FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, AN ELITE TEAM OF RESEARCHERS HAVE THE CLUES TO FIND
ELUSIVE EVIDENCE IN TRAVEL CHANNEL’S UNCANNY NEW SERIES
’EXPEDITION BIGFOOT’ – PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4 AT 10 P.M. ET/PT
Team Believes an Advanced Algorithm is the Missing Key to Solving the Bigfoot Legend
Every year hundreds of eyewitnesses log their alleged encounters with the legendary creature Bigfoot. All told, there have been more than 10,000 reported modern-day sightings of Bigfoot in the continental United States, with more than one-third of them emanating from the Pacific Northwest. And while many have searched for the elusive beast, no one knows where or when this legendary cryptid will be seen next, nor have they put forth credible, indisputable evidence of the creature’s existence. Until now…
Old legend meets new modern-day technology as an elite team of skilled searchers are using an advanced data algorithm and groundbreaking science and tools to analyze five decades of Bigfoot sightings and to pinpoint when and where to encounter this elusive beast. With these results and gadgetry at their disposal, they now know the time and place to search for evidence of Bigfoot. Travel Channel’s new eight-part investigative-adventure series “Expedition Bigfoot,” premiering Wednesday, December 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, tracks the expert team throughout their harrowing experience and pioneering endeavor.
With a unique blend of expertise, the team – including Bryce Johnson (Expedition Operations); Dr. Mireya Mayor (Primatologist); Russell Acord (Ex-Military/Survivalist); Ronny LeBlanc (Bigfoot Researcher); and Ryan “RPG” Golembeske (Bigfoot Investigator) – may finally take one of the world’s greatest mysteries out of the pages of legend and lore and into reality. Throughout their three-week sojourn to an undisclosed, remote location in a 90,000-acre swath of land in central Oregon, they use the latest advanced technologies to narrow their search within the target zone. As the investigation intensifies, evidence that Bigfoot is in the area begins to pile up. Possible nesting sites, footprints and vocalizations lead the team to a hot spot where inexplicable events occur and one of the greatest pieces of video evidence in Bigfoot history is recorded.
“Travel Channel has assembled the very best team of experts in Bigfoot lore and science to give us proof of the creature’s existence once and for all,” said Matthew Butler, general manager, Travel Channel. “The journey is formidable, and the jeopardy is real. Skeptics and believers alike will both agree the trek this team makes is something they have never seen before.”
