Tyler Henry, the face of the E! Network Show Hollywood Medium, claims to have a special gift with which he can communicate with those who have died. However, it is common knowledge that reality TV programs are often edited, scripted and more so that they do not become real “reality.” But what about Henry’s gift? Is it real?
Henry’s television debut was actually on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’
Henry first appeared in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians in 2015, the year before his show premiered. Then, in 2016, Hollywood Medium came to E! network, and it immediately attracted millions of viewers. At the show, Henry meets prominent celebrities and claims that people from their past penetrate him and allow him to communicate with the dead. He reads celebrities such as Kris Jenner, Margaret Cho and Lil John.
Several people have publicly challenged Henry’s psychic abilities
While those at Henry’s show believe in what he can do, others have publicly challenged the idea that everyone on earth can talk to dead people. Some have said that Henry uses celebrities to get ahead and exploits those who mourn a big loss. People claim that Henry is deceptive in his capabilities and uses “hot and cold” reading techniques to figure out storylines for the people he reads. Cold reading means that, without knowing anyone, people can fake information based on what a person looks like, their age, and their body language. Hot reading means that the person doing the reading has already learned information about his client without the client’s knowledge.
People suspect that Henry has the ability to commit scams instead of the ability to talk to dead people. Those who are practiced in cold readings can make it fake until they make it – it seems like they really know something about someone because of an unimaginable ability, but it is actually based on external factors.
Henry warned actor Alan Thicke of his death back in 2016
After actor Alan Thicke died tragically of heart problems at the end of 2016, Henry’s supporters immediately realized that Henry had predicted Thicke’s death only seven months earlier. At the show, Henry Thicke said that heart problems would occur and claimed that Thicke’s deceased relatives told him not to be stubborn about caring for his heart. Seven months later, Thicke died. People immediately believed that Henry predicted the actor’s death, but others challenged it. Some said that a family history with heart problems would mean that everyone in the family is at risk, and if someone points to it, someone does not become paranormal.
Although the events portrayed on his show are true, it’s nearly impossible to know if his gift is real
Although Henry really sits with customers, gains their confidence and does his best to inform them about information from those on the other, it is almost impossible to tell definitively if the measurements are true. Although the celebrities are almost always convinced, there will always be critics who claim to have an explanation for every movement that Henry makes. Whether or not the public believes in psychics is mostly up to the individual; it’s the same as believing in ghosts. The events that take place at the show are true, but it is unclear whether Henry’s real abilities are.
