UMaine Graduate to Appear on Spike TV Reality Show

Michael Merchant, a 2007 University of Maine graduate from Hampden, will appear on Spike TV’s new reality show “10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty.” Merchant, who holds a bachelor’s degree in biology, will compete against eight other teams of Bigfoot and big game hunters to try to capture Bigfoot or provide definitive visual and DNA proof of the creature’s existence. The show will be hosted by actor Dean Cain and will feature scientific experts Todd Disotell and Natalia Reagan. In 2011, Merchant also appeared on the Discovery Channel’s “Out of the Wild: Venezuela,” a reality show that featured volunteers who were abandoned in a remote area of Venezuela and had to travel 70 miles back to civilization with only basic supplies. “10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty” premieres 10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10 on Spike TV.
