Your Lucky Break:<em> Mantracker</em> Looking For Contestants

Your Lucky Break:<em> Mantracker</em> Looking For Contestants

We recently fielded a request from a production company that needs help finding adventure-seeking outdoorsmen (and women) who would like to be featured on an episode of Mantracker, to air nationally on the Discovery Science channel. The show is filmed in a variety of picturesque locales, and will be coming to The Big Island of Hawai`i this winter to film in an undisclosed location. The production company is in search of a pair of participants. They must have some relation, according a statement by the producer, which includes: husband and wife, siblings, friends, co-workers, in-laws, exes, or even sworn enemies.

Have you ever wanted to run through the woods with your mother-in-law? Ex wife? That hottie that sits a few cubes away from you at work? Here's your chance to spend a lovely 36 hours in the woods running and hiding, all under the watchful eyes of the camera. Tempting, no?

If you haven't seen the show, the premise is thus: Local talent (with a knowledge of their home turf geography) are "tracked" by a forensic expert on a 25-mile jaunt over the course of 36 hours. The "prey" has a 1.5 mile head start, a compass and a map with a secret destination. The tracker has nothing but his wits, years of experience hunting down fugitives and the aide of a local guide to find his prey.

Application deadline is November 13, 2009, and can be downloaded at www.Mantracker.ca (that's ".ca" for Canada, people). Or, you can email the production coordinator directly, at contact@bonterraproductions.com. Remember, this is for people with heightened outdoor skills in top shape. The producers cite "intense physical and mental obstacles are needed to survive this challenge".

Bring it on!

Mantracker airs on Discovery Science every Wednesday at 10 p.m., EST.
