Ryan buell and sergey dating
Entertainment Weekly broke news that Ryan Buell, the lead in A&E's para-reality show Paranormal State, comes out as bisexual in his new book, Paranormal State: My Journey Into The Unknown, to be released Sept. Buell's announcement is a non-revelation for many in the paranormal entertainment industry who already knew about his orientation.
The show debuted in 2007, and is one of the top-rated paranormal investigative shows on television, trailing Ghost Hunters.
The show was produced by Four Seasons Productions International and Go Go Luckey Productions (which produced MTV's Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County, and A&E's now-cancelled Rollergirls).
Gary Auerbach and Julie Auerbach (who head Go Go Luckey Productions) and Betsy Schechter (Four Seasons) were the executive producers.
In the series debut, the audience is told that a young boy sees ghosts, but the audience is not able to see any evidence of this.

June 2008 Paranormal State was awarded The Truly Terrible Television (TTTV) Award for peddling pseudoscience and superstition to its audience by the Independent Investigative Group IIG.In the episode titled "School House Haunting", which first aired on January 28, 2008, the "client" whose home the team investigated was Shannon Sylvia, a cast member of another paranormal show, Ghost Hunters International.On January 29, 2008, Ryan Buell posted an entry to his blog on the Official Penn State Paranormal Research Society website concerning his view of psychics and, in particular, the inclusion of psychic Chip Coffey on the show.Moreover, the show does draw a younger, predominantly female audience.So the big questions: Will Buell's admission affect the show's ratings positively or negatively? Will he become more or less relatable as a lead character on the docu-drama?
Is this just a stunt to help drive book sales and pick up media attention (which is clearly working)?
