Noelle and Sabrina, the black team, are the Brooklyn girls and I think I like them because they remind me of that SNL skit "Bronx Beat." They are planning on being social climbers and getting ahead by flirting. Why does everyone think this is about flirting?
Luke Tipple introduces the Talon next, the tool used to capture prey. It's a "kill switch" that captures a team when it strikes the vest of a prey team. Then, they will wait in a cell to face possible elimination. The first Hunt Team (oh my god, so many rules and lingo on this show, I wish they could just call it The Hanger Gums and name everything the same but a letter or two off) is Ryan and Erica, the parkour couple. They're totally amped. The hunt team has two days to capture two teams and the rest of the prey will have the opportunity to send one of those teams home at the elimination.
Luke Tipple sends all the teams off into the hunting ground and after plenty of that charging up sound effect, they're off. Next we meet Jade and Nikita, who are obviously the sexiest because they are twins with British accents. Nobody could resist them. Their plan, obviously, is to flirt. To hide, and also to flirt. I think they are the light blue team?
The green team is comprised of Kareem and Antoine, who are very confident college buddies from Philly. They are concerned that there might be booby traps out in the terrain on day one, and it's like they didn't hear a damn word Luke Tipple said. Back at the not-cornucopia, Luke tells Ryan and Erica to remember to turn their talons on before they tag their prey or it won't count. Also, they have to capture two teams in two days because if they only capture one, they will be up for elimination. If they don't capture any teams, they are automatically eliminated. Lovin' it. OK, Luke Tipple, I'm into it now.
Clouds move in and they tried to make it look like there was lightning in post. Luke announces that the Hunt Team will be released, and Ryan and Erica go jogging off into the woods. They are closest to the red team and I swear to god if they take away my gay neighbors so quickly I will throw a fit. The neighbors show off the tracking devices they have on their arms that provide a map of the terrain. If they stay in one place for more than three minutes, it will reveal their location to the Hunt Team. We just need like, fifteen more rules, please.
With three and a half hours left, the Hunt Team is trying to figure out where they are and what they're doing. Parkour is not helping them. Fortunately, they are closing in on the green team, our college buddies. No one uses flirting to get ahead. One of them senses that they're being chased and they break into a sprint as Ryan and Erica turn on their talons. So many charging-up noises, it's like a bunch of disposable cameras preparing to use flash.
