When SyFy presented Kristen Luman as a paranormal investigator ready to uncover the hidden secrets of the haunted Crescent Mine in its new paranormal reality show “Ghost Mine”, it neglected to reveal her experience as a hypnotherapist, model and actress. An anonymous email tip from a reader on February 13 alerted me that there was more to Kristen Luman than SyFy had revealed.
So here’s the scoop. Kristen Luman’s profile on Model Mayhem may have suddenly disappeared once she took on the role as a paranormal investigator in the reality series “Ghost Mine”, but her information didn’t. A screen shot from April 15, 2011 confirms that she joined the site on Feb. 10, 2010.
According to her profile on Model Mayhem, Kristen moved to Hollywood “about 2 years ago”. She has been modeling since she was little, hosted “OurCountry” for about a year and has since played in a number of films and commercials and held other hosting positions.
IMDb confirms that Kristen Luman played in three movies: “Spiral”, “Harvest of Fear” and “Drama Queens”. In fact, Kristen can be seen in the trailer for “Harvest of Fear”.
A photo of Kristen Luman listing her as a model at the “Girls Gone Wild” Magazine launch, dated April 22, 2008 further confirms her status as a model. A similar photo can be found on LazyGirls.
But that’s not all. According to the American Hypnosis Association Luman earned a diploma of hypnotherapy from the Hypnosis Motivation Institute on Dec. 12, 2012 and is a certified specialist in pain management, healing and weight loss. She has been a member of the American Hypnosis Association since 2013 and currently sells downloads of presentations on happiness, relaxation and motivation for $25 each, along with a special Skype session for $50. These are available from her site.
Kristen may be a paranormal investigator, although a search for groups she has been associated with comes up blank, but she also has years of experience in front of the camera and training in hypnotherapy. Both cast some doubt on the authenticity of her role as a paranormal investigator in “Ghost Mine”.
