Unfortunately, I Wasn't Consulted
Star-Telegram | 02/16/2007 | TV show planned on hunt for Texas Bigfoot: "It was probably only a matter of time before someone came up with a Bigfoot reality-TV show.
And that time has apparently come.
Next month in the woods outside Paris, a pilot will be filmed for the proposed series Capturing Bigfoot.
'You've got a hot spot out there in your back yard, a hot spot like no other,' Bigfoot explorer Tom Biscardi, 58, said by telephone from Northern California.
Biscardi, who retired from the insurance industry to pursue Bigfoot full time, has made the creature his life's work. On his Web site he sells Bigfoot DVDs, Bigfoot mugs, Bigfoot T-shirts and pewter Bigfoot belt buckles. He also hosts a weekly Internet radio show about all things Sasquatch.
He believes a Bigfoot family is living in old World War II Army bunkers buried on an abandoned portion of Camp Maxey north of Paris, near the Oklahoma border.
'I think it's a family pod,' Biscardi said. 'What we found is baby footprints next to a mother. This is the first time that has ever happened.'
Not only is Biscardi participating in the TV pilot, but he is also inviting enthusiasts to go along.
For $375, anyone interested in finding 'America's King Kong' can join him on a 24-hour expedition as part of the team trying to capture the elusive beast."
