Four episodes into the new season and the Ghost Hunters International team decided that when it comes to hunting Mayan spirits, there will be blood. If you missed the episode that has people talking, here is the rundown:
Location: The Cahal Pech Mayan ruins in San Ignacio, Belize
History: The ruins of this ancient Mayan temple date back to 1200BC. The Mayans would perform human sacrifices to appease the gods.
So what did they do?
Susan Slaughter jumped in to volunteer her blood to the Mayan spirits.
She cut herself.

Extreme Paranormal (long cancelled) did a blood ritual as well and got hell for it. What were they thinking? Apparently it has caused some outrage, even with TAPS’ Jason Hawes, noting that kids will “try what they see”.
Sadly, this is the MAJOR problem I have with ghost hunting shows on TV. There are many people who think it is REAL, ACCURATE and will ATTEMPT to try it themselves. This makes me furious and shame on the GHI for pulling such an irrational, idiotic stunt for ratings.
