The CW Rips Off The Hunger Games, Premieres Capture

by at . Comments

Contestants on The CW were hoping the odds were ever in their favor last night.

The network debuted one of the more unusual reality show we've seen in awhile, a competition titled Capture that made no secret it was modeled after The Hunger Games.

The show pit a dozen teams of two against each other, confining competitors to a 4,000-acre wilderness compound. It included actual threats such as difficult terrain and, well, bears.

On each installment, one pairing is chosen to be hunters and this unit has two days to track down and “capture” two teams. Consider it an extreme game of tag - and a pretty cool concept if you ask us, even if its lack originality.

Did you catch the Capture premiere?
