Remember the CW Hunger Games based reality show The Hunt? Well, it’s been renamed Capture and ETonline is giving fans a first look!

 

Capture will place 12 teams of two into “The Arena” where they will live for one month while competing for limited resources. The official description actually says “the teams must hunt each other down to survive,” which definitely has a very Hunger Games sound to it. The winning team will get $250,000.

 

ETonline can also exclusively reveal that Luke Tipple, an Australian marine biologist, will take time out from swimming with sharks to host Capture.

Tipple has hosted television shows for the Discovery Channel, Nat Geo, Animal Planet, while his travels have taken him around the globe. As a marine biologist and adventure guide, he's come face to face with some of the world's most dangerous predators, and survived -- he's even one of the pioneers of out of cage experiences with Great White Sharks!

Clearly his expertise will be essential to the team's survival in these harsh conditions. Will they heed his advice? Only time will tell!

 

Capture will debut on July 31, 9PM EST on CW.

See you next week, Tributes!
