Among the most popular guests on After Hours AM/America’s Most Haunted Radio — Thursdays 9-11pE with hosts Joel Sturgis and Eric Olsen — are the stars of GHOST BROTHERS, Dalen Spratt, Juwan Mass, and Marcus Harvey, returning for a triumphant second season on TLC, Friday March 10 at 9/8c. The Ghost Bros will join us in the 10pE hours; at 9pE, Joel and Eric will plumb the week’s top paranormal news for your edification and amusement.
In the Season 2 premiere episode, the GHOST BROTHERS travel to New Castle, Indiana to investigate paranormal claims at the historic Thornhaven Manor. Reported to house negative energy that targets men, the bros set out to discover what the phenomena actually is. Other haunted hot spots explored in the second season of GHOST BROTHERS include a desolate sawmill nicknamed the “Mill of Death” in the bayou of Louisiana; the maze-like home of the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose; a haunted elementary school in Middletown, Ohio; the “White Witch” of Rose Hall in Montego Bay, Jamaica; and more.
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.
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.
