From this awesome Interview with David and Emiley:

https://www.facebook.com/Tad-Lemire-621431691374449/videos/

They were told they had 72 hours... then they were put on the run almost immediately

ATM once a day limit, $100max at a day. must go at least twice

Can't bring money, can't work for money

Must move every two days

After day 3 had a $30 cap on gifts (after they got $500worth of burner phones lol)

Couldn't use same resources (people) over and over

Can't go back to same place twice

Production can add a rule or take away a rule at any time (learning live!!)

Emiley believes show may be renewed for 2-3 seasons more

I have a question, and I don't know if there is a particular answer, but often times we have seen wanted posters with monetary incentive, but IIRC they all say something along the lines of may be rewarded with money. Does production follow up and actually give financial rewards for tips from people?

They offered and were accepted for $500 this episode.

I saw that, and I am assuming they were eventually paid (even though it was not shown). I'm just curious about the tip lines where on the wanted posters, where they said they MAY be offered a reward. I was just wondering if the people who gave a tip (like for Will & Miles) if they got rewarded or not.

interesting comment from reddit:

I know someone who worked on season 1 of this show and they seriously have a 99% chance of winning as long as they make it to the bank.

Once they get to the bank the rest of the show is scripted. They have an entire hour to go from the bank to the plane which is always under 2 miles away.

The chasing team basically sits down the road from the plane and waits for the 1-hour timer to expire then they are allowed to roll up and "catch" them.

You literally can walk the entire distance from the bank to your plane without getting caught as long as you take less then an hour to get there.

Also, the bank and run to the plane is completely blocked off to the public. Every car that goes by and every person on camera in "public" during the ending run is a planned part of the show. The runners also have a police escort the ENTIRE time.

Also, season 2 is filming in July.

Ooooh, I never even thought about that, but it would be really cool if they chose a different hunt zone each season!

I hope it's not in the south again.  July in the south is extremely hot and humid.  And it doesn't get cooler at night.  Any physical activity just drains you. 

My vote would be for somewhere out west.
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.

Remember, they want them near friends and family. And they can't dilute their own resources all over the country either. Will be interesting to see if they try a whole different area or not... I'd love Pacific NW!

Honestly I would just love a new hunt zone. I don't care where it is, just anywhere new!

I think we're most likely getting a new hunt zone, based on the fact that Season 1 was in the Southeast and there are many more regions in the US (obviously).

A change of scenery would be great, and they don't even have to change the Command Center office set.

Just cast people who have lived in that new hunting zone.

I would like to see the north parts of the USA being featured.
