Andrew Bustamante On History Channel’s Beyond Skinwalker Ranch
Skinwalker Ranch in Gusher, Utah, has been home to paranormal activity for decades. In fact, it’s been over two centuries since locals have reported a plethora of supernatural occurrences such as UFO sightings to even cattle mutilations. Now, there are reports of “similar” unusual activity hundreds of miles from the original site. Thus, The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch’s spinoff Beyond Skinwalker Ranch is born.
As the title suggests, Beyond Skinwalker Ranch follows investigators beyond the borders of the ranch as they travel across the US to examine strange and unexplained activity in other spooky locations.
“So, for the first time ever they have decided to expand their search for answers. In an effort to gain a broader perspective and build larger data sets, the Skinwalker team is adding two team members and taking the offensive by pursuing evidence of similar phenomena found at analogous sites around the country,” The History Channel summarized.
As mentioned, the “two team members,” are Andrew Bustamante and Paul Beban.
The premiere ep of the show featured an investigation at the Bradshaw Ranch in Sedona, Arizona, as the team encountered “dangerous radiation levels, a strange temperature anomaly, and a UAP (unidentified anomalous phenomena).”
According to Andrew, they had found a “similar” activity that got more “intense”.

Is Andrew Bustamante Married?
Yes, Andrew Bustamante is married to his wife Jihi J Bustamante as of 2023.
His wife, Jihi was born on July 30, 1980. She went to the University of South Florida for her BA, and Florida State University for her Masters of Social Work. In 2005, she then finally got her JD from Florida State University College of Law.
After receiving her degrees, Jihi joined the United States Government as an intelligence officer in 2007. It was also where she met Andrew. So, after 7 long years of service, the duo together quit their job in 2014. Then, she worked at CVS Health like Andrew and finally started EverydaySpy with him.
According to Andrew, it was he who talked his wife into leaving the CIA. “The two of us decided that we would rather choose to raise a family together at the same time in safety rather than try to raise a family in the weird crazy world of CIA action,” he said.
Now, the lovebirds share two kids — a boy and a girl, and over a decade of married life. (They welcomed their baby girl on Feb 15, 2013).
Even when Andrew is at his job, thousands of miles away, he is “never lonely” for he knows he’s loved by his wife and kids. He said that his secret to a happy married life was taking a break when things get rough. Date nights, Vacations, and showing love always helped as well.
“We haven’t been on a life-threatening mission together in a long time, but massive business growth and a pending international family trip have put us under more stress than normal. So we chose to take a timeout together tonight to deconstruct tension by constructing a few simple plastic blocks,” he wrote in Nov 2021.
