America's Psychic Challenge

Sky LIVINGit at 9:00pm (Other show times...)

America‘s Psychic Challenge

Exclusive to LIVING2, this week is the conclusion of the US reality show America's Psychic Challenge. In this unique contest, 16 clairvoyants have battled it out to claim the title of America's number one psychic. In this week's spectacular series finale, finalists Jackie Barrett and Michelle Whitedove (pictured, right) compete in a series of carefully-designed challenges in order to prove who is America's premier medium, and worthy of walking away with the $100,000 prize.

Jackie is a psychic medium who has been using her gift for 23 years. She has assisted the police in cases across the country, and is a member of the voodoo church in her hometown, where she is known as a healer. Michelle is a clairvoyant and medical intuitive - meaning she can sense information about the human body - and has the ability to channel spirits. She has also helped the police, and boasts a 98 per cent accuracy rate. During the contest, Jackie has displayed a stunning aptitude for crime scene investigation, while Michelle has been the top scorer in every round she has competed in.

This week's series finale includes some of the toughest and most demanding challenges of the whole series. In their first test, the psychics are asked to find a stuntman who has been buried alive somewhere within a ten acre area. Michelle stuns onlookers when she picks the exact location of the buried man, while Jackie gets within 50 yards of him in just nine minutes.

Next, the pair carry out a reading for a hardened sceptic, before their final test is revealed. The mediums are challenged to work on a real homicide case which has gone cold, in the hope that they will uncover vital clues in the seven-year-old investigation. The show's stunning conclusion promises to amaze even the most sceptical viewers.
