The Season 3 premiere of E!'s hit show Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry airs tonight, and fans will get to watch Tyler Henry use his gift as a clairvoyant medium to deliver messages to celebrities from their loved ones who have died. But just like his fellow popular mediums like Long Island Medium star Theresa Caputo and John Edward, Tyler has had his fair share of naysayers doubting whether he really has psychic abilities and fans are wondering: Is the Hollywood Medium real?
It's hard to tell because judging by the reactions of the celebrities who have appeared on his show — like Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Kris Jenner, and a slew of stars from Bravo's Real Housewives franchise — it seems like the messages that Tyler has delivered have been accurate enough to seemingly prove that he can make a connection with spirits of the deceased. But there are some things that don't seem to add up.
It's hard to believe that Tyler doesn't know anything about the celebrities that he meets with. It's made very clear in the show that Tyler doesn't know which client he will read until he arrives and he has no prior knowledge about the star and viewers are constantly reminded that Tyler doesn't know anything about pop culture or celebs because he grew up in the small town of Hanford, CA. He told former R&B singer and Whitney Houston's ex-husband Bobby Brown and Real Housewives of New York star Carole Radziwill that he didn't know who they were but he had a bit of a fan moment with actress Megan Fox in the Season 3 trailer.
But despite some contradiction in the editing of the show, many people believe that the Hollywood Medium is real — especially after Tyler seemingly predicted the death of former TV star Alan Thicke. During a Season 2 episode, Tyler delivered a message to Alan and warned him about a heart and blood pressure issue in the men who have passed in his family and on December 13, 2016, Alan died from a ruptured aorta.
Be sure to catch the Season 3 premiere of Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry, airing Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on E!
