A Renaissance Man

You may know Barry Fitzgerald as the Team Leader of Syfy's Ghost Hunters International, but the Sexiest Man of the Year is also an author, a meta-physicist, a pet lover, (with the exception of spiders), a loving Uncle, and a renowned photographer. Known by his friends and followers as Baz, this talented man has driven drones of women to Syfy's Ghost Hunter's conglomerate Tuesday nights at 9:00 p.m.

Whether it is his rugged good looks, his aphrodisiacal Irish accent, his gentle demeanor, the fact he is a real life hero, the way he quietly commands a scene, his refreshing humbleness, or his lone wolf quality; Barry Fitzgerald has risen to the top of the Ghost Hunter's pack as a respected leader of paranormal science and as an international sex symbol.

In a recent interview with this celebrity, I had the honor and privilege of getting a peak into the many layers of this multifaceted man. I approached the interview with great expectations after following Barry for years on Ghost Hunters International, however Barry's knowledge, generosity, approachability, and modesty were far beyond my expectations.

Some Interesting Facts about the Sexiest Man of the Year:

  • Barry Fitzgerald experienced paranormal activity as a small child which fueled his interest in the paranormal.
  • His travels for photography and Ghost Hunters have taken him to more than 60 countries. He considers his favorite countries as Puerto Rico, Belize, New Zealand, South Africa, and Peru.
  • Barry Fitzgerald recently photographed a U.F.O. in Peru.
  • He likes to utilize photography to show people how he sees the world.
  • The Sexiest Man of the Year is driven to solve paranormal phenomenon to help ease the suffering of others as his own life was affected by these phenomenons and their dark influences.
  • Barry Fitzgerald believes in both dark and light entities and has learned to utilize spectrum photography to see them.
  • Barry's first love is photography because it is just "him and a camera". He says he goes off on his own, sometimes getting into trouble, but he relishes this time. He prefers to be away from cellphones.
  • Barry's photography will soon be available to purchase from www.charmstealer.com. He recently had a light spectrum photo shoot in the Ukraine and it sold out.
  • The Sexiest Man of the Year recently adopted a puppy named Max. He is a large breed cross between a Danish Shepherd and a Japanese Akita. Max will accompany the Ghost Hunters International on investigations.
  • Barry Fitzgerald currently lives in a haunted house in Ireland. During our Skype interview, his television turned on by itself. He has made a deal with the entities to leave him alone and the house guests are "fair game."
  • Barry Fitzgerald has done an extensive investigation on animal sensitivity to paranormal activity. He has discovered that horses, ferrets, and golden labs are the most sensitive to paranormal activity. Chocolate Labs were found to be "useless" in detecting activity.
  • The Sexiest Man of the Year loves walking, nature, history, Wold War II History, researching his ancestry and his Irish heritage, and catching up with his friends when he can.
  • For music, Mr. Fitzgerald prefers European Trance Music, Opera, Blue Grass, some Irish Folk Music and Classical Music. He dislikes loud heavy metal music.
  • GHI returns in February!!
  • This week, Barry is releasing a new book entitled, "So My House is Haunted, Now What" with Dustin Pari. Look for it on Amazon and your favorite retailer.
  • The Sexiest Man of the Year is currently working on a book entitled "In the Midst of Gods" in which he travels to some of the most dangerous places in the world for paranormal activity.

      Thanks Real Housewife.. I am sure there are many husbands out there who are not pleased. Ghost Hunter's International is a very SCARY show. I think because it is shot in old European (and different locations) so much more compelling frightening evidence is found. The United States is so much "younger" and there isn't the array of evidence available. I highly recommend it. Thanks for reading!

      ...whoops Colin made a boo boo - lol - I thought you were talkin' about Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees - and even my 'falsetto' in me was getting excited but it's about another Barry I see - lol - personally my vote would have gone for the LORD DE CROSS himself or Ken aka Saddlerider who is just so dishy in everyway (my god Tammy look closely and you will see in Ken a cross between Kenny Rogers before he got that silly makeover and Sean Connery 007 ) .....and that epi-man is sexy when he has the cat in the picture with him - smart thinking on his part - lol - because most women love animals - sometimes even the two legged variety - lol - and homework assignment for you dear Tammy - go to Google and type COAST TO COAST AM radio with host George Norrie - it's a talk radio show which is very famous and they often talk about all things paranormal and other mysteries .....

      lake erie time ontario canada 2:09pm thank you for coming into my life and my most awesome tribute and warm wishes for your new year and continued health and happiness for 2012.

      Uh, Tammy, will you do a profile on me? I'll pay you if you keep quiet about it. Joking of course; what a great one on Barry though, he's a multi-talented and most interesting fellow. And yes, I can see why Mr. Fitzgerald has risen to the top of the pack on Ghost Hunters and has legions of female- and male no doubt- fans. Btw Tam, cats and cows have very strong reactions to close by UFOs too- the cats particularly bizarrely.:)

      Tammy 5 years ago from North Carolina

      Hi Alastar,

      Sure I will do one on you! No payment required. Give me a few days to draw it out. :)

      Cats have some bizarre senses. I had the sweetest old cat who went insane every time I played with the ouija board. I had to stop because he was hurting himself trying to get out of a glass door. Interesting comment. That would be great hub material in itself.

      Thanks for the read my friend!

      Alastar Packer 5 years ago from North Carolina

      We got a deal then! How very intriguing on the cat and glass door. Bet we're kinda thinking the same thing on that one. Also kinda funny that just several days ago i let an outdoor Tomcat in because of heavy rain. He settled on a mat looking out and was fine but a few minutes later he was repeatedly hurling himself at the glass door. As far as great hub material goes its already been written about.

      I love watching cats. They are so interesting. I have had many in my life. I don't have any pets right now but I feed four strays. They are getting to the point where they are fighting with each other. I think we can learn a lot from them. They react to people differently as individuals. Some very great thoughts!

      I love watching GHI and GH : ) Barry does have a beautiful accent. My husband and I have wondered for some time if there is something going on between him and Kris. We think that's why she moved from GH to GHI. Thanks for the eye candy pictures : )

      Thanks for sharing this information on Barry Fitzgerald....I have to admit I had never heard of him or his show before reading your hub.
