A new season of Expedition X arrived on the Discovery Channel on 2 August 2023. Trio paranormal experts Phil Torres, Josh Gates, and Jessica Chobot also returned with the show and kicked it off with a super-creepy episode with the title “Ghosts of Eloise Asylum”. In a decaying mental hospital in Detroit, Josh Gates, along with his paranormal researcher colleagues Phil and Jessica, were shown investigating reported hauntings.
In this writing, we shall tell you if two of these supernatural connoisseurs, i.e., Jessica Chobot and Phil Torres are related. Some fans have been wondering if they are married. So, here’s what we know.
Are Jessica Chobot And Phil Torres Married?
New York City-based Phil Torres is a biologist, science communicator, photographer, and television host on Expedition X and projects from around the world.
As for Jessica, she is a writer and on-camera host. She was also previously a presenter for IGN Daily Fix, IGN Strategize, and Weekly Wood programs.
So, together, these two were back in the office again working on a new season of Expedition X. “These two troublemakers coming to a city near you (possibly),” Jessica most recently teased on social media sharing a picture of them together.
Now, comes the question, if they are married? Sorry to disappoint some of you, but they are not. These two are just work buddies and are married to other people.
Phil Torres has been married to Silja Danielsen since 23 September 2018, and they also have a kid together. It’s their daughter Atlis Bjear Torres who came to them one fine day on 20 March 2022. When that happened, Phil had taken to his social media to announce they now have a baby girl. After telling everyone she was born on the night of the Spring Equinoxour he also gushed that both his and Silja’s “hearts have grown.”
Silja is the developer and founder of Silja From Scratch, an eating well and staying healthy food blog. After that, she is a partner at GLOSS MODERNE, a fragrance, body care, and haircare brand. And not least, she also is a full-time model represented by WILHELMINA MODELS LONDON, TWO Management Women, and Marilyn Agency NY.
Jessica, on the other hand, is married to Blair Herter. Just on 19 February 2023, Jessica, on social media, thanked Blair “for the 11+ years of loving adventures & family.” They too have one child together, a son. And often Jessica can be seen inflating he husband for being an “outstanding example and inspiration” for their little one.
By IMDB, Jessica’s husband is described as a producer and actor, for Fast Travel (2018), Hero Makeover (2017), and The IGN Show (2017). And while on LinkedIn, he introduces himself as a husband, father, dreamer, big fan of helping others, and a one-time “Emmy Loser”.
Based on all this, it seems rumors of Jessica cheating on her husband were mostly likely just false gossip. Also, there’s been words that Jessica was previously married to James C Chobot.
