It’s been said there’s no such thing as bad publicity, but when the stars of your own show give it a thumbs-down, that might be the exception.
The National Geographic Channel premiered “Chasing UFOs,” an eight-episode reality TV show last month, focusing on a trio of investigators traversing America in search of the truth of unexplained UFO reports, alleged alien abductions and reported military cover-ups.
On the heels of less-than-positive reviews and viewer comments, two of the show’s stars — James Fox and Ben McGee — revealed their own dissatisfaction with “Chasing UFOs,” complaining that the show had placed more emphasis on entertainment value than a serious look at the UFO subject.

Ever since the UFO phenomenon began back in the 1950s, there has been a huge amount of reported sightings of UFOs, along with photos and videos of these so called UFOs, and even contact with aliens.
As it turns out, many of these sighting, and photos and videos, are actually mis-identified natural phenomenon, or mis-identified man made objects. Of course, it also turns out that some of these UFO sighting, and photos and videos, are not as simple something that has been mis-identified, but are actually man made hoaxes, many of which are still believed by some people to be real.
Here are what I consider to be the top five most famous UFO/ET hoaxes that some people still believe are real: The Soap Box: 5 Famous UFO/ET Hoaxes that some people still think are real.

«For most people, looking for UFOs is more of a hobby than an actual occupation. Not so for Erin Ryder, James Fox and Ben McGee, members of a dynamic team starring in the new television series, “Chasing UFOs,” that premieres Friday on the National Geographic Channel.

A new survey finds that 80 million Americans, or 36 percent of the population, believe UFOs are real. One in 10 respondents say they have personally witnessed an alien spaceship. And if aliens were to invade the country sometime in the next four years, 65 percent of survey respondents said President Obama would be better suited for handling the invasion than Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
