Hunted Australia: The brutal scenes you didn't see on television


The brutal scenes you didn’t see on Hunted Australia: Winners Rob and Stathi reveal the moments producers couldn’t show on TV

Hunted Australia winners Rob Harneiss and Stathi Vamvoulidis have spoken of the scenes that were cut from the Channel 10 reality show.

During the gripping series, the fugitives often asked members of the public for assistance and many were shown helping them.

But Rob told news.com.au this wasn’t the case most of the time, but the scenes of bystanders refusing to help the contestant weren’t shown on TV.

Rob said he and Stathi received no help from the public.

‘Not a single person wanted to help you when you’re out on the streets looking for help,’ he explained.

‘People would just look at you. You’d think that having a camera with you would help, but it didn’t.’

Rob said ’90 per cent of people’ he approached on the run wouldn’t assist him.

Stathi added: ‘That rejection, it makes you doubt yourself and gets you into that paranoid mindset, which is exactly what you don’t need when you’re on the run.’

Rob and Stathi won Hunted Australia during Tuesday night’s finale.

In the nail-biting season finale, the two men were whisked away in a red helicopter on a beach in Inverloch after hunters failed to catch them.

Rob was first on the aircraft with Stathi having just minutes left to join him in order to take the $100,000 prize money.

Rob made a quick blitz to the awaiting helicopter after getting to the site via car.

Stathi opted to try to blend in with locals before making a break for it.

Rob was elated as he made it to the helicopter, taking a dig at the people who claimed he couldn’t do it.

‘That heavy-set boy won. And he beat you. I put a lot of time and effort into planning for this,’ he said. 

‘The strategy for me was hiding in plain sight, not acting like a Fugitive, decoying, dressing up.’

Stathi was equally impressed with his skills as he made it to the helicopter, with the hunters failing to catch him.

‘It’s taught me a lot about myself, my resilience. Not many people know how this feels. Oh, mate. The paranoia, the stress, the anxiety,’ he said of the experience.

‘Not knowing who was on your back. Being on the run, it was exhausting,’ he added.

Both Rob and Stathi said they would split the prize money with their captured teammates, meaning each will walk away with $25,000.
