visit some of the scariest locations in the country.
Bloodiest 47 Acres Redux
After construction at the decommissioned Missouri State Penitentiary unearthed long-hidden prison cells, reports of paranormal activity soared. The prison, which housed bank robber Pretty Boy Floyd and assassin James Earl Ray, was opened in 1836 and always had tales of hauntings, but an uptick in activity after its closure is what originally drew the TAPS team to see if they could find out who is haunting the prison’s caretakers.
The Lost Souls of Joliet
TAPS was accompanied by the Destination Fear team when they returned to the Joliet Correctional Center in Joliet, Illinois . As Steve Gonsalves and Tanner Wiseman walk through death row, they hear disembodied footsteps and banging all around them. Meanwhile, in the east cell block, Jason Hawes feels as if somebody is next to him as he walks through the corridor.
Lost Bones of the Argo
Satori Hawes and her boyfriend, Cody Ray DesBiens, joined hands in the Argo Hotel in Croften, Nebraska, as they asked spirits to come forward. They made contact with a ghost who identified himself as Don, and Don had a message from beyond the grave.
The Haunted Brewery
A church-turned-brewery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is supposed to be haunted by a mysterious lady in white. As Jason and Steve head into the crawlspace below the church, they hear footsteps above them at the old altar. Later, when they review their audio for electronic voice phenomena, they hear a male voice say, “Jesus.”
The Castle Light Mystery
The team heads to Bacon’s Castle in Surry County, Virginia, where people have reported seeing ghostly orbs for decades. As Steve walks through the house, he stops to read some writing on the wall. As he reads it aloud, he starts to hear a sad moaning coming from the other room. The sobbing only gets louder as they look for the source.
Ghosts of Gaines Tavern
Jason and Steve encounter a female ghost at a Kentucky tavern. As they walk through the building, they hear footsteps above them. A female voice seems to beckon to them from the stairs, but all paranormal activity stops once they go upstairs.
A Boy and Buried Secrets
Jason and Steve search the attic at a Virginia winery with a tragic past. As they get close to the attic door, they hear humming from inside, and the EMF sensor lights up. Steve gets a surprise when he locks himself in the attic to try and reach a ghost named Benedict.
The Haunted House on the Hill
The new owners of a Tennessee farm house call TAPS after experiencing paranormal activity in their home. The residents often hear crashes in the living room and kitchen , so the TAPS team takes a seat in the living room to invite the spirits to speak with them. Later as the team reviews their footage, they see a shadow pass in front of the refrigerator.
The Girl With No Eyes
A century-old Kansas home is plagued by a paranormal entity, and the owners are desperate to figure out who is there. Dave plays a few bars on the piano at the home and then hears something shocking in his headphones.
Wraiths of Winchester
During an investigation at a Civil War-era home in Virginia, Steve and Jason encounter an entity that breathes in Jason’s ear and then follows Steve downstairs and out of the room. Later, as they review the camera footage, they can see a black, shadowy mass in the room where Steve had gone.
When the TAPS team meets up with Adam Berry of Kindred Spirits and Dave Tango of Destination fear, they capture ghostly music as they walk through a haunted mansion in New Jersey. They play some old-time music for the spirits, and the entity causes a camera to shut off.
The Shadow Man
When the team investigates a haunting at an Ohio performing arts center, they see a shadow figure walk down the aisle in the auditorium. As they approach the place where it first appeared, they realize there is a single seat in the down position as if somebody was still sitting in it.
Tortured Souls of Cresson
The Ghost Brothers joined the TAPS team to investigate a closed sanatorium in Pennsylvania where they believe that a dark presence in the building is actually serial killer Joseph Kallinger. As the teams search for paranormal evidence, they hear multiple knocks and disembodied voices.

'Ghost Hunters' Investigator Steve Gonsalves Talks Reuniting With Original TAPS Team for Season 15 Premiere (Exclusive)
By Tania Hussain - September 30, 2022 05:03 pm EDT
Spooky season is kicking off with a bang thanks to the Ghost Hunters ! The groundbreaking paranormal reality series is back for its milestone 15th season this weekend on discovery+ and investigator Steve Gonsalves is joined by some very familiar faces in the season premiere. Investigating alongside original team members Jason Hawes and Dave Tango with Sheri DeBenedetti, the group is joined by former TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) teammates, Amy Bruni , Adam Berry and Kris Williams for a case like no other.
With the crew heading to the Florida panhandle, where a new exhibition is stirring up paranormal activity at the Pensacola Lighthouse, Gonsalves and the team help ease the anxieties of a worried staff who have experienced some very disturbing hauntings. Armed with state-of-the-art technology and their proven methodology, TAPS tackles disturbing paranormal activity head-on, leaving no stone unturned to reach the dead among the living.
In an exclusive with PopCulture.com ahead of the big episode "Keeper of the Light" streaming on Saturday, Oct. 1, Gonsalves reveals just what it was like reteaming with the TAPS members and what audiences can expect from the case. "Anytime we get to work with Amy and Adam and even Kris Williams on this season, Dustin and some other people, it's great," Gonsalves told PopCulture. "Amy and Adam, they're family. Obviously, we've known them for so long, very close friends. They investigate with a very similar methodology. So it's great. It's always a lot of fun. We have a blast."
The paranormal activity taking place at the Pensacola Lighthouse is familiar ground for the original team — well, all of them except Tango and Gonsalves, who reminded audiences the pair were not a part of the 2009 investigation, which found the team first exploring the grounds. Instead, the two were filming Ghost Hunters Academy , the spinoff series in the reality TV franchise. With the pair finally getting the opportunity now, Gonsalves said he was really excited to examine the site for the first time with Tango.
"When the opportunity came, the lighthouse reached out and said, 'We're having a lot of things happening, things that we think are stemming from possibly a newer section.' They don't really know why, but they think that the increase [in activity] was enough that they wanted to have it re-investigated... so, we did. [But] we needed a few extra hands, soo, who better to call than, of course, Amy, Adam and people we know and trust. What's nice about that is, sometimes people aren't quite familiar with the equipment and different things [but] you say to Amy, to Adam, to Dustin, to Kris, 'Hey we need a camera in this area, we need this covered, we need to put EMF here,' they know exactly what to do. It's great."
With Gonsalves having visited hundreds of sites in the almost 20 years of investigating for Ghost Hunters , he admits that while they all have a different energy , some sites just aren't scary at all at the end of the day. "The phenomena may have some precursors where you know when something may happen — sometimes it just jumps out at you, and it can be quite scary and startling. But for the most part, each case has its own, for lack of a better word, vibe to it. Sometimes they can be quite scary . Not scary, you want to run out of the place, but scary because things are happening that you don't quite expect. You don't know when it's going to happen. It happened right in front of you. It's loud or something moves and it startles you. So, that can be quite scary."

Gonsalves says the cases they deal with can get very dark in nature, like this one. But when you're dealing with such investigations, such a feeling is based a lot more on the "dark history" that surrounds that vibe than anything like dark phenomena. "Dark history, murders, things just that you don't really want to be thinking about for very long, those places, you can feel that. It puts you in a bit of a depression. Those places do feel a little bit different," he said of the vibe some of the places emit, like the Pensacola Lighthouse. "Sometimes at places that are supposedly really, really active, we're there for a week or two and there's not so much. Sometimes things are just happening all the time. It always, always different, which keeps it fun."
As the Pensacola Lighthouse's activity has increased since 2009, Gonsalves says a lot of "different" things can contribute to a spike in paranormal activity. "What we try to do anyway, is look at different patterns that may have changed. It could be something as simple as, all of a sudden they're allowing X amount more people to go through the building," he said. "So naturally, just the stories of the claims will naturally just increase, because there's more people going through. Other times, perhaps they've acquired an item or something. Now it's introduced a new phenomenon. Sometimes we need to keep in mind that we're not necessarily aware of time and space. What is just a few minutes here, maybe much longer to them. What is just a long time to us here, could just be a really quick moment to them."
He continued how a lot of times, we will follow a structure in the assumption that time is "very much linear," when in fact spirits and activity will not follow suit. "So we may say here, 'Oh gosh, nothing's really happened in quite some time, a month or so.' We don't know. But to the phenomena, no time has passed at all. It's just happening, so a lot of things, a lot of different variables. We try to look at a pattern, as to why the increase in activity would happen."
Ghost Hunters will begin streaming on discovery+ on Oct. 1 . All seasons of the show are currently available to stream as well. For more on the Ghost Hunters and all your paranormal news, keep it locked to PopCulture.com for the latest.

Ghost Hunters Returns with All-new Episodes and Special Guests Beginning Thursday, April 6 at 9 P.M. ET/PT
March 16, 2023
Jason Hawes has been investigating claims of paranormal activity since 1990 and is looked at as the leading authority in the field of supernatural and paranormal studies. Due to his pioneering efforts, the practice of paranormal investigation has advanced to international phenomenon status. Hawes has handled cases for law enforcement, religious organizations and U.S. government agencies.
Prior to the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” on discovery+ in 2021, he and his fellow investigators launched “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel in 2019. Hawes served as the co-creator, narrator, producer and star of “Ghost Hunters,” which ran for 11 Seasons on the Syfy Channel. Hawes is a New York Times best-selling author of six books on the paranormal and is the creator and co-host of the nationally syndicated radio show “Beyond Reality Radio.”
He is also the founder of the most visited paranormal website in the world, The-Atlantic-Paranormal-Society.com, and he has created a network of paranormal researchers known as “The TAPS Family” that spans the globe with bases in more than 40 U.S. States and 14 Countries. He has been featured on the “Today Show,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “The View,” “CNN, MSNBC, “Dateline,” “20/20” and more.
Steve Gonsalves, a former police officer, has been a public speaker and educator about paranormal phenomena for more than 18 years. Prior to the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” on discovery+ in 2021, he and his fellow investigators launched “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel in 2019. The paranormal pioneer helped pave the way for a worldwide paranormal explosion as a main cast member of the hit television series “Ghost Hunters,” which included the spin-offs “Ghost Hunters Live” and “Ghost Hunters Academy.”
Gonsalves started his work in paranormal studies at a very young age and is well-educated in the field, having investigated over 1,000 reportedly haunted locations. He had the privilege of working closely with famed investigator and paranormal pioneer Dr. William G. Roll (Poltergeist) at the Rhine Research Center, and Ed and Lorraine Warren in the field.
Along with his multiple appearances on a variety of paranormal series, Gonsalves executive produced the horror short “The Captured Bird,” alongside famed writer and director Guillermo Del Toro. He has also been a featured guest on numerous television shows and radio programs, including “The View,” “Fox and Friends,” “Steve Harvey,” “Larry King Live” and “Katie” featuring Katie Couric, “Dr. Oz” and “The Drew Barrymore Show.” Aside from his work on camera, Gonsalves has an untitled book in the works and recently he directed and produced the #1 documentary of 2021 “The House In Between.”
Dave Tango – better known as “Tango” – is one of the world’s leading paranormal authorities, best known as an investigator and tech manager on the hit shows “Ghost Hunters” and “Ghost Hunters Academy.” Prior to the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” on discovery+ in 2021, he and his fellow investigators launched “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel in 2019.
Tango’s origins in the paranormal can be traced back to the stories his father (an Elizabeth, NJ police officer) told him of his unexplained encounters while on the force. As a child, Tango was always intrigued by mysteries and the unknown, which led him to pursue magic as a serious hobby, and it remains an integral part of what makes Tango tick. He attributes this background to his knack for problem solving, and his ability to distinguish between what is real and what’s simply an illusion.
Trained by the best in the paranormal field, Tango’s ghost-hunting philosophy is to never be afraid to try new techniques and always experiment in the field. His trademark genuineness and sometimes strange curiosity are what fans most undoubtedly love about him. Aside from being the quirky one at his paranormal day job, Dave has been a fan of stranger things since long before it was cool – from 80s synth to video games.
Shari DeBenedetti became interested in the paranormal field at a very young age as she experienced many strange and unexplained things. But it wasn’t until her mid 20’s that she began to research and investigate the paranormal, because the house she lived in at the time was believed to be haunted.
DeBenedetti first met Jason Hawes at a paranormal event many years ago and has remained friends with him and other team members. She joined the team and was a paranormal Investigator on two seasons of “Ghost Hunters” and also appeared on the second season of “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel. She has now joined the two in the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” in 2021 on discovery+.
Born in Schenectady, New York and now living in Boston, DeBenedetti still conducts private investigations with local teams. When she’s not on the road filming, she enjoys spending time at home with her two children and works part-time at an engineering firm.

Steve Gonsalves on the TAPS Team’s New ‘Ghost Hunters’ Investigations
- ‘Ghost Hunters’: What to Expect From Season 15
- ‘Ghost Hunters’ Stars Talk ‘Getting Back to Basics’ in ‘Ghost Nation’ (VIDEO)
What better way to ring in 2022 than with the TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) and Ghost Hunters . The long-running series settles into its new home January 1 on discovery+ as original crew Jason Hawes , Steve Gonsalves , and Dave Tango join Shari DeBenedetti for a series of new spooky investigations.
They’ll bring in familiar faces from the supernatural world for many of the 12 episodes to help them uncover the haunts and activity lurking in the shadows of these locales. Here, Gonsalves gives us some of the chilling details in the season to come.
How would you explain your working dynamic now compared to when you first started together? How much has changed?
Steve Gonsalves: That’s a good question. TAPS has always been a large team. When you have a team that big, you need some structure. In the early days, you had Jason and Grant [Wilson] with me leading the tech side. That was awesome and worked for quite some time. Now we are all hands on deck where we put all of our heads together to get a resolution for our clients. It’s a different dynamic, but everything is exactly the same. Now we focus on the history and getting those facts straight. We always did historical research. We dive so thoroughly it really helps. We ended up finding in some of the investigations coming up that we’re fixing the history for some of the places.
Is there a particular episode you’re looking forward to viewers checking out most?
There are a few cases I went in thinking we’re going to go in one direction, and quite honestly, they go in the exact opposite. That is quite exciting. In the world of the paranormal, you don’t know when or if something is going to happen. I remember at White Hill Mansion, initially there was really not much happening. Then at the end of the night, everything starts happening. It’s chaos around us. Some of it was actually quite frightening. That’s a place I’m happy we were able to go to. I believe we were the first team to go in with this thorough and professional level to do an investigation there.
Rock legend Meat Loaf joins you on the House on Haunted Hill episode. How was having him on the scene again?
I was at a meet-and-greet not too long ago in Las Vegas, and someone said to me that they like how we invited all these guests to the show. They said, “It’s kind of like the old Scooby-Doo episodes in that you never know who is going to pop up on an episode.” They were right. Meat Loaf is certainly one of our favorites. He has become family. He legitimately loves this stuff. Just having downtime with him and listening to his stories. He’ll tell you all these amazing things that have gone on in his life and everyone he met and worked with. He actually taught me how to play the pipe organ in that case, which was pretty awesome. And if you know him, you get to call him Meat, so that is a lot of fun.
You also collaborate with other teams, including the Destination Fear gang and even the Ghost Brothers.
The Destination Fear gang have become very close friends. We worked out of Old Joliet Prison. Bringing their vibe and energy combined with what we did was honestly a one-two punch. We drew out all kinds of stuff. The Ghost Brothers like to think outside the box, which is really cool. To see their eagerness and learn the deeper techniques. We had some amazing things happen. Some of the communications at the [Cresson Sanitorium] were pretty dark. There was a murder there where someone got bludgeoned with a sledgehammer. A lot of awful things. We’re pretty sure we cracked that code. That was one of those episodes we were able to get the history straight.
Are we ever going to see the Ghost Adventures and Ghost Hunters crew work together?
I would love that. We’ve all met each other. I’ve hung out with Zak [Bagans] and those guys a few different times. They are really awesome. Whenever you bring two different techniques and protocols and investigation styles, you’re going to be able to really draw a lot out. For whatever reasons, people create this Ghost Adventures and Ghost Hunters or TAPS where it’s one or the other. We get together and have drinks. They are all really nice and super cool. I’m down to work with them.
It’s never too early to think about a Halloween special. Any destination you’ve always wanted to explore?
We have tossed around a few different ideas. Maybe going back to Waverly Hills, the Disney World of the paranormal. Always things happening. We’ve been there quite enough though. Villisca Axe Murder House is a place that has always intrigued me. The macabre nature of it. We’ve been focusing on private residences and helping people. That has been quite rewarding at this phase of our investigations. In terms of Halloween, a private residence might be a little stale. One of the larger places outdoors like Lake Shawnee would be cool for us to do.

COMPLETE COVERAGE OF POP CULTURE CONVENTION ENTERTAINMENT AROUND THE WORLD!
Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango Discuss the Discovery+ Return of ‘Ghost Hunters’
For Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango – two of the main investigators from the long-running television show Ghost Hunters – investigating the paranormal has evolved over the years, with advances in equipment and updates to protocols.
But the core philosophy of Ghost Hunters has always remained the same, they explained, which is to try to determine whether more earthly reasons are contributing to someone’s experience.
“There are people who come to conventions and they say ‘that’s why we watch you because sometimes you don’t catch something,’” Tango said. “Sometimes there is a case and there’s nothing happening there and they respect us for that and I appreciate that about them.”
Ghost Hunters , led by lead investigator Jason Hawes, first premiered back in 2004. The show follows Hawes, Gonsalves, Tango, and Shari DeBenedetti as they investigate reports of hauntings. They are members of the group TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society), based in Rhode Island. A revival of the series is premiering with a new season sneak peek on Halloween on the streaming service discovery+.
The approach of trying to debunk a haunting has reaped positive results for homeowners and business owners who seek the team’s help.
Gonsalves recalled one case where a woman was afraid to sleep in her upstairs bedroom because of a red glow she was seeing. “She was terrified,” he said.
In trying to help her, the team wanted to recreate the conditions in which the woman had the experience.
“The tv was on, all the lights were off except for the hallway light. We saw that at least, I’d say, once, maybe twice a day, there would be a commercial that would come on the screen. It was actually a Verizon commercial and at the end of it this big, red logo came up. The whole screen turned red,” Gonsalves said. “What that did was it bounced off this crystal vase thing she had in the kitchen and projected a light over to the staircase and that helped her. She was no longer afraid to go upstairs to go to bed. If we didn’t recreate the condition in which she had the experience and if we weren’t trying to disprove it, then that would have just been a ghost and she’d still be terrified of it.”
Gonsalves said while the team doesn’t assume ghosts are the reason for all activity, sometimes that possibility is hard to ignore.
“We are always trying to disprove things. We don’t think anything is a ghost right away unless it’s so obvious, which does happen,” he explained. “There are times when a few things happened to us in this season coming up where no questions need to be asked. We just looked at each other and say, ‘oh boy, it’s going down.’ Sometimes you don’t get the chance to try and disprove it. Sometimes it just happens and there’s no doubt in your mind.”
However, Gonsalves said 80 percent of cases can be disproved.
The Halloween episode will feature the group’s investigation of the Missouri State Penitentiary, which TAPS has investigated before.
“In the last 6 to 7 years, the activity has just ramped up, and ramped up to a point where they can’t keep a security staff,” Gonsalves said. “We did have a good reason to go back there.”
The episode will feature other familiar faces to Ghost Hunters’ viewers, including Amy Bruni and Adam Berry, who have since started their own show Kindred Spirits .
At one point in the upcoming episode, Gonsalves and Tango locked themselves in a gas chamber.
“It sounds grisly and it was, but it was a great technique and we did have some amazing experiences,” Consalves said.
Researching the history of a location has become a much bigger focus for the show. In past years, the team would do a preliminary investigation and then hand the case over to another team for “after care,” but now TAPS is investigating from beginning to end, Gonsalves said.
“We are bringing resolution, we are doing really deep, deep, deep dives into all the history and fixing the history for a lot of these people in places, and that is quite rewarding,” Gonsalves said. He added that sometimes the research will uncover discrepancies between what the owners believed happened and what actually happened, such as finding out someone died hundreds of miles away in a hospital as opposed to the home, or finding out the correct identity of the deceased.
“We’re able to pinpoint who the person is through historical research and let them know it actually isn’t this person but it is this person and that is really cool,” Gonsalves said.
In addition to the history, the team has some new equipment to help with the investigations as well as a process they call “real-time analysis,” for which they focus on sounds – through headphones connected to a digital recorder – so they can analyze in the moment as things happen. The team investigates in pairs, one wearing headphones and one not.
Tango said this season also brings back the TAPS van, a fixture from the show. “She’s just as much a part of the team as any other team member. When I sat in that van, I was like, ‘here we go, this is it.’”
The show has also led to a longstanding friendship between the cast. Gonsalves has known Hawes since the early 1990s, and is best friends with Tango. The two first worked together in 2005 when Tango was a guest on an investigation of the Beechwood Mansion in Newport, RI.
“He instantly started pranking me. It just naturally started to happen,” Tango recalled about Gonsalves. However, Gonsalves has taught him how to be level-headed in approaching a potential haunting, Tango said.
Gonsalves said Tango – besides his ability to take a good-natured ribbing – brings a different perspective to the job. “He processes things much differently than I do and it’s a great complement to how my brain works. A lot of times, I don’t know where to turn on a case or don’t know where to turn on certain things. The perspective he gives to it keeps us moving and going.”
Viewers of this season of Ghost Hunters will see some good evidence, Gonsalves said.
“What I really like is the mystery and the intrigue and the story and how it unravels,” he said.
The new season of Ghost Hunters sneak peek-Special Halloween Event will be available for streaming starting on October 31 on discovery+. Their brand new season debuts on discovery+ on January 1. If you’d like to hear more from Dave and Tango, you can also read our Ghost Nation interview with the pair right here .
I don’t have Discovery plus, when will it be on, just plain Discovery? I miss the cast, and show. It’s my favorite show
Nothing has been announced yet, but they have been slowly migrating some of them over after they premiere on discovery+.
If it is Ghost Hunters, where is Grant?
I think Grant was disappointed when he tried to restart up Ghost Hunters with new people instead of (no offense) the older casts. Maybe he’s embarrassed to show his face, I don’t really know. Ghost Nation had much higher ratings than the remake of Ghost Hunters with Grant and the new ghost investigators on the show.
I watch your show everyday when on love you guys
I hope u guys stay on the discovery +
Ghost Hunter has and will always be one of my favorite shows. I have watched from the beginning.

We Tried It: A 'Ghost Hunters' Set Visit Inside the Abandoned —and Haunted — St. Ignatius Hospital
Ghost Hunters , with original team members Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, Shari DeBenedetti and Dave Tango, is now streaming on Discovery+ and Travel Channel
Julie Jordan is an Editor at Large for PEOPLE. She has been with the brand for 25 years, writing cover stories and features and managing special issues including the Beautiful Issue and Sexiest Man Alive.
What It Is: A Ghost Hunters set visit inside the abandoned St. Ignatius Hospital in Colfax, Washington
Who Tried It: Julie Jordan , PEOPLE Editor at Large
I've experienced my fair share of movie and television set visits over the years but as a lover of all things paranormal, I was ecstatic when Discovery+ and Travel Channel reached out about going to an investigation site for their hit reality series Ghost Hunters .
The latest season, which reunites original team members Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, Shari DeBenedetti and Dave Tango, includes an episode about the abandoned St. Ignatius Hospital in Colfax, Washington.
Built in 1893, the hospital served patients in Whitman County until it was turned into an assisted living facility in 1964. Unused since 2003, the building was the perfect location for me to meet up with the team and experience a night for myself.
After flying into Spokane, I drove about an hour to the small city of Colfax and pulled up to the hospital. The decaying structure looked eerily dark inside, despite a few production lights. Hawes met me outside and safely escorted me up to the second floor where I sat down with the crew to discuss their investigation.
"So much has happened here," says Hawes. "I mean, at one point, you had the mentally insane, then they moved them to a different building. But some of them, because of their issues, forgot where they lived, so they came back. One fell down the elevator shaft and died, another fell out the window and died because the place was abandoned and left open. So many people have come through here."
During the previous night, Gonsalves heard an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) of screams in the hospital in real-time while listening to a digital recorder.
"I'm sitting right next to him," Hawes recalls. "I didn't hear anything but then he plays it back and there are screams."
Hawes founded T.A.P.S. (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) in 1990 after he witnessed what appeared to be a male entity walking before disappearing.
"I never really thought much of the paranormal until I saw something and from there, I was trying to understand how it could be real," he explains. "I just started looking. I started searching out the truth and shortly after, Steve and I met up and we started investigating. I mean, it was funny because we were looking for answers to our own questions. That's how T.A.P.S. became what it is."
As a fan of the show since it first aired in 2004, I appreciate the team's dedication to always try and debunk any activity as non-paranormal.
"I think you're always going to get your skeptics, but the fact of the matter is, we've always been about keeping it real," says Hawes. "You call me into your house to figure out if you have a haunting, you might not like what I tell you, but I'm not there to be your friend. I'm there because you called me in for help. And all of these guys and girls think the same way."
"We're on the same page," says Tango, who became intrigued with the paranormal after having an experience where he sensed an energy in a cold spot. "We know what we're doing here. We're all doing it for the same reasons, the right reasons. And that's how I look at it as well."
Adds Gonsalves: "Some of our highest rated shows, or at least most memorable for a lot of our fans, are shows when we don't even find anything paranormal."
For DeBenedetti, whose first paranormal experience involved being grabbed by an unseen force in her house, it's all about the teamwork: "We all have the same mindset of where we need to go and how we can work together," she says.
While all of them are resolved to face any fear, there have been many times over the years when they've been spooked.
"Ghosts, I mean they don't scare us. It intrigues us," Hawes insists. "When a sound happens, you might get startled, but we run towards it. We're going to try figure out what it is, where the problem is."
After we finished talking, the team scattered to finish up their various production duties while I cautiously ventured into the hospital and slowly made my way from floor to decrepit floor—including the former morgue. Even with a borrowed flashlight, I was still terrified to turn each corner.
Having heard about all the complex's past paranormal activity — shadow figures, disembodied voices, people being touched — only heightened my senses. Every little noise made me jump.
But with Hawes' voice in my head, I forged ahead and didn't run out of the building, even when my instinct tried to convince me that was the smart thing to do. The evening left me with a new appreciation for the team's collective energy and their ability to face the unknown for the sake of their fans.
Just like St. Ignatius, every case they investigate "is so interesting because it's like we're putting pieces of a puzzle together to try to figure it out," says Hawes.
And he wouldn't want to take it on with anybody else. "I mean the most important thing is, we're a family," he adds. "We really are."

Based on This Instagram Pic, It Doesn't Look like Ghost Hunter Dave Tango Is Single
You might be wondering if Dave Tango, who's in ghost-hunting reality TV shows like 'Ghost Hunters' and 'Ghost Nation' is single, married, or in a relationship. Does a guy who hunts ghosts for a living have time for a relationship?
Oct. 19 2019, Updated 3:59 p.m. ET
You probably know real-life Ghostbuster Dave Tango from the shows Ghost Hunters , Ghost Hunters Academy, and Ghost Nation . In the latest episode of Travel Channel's new paranormal show Ghost Nation , "A Nightmare in the Nursery," Dave Tango and his crew ( Jason Hawes and Steve Gonsalves) travel to Michigan to investigate a ghost that's haunting the roof over the baby's room.
Ghost Nation is the more intense of all the ghost shows, since it's all about ghost hunters who call the pros (Dave, Jason, and Steve) to help them when they can't crack the case by themselves. If you're a fan of paranormal activity and love watching a good ghost hunt , then you probably know the crew well. In fact, you've probably wondered...can a ghost hunter live a normal life? Can they have relationships? Friends? Kids? A life outside of (real) ghosting?
Tonight 10/9c on Travel Channel! This was intense! Cases with children involved are always a priority. Don't miss it! Posted by Dave Tango on Friday, October 18, 2019
In the case of paranormal pro Dave Tango, have you ever wondered if he's married?
Does the dude even have time for a relationship? We looked into Dave Tango's personal life to see if the Ghost Nation star was married or dating anyone. While there's no indication of a relationship on the internet, it does look like Dave is wearing a band on his ring finger in an Instagram post from June 2019. The ring doesn't look ornamental (although, hey, you never know), so chances are...Dave is married.
Unfortunately for us, we don't know who Dave's wife is (if he is married, that is). The guy is super private, which totally makes sense for a ghost hunter, right? Why would someone who hunts ghosts for a living put his personal life out there? Ghosts might be able to use Google too, you know. And I wouldn't want a ghost knowing very much about my whereabouts thankyouverymuch.
Here's what else we know about Dave Tango.
According to multiple sources on the internet , the 34-year-old ghost hunter is from Linden, New Jersey. He attended The Center School as a child, which is a charter school for kids who are "emotionally disturbed," or have special needs. We don't exactly know why Dave attended (maybe he was already sensitive to paranormal activity at a young age). At this point, we don't know how he got into ghost hunting professionally, or how he became to be a reality show star.
We do know that before getting involved with ghosts, Dave did magic shows.
"I used to perform professional magic shows for children and adults alike, so I still have a fond interest in magic and illusions," Dave said, according to Fandom .
We do know Dave likes Disney. In April 2019, he posted a photo to Instagram with a caption saying,"Even if I'm just spending the day walking around @DisneySprings , there's still no place more magical to me than Disney. Here's me looking back while on my way to Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar for my favorite libation: the Bedtime Story."

Here's Dave on a Disney Cruise.
He might be vegan (or at least really enjoys vegan meatballs and attended the New Jersey VegFest, a vegan food festival).

He predictably takes Halloween very seriously. But not in the way you'd think (in 2012, Dave dressed up as a chair).

What's Dave Tango's net worth?
These things are almost always an estimation, but according to Net Worth Post , Dave is worth $1 million , thanks to his involvement with so many ghost shows.
According to Twitter, Dave still resides in New Jersey (his Myspace says he's in Winfield Park , but it's unclear when the page was last updated).

Dave tango wiki/bio, age, wife, kids, net worth, facts..
Dave Tango is a renowned paranormal investigator and television personality, who has been fascinated by the supernatural since his childhood. He is best known for his role as a chief investigator and evidence analyst on the hit Syfy series Ghost Hunters, where he explored haunted locations with his team of experts and captured compelling evidence of paranormal activity. He also appeared as a mentor and instructor on the spin-off show Ghost Hunters Academy, where he trained aspiring ghost hunters in the techniques and tools of the trade. Dave Tango has a passion for uncovering the mysteries of the unseen world, and a talent for sharing his findings with the audience. He is one of the most respected and popular figures in the field of paranormal research. Dave is also a huge fan of new gadgets and often spends most of his money on new gadgets. In this article, we take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Dave Tango.
Upbringing & Education
Dave has always been sensitive to paranormal activity. From a young age, Dave was obsessed with finding the answers. Born on the 20th of March 1985, Dave spent much of his early life in Linden, New Jersey. Growing up Dave attended The Center School, which is a charter school for kids who are emotionally disturbed. While Dave has shown no signs of emotional disturbance, his sensitivity to the paranormal could be the major reason for attending the school. Dave also developed an interest in magic and illusions.
After graduating from high school, Dave started working as a magician. When asked about his early days, Dave revealed that,
“I used to perform professional magic shows for children and adults alike, so I still have a fond interest in magic and illusions”.
But before long, Dave’s interest diverted toward the paranormal. He joined The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) as an investigator and evidence analyst. He rose to fame as one of the original cast members of the Syfy TV series Ghost Hunters, which ran for 11 seasons from 2004 to 2016. He also appeared as a mentor and instructor in the spin-off series Ghost Hunters Academy, which aired from 2009 to 2010.
After SYFY’s Ghost Hunters wrapped up in 2016, so did Dave’s involvement in it. Dave remained away from reality TV series for three years before returning with Ghost Nation. The series followed the endeavors of Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves , and Dave Tango, as they tackle situations that cannot be tackled by normal Ghost Hunters. The series launched its first season on the 11th of October, 2019, and closed its shop after two seasons on February 27, 2021.
Return to Ghost Hunter
Dave Tango returned to Ghost Hunters in 2022, along with Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves and Shari DeBenedetti. They reunited for the revival of the show that is now airing on discovery+ 1 . They are revisiting their most chilling cases and investigating new hauntings across the country.
Dave Tango has an estimated net worth of $1.3 Million as of 2023. His main source of income is his TV career as a paranormal investigator. He earns money from appearing on Ghost Hunters and other shows, as well as from doing live events and appearances with his fellow TAPS members. He also sells merchandise related to his brand, such as T-shirts, hats, and books. He has a loyal fan base who follow him on social media and support his endeavors. Dave Tango is one of the most successful and well-known personalities in the field of paranormal investigation.
Personal Life: Dave Tango Wife and Kids
For all the professional exploits there to see, Dave handles his affairs and relationship secretly away from the glaring spectacle of the media house. It would be an educated guess, a man in the ’40s like Dave to be married if not at least once. But for all our wild imagination we can not tell for sure if Dave is married or not. Even after a long scroll through his considerably famous social media pages, we are still left to wonder about his marital status. Dave is not known to have any children.
Parents & Siblings
Dave’s family has been supportive of his career choices and hobbies. His father, Bruce Tango, is a former police officer and a paranormal investigator and a member of The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS). He often joins Dave in his investigations and shares his insights and experiences. Dave’s mother, whose name is not publicly known, is also fond of the paranormal and enjoys watching Dave’s shows. Dave has a brother named John Tango, who is not involved in the paranormal field but is a police sergeant.
Dave Tango has a close bond with his family and considers them as his inspiration and motivation. He often posts pictures of them on his social media accounts and expresses his gratitude and love for them. He also likes to spend time with them whenever he is not busy with his work or traveling to different locations.
Dave Tango was born in 1985…. that would make him 35, NOT 40 yrs.
Yes so being a man in his 40’s like you posted would be married at least once? That would make sense if it were only true. Someone didn’t read the bio before they wrote that garbage. Since it clearly states he was born in 1985 and therefore be in his mid 30’s. So how much other stuff have you people at this blog not did real homework on? Wtf this stuff should be easy.

Dave Tango: The Ghost Hunters Investigator is Still Exploring the Supernatural
Unraveling the nature of the inexplicable, ‘Ghost Hunters’ follows paranormal investigator Dave Tango along with a team of highly seasoned professionals in a series of bewildering situations. The Syfy Channel reality television show features a group of inquisitive individuals who undertake the horrifying task of visiting a haunted property to debunk mysteries and manage the fantastical elements. As one of the prime investigators and evidence analyst, Dave’s presence in the team has continued to be consequential. Given his place in the uncovering of the mystical, fans have grown curious to know more about the reality star and his life. So, if you’re wondering the same, look no further because we’ve got all the answers right here!
Dave Tango Grew Up in New Jersey
View this post on Instagram A post shared by Dave Tango (@davetango)
Born on March 20, 1985, Dave grew up around the love and adoration of his parents and elder brother, John. He was brought up in Linden, New Jersey, where he attended The Center School. Dave was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome as a child, a condition that affects the nervous system. He was thus enrolled in an educational institution known for catering to the services of children with special needs. Like his son, Dave’s dad, Bruce Tango, also shares the same passion for paranormal investigation.
The retired cop even appeared in several episodes of ‘Ghost Hunters’ to find and assuage mystical elements. One of his remarkable experiences included the investigation at the Burlington County Prison. He has even worked on a horror movie inspired by the terrifying events of his childhood, entitled, ‘The Staring Man.’ Now, the 38-year-old continues to embrace new challenges and opportunities with the support of his loved ones.
Dave Tango is not Foreign to the Haunted World
Before beginning his foray into the world of the supernatural, Dave used to be a magician. Enchanted by the power of magic and illusions, he used to perform professional shows for children and adults alike. Finally, in 2005, he joined hands with The Atlantic Paranormal Society and kickstarted his journey as one of the prime investigators in ‘Ghost Hunters.’ He continued his association with the worldwide paranormal television show for more than a decade. He rejoined the cast in 2021 and has continued his association with the pioneers of paranormal investigation. Over the years, Dave hasn’t just lent his expertise as a sound specialist and technical expert but also aided his colleagues in decrypting countless mysteries.
Having visited numerous haunted locations in his tenure, Dave has become renowned for his brave-hearted dedication to investigations. While his levity has added another layer to the fantastical series, he has since expanded his career manifold. Dave has starred in the ‘Ghost Hunters’ spin-off, ‘Ghost Hunters Academy.’ He has also appeared in ‘Destination Truth’ and ‘The World Within.’ His investigative nature, coupled with his curiosity to separate illusion from reality, has awarded him with enough experience to enter the paranormal world with absolute certainty. Naturally, the expert is not afraid to try new techniques and evolve experientially.
Dave Tango’s Love Life is Interesting
While his penchant for solving mysteries and uncovering the fantastical has kept him in the limelight, it seems that the television personality likes to keep other aspects of his life under wraps. Dave has never publicly announced his relationship status, nor has he alluded to the prospect of marriage. However, clues from his social media profile have often led fans to speculate about the nature of his personal life. Time and again, Dave has posted a close-up photo that offers a glimpse of his ring finger.
With a ring that looks closely similar to a wedding band, fans have been curious to find out if he’s married or not. Nevertheless, despite the different indications that point to something more, Dave has decidedly kept quiet on the matter. Despite keeping his personal life under wraps, Dave continues to share other interests that pique his curiosity. The television personality is a big fan when it comes to Disney and even likes to walk around Disney Springs when his schedule permits.
Dave is a supporter of local brands and enjoys going to food festivals and exploring new places. In tune with his love for the paranormal, Dave awaits Halloween and takes his costumes quite seriously. He is an avid fan of 80s synth as well. When the television personality is not occupied with commitments, he likes to play video games and enjoy his free time. Naturally, we look forward to all the new adventures that lie in Dave Tango’s future.

Two to Tango is the second episode of the fourth season of Ghost Hunters.
Summary [ ]
William Tango, a retired cop, amateur paranormal investigator and father to TAPS' Dave Tango was checking out Burlington County Prison in his hometown when he had an intense paranormal experience that required verification. Dave asked Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson to lend a hand, and they agreed, leading to the first of this week's two cases. Exploring the prison, the team runs into a series of false alarms. Kris Williams shows Dave that its rounded walls can cause spooky but explainable acoustic anomalies. At the gallows, Steve Gonsalves and Dave get spiky electromagnetic readings, but nothing significant. Jason and Grant see flashing lights through a window that turn out to be headlights reflecting off an interior museum sign. But in the women's wing, Jason and Grant detect a strong cigarette odor when no one anywhere around them is smoking.
And most mysterious, Jason climbs to the third floor and becomes so woozy he must sit. Dave and Kris are asked to each enter the area without being told of Jason's incident. Both feel a little disoriented.
The analysis over the next few days yields mixed results. The team watches some video tape as a figure moves from left to right at the end of a hallway that has no doors, a figure that apparently gives off no heat.
Jason and Grant sit with museum attendant Marisa Bozarth to review the encounters and the video clip. She finds it a "little unnerving." The TAPS team describes the prison as being "residually haunted", which means there are impressions left by prisoners but no entities that are aware of the living around them.
In their second investigation, acting case manager Heather Drolet describes a possible instance of poltergeist in a Norwich, Conn., home. A four-year-old girl believes three entities are plaguing her.
The team meets Teresa McArthur, who moved her family from North Carolina and into her mother's home seven months before. Since then, her daughter Arella says "Peter", a woman in a flowery dress and another presence are haunting her. Teresa has moved Arella into three rooms only to have the same things happen.
The investigation begins at nightfall. Jason and Grant determine a leaky fitting might be the reason the family thinks the water turns on by itself. Also, they realize a bedroom door is loose enough that a breeze can shut it.
In the basement, they find high electromagnetic-field readings directly underneath the living room couch. High emission like that can cause people to feel uneasy, and a young girl might be especially susceptible.
Kris, Heather and Steve sweep the rooms for evidence of the paranormal but find nothing. The following day, Steve and Kris come up with only one very iffy audio clip, which Grant dismisses.
Jason and Grant tell Teresa that all the evidence points to Arella suffering separation anxiety resulting from their move north. They suggest some parenting techniques for Arella.
Teresa's thankful for the help and that there's nothing beyond her control occurring.
