Manhunt, which debuted August 3 on UPN, sent 13 contestants on a six-day journey through Kauai while being chased by paintball gun-wielding "hunters". Inspired by the short story "The Most Dangerous Game", "Manhunt" takes 13 contestants to the Hawaiian island Kauai. Each day, a vote is held and one contestant must run a capture-the-flag relay through a "gauntlet", where three "hunters" fire paintballs at them. If hit, the contestant is disqualified. The last contestant remaining wins the $250,000 grand prize.
