Shortly after The Beatles sensational rise to global fame in 1963–1964 as the most famous quartet in pop culture, many individuals claimed they were almost members of the Beatles. The claims were so abundant that the press coined the term "Fifth Beatle".
As you know, currently the Fab Four of Bigfooting in pop culture are pictured above (left to right: Ranae Holland, James "Bobo" Fay, Matt Moneymaker, and Cliff Barackman.)
With the Animal Planet's 1.3 million viewership success of Finding Bigfoot there were bound to be Fifth Beatles claiming to be overlooked during the process of creating the show. This brings us to Tim Fasano.
Tim Fasano, A Tampa Bay taxi driver, claims he was approached by Animal Planet last November and decided he had too much integrity. He begins by claiming after several emails and phone calls, "It became obvious to me that were looking for sensationalism. And that they wanted someone to almost phony it up."
He continues with what broke deal for him, "They wanted me to guarantee they were going to find evidence if they came here. The truth of the matter is, unless I was a hoaxer, as many of you think I am, I can't guarantee you'll find anything"
As you will notice in his video he did not have enough integrity to stay far away from Tom Biscardi. Biscardi is either a serial hoaxer or a guy who has had the misfortune of being hoaxed several times.
We will let you decide for yourself if Tim Fasano truly had the right stuff to educate and entertain the masses. Would 1.3 million viewers tune it to see Tim?
