'Finding Bigfoot' season 4 first look: Arkansas comes a knockin' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Countless television shows have proven that the supernatural sells, but so does the unknown. For three seasons now, Cliff Barackman, Ranae Holland, and their team have been looking for evidence of Bigfoot a.k.a. Sasquatch. In Finding Bigfoot, the team investigates tips it is given by embarking on adventures to try and prove that this species does indeed exist. But trying to prove something many believe to be the world’s most elaborate hoax isn’t an easy gig.

“Unfortunately when people think of Bigfoot, sometimes there’s a kneejerk response to the National Enquirer and that pop culture reference is back from the 70’s,” Holland said. “Whether you one hundred percent don’t believe Bigfoot’s real or you’ve seen a Bigfoot, each time you approach that subject, you really need to be as open‑minded as possible.  I still myself cannot wrap my head around to believe that there is an animal undiscovered.  I use the word ‘discovered’ loosely.  That we’ve been able to say tangibly, scientifically that there’s this animal out there.  However, there’s so much evidence.  You can’t just cynically write it off.  And that’s the point I want to make.”

The press tour reporters have spent nearly two weeks in a hotel interviewing actors and executives promoting TV shows. So when Animal Planet rolls out this panel the critics are, understandably, thinking: Show us bigfoot or GTFO.

A critic points out: If these guys actually find bigfoot, such huge news is not going to really stay quiet until a regular episode of Finding Bigfoot airs. One asks: Has Animal Planet run out of real animals to do shows about? Yet another wonders: First Animal Planet airs a mermaids special, now this — isn’t Animal Planet damaging its brand with this stuff? READ FULL STORY
