One of the biggest differences Ghost Adventures fans will notice in House Calls is that Zak Bagans doesn’t join the rest of the crew on site to investigate. He does join them remotely, however.But why isn’t he physically with them?
Is he okay? Are the cases too terrifying and dangerous for him? Or is there another reason he stays behind?
Let’s first examine what Zak Bagans’ latest spin-off series is about. That might yield some clues.

About Ghost Adventures: House Calls
In House Calls, Zak Bagans leads a team of paranormal investigators consisting of himself, Aaron Goodwin, Billy Tolley and Jay Wasley. They respond to urgent calls for help from desperate homeowners thrust into turmoil from unexplained activity inside their homes.
Except, when it comes time to investigate, Bagans isn’t with them. Rather than accompanying Goodwin, Tolley, and Wasley to the locations after hearing each family’s haunted account, Bagans stays behind to oversee the investigation from his headquarters.
He’s still very much with them in spirit, however, and actively participates from his remote location, where he provides insight and applies experimental tactics from his unique vantage point.
After the team analyzes their evidence, Bagans shares the findings in a one-on-one meeting with each homeowner, offering them much-needed advice and resolution.

All About an Experiment
As E! Online points out, there’s some scary “sheet” happening in the lives of these haunted homeowners —and by extension, the investigations of said homes. Residents describe horrors like “a black shadow with red eyes” and the word “death dripping down the walls.”
Bagans isn’t kidding when he says the team is basically entering a “demonic hornet’s nest” to conduct some of these investigations.
But intrepid investigators that they are, they’re willing to risk mind, body, and even soul to help out. After all, they’ve spent decades investigating ghostly activity to gain a better understanding of the afterlife. Now they have a chance to use that knowledge to help frightened families who believe they’re under paranormal attack.
However, helping isn’t always a clear-cut process. There’s some experimenting involved, and it appears that’s why Bagans doesn’t physically join the others for the on-site investigation. As he says in episode 1, it’s all part of the experiment. He wants to see how it affects his investigators.
Of course, I’m not 100 percent certain that’s the only reason he’s stayed behind. With his multi-project discovery+ deal and Las Vegas Haunted Museum, Bagans is a busy businessman.
He also doesn’t grant many interviews so I haven’t had a chance to verify it with him directly. But if I ever got the chance, I would. (And if it happens, you know I’ll post an update!)
What would you ask Zak Bagans if you ever had the chance?
Courtney Mroch is a globe-trotting restless spirit who’s both possessed by wanderlust and the spirit of adventure, as well as obsessed with true crime, horror, the paranormal, and weird days. Perhaps it has something to do with her genes? She is related to occult royalty after all. Marie Laveau the voodoo queen is one of her ancestors.

I would ask Zak if anything ever followed him home. I’m sure he’s been asked that before, but still.
I think it’s a great question! I’d use it and tweak it only slightly to ask if anything ever followed him home that he wanted and kept. lol
He’s just scared
Does this mean he is ending the original ghost adventures series? I really hope not.

Dee, at the beginning of the latest House Calls episode Zak referenced Aaron being “greatly effected” at their Ghost Adventures lock down a couple of days ago. I don’t know for sure when the House Calls episode was filmed, but it seems to imply that they are still doing the original series as well. Honestly I would be very surprised if they stopped doing the original even if Zak stopped investigating altogether unless it was a rights issue. The brand and audience is just too hard to give up and I imagine it doesn’t all transfer over to spinoffs like House Calls.
Hi Dee. Solem is right. The regular Ghost Adventures isn’t going anywhere. Zak signed a deal with discovery+ for I believe another 3 years of it. This is just one of many specials that was also part of the deal he signed. You’ll continue to see LOTS of Zak!
You are so right! Zak signed a 3-year deal with discovery+ for more regular GA episodes and also more specials because his brand makes bank. lol So, yep, you totally hit the nail on the head!
With Zak’s health issues, severe asthma, I would say he’s staying back because of Covid. He’s been careful since and the other investigators are always in mask in the houses.
You bring up a very good point, Amanda! What if it IS health concerns that having him semi-sitting out the investigation part of this show? Could be! Thanks for the comment!
I love Zak n the boys whatever they do and im a 66 yr old grandmother Rock on boys from the UK
Zak developed a mast addiction during the pandemic so he has to stay home in his room in the dark and complete the 90 days reboot.
He is a germaphobe and afraid to leave his home. So he lets everybody else do his work while he’s making all the money!

The new show is awesome, but I miss Zak being physically with the guys! No matter what, you guys are totally the bomb dignity! You guys are truly the best of the best
I believe he was in a very terrifying plane ride and he refuses to fly anymore. I watched a live Instagram chat where he says he refuses to fly because of that experience.
Oh wow. That’s really sad if that’s the case. I guess we’ll find out if he’s conquered his fear and hits the road on future regular GA episodes? Thanks for the comment.
i also heard he’s afraid to fly because if a bad flying experience!!!!!
Its actually because He doesn’t like to fly. Which is also why in the regular show they often arent going too far.
This definitely seems to be the popular consensus. Thanks for weighing in!
I just thought he didn’t join the investigations because he’s high risk (health wise) and due to covid19, he isn’t willing to chance it…that’s just what I was thinking.
A lot of people think this may factor in too. It could be a combo of the not wanting to fly/health issues. Or even those plus wanting to try a new way of investigating. Now I’d really love to know what he’d say. lol

I’m pretty sure something follow him home from Bobby Mackey’s? Also, after he touched the real Annabelle doll? I’m with Zak on flying…not a fan, but I do miss not seeing him with his crew.
I have heard them credit Bobby Mackey’s before with feeling like something attached to them. I think that also might’ve been where Aaron was and had trouble after leaving? But I can’t remember. One thing though, as you pointed out, between all the places he’s been and all he’s collected, if anyone could be haunted or have hitchhikers that followed him home, it’d be Zak!
He was getting really testy and angry towards Aaron and the rest of the crew as the seasons went on. His presence there seemed toxic and everyone was on edge around him.
Perhaps it’s his fear of flying, but his rage and attitude were really starting to bug me
Hey Jacquelyn! Zak did use to be more fun-loving once upon a time, didn’t he? Goofier and more easygoing. I haven’t heard hardly anyone else comment on how angry he seems now. Or full of “rage” to use your word, because that really sums it up better. But I’ve also noticed he snaps at the team more. Or he seems to. I don’t know, but I’m glad you brought this up.
What happened to this Mark and Debbie at the Washoe club in Virginia city in Nevada ?
GREAT question, Dawn!!!
I heard that Zak has developed a serious fear of flying, and it detracts from his ability to travel to and frequent locations as quickly as he used to.
One more thing … I heard that he took a LOT of guff for touching the Annabelle doll after he was specifically told by the Warren’s stepson NOT TO! It, supposedly, pushed him back a step and made him reanalyze his own ego and, subsequent, actions.
