'Hunted' Is Looking For Participants To Go On The Run

'Hunted' Is Looking For Participants To Go On The Run

Ever fancied yourself a master at avoiding people? Perhaps you were a champion at hide-and-seek when you were a kid and always thought you could make a career out of it?

Well Hunted are looking for participants for the 2020 series, and they want you to apply.

The Channel 4 show, in which ordinary people go on the run attempting to evade former and serving police, intelligence personnel, and on-foot teams, is seeking people to take part - and the winner will get £100,000.

If chosen, you become a fugitive, and it's your task to evade capture for a whole 28 days in order to receive the prize money. Sounds like a piece of cake, eh?

"We're looking for ordinary people to go on the run and try to disappear in one of the most watched nations on Earth," say the TV show.

"If you had to disappear tomorrow, for whatever reason - with some of the world's best investigators looking for you, and some of the most cutting edge technology tracking you, could you just vanish?"

The challenge begins when the contestants are taken to a public area where they give up their phones and are given a rucksack with some essentials in it and a debit card with a small amount of money. They are then given a head start.

Shortly after, former police and intelligence official - known as the Hunters - are given their names and begin their search to track them down.

While on the run, fugitives are able to use any existing connections they have, be it friends or family, or ask members of the public for help.

Hunted gives participants the option to go on the run in pairs or solo, with winning pairs splitting the cash.

The only rules are that you need to be 18 or over to apply and you'll have to be able to wangle around six weeks off work. Think you're up to it?

Applications require shooting a short video introducing yourself and explaining why you'd like to go on the run, and they close on 23rd February - so don't sleep on this one.

You can apply to be on the next series of Hunted here.
