The adrenaline-pumping reality TV show, Hunted, is back for a second season on Channel Ten. The show features ten teams of two who must put their survival skills to the test and outsmart a group of skilled hunters for 21 days. Each team aims to prove they have what it takes to disappear completely “off the grid” while avoiding capture by the relentless pursuers.

One of the teams from this season hails from Western Australia, and we had the privilege of having one-half of the duo, Bayan Massoudi on the show. With a background spanning seven years in the Army and experience in high-profile asset protection, including securing Michael Jackson and Queen Elizabeth II, Bayan appears to be well-prepared for the challenging contest ahead.

Bayan shared that after watching the first season, he found Hunted to be an incredible show, and the hunters themselves seemed almost “mythical” in their abilities. Bayan’s competitive spirit and desire to test himself against the best led him to seize this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Not to mention, the enticing $100,000 prize and the bragging rights that come with it.

Misinformation, disguises and fake clues

Bayan and his teammate Eesha have put a lot of thought into their strategy for staying under the radar. They plan to use people with a loose connection to them for assistance to avoid being betrayed. They will also employ misinformation tactics, disguises, and false clues to try and mislead their hunters. Bayan doesn’t want to leave anything to chance in their quest for survival.

When asked about the biggest concern facing the team, Bayan highlighted their lack of experience in this unique situation. Unlike the well-equipped hunters, who have access to extensive resources, the fugitives start with only the clothes on their backs and a small backpack. It’s a true David versus Goliath scenario, and the odds are stacked against them. Nevertheless, Bayan’s determination and resilience shine through, and he remains optimistic that with a bit of luck, prayers, and the grace of God, they might just claim victory.

Bayan urged fans to show their support by following his Instagram account (@bayanmassoudi) for exciting updates and behind-the-scenes moments from the show.

With the secret location and the hunters’ relentless pursuit adding to the suspense, Hunted promises an edge-of-your-seat viewing experience that will keep audiences hooked. Tune in Sunday – Tuesday at 7:30 PM on Channel Ten to witness the action and see if Bayan and Eesha have what it takes to survive the hunt and claim the ultimate prize.
