Just for fun I decided to go on SyFy's forums to see if any of these people believed anything that FoF was doing. While there I found out that there is a rumor going around that Chi Lan Lieu has quit the show. Last tweet that some of the "fans" got from the "investigators" told them that they could keep up with them via various tweets. All names of the "investigators" was mentioned except for Chi Lan Lieu.

That's because Chi Lan Lieu and I are getting married.  After the wedding, we shall be back-packing through the Pacific NW for the next two years in search of Bigfoot.  We are registered at Monsters-R-Us.  I personally scanned a cat/boar hybrid, a lake monster for a man-made lake, a few orb spiders, and a very crappy recorder for EVP's.  Oh, and a nice panini press.  Who knew Monsters-R-Us carried panini presses?

Ummm, more investigation was needed, that's why a skeptic examines the facts for himself.

Check out the "follow" links…Bill Murphy (not Chi Lan) is the one not in the list. Sorry Rev!

Bill Murphy is their "lead scientist" too.  Damn, big loss.  Well, they could replace him with another well-known and respected scientist and investigator named Bill……Bill Birnes!  That would also maintain male pattern balding quotient.

Well, and the omission doesn't mean at all that ANYONE is leaving. Remember it took a while to get Kris Tweepin' too. Bill may just have better things to do. If he WERE leaving, it's odd that he'd be out touting the new season 1.5 as recently as three weeks ago at the Ghost Fest Expo.

What I was hearing was that her name last month was not on the tweeter section of their page. So some fans went snooping and found that she had already participated in the upcoming 6 episodes that starts this November. She used to have a segment on TechTV and some are saying that her small review segment might grow into her being a full time tech reviewer on the station which has many claiming that this is her last season and she will be full time on TechTV. The tweets must have changed because last month her name was absent and Bill's was there and now her name is back and Bill's is abscent.

No, Bill has never been on Twitter since he doesn't have a "Twitter." And Chi Lan has had hers since the latter part of August (and it WAS on the twitter section on SciFi a month or so ago).

Listen to Bill's explanation about his Twitter situation here:

Listen to him also give his view on the Ghost Writing incident in this same clip.

The moderators over the FoF section of SyFy's website has me all confused. First I read the report that Chi Lan had quit, so I asked 2 of the moderators through PM. Both said that they had heard that she did because of the TechTV tidbit I was telling you about. Then they go on to tell me the story about how everyone had a Twitter account except for her until this month in which now Bill does not have one. Now I find out that Bill has never had one. So I'm just saying forget with the guys at SyFy because it's way to much misinformation.

Wow, that guy still buys it.  I'm guessing that he doesn't go to any skeptical websites or read any skeptical books/magazines dealing with the paranormal.  I find this odd behavior for FoF's "Lead Scientist" to not seek out any alternate explanations for his cases.

Come to think of it…SV and the skeptical community as a whole is kind of like Consumer Reports for the paranormal.  I would think that if one is truly interested in finding the truth or discovering something new or proving something to be fact…one would seek out as many different opinions and perspectives as possible.

I can't stress this enough to FoF's Lead Scientist but…just because YOU can't figure something out…it doesn't mean that there isn't an answer…

Well, Chi-Lan hasn't jumped the FoF-ship yet (that we know of) but she IS moving up in the TV world.  Currently on the Travel Channel is an hour-long program called RV 2010 hosted by none other than our photography expert herself.  So far she's found 6 haunted Winnebagos, two possessed AirStreams, and a pop-up tent with high EMF.

And that was all before the first commercial.

I think that is a rerun…or at least it is the second such show she's hosted. 

I hope she isn't spreading her analytical gifts too thin…..Wink

This was the 2010 edition so yes, it was a rerun, she's done 4 of them starting in 2008 (and then 2009, 2010, and 2011)

Will have to see if I can dig up the old episodes but I thought in the exciting introduction where they show a clip of each person doing something wow-like and then flash their name and title on the screen that Chi-Lan was billed as a "Photography Expert"  Did anyone notice that, in these last shows, her title is simply "Photographer"?

I don't believe she ever actually existed on the show.  She appears to move biologically, but I wouldn't be surprised if she was CG or simply superimposed into the show with cheap camera tricks.Laugh

I suggest clicking on a link or two on her site, then:

She's considered a "host" for FoF lol
