I haven't watched UK version yet but will the teams record themselves? Because if there is cameraman with the teams, there are more chance for them to be caught?

I saw the first 2 seasons and it's a sole cameraman who also hides with them. The cameraman is as part of the game as the fugitives are.

Surely a cameraman. It would be bad quality if the contestants filmed it.

Something I will be very curious about is how they edit the season. Usually the UK version focuses on 3-4 entities per episode (with UK 1 focusing on only 2-3)!

We're for sure not going to meet all the teams in the premiere unless it's 60 minutes of nothing much happening.

Liked the show, but I have a lot of questions.

Is there a time limit between the $100 withdrawals?
How soon can they start planning?  When they're chosen for the show?  Or when they're given the 48-hour notice?
What kind of cameras are the hunters accessing?  Actual police cameras?
Can you purchase burner phones before the start?
Could you cache food and other supplies ahead of time?
Could you not pack a "go" bag before your 48-hr notice?
Can you separate from your partner?  Or do you have to stay within so many feet of each other?
ETA:  Were all the teams running at the same time?  Or were there staggered starts so that only a few teams were running at the same time?

These are just the questions I remember off the top of my head.

I really liked the show but I need to see the rules.  These were posted on the CBS website:

Quote
These are the rules of the hunt:

    Fugitives must stay within a 100,000-square mile hunt zone.
    Fugitives will be given a one-hour head start before Hunters are alerted.
    Fugitives are provided limited funds.
    Command Center is given only a name, photo, and last known location.
    Fugitives that evade capture win $250,000 per team./quote]


There were also some additions to the rules from a narrator during the show.

For example: 
Quote
During their time on the run each fugitive team can only access money via a bank account containing a total of five hundred dollars, and they can withdraw up to one hundred dollars at a time.

The hundred dollars at a time - Do they have to use different banks?  Could they just stand there and withdraw $100 at a time?  Do they have a time limit between withdrawals?

Dear Lord: So far today, I'm doing alright. I have not gossiped, lost my temper, been greedy, grumpy, selfish or nasty. I have not gossiped, cursed, whined or eaten chocolate. However, I am going to get out of bed in a minute, and will need a lot more help then. Amen.

My answers are per the UK version.

A. No.
B. This is unclear but it is assumed that once they're cast that they're allowed to prepare for obvious reasons.
C. There are state-owned cameras that the Command Center asks for public request. There were also Channel 4-owned subsidiary cameras in the UK.
D. Unclear but considering how many of the fugitives only go for a burner after the run begins, it's leaning to a no.
E. Ditto.
F. Ditto.
G. The UK actually has individual fugitives and two teams have split up after fighting in the 2 seasons that have aired. No clue if they are allowed yet in the US because there are no individual fugitives.
H. The same time. You could see pictures of the other fugitives on the wall during the first episode, the editing is only to provide cohesive storylines to certain number of teams per episode.
I. They are allowed to go to any bank as long as the card is accepted.

Hope I answered them to your liking :)

Good ones Harley!

My question is...do they HAVE to stay on the move? I would just crawl into a hole/tent somewhere and stay there for 28 days. Clearly based on the pencil calendar you can do preplanning, they had a whole agenda. Seems like it would be possible  to prep a snug hole somewhere.

They are allowed to stay in any particular area as long as they want but their own paranoia usually gets the better of them.

I agree with Gamer. I guess you could stay in the wilderness for the whole time, but that would make it a mightly boring show...

We're not talking about the producers perspective anyway, Bourkie.
