Travel Channel
Travel Channel is betting that amateur ghost hunters stumbling through locked-down abandoned mental hospitals, prisons and haunted houses might do the trick.

Zak Bagans, last seen cursing up a storm at unseen spirits on his show "Ghost Adventures," is challenging amateur ghost-hunters to go into spooky places... and come back with evidence of the paranormal.

The new show is called "Paranormal Challenge," and in this scene Bagans points out the spot in Philadelphia's Eastern State Penitentiary where inmates sent prison guards to their deaths by throwing them over the railings.

That's gotta leave some ticked off spirits behind, right?

Personally, I don't care if the amateurs can out-ghost Bagans.

I'd just like to see if they can out-cuss him.
