'Hunted' Viewers Accuse Hunters Of Cheating As They Brand Show A Fix

Hunted viewers have branded the Channel 4 show a fix after the hunters managed catch all the fugitives for the first time in the programe's history, in the dramatic final episode.

Fans were in disbelief when the extraction point ended up being on a car park roof, with many viewers tweeting it would've been impossible for the contestants to win.

One fan questioned the tactics of the hunters, asking: "Isn't it cheating if you literally just sit at the extraction point... like what are the contestants supposed to do? Have a massive game of tag on the roof whilst the helicopter lands? #hunted." That's a fair point.

Another dedicated viewer raged: "Invested 6 hours of my life on this year's #Hunted for a security guard to give away the extraction location and make it impossible for anyone to win."

"To the Hunted team, you have to pay those top lads, Nate & Frank. They made, you owe them - impossible task, cough up guys - they won #Hunted," a third added.

"Absolutley gutted for harry&frank and Ish!! So close but such a fix!! #hunted [sic]," a fourth raged.

Ish was the first to be caught when he was forced to stop under a bridge while his bike got a puncture. The hunters managed to get hold of his notebook and used it to get information on him.

They offered him an impressive £4,000 to give up the extraction point but Ish remained strong and chose not to betray his fellow fugitives.

The hunters then caught up with Harry, before capturing Nate and Frank as they made their way to the top of car park.

But viewers were left convinced it was too easy for the hunters to suddenly appear and capture the remaining contestants.

One fan wrote: "Genuinely gutted for Frank. Impossible extraction point and he did so well to make it to the roof."
