Grant quit the show a couple years back.
It looks like a completely normal thing to do to me. Sometimes people walk around with their hands in their pockets, or half-way in, or like he has it in the video, where he just stuck his thumb in his pocket and left it. I have done this myself.
You didn't answer the question. Was it normal for this particular person to walk around acting like he had an artificial arm on one side? You've seen all the shows, you should know if this was normal for him.
You're grasping at straws, April. No one said that people never put their hands in their pockets or that this jackass never put his hand in his pocket. What we said was that it is unnatural for him, or anyone else, not to remove his hand from his pocket when he is pulled backward by "something" and is in danger of falling. If something had pulled him backward, as he pretended, and if you believe his antics, the pull was so hard that he raised his left arm. When a person is pulled backward and is about to fall on his ass, he uses both hands to break the fall! I'm sure people could find pictures of me with one hand in my pocket, but if I were walking along or standing around and felt something pull on my collar, you can damn well bet I would be using both hands. How did he know it wasn't a humongous spider on his collar that could get down inside his clothing and bite the crap out of him? The first reaction when you feel something on your collar is to start brushing frantically at your collar with both hands and turning around to try to see what's causing it or asking those around you if they see something on your collar. Even when he straightened his collar, he used only his left hand, keeping his right arm at his side. How many times have you seen someone straighten their collar with just one hand and why did he keep pulling the collar back up? Why not leave it down and see if the ghost would grab some other part of his clothing? Another thing is that if you're walking around in a supposedly haunted house and something grabs you by the collar, you're freaking terrified, you don't just act nonchalant about it the way he did. Also, why did the "ghost" always tug in the same spot the same way every time? This was one of the most obvious jobs of "faking it" that I've ever seen.
I watched Ghost Hunters a few times back when it first started and it didn't impress me at all and I always thought that most of it was faked. Didn't some people say that the reason that Grant Wilson left the show was because people were catching onto all of his little tricks? Even if the one called Jason isn't completely dishonest, I'm convinced that Grant is a total fraud.
There are a LOT of articles on the internet about what frauds these two goons are. One of them about the Halloween show of 2008 said: "Hawes, and his faithfully fraudulent counterpart, Grant Wilson, took so much flak that Wilson himself took the asinine step of writing a blog on his Myspace page accusing the people who dared to question them of just hating the paranormal field. Wrong move, cretin. They took so much more criticism for that PR screwup that Grant ended up deleting his post altogether."
I wouldn't be surprised if people catching on to his faking things was the reason Grant quit the show.
