Hunted Australia viewers are left furious over a ‘wildly unfair’ twist

Viewers of Hunted Australia have been left furious over an ‘unfair’ twist that saw one half of a team get caught on Sunday’s episode.

Bondi couple Lavinia and Nick spent two weeks completely off the grid by avoiding friends and family, and not using the bank cards given to them at the start of the competition.

But eventually the pair found themselves in need of money because they were getting ‘cold, tired and hungry’.

However, just as they went to withdraw the cash they were entitled to spend, as per the rules of the game, the Hunters decided to throw a spanner in the works.

They froze the team’s ATM card in a bid to catch them – even though all the other teams had taken advantage of this emergency cash resource.

In CCTV footage, Lavinia made several attempts to withdraw cash without luck. 

The Hunters cheered back at HQ as she struggled to work out why one of their few lifelines had been taken away before they could even use it.

Viewers flocked to Twitter to express their anger and frustration, labelling the Hunters’ decision ‘unfair’.

‘Hey freezing their bank accounts.. is that fair?’ another added. 

Meanwhile, several viewers accused the Hunters of ‘cheating’.

‘The Hunters cancelling the bank cards is cheating… everyone else on the run can use theirs still,’ one wrote.

‘Here’s a card with $500, but you can’t withdraw it all at once, and we’ll cancel it at any time we choose to. This show is addictive but utter bulls**t.’

‘Don’t think it’s fair that the hunters cancel or freeze bank cards. It’s a game and that feels like cheating… too much power and now manipulation!’ another fan tweeted.

The shock twist comes after last week’s ‘unAustralian’ betrayal which saw aunt-and-niece duo Karen and Brittany get caught after being tipped off by their bus driver.

Also on Sunday’s episode, friends Puneet and Kris dropped by the remote country property of one of their contacts, but fled after becoming suspicious the Hunters where on their tail.

The Hunters managed to capture the pair, as well as Nick, leaving his partner Lavinia on her own with no money.

The Hunted team is still tracking down five contestants – Stathi and Matt, Jake and Rob, and Lavinia – who are on the run with just a few days left.
