Reality TV's Mantracker Joins Hunt for Missing Gamer

October 26, 2008 -

The star of a Canadian reality TV show has joined in the search for missing Xbox Live gamer Brandon Crisp.

As reported by the Vancouver Sun, Terry Grant, who stars in Mantracker, arrived at the seach location on Friday evening. Barrie Police Dept. spokesman Sgt. Dave Goodbrand commented:

He has followed the story for a number of days and he has come to assist with the volunteer party.

Meanwhile, Simcoe.com has these remarks from Grant:

Search and rescue is what I’ve done for 12 years. I thought it’s a worthwhile cause to come out here and see if I can help organize some of the volunteers and give a little bit of guidance where necessary... This [search operation] is huge. The volunteers who are organizing this are doing an awesome job. They are going above and beyond here.

A Wikipedia entry for the Mantracker program summarizes its format:

Two people take off into the bush with a map, a compass and a head start. The tracker is on horseback, armed with a local guide and an arsenal of forensic skills. The prey have 36 hours to reach a finish line some 40 kilometers away without getting caught. How they escape is up to them.

Brandon is reportedly a fan of the show.

That article link at the bottom refers to CoD4 as a WWII online game. WHY DOES NOTHING MAKE SENSE?

Re: Reality TV's Mantracker Joins Hunt for Missing Gamer

Regardless of the bloke who finds Brandon, I just hope he comes back home safe and sound.

This better not turn into one of those cases where the parents did something to the kid.

Re: Reality TV's Mantracker Joins Hunt for Missing Gamer

This is turning out to be quite the circus.  I hope they find him.

Re: Reality TV's Mantracker Joins Hunt for Missing Gamer

If Brandon was a fan of this show, then how come it's not being blamed for his disappearance? For all everyone knows, the show might have given ideas on how to go awol and not be found.

 Man Tracker is awesome. He's the Canadian Chuck Norris

Re: Reality TV's Mantracker Joins Hunt for Missing Gamer

Sorry, in my mind the only Canadian Chuck Norris is Les Stroud from Survivorman.  Not sure if that gets played up in Canada (not sure why it wouldn't, seeing how the show's on Discovery Channel, which I would imagine is aired in Canada), but the guy's a beast. 

Re: Reality TV's Mantracker Joins Hunt for Missing Gamer

I watched one episode of mantracker and it's pretty good, but I never really see it in the TV guide.

Re: Reality TV's Mantracker Joins Hunt for Missing Gamer

Of course it helps that the tracker knows the destination, so he gets some freebie clues as to likely zones to check when using his forensic kit.

Here they know what direction Brandon started going, but after that, they don't really know his destination.

Still, every contribution helps. Well, those who give actual help, not offer lawsuit advice from across the continent...

Ahh, when all else fails, bring in Sean Connery.

I guess any loco can join in on this one can't they?  Okay everyone, call in Nancy Grace, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton (might as well blame the white man with the video games since the white man made video games), Will Farrell, and our very own John Bruce.

Wonderkarpyep. but they werent bebop and rocksteady yet. so technically i'm right :P01/28/2015 - 5:00pm
E. Zachary KnightBebop and Rocksteady have already been introduced in the human forms. They were the duo after Shredder's helmet.01/28/2015 - 4:55pm
Wonderkarpmy only complaint is no bluray boxed season sets yet. WTF Nickelodian!01/28/2015 - 4:42pm
Wonderkarpthe voice acting and story telling quality are awesome. Its like they took everything that was great about the original show, and Batman Animated Series'd it but kept it funny too01/28/2015 - 4:41pm
WonderkarpIts Awesome. Bebop and Rocksteady are going to debut this weekend. The new take is Bebop is a thief while Rocksteady is an arms dealer. took 3 seasons to get them on the show.01/28/2015 - 4:41pm
Goth_SkunkAhh! I see. I'm afraid I'm too invested in Game of Thrones, The Newsroom, The Walking Dead, and Hemlock Grove to notice the new TMNT on TV. :(01/28/2015 - 4:40pm
E. Zachary KnightMy kids love watching the 90's TMNT movies. They love the new TMNT cartoon on Nick. Yet, none of them really enjoyed the the new one.01/28/2015 - 4:39pm
Wonderkarpexecution and if there is a real wanting for something new on the big screen. There is somewhat of a wanting for new Ghostbusters on the big screen, but most people seem to agree that the new film shares little with ghostbusters beyond its original premis01/28/2015 - 4:38pm
Wonderkarpadding homages to classic via good storytelling. The new TMNT movie was just a crappy Bayformers affair that did nothing to develop character, with a mishmash of a story. Nerd Culture can accept new takes on older franchises. It just depends on the01/28/2015 - 4:37pm
Wonderkarpactually, Goth_Skunk, TMNT is a thriving TV show on Nickelodian which has enough old and new storytelling to create a thriving new product. its in its 3rd season and it just gets better as a show. The CGI Show is universally praised for being new yet01/28/2015 - 4:36pm
Goth_SkunkI propose that the new TMNT movie was not about making nostalgic adult nerds smile, but introducing the franchise to a new generation of younger fans. And some of those fans may even be kids of the nerds that grew up with the original TMNT.01/28/2015 - 3:55pm
Goth_Skunk...disservice to the franchise. But when I look at it, I see a franchise fanbase that, the last time anything major happened in the franchise, all its fans were kids. Those kids have now all grown up and are adults.01/28/2015 - 3:54pm
