Best friends Dalen Spratt, Juwan Mass, and Marcus Harvey are one of the Southeast’s most dynamic paranormal investigation teams. They lead Destination America’s new series Ghost Brothers on a mission to uncover whether some of the South’s legendary “haunted” houses are the real deal. Raised in religious households, Dalen, Juwan and Marcus were taught that “messing” with the dead is dangerous business, but some unexplained experiences drove them to explore the paranormal firsthand. Blending natural curiosity with comedic flair, these charismatic characters offer a fresh, funny and unique take on the spirit world.
By day, Dalen and Juwan are fashion designers with their own label called Loren Spratt, though, in their off time, they have been investigating haunted houses, hotels and cemeteries together since 2011. Marcus, a comedian and “Barber to the Stars,” met Dalen in 2009 and now, as an “experienced” ghost hunter and tech enthusiast, he considers himself the Peter Venkman of the trio.
“We’re excited to join the Destination America family and prove that there can be a little humor in the unknown,” said Dalen Spratt. “But the best part about Ghost Brothers is that THIS time, the black guys make it out of the haunted house alive!”
Dalen Spratt – Leader of the group, Dalen identifies, researches, and organizes the locations that the Ghost Brothers investigate. He is adventurous, bold and willing to try most anything to make contact with ghosts. When he was 7 years old, Dalen saw an apparition in his grandmother’s house and that experience is forever ingrained in his memory. Born and raised in Dallas, his mother is head pastor of a church and his religious upbringing made him realize that there must be some higher power governing us all, having a profound impact on his life and how he approaches exploring the paranormal.
Juwan Mass – Juwan’s fascination with the paranormal began when he started ghost hunting in graveyards at the age of 12 in his native Chicago. He experienced drastic temperature drops and eerie shifts in energy that he wasn’t able to explain, physical sensations that piqued his curiosity and drove him to explore more. In 2005, Juwan and Dalen met as fraternity brothers at Clark Atlanta University and bonded over a shared interest in the unknown. In 2011, they started investigating haunted locations that included cemeteries, hotels and churches, and have been on a mission to uncover evidence of the paranormal ever since.
Marcus Harvey – The newest member of the group, Atlanta-based Marcus is a barber with celebrity clientele, and began cutting Dalen’s hair six years ago. When he shared his paranormal experience with Dalen – of being asleep and having a vivid sensation of an entity putting their hands over his mouth – Dalen invited Marcus to join he and Juwan on their next hunt, and it’s been the Ghost Brothers trio ever since. Marcus considers himself the charmer of the group, the playful character who brings the humor but also handles the tools and technology for the team.
