First look of season 3 aired tonight during MasterChef Australia. It appeared to show teams breaking into a fake office looking for cash.

Is it going to end up sacrificed against the Olympics or will 10 hold it back until after, especially with Q3&4 missing a couple of formats from last year like The Traitors and Masked Singer?

I thought 10 were running Dessert Masters during the Olympics.

Hunted normally only goes for something like 3 weeks so they may squeeze it in before the Olympics.

That would probably be better counter programming and launching it off the back of Masterchef gives it a better platform than later in the year.

Hunted’s Mind-Blowing Twist.

Hunted: The Million Dollar Heist. After The Olympics On 10 And 10 Play.

Australia’s real-life extreme game of hide and seek, Hunted returns with a mind-blowing twist, full of heart-pounding excitement and breathtaking suspense that’ll keep you on the edge of your seats.

Nine pairs of ordinary Australians turn into shrewd Fugitives, with their eyes on the prize – one million dollars – which is being held at the Savings Bank of Ballarat. It’s a modern-day bank heist as the Fugitives break into the bank and steal the money, before making their getaway to disappear without a trace.

The goal is to make it to the extraction point in 20 days, all while evading capture from the Hunters, a team of some of the best investigators formally of the AFP, ADF, and British Intelligence, as well as special operations and cyber security experts.

These dedicated, experienced, and sharply trained Hunters must use their arsenal of tools to capture the Fugitives at large. They must be ruthless in their conclusions, masterful in their tactics, and relentless in their captures.

The Hunters will stop at nothing to outthink, outsmart, and outrun the Fugitives striving to escape.

If they evade capture, the money is theirs to keep.

Hunted: The Million Dollar Heist is produced by Endemol Shine Australia (A Banijay Company).


So the story for season 3 actually began in Ballarat, but the hunt started when the van carrying the teams (who had stolen the money) arrived in Geelong.

I’m calling it now with $1 mil on the line for the prize, no one will win this year.


Looks like former AFLW player Akec Makur Chuot is a contestant in season 3. Saw a post on Instagram tonight.

Isn’t it only how much they can carry on them…? so no one would win $1 mil anyway.

The rules are set! Can the Fugitives avoid capture AND keep the cash? 💸🏃‍♀️#HuntedAU Million Dollar Heist 💰 After the Olympics on @Channel10AU and 10 Play.

Considering how skewed the show often seems to be in the Hunters favour it’s probably in coins rather than notes anyway. :grin:

And despite each pair having $100k in cash on them they probably still have to use an ATM so they drop a pin anyway.

The fictional Savings Bank of Ballarat is actually the Courthouse Theatre at Federation University’s SMB (School of Mines Ballarat) campus. Next door is the former Ballarat Gaol.
