New CW Show ‘Capture’ is a Real-Life ‘Hunger Games’
If you can’t wait till November to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, then a new CW show may be able to quench your thirst for some head-to-head survival competition. The CW created its first and only reality TV show Capture, loosely based off the Hunger Games. In the new and intense reality series 12 teams of two live in a “high-tech wilderness compound” for one month, and the last team standing wins $250,000.
The teams have limited rations and compete for scarce resources on the Hunting Grounds. Each week new teams are designated as the hunters. But can the contestants survive as savages in the wilderness after being pulled out from civilization? The competitors will have to battle brutal weather conditions, exhaustion, starvation, and each other. Don’t worry, the teams won’t be killing each other with bow and arrows and spears. The hunters must capture their prey using a GPS tracking device and tagging them with the Talon.
Luke Tipple hosts the show as the Game Master. Tipple decreases the size of the Hunting Grounds every time a team is captured. The smaller Hunting Grounds makes it harder for competitors to hide and find resources. What does it take to hunt and hide from your enemies? Athleticism? Strategy? Even sabotage? Tune in to find out July 30th at 9 PM on the CW.
