The latest episode of The Osbournes Want To Believe is sure to be a jaw-dropper.

In a new teaser for the upcoming December 19 episode, Jack details an apparent alien encounter. A pilot allegedly witnessed a UFO aircraft under his plane. The episode is fittingly titled “Ghosted By Aliens.”

The official episode description reads: “The Osbournes get the scoop on an extraterrestrial hookup through a dating app; Jack pushes his parents to become believers in ghost pets, desert mermaids, interdimensional green children and ultrafast UFOs.”

The series follows Jack Osbourne and his mission to make his parents believers of the paranormal and extraterrestrial. The show examines footage and proof of its existence, but can Jack convince Ozzy and Sharon?

The Osbournes Want To Believe airs on The Travel Channel at 9 PM CT.

The Osbournes on Believing in Aliens?

The concept of the show came about during the thick of the pandemic. Ozzy said that it gave them something to do.

“So Jack came up with the idea, and I said to him, ‘I don’t believe in this shit.’ So he said, “Trust me. I’ll have you believing.” And it’s true. Some of it is very compelling,” Ozzy told Rolling Stone.

Jack grew up being obsessed with UFOs and his hobby has now turned into a career.

Sharon on the other hand, is somewhat a believer. I am and I’m not. It’s like, until I see it myself, I’m not going to start shouting, ‘I’m a believer.’ Because there are so many things on film where they can use trickery, or different effects,” she explained. Ironically, when Jack began his series Portals to Hell, she was “really disturbed” that he was doing the show. This series is much more family-friendly and covers various unexplained instances.

Jack noted that he is developing a keen eye on spotting deep fakes, videos that are edited to create the illusion of something paranormal.

Ozzy’s Take

Ozzy was at first a non-believer. He’s now somewhat changed his stance. I’m leaning more and more towards it,” he admitted. “If we think that we’re the only things to be living in this universe, we can’t possibly be.”

On the other hand, Ozzy has always been superstitious, but he hasn’t passed those down to his kids.

He would often share his superstitions,” Jack said but noted that he wouldn’t ask the kids to partake. “Like, he’ll never own a green car, which is a weird World War II superstition. He’s got this whole thing about green cars. When you ask him why, his excuse often changes, like, “Ah, they’re just not reliable.” What? That’s, like, an old man’s thing to say.”
