Everyone is wondering if the house in Indiana had something to do with Nick Groff’s departure. The Ghost Adventures Crew co-founder announced on his Twitter page last night that he is leaving the series after ten seasons.
Nick Groff said he will not be returning back to “Ghost Adventures” on the Travel Channel. He didn’t give any details as to why he is leaving the show. Some fans believe that he left the show due to an incident that happened at Zak Bagan’s demon house in Indiana. Bagans has been busy all year filming a documentary there. Other folks think that Groff left “Ghost Adventures” to work on his new series, “Ghost Stalkers” which debuted on Destination America last month.
“Thank you everyone for your support through the years! I’m writing to say that I will no longer be a part of Ghost Adventures on Travel Channel. I am honored to have helped build an amazing paranormal phenomena that has touched people’s lives all around the world. I am continuing to research and investigate all things paranormal as I start the journey through the next stage of my Life. Much respect and love to all my GAC and Ghost Adventures fans. See you all soon…” Groff said.
On November 4, Bagans said that he stopped the production of the demon house documentary film because the house became unsafe for his crew and he had to call a priest to come exorcise the house. Bagans didn’t comment on whether it was Groff who left the house. There is also no word if he was attached to the project or not.
“One of my production crew quit on the spot when we heard what the girl was doing when she was possessed. It was then I made the decision that the home was unsafe and called the priest to exorcise the house. The exorcism was unsuccessful, and things continued. For the safety of crew we halted production, and it’s been months since then. We plan to resume in December,” Bagans told said in an interview.
Bagans purchased the house in January for $35,000 and he started production for “The Demon House” back in April but had to temporarily shut down production in the summer due to unsafe conditions. Production for the documentary will resume in December.
Groff is the executive producer of the new Destination America series, “Ghost Stalkers” which kicked off on the Discovery Channel’s sister channel last month. “Ghost Stalkers” premiered on October 19. The series stars paranormal author John E.L. Tenney and actor Chad Lindberg.
“Travel Channel has decided to move on with ‘Ghost Adventures’ without Nick Groff. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors,” a spokesman from the Travel Channel said yesterday.
Groff and his wife also had a baby in September. Chloë Groff was born on September 2. Groff will have more time to spend at home with his new baby girl.
Update: Bagans reached out to Examiner today and informed us that Groff didn’t leave “Ghost Adventures” because of the Indiana demon house. He didn’t disclose why Groff left the show.
“Nick Groff did not quit because of the demon house. He had no involvement in that at all,” Bagans said.
