Jack Osbourne is back on reality television with Syfy’s “Haunted Highway,” which sees the new dad and his pal, Dana Workman, checking out rumored paranormal sites in the U.S.
“I’d always been interested in the kind of paranormal and the unknown… and Syfy kind of approached me with an idea and it was pretty simple, ‘We want to give you and a friend a camera and just send you off into these weird and wacky locations and see if you guys come up with anything,’” Jack told Access Hollywood on Monday of the pitch from the network. “I was like, ‘OK.’”
While Dana gets the heebie jeebies at the slightest bit of wind, Jack said you won’t see him ducking for cover on the show very easily.
“It takes a lot to get me scared,” he said.
“We got some stuff that I can’t explain,” Jack added of their findings, which will be revealed over the course of the six-episode show. “I don’t know how to put it. It’s just weird.”
The reality star was in good spirits as he spoke about his Syfy show, and he told Access, he is doing well with his multiple sclerosis, a condition he recently discovered he has.
“I’m alright. I think when you get news like, ‘You have MS,’ it’s a bit of a buzz kill, but when you do a bit of research into it, you realize it’s quite manageable as long as you take care of yourself,” he said. “Having a new baby is forcing me to just focus on that and work, so it takes the sting away a little bit.”
Jack was doing just that on Sunday, enjoying watching his newborn daughter, Pearl, reach a new milestone.
“She rolled over for the first time yesterday, so we’re pretty excited about that,” he said, with a grin. “So she’s advanced. We read online most kids don’t do it until 14 weeks, she did it at 10-and-a-half weeks… Expect big things from Pearl Osbourne.”
