Grant Wilson shares real reason for leaving Ghost Hunters

After 8 seasons as a lead investigator for Ghost Hunters, SyFy’s leading paranormal series, Grant Wilson decided to step down this spring. Distraught fans speculated wildly about the real reasons behind the announcement, citing everything from a serious rift between Grant and Jason to marital difficulties rearing their ugly head for Grant.Ghost Hunters

According to Grant Wilson via his live interview on Dead Air last night, the decision to leave “Ghost Hunters” was purely a personal one. The schedule and filming of the show kept Wilson away from his family, which was always pulling at his heartstrings.

“The rigors of the show really beat me up.” he says and adds, “I felt like we [the Ghost Hunter Team] primed the pump and I could now walk away.”

Fans can rest assured that Grant’s family life is going well as he readjusts to a life apart from “Ghost Hunters.” He and his wife, Reanna, are working together to create family oriented games with Rather Dashing Games and spending time together performing in their band Carpet Shark.

Wilson is self-taught on both piano and guitar and is an accomplished artist – check out the artwork on Rather Dashing Games. Although Wilson intends to pursue the paranormal in private settings, he explains that his love and interest in the paranormal makes up about 20% of his interests and passions in life. Now, it’s time to devote some time to those others interests, he explains.

    I have grown to enjoy Ghost Hunters as they grew in their Ghost Hunting abilities. I really liked Grant and I was sorry when he left, but I understand. Our families should always come first. We must also follow all of our dreams. Good luck Grant and Reanna!

    Grant seemed like a nice and down to earth guy, and he added a lot to the show. I wish he would reconsider. The other two, Steve and Tango are very good, but Grant was special and seemed approachable and took the edge off the more severe and serious personality of Jason Hawes. Anyway, I wish him luck

    I really liked Grant and Jason working together as a team, for whatever reason he left is we all know is something he had to do. He is truly missed and the show goes on.Ghost hunters is truly a wonderful t.v. program. I believe as we all do is these hauntings are real, and I can’t wait until this new season 2016 starts.
