Jack Osbourne on ‘Portals to Hell’ and Believing in Ghosts

For Jack Osbourne, the one rule on his Travel Channel collection, Portals to Hell, is that this: The creepier the higher! The 33-year-old joins researcher Katrina Weidman to examine haunted areas across the nation and this present is not like others of the identical vein.

“A lot of paranormal shows, they embellish things, they heighten things. A lot can be done in the edits. I was like, ‘We’re not doing that this time. If nothing happens, nothing happens,’” Osbourne says in the brand new situation of Us Weekly. “The network was really amazing about being OK with that. And some of the places we went to weren’t that crazy! Some of the places that we weren’t expecting to be that crazy were insane.”

So, does he imagine in spirits? Well, he has a concept.

“A thousand years ago, we used to tell stories. Humans would tell stories about dragons, giants and all sorts of ghosts and mystical creatures. But if you notice, we kind of have stopped telling stories about dragons and giants because they’ve never existed,” Osbourne says. “But for some reason, we keep telling stories about ghosts.”

That stated, when his kids – Pearl, 6, Andy, three, and Minnie, 14 months – ask about ghosts, he has a distinct reply!

“When they start asking me about ghosts, I tell them that ghosts aren’t real,” the Osbournes alum says. “I have a whole theory of what I think hauntings are. I tend not to tell them that ghosts are real because what they imagine ghosts are, I don’t actually believe it’s what ghosts really are.”

Portals to Hell airs on Travel Channel Fridays at 10 p.m. ET.
