Ancient Aliens star Giorgio Tsoukalos was mercilessly mocked by fans for charging astronomical prices for a speedy four-minute virtual meet and greet this weekend.
The host and co-executive producer of the wildly popular show on the History Channel promoted the pricey online event pegged to AlienCon on his Facebook.
“Until live conferences are back in full swing” the 43-year-old host posted, you can have “a private, four-minute conversation… virtually” this Saturday.
Tickets start at $150 for just the brief conversation, and $195 if you want an autograph photo to commemorate the moment.
One fan hilariously posted in comments “Thats almost as crazy as your awesome hair. Mighty expensive for 4 minutes….”
Another alien enthusiast was less lighthearted about the pricing: “Hi Giorgio, are you serious for real? So you're going to charge your fans $150.00 dollars to speak with you. I think you're letting your ego trip you up here…. You should rethink this.”
However, the reaction wasn’t all negative, as some fans were eager for the opportunity to hear from Giorgio one-on-one.
One person wrote: “I can't wait!!! It is great you share time with us.”
While another decided it was time to flirt, writing: “I'd love to but I think it would end with me proposing to you.”
The alien chaser is married to jewelry designer, Krix Beeble.
Giorgio’s co-star, David Childress, is hosting the same virtual events, for the same fees.
