15 Things We Didn't Know About Giorgio Tsoukalos From Ancient Aliens

You can’t scroll through Facebook without coming across the familiar face of Giorgio Tsoukalos from the show Ancient Aliens. With those outstretched arms, squinty eyes, and that trademark crazy hair (which seems to get wilder every season) he’s the subject of a thousand internet memes, usually sporting an Aliens caption. He’s undoubtedly the star of the show, and thanks to his popularity and internet fame, almost everyone knows who he is, even if they’ve never seen the show.

History Channel’s Ancient Aliens is a documentary-style TV series that showcases theories about Ancient Aliens on Earth, which is the idea that intelligent extra-terrestrial beings visited Earth and made contact with humans in prehistoric times. According to this theory, almost all deities were actually aliens and aliens are responsible for our current culture and technology. It’s an intriguing idea, but it’s not taken seriously by the academic world. The show has been slammed by critics for presenting pseudoscience and pseudohistory as fact, but there’s no denying that people are fascinated by the ideas discussed in Ancient Aliens. If people weren’t interested, the show definitely would not currently be enjoying its 12th season.
