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, and that he and Stathi received no help from bystanders.

However, the scenes of people refusing to help the fugitives weren’t shown on TV. 

‘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’s finale.

In the nail-biting closing moments, the men were whisked away in a helicopter on a beach in Inverloch after the hunters failed to catch them.

Rob was elated as he made it to the chopper, taking a dig at the naysayers who said 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.’

Hunted Australia will return for a second season next year.
