Investigating paranormal occurrences has become a 24-7 gig for Ghost Adventures' Zak Bagans over the years. The 43-year-old often takes work home with him — literally — especially after purchasing a haunted house and experiencing spirits attaching themselves to him, according to his own accounts. And it seems focusing so much on his job hasn't left a whole lot of room for romance. While Zak Bagans does not have a wife and kids, we do have some insights into his romantic life.

Zak Bagans doesn't have a wife, but he was previously romantically linked to Holly Madison.

Recently, TMZ reported that Zak Bagans and Holly Madison broke up after two years of dating. While the pair met years before, they didn't become romantically involved until they reconnected in May 2019 when Holly came to visit Zak's Haunted Museum in Las Vegas. The two, who have been tight-lipped about their romance for the duration of their relationship, have kept their breakup equally quiet. According to sources, Holly and Zak broke up sometime in February 2021, but they are still cordial.

Prior to dating Zak, the 40-year-old former star of Girls Next Door was married to Pasquale Rotella until February 2019. They share two kids together who are fairly young, so it's possible Holly tries to keep her personal life as down-low as possible for their benefit.

Although Holly and Zak have decided to call it quits, the model left one clue that this may not be the end of the road for the couple. Her IG bio lists among her occupations "Future ghost," which feels like an obvious nod to Zak's line of work. 

Despite his recent breakup, at least Zak still has the other love of his life, his dog, Gracie.

Another past love of Zak's, Christine Dolce, tragically passed away in 2017.

Prior to linking up with Holly, not much is known about Zak's previous romances, though he was involved for some time with Christine Dolce, who was at one time known as the Queen of MySpace and was basically one of the first social media influencers. Sadly, Christine, who was also known as "Forbidden," struggled with substance abuse and died of liver failure in February 2017.

While their relationship had long since ended, Zak still expressed his sorrow over news of her passing, saying, "She will be missed... may she RIP."

It's safe to say Zak's first and biggest love is hunting ghosts. He has been connected to the paranormal since he was two years old, he told Las Vegas Magazine in 2017, and his earliest memories involve spirits and creatures talking to him. "It’s not just a career, it’s my life, my passion; it’s what I love to do," he said. "It’s fun going on investigations, and helping people — it’s an adventure."
