Channel 4's Hunted Is Look For New Series Contestants

Are you absolutely amazing at swerving sticky situations or avoiding that one annoying mate? Well, Channel 4 could have the thing for you as Hunted is looking for contestants for its next series.

With £100,000 up for grabs and an adventure to be had, this is the perfect time to put those dodging and avoiding skills to work.

Of course, it takes more than blanking your mates' messages and ignoring the knocks on the door, the show is pretty physical and takes quite a bit of tactic and thought.

Hunted is a reality show that follows the moves and decisions of members of the public who have signed up to go 'off the grid' for four weeks all while attempting to not leave any evidence behind that could lead anyone to them.

You'd think staying under the radar would feel pretty easy for people if they avoid social media and keep on the down low - however the contestants are, of course, being hunted.

Ex-police officers, CIA agents and members of the military will be using their specialised skills to attempt to follow and catch the contestants.

They'll use methods such as tracking CCTV footage, card transactions and the contestants social media use.

At this point the show sounds like something Liam Neeson's character in Taken could take on, but on the application website it states the Channel 4 bosses are now looking for 'ordinary men and women' to participate in the challenge.

The website states: "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?"

Along with this, Shine TV, who make the show, will cover 'reasonable pre-agreed loss of earnings for everyone who participates'.

To actually apply to be on the show is simple - all hopeful candidates who are up for a pretty out-there challenge must record a short video - less than three minutes - explaining why they want to take part in the show, then upload it to the application.

Anyone who's eager to give it a go must be over 18, with the right to live and work in the UK.

Candidates must be able to be away from home for up to six weeks and have their applications in by 11 February.
