Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki have been mesmerizing "Supernatural" fans since the show first debuted back in 2005. Audiences proudly joined Dean and Sam Winchester on their perilous adventures, "saving people, hunting things," and haven't slowed down since Episode 1.
But, without the innovative mind of Eric Kripke, the world would've never met the beloved Winchester brothers. Kripke is the creator of "SPN" and has now finally joined the Twittersphere. His first tweet was on Nov. 5, and since then he's shared various trivia about the beloved CW show.
We rounded up several fun facts he's shared thus far, and like Leviathans, we're hungry for more.
