We’ve seen 6 teams so far, 3 captures and yet to see 3 teams! Who will take the $250,000 prize and fugitive bragging rights. Will the hottie Hunters, Echo and Foxtrot continue their run of captures? And will old Griff finally bring Team Alpha their first catch? Let’s delve into episode 3…

TEAM 4: LEE AND HILMAR – Friends
Last seen… Freaking out that their contact network has gone down the toilet due to bloody US Post scanning all their mail. The ol’ Griff receives a voicemail via BUTT DIAL from Lee’s wife. Beth has such great timing. WHOOPS!
When you realise someone butt dials you…
Griff calls his mate Ry-Phi who gets right on the case. Griff calls Beth and she denies ever butt dialing him; in all fairness who has control of their butt if it wants to make a call?! He questions her on the slashing of tyres comment, and Beth has ‘no idea’ what he’s talking about. Good one, Beth!
Lee and Hilmar ring Beth on her burner phone, and she tells them that she accidentally butt dialled the Hunters. Long silent pause…
Now that is one frustrated Wolf! [Image credit: CBS]
VERDICT SO FAR…
I’m worried for these guys. My favourite wolf pack to walk the earth have got themselves in a pickle. Maybe using technology, whether cryptic or not, in any shape or form is NOT a good idea. They will need to cut all ties with Beth, family, friends and just do their own thing from now on. Also, can the Hunted producers please put what day each team are on more frequently, it’s hard to keep up where they’re all at! These guys are smart, so I really hope they pull something off to get the Hunters off their back, because we know Griff is hungry and wants wolves for dinner!!
TEAM 6: AARIF AND IMMAD – Friends
Last seen… At Jill’s farm receiving a call from no-social-media-Meadow telling them she’s been followed. Intel Payton has Meadow’s other networks and is laughing in the guys faces. The beardy friends call Meadow and she gives them a non-listed contact, Linda.
Intel send Hunters, Team Golf, down to the Jill’s farm, where Jill doesn’t do a very good job hiding what she knows. While this is happening, Aarif and Immad escape and travel to Linda’s place. Redneck Linda gives them a great plan to take their camper and kayak down the lake. Saving grace!!
Look at that mad fringe! [Image credit: CBS]
VERDICT SO FAR…
If the boys stick to Troy and Chele’s original plan to stay off the grid, away from technology, the boys should be fine. I hope they like camping! I think we see one of the boys shaving in the preview for next week, so a change of looks wouldn’t hurt… Just in case!
TEAM 7: MILES AND WILL – Friends
The good lookin’ frat boys are officiall ON THE RUN. Their plan is to dupe women along the way, probably what they do in their normal lives. (Kidding, guys!! Maybe.) Intel Charles DeBarber is on to the boys social media.
The boys approach some innocent girl on the street; poor Kristina. She finds a place for the guys to stay; her friend Meg’s place. WOW, so easy. Intel Charles initiates “Operation Cupid’s Revenge” putting out a WANTED poster on every dating app to thwart the boys plans to gain random girls’ attention.
Day 15 and the boys are at Myrtle Beach scabbing off peeps. They approach a chick on the beach, Liz, who ends up having a girlfriend Anna. Score. The boys staying with the lesbians is perfect! The girls wouldnt be using any of those dating apps Charles has infiltrated… right?! And then BAM, one of the girls sisters sees the Wanted Poster (single probably) and they decide whether they should call the number, because hello, money reward.
Miles and Will convince Anna to give them a ride out of town. Meanwhile Intel receive a tip call from a Mary Scott Valentine and she gives them their whereabouts at her sisters place. How dare you, Mary Scott Valentine! Miles and Will are then told the ‘other sister’ called the cops on them. Damn pissed.
Women… Can’t trust em! [Image credit: CBS]
Anna drives the boys away unknowingly being tracked by Intel via her phone GPS. You just can’t escape! Teams Hotel and Echo, are on the hunt for another capture. I can feel it coming! At the Command Centre, Johnny English tells the Hunters to check out the boats. Funnily enough, the boys end up finding a couple who allow them to stay on their boat for the night. The boys are goners. Echo’s Jono G sends the drones out to the boat and badass Alli is on her way…
It ends up in a foot race and Hotel ends Miles and Will’s fugitive life. Charles you legend. Operation Cupid complete.
I honestly thought these guys would make the 28 days.Even with Intel being ruthless on social media, the boys have a way with people and I thought they used this strength really well. This is also their downfall as they interact with A LOT of people, and you only need one dodgy person (here’s lookin’ at you Mary) to ruin it all. Also, the boys could’ve kept OUT of sight on that boat… Sigh. Major props goes to Charles for implementing his ingenious plan. What a success!
When you know you’re the shit.
TEAM 8: THU AND SENTRA – Friends
Asian sensations, Sentra and Thu are officially off and running! Sentra tells us she’s a gamer and loves to “slay bitches all day long”. QUOTE OF THE SEASON! She is planning to use burner phones along the way. Thu explains how they are camping chicks so hopefully they’re able to stay off the grid. The girls escape with Thu’s fiance and head to an ATM, grab supplies (eg. burner phone) and run away, fast. Myke (with a Y) is ALL over the burner phone deal. He’s about to explode with excitement!
The girls are on Day 5 in a friends car, Intel got nothin’ on them… yet! They call Rob, and plan to meet him at a coffee bar. On the way the girls plan to get gas and $$ from the ATM for more Ramen nights. I was legit worried about them having the cameras on the car while they were at the ATM, but little did I know they don’t even have front number plates in that state. Interesting! Luckily, the girls were smart enough to back their car away concealing their car number plate. A quick HEY Rob and he takes the girls back to his place.
Myke absolutely scores with this one and tracks the purchased burner phone back to a Walgreens, giving him a lead to Sentra and Thu’s whereabouts with Rob. Myke, I lyke your style. New Hunter Team Alert!! Team Delta are on the case. They arrive at Rob’s house and he seems on edge…
VERDICT SO FAR…
We saw the girls packing at Rob’s so we can’t really tell if they are still there or have already left. Here’s hoping they escaped out the back somewhere! I want these girls to do well and since they love camping and all would love to see them get out into the woods and see them Survivor-style. Good luck girls!
