Napes, Hunted! - the final stretch
The finale saw the remaining three fugitives trying to get to their extraction point to win a share of the $100,000 prize.
With Jacob Rob and Stathi still on the run each fugitive were on their own waiting to find the details of their extraction point. The catch, when they called to get the details, the Hunters would be notified of their location.
Jacob traversed to a car from a friend he recently met after he made the phone call. He then returned to a friends place who was on the Hunters radar and when the Hunters came knocking He ran then tried to hide, then ran again and was caught by the Hunters. His down fall was returning to a known contact and should have continued on the run as he had a few minutes head start.
Rob was dressed as a woman and used the burner phone he and Jacob had from the start, to find the location of the extraction. Cameras were all around and he was soon identified. Rob perhaps could have moved to a more crowded location where his disguise would have kept him “hidden in plain sight”. He moved to a location about 30 kms from the extraction point on the final night and a short trip, aiming to continue to avoid the Hunters.
Stathi, who With Matt displayed some great tactics early. He made the call and got a $220 cab fare to a location about 7km from the extraction site enlisting the help of some random strangers who provided accomodation and transport closer to the site. He waited, watching and left full speed to the evacuation point.
Stathi and Rob had both successfully evaded the Hunters for 21 days, made it safely to the extraction point and each winning a share of the $100k.
The hunters tried a last ditch effort and had our family
in stitches when they were heard yelling at the helicopter to stop on several occasions whilst running at full pace towards the chopper
Maybe they though the Helicopter would stop. 😂😂
Hunted, a reality TV series or social experiment was fun to watch, great to see the different tactics on display and in a way, alarming with the knowledge
of how our digital footprints can be used and are used to track and monitor each and everyone’s movements.
that’s the end folks hope you enjoyed the series and found the posts interesting.
