Here are the highlights from episode three of Hunted Australia 2023.

Megan is finally caught

During the July 18 episode, Megan managed to escape the clutches of the Ground Team, while her niece Gracie had been caught.

However, a drone was deployed by Alpha and Bravo, flushing her out, leading to the capture of the Hunter’s second Fugitive team.


Ed and Jimi’s online booking blunder

Ed and Jimi have been laying low in Melbourne’s East, with the help of Jimi’s mum, Joanne who had driven 1000 km to help them escape the suburbs. However, the Cyber Team were able to find out their next move after Joanne made an online hotel booking. While Team Bravo went on the hunt, the duo managed to escape on foot.

Ben and Callum’s home computers were accessed

Over at Hunted HQ, the Cyber team set their sights on gamer friends Ben and Callum, who have caused some trouble during their attempts to infiltrate the Hunter network. Cyberteam member Steph then discovered that Callum and Ben shared a home with Callum’s fiancé Sarah.

Since their capture is now personal, Steph paid Sarah a visit under the guise of an admin assistant to gain access to the Fugitives’ home computers.


Glenn and Taylah narrowly avoid capture…again

Glenn and Taylah moved from Bendigo to Melbourne, securing a new car to hit the road, before ditching the car and then catching a lift with a stranger. Using the same person’s phone, they called an associate to arrange a safe haven; however, unaware that many of their contact’s phones had been put on intercept by the Hunters.

With this, the Hunters managed to overhear their next step, deploying ground teams Bravo and Charlie to the large complex in Richmond where the duo were headed.

Unfortunately, the Hunters went to the wrong apartment, with Glenn and Taylah narrowly evading capture once again.
