Ben Hansen is the lead host and investigator of the SyFy channel’s Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files. With three seasons on the air, the show focuses on recreating videos and photos of alleged paranormal events to see if they have a natural explanation, were hoaxed, or if they remain unexplained. The six person team takes on cases of ghosts, UFOs, Bigfoot, chupacabras, mermaids, and other unusual occurrences. Hansen graduated from the University of Utah and went to work investigating child physical abuse and sex crimes at the state level for several years before moving on to work for the FBI. He eventually landed in Hollywood, where he helped develop what would later become at hit paranormal show, Fact or Faked. Hansen is a spokesperson for Bushnell’s line of night vision equipment which can be found at www.nightvisionops.com. When he’s not filming, he travels the country lecturing, conducting public UFO and ghost investigating events, and developing new reality show projects.
