You’ve seen them on TV. You know them by their quirky antics. (Think: Laurence Martin from Baggage Battles and Aaron Goodwin from Ghost Adventures). But do you ever wonder what their lives are like off-screen, after the film crew has gone home? Now is your chance — and we want to know which Travel Channel’s host’s “day” is your favorite!
Each week we’re launching a new set of polls, and once the polls close Monday, April 8, we’ll tally the top competitors. We’ll then ask — in one final vote — for you to decide which Travel Channel host has the coolest life, as chronicled in “A Day in the Life” — TravelChannel.com’s award-winning Web Series that just snagged a Cablefax Award for “Use of Video/Moving Image.”

Something terrifying is lurking in the woods, something evil is creeping around the hallways — something bad is looking to harm the innocent. Does this sound like something you’d like to come home to after a long day at work? Yeah, neither do Browns Summit residents Sheila and Jimmy. This unassuming couple fears that their disabled daughter is being attacked by paranormal entities in their North Carolina home.
The Dead Files’ Steve and Amy seek to find some answers. In their separate, shocking investigations, Steve uncovers past evidence of a fatal train disaster in the area and a hate crime in the couple’s home, while Amy confronts a beastly, dog-like apparition in the house that she fears can kill anyone who gets in its way.
Steve and Amy’s shocking findings are finally revealed to the family in an emotional and unsettling climax. Will Sheila and Jimmy be forced to move or will they be able to exorcise the demons haunting their home and live a safe, normal life? Find out in an all-new episode, tonight @ 10|9c.
Plus, check out these exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from tonight’s episode, The Beast.
And, don’t miss your chance to chat live with Steve and Amy on Facebook tonight after the premiere @ 11|10c.

On this week’s episode of The Bachelor, Sean Lowe and his potential soul mates traveled to the beautiful Trang province of Thailand for a series of romantic dates to some of the area’s best-kept secrets. The “hunky” bachelor and his ladies stayed at one of country’s most luxurious beachfront resorts, the Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa. The hotel offered the couples easy access to fairytale islands, mangrove reserves, rainforests and stunning waterfalls — surely making it all the more difficult for Sean to only hand out 2 roses!

Last night on Bizarre Foods America, Andrew Zimmern traveled to the Hawkeye State. From the moment he landed, he was elbow-deep in pork! First he visited La Quercia, an Italian-inspired artisanal meat producer. Next, he traveled to Rustik Rooster Farm, where farmers have perfected the art cross-breeding (and then slow-roasting!) some of the most delicious pigs in America. Andrew’s trip to Iowa was one for the books — relive moments from his pork-filled journey, watch episode highlights and see behind-the-scenes photos. Then, be sure to tune in next Monday at 9|8c, when Andrew visits Alaska!
