Destination America’s #1 series is back and on an Ultimate Quest for the Most Legendary of All Mountain Monsters: Bigfoot

— Season 3 of MOUNTAIN MONSTERS Premieres Saturday, March 7 at 10/9c Only On Destination America —

(Silver Spring, Md.) – For hundreds of years, Bigfoot has put Americans on edge with sightings of giant man-beasts lurking in the forest, discoveries of massive footprints in the mud, and reports of disembodied howls floating in the nighttime. Nowhere does the mystery of Bigfoot’s existence run deeper than in the backcountry of Appalachia where, over the last 10 years alone, the Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings (AIMS) has uncovered more than a dozen different clans of Bigfoot that call the mountain region home. Locals have their own names for these enormous ape-like creatures, from Midnight Whistlers to the Wildman, but they’re all Bigfoot in the end. Trapper and his team of expert hunters and outdoorsmen – including Jeff, Willy, Wild Bill, Huckleberry, and Buck – have spent their entire lives navigating Appalachia’s rough terrain, surviving off the land, and practicing do-it-yourself resourcefulness in preparation for their toughest challenge yet: defending mountain communities from Bigfoot, the most legendary monster ever rumored to exist. Now, in the third season of Destination America’s hit series MOUNTAIN MONSTERS, AIMS travels to remote corners of the Appalachian wilderness, putting a lifetime of training to the ultimate test, as they track and attempt to trap local Bigfoots across the region in a quest to prove they are fact, not folklore. MOUNTAIN MONSTERS: BIGFOOT EDITION premieres Saturday, March 7 at 10/9c on Destination America with eight episodes pursuing Bigfoots across the mountain region. The second half of the 16-episode season will premiere later in 2015.

“In the age-old battle between man and monster, the stakes have never been higher than in MOUNTAIN MONSTERS: BIGFOOT EDITION as AIMS and America’s most legendary monster, Bigfoot, go head to hairy head in an epic turf war over Appalachia,” said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. “AIMS has had run-ins before with Bigfoot like the Yahoo and the Grassman, their arch nemesis for two seasons running, but they are back this season stronger, braver, and more prepared than ever to track down Bigfoot and take back the mountains.”

In the season premiere of MOUNTAIN MONSTERS: BIGFOOT EDITION on March 7, AIMS begins its epic quest to prove the existence of Bigfoot in Appalachia. AIMS believes that central Kentucky’s clan of Midnight Whistlers – enormous ape-like monsters known for their ear-piercing whistle, green eyes, jet-black hair, and nocturnal behavior – were the first variation of Bigfoot to emerge from the Mammoth Cave system some 3,000 years ago. The AIMS team goes hot on the trail of one Midnight Whistler after discovering the most elaborate and massive nest they’ve seen to date and must construct a customized trap large enough to contain this 8-foot tall monster. Little does AIMS know that where there’s one Midnight Whistler, others are not far behind.

MOUNTAIN MONSTERS is produced by American Chainsaws with Colt Straub, Duke Straub, Royal Malloy, Russell Geyser and Jay Bluemke as executive producers. For Destination America, Caroline Perez is executive producer, Marc Etkind is general manager and Henry Schleiff is Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, American Heroes Channel, Discovery Life Channel, and Discovery Family Channel.

    I’ve done my share of crabbing and complaining about reality TV. Most of the shows are just nonsense and are built around ratings, not scientific investigation or actually trying to do anything other than to keep the viewers entertained.

    I have been disgusted with more than one show and I’m sure it will go on. I watched an episode of the Alaskan version of Mountain Monsters and it was boring–just more of the same and the characters weren’t even interesting.

    However (oh man, I hate it when a word comes back to haunt me like this one), for some reason I can’t explain, I like this damn show. NOT, because it’s good investigation. NOT because it furthers cryptozoology. NOT because I even believe they’re actually ever going to find anything, let alone capture it (I’m convinced everything is staged and just nonsense–did you see the Mothman episode???).

    I am ashamed to say I tune in just because it’s entertaining and for whatever reason, the characters amuse and draw me in (I know, shame on me).

    MY wife even started watching–at first picking on me and the characters, like Wild Bill. However (there I go again), there’s something about it, because she was just asking me the other night when it was going to start up again. I said I’d check and she looked at me and said, in her best Wild Bill voice: “Get ‘er done.”

    Is MM a sad excuse for a crypto show? Sure. Does it do anything to legitimize cryptozoology and the work done in crypto? Heck no. Should I be supporting such a show by watching it? Big old “No!”

    Can I stop watching it when it comes on? That, also, would also be a resounding “no.” Don’t ask me why, it just has some charm the other cockamamie shows don’t.

    Sigh. Alright, make fun of me and say your worst…

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
