I think Bob Garrett is basically "He Shall Not Be Named" nowadays.  


Once he got busted for ripping people off for tours that never took place, he was never mentioned again on the show.  I have to admit, the government kill teams/Mr Black days were entertaining.


Wes was in on the Garrett tales. He was part of every faked story with every guest he brought on the show.  Before all that, he made up his own BF story about how he and his brother pulled off on a logging road and found themselves surrounded by angry BFs. Then he had missing time, crawling on the ground for no reason. And he had the stones to tell and retell that story on other people's podcasts, like Chris Jericho's. Then, when his fake story is outed, he says, "well the show's not about me anyway."


Wes thought he was escaping the real world by making a living off of BF. Now he has to work hard to keep a weekly show fresh and his $7 a month believers engaged.

I did a recon of BF and cryptid influencers on Instagram. I'm sure I missed plenty of folks. I was just curious what a popularity snapshot looked like.
