Alberta-native Chad Savage is the new Mantracker! Savage, an unapologetic cowboy who grew up in the shadow of Alberta's Rocky Mountains, adds a fierce edge to Mantracker Season 7's competition. Certified by the acclaimed Emergency Response Institute of Canada, he studies the art of tracking humans and will do whatever it takes to ensure success in his pursuit for conquest.
Savage trained with the Royal Canadian Air Cadets where he honed his skills in navigation, survival and sniper training, in addition to flying small aircrafts. From there, he took jobs in the oil industry where he worked on everything from oil rigs to pipelines to heavy machinery. After realizing his true calling, Savage became a professional wilderness guide, travelling from Northern B.C. and the Yukon to Africa and Asia. With his quick wits, specialized skills and better-than-average eyesight, Savage has spent countless hours tracking a wide variety of species.
Bringing the thrill of the hunt to a whole new level, Season 7 of Mantracker will see Savage proving his prowess all season long as the new and untamed huntsman with all the qualities – and more – necessary to take down any target. Despite his skill, Savage will face intense challenges and hard-hitting competitors in some of the most wild landscapes across North America including: Crowsnest Pass, Alberta; Elliot lake, Ontario; Big Island, Hawaii; and Florida. Taking a chance against the new cowboy, this season's prey are comprised of a female cage fighter, actors from Toronto and Los Angeles, Toronto Roller Derby chicks, a wild boar trapper, a pre-med student and police officers from the mounted unit in Toronto.
