As the host of Syfy channel's Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files, investigator Ben Hansen explores paranormal phenomena. Traveling around with camera crews and other scientists and researchers, Hansen explained or debunked mysterious events or unusual sightings.

With a paranormal twist on MythBusters, Hansen joins a team of researchers and scientists who travel around studying claims of hauntings, UFO sightings, and government conspiracy theories. Whether or not the claims have a clear explanation on the show, Hansen doesn't discount all conspiracy theories.

"[People] wonder if I've ever seen or experienced things that make me question my faith. I tell them, 'absolutely not,'" Hansen said in an interview with LDS Living. "Yes, while it's true that I've seen many things most people would find hard to believe, there's nothing I've experienced that makes me doubt the gospel. It all fits in somehow . . . the universe is filled with mysteries, and I'm okay waiting a bit for the answers."
