Ryan Bergara            

Co-Founder of Watcher Entertainment & Creator of BuzzFeed Unsolved; Host of "Ghost Files," "Puppet History" & "Are You Scared"

Ryan Bergara is a co-founder of Watcher Entertainment. Before founding Watcher, Bergara was a senior video producer at BuzzFeed. He is known for being the creator and former host of "BuzzFeed Unsolved." He has also worked as a director, cinematographer, writer, and editor. He created his own production company called Jamexi Productions. Bergara co-hosts the Watcher Entertainment series "Ghost Files."

He attended Chapman University, where he studied narrative television. From a young age, he was interested in filmmaking and honed his cinematography, directing, and editing skills. He then formed his own production company, Jamexi Productions.

As a student, Bergara had internships with Sony Pictures and Viacom. He started his career as a videographer and editor at Whalerock Industries. He joined Take One Productions as a camera operator, editor, and producer. After working at Take One Productions for six months, he joined BuzzFeed as a video intern. He was then a video fellow before reaching producer status.

"BuzzFeed Unsolved" followed Bergara and co-host Shane Madej as they discussed unsolved crimes, haunted places, alleged demonic possessions, and historical occurrences. While the discussion topics were often morbid, Bergara and Madej are known for their sense of humor. The show became a ratings hit for BuzzFeed, regularly featured as one of the network's most-watched shows.

After Bergara and his co-host Madej split from Buzzfeed, they rebranded their show into a new series under the production company Watcher as "Ghost Files." Bergara and Madej return to ghost hunting to attempt to recreate the internet's best paranormal evidence in the world's most haunted locations to prove the paranormal. Bergara also hosts "Puppet History" and "Are You Scared" at Watcher.
