Matt Moneymaker Criticizes SyFy For Shamefully Sending Dr. Meldrum Fake Thermal Footage Of Possible Bigfoot
Was the Vergas Hairy Man evidence on Syfy’s Haunted Highway too good to be true?
On July 3rd Syfy’s latest paranormal reality show, Haunted Highway, premiered and reviews have been mixed. The show stars Poker2Nite host Dana Workman, television producer Devin Marble, Ozzy Osbourne’s son Jack, and Syfy’s paranormal princess, Jael De Pardo. The show is filmed without a camera crew, so the scenes are all pretty shaky and could make the toughest sailor feel sea-sick at times.
The first episode went in search of the Bear Lake Beast in Utah (Utah’s Nessie) and all they found was a cattle/deer rib in an underwater cave. They then went to Vergas, MN to look for the Hairy Man who is described to be an aggressive Bigfoot. Jael and Devin went out to Squatch Hill to see if they could lure out the creature. After blasting some snowmobile sounds, knocking on wood, and a bunch of running around they managed to get a thermal image of a bipedal creature and they found a freshly broken branch along with some long hairs on a tree. This lead Jael to conclude that this was the closest she had ever come to encountering a Bigfoot. If this is all true, they have found more evidence than many Bigfoot researchers find in their lifetime.
In comes Dr. Jeff Meldrum to pop the bubble for everyone: yes, the creature on the thermal camera is bipedal but the hair appears to be human. This leads Jael and Devin to conclude that they were probably hoaxed since everyone in the small town knew they were there.
President of the BFRO and Finding Bigfoot star Matt Moneymaker is not pleased with SyFy at the moment. Moneymaker tweeted the following message, suggesting SyFy knowingly sent Dr. Meldrum a fake thermal footage to analyze.
