Rob Robinson, who is going to appear in ABC’s “Wife Swap” on Friday, July 30, 2010, has submitted this statement for publication:
When I volunteered to be on the show, my attitude was that I was going to show America that monster hunters are not a bunch of crazy people with nothing better to do with their time.
I wanted to show how fun and exciting it is and how you learn alot about the outdoors and wildlife (which I try to teach my son). The reason I did the show was that I wanted to see what it felt like to be on TV as a Monster Hunter.
I love shows like “MonsterQuest” and “Destination Truth” and I wanted to find out what it was like.
My parents advised me in the beginning that I would be putting my family and my life out there for people to judge. I don’t regret being on the show. I had a great time doing it and my wife Tracy did too. I would do it again if I had the opportunity.
For the record, Tracy and I have six kids, three from each former marriage. My two oldest sons are grown and in the military. Because of legal stuff we could only have my son Josh on the show.
As far as Scott Marlowe goes, I have worked with him, but I have nothing to do with the murdered Bigfoot deal nor do I want to have anything to do with that fiasco. I enjoy monster hunting and I would do it 24/7, if I could.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
