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.

MattsworknameI dont think so, I think that between the lose of iga, kojima, and so forth, i think MGS 5 will be less succesfull then they think, and tha will spell there end.07/05/2015 - 7:08pm
Andrew EisenI'm sure the Metal Gear micro-transactions will keep 'em afloat!07/05/2015 - 6:58pm
MattsworknameKonami is dying, slowly, surely, inevitably. Capcom is in the same situation, and I think that if they don't get there respective acts together, there going to pull a thq and sell off all there IP.07/05/2015 - 6:51pm
Andrew EisenHowever, if you have a gaming PC and like PC gaming, the Wii U is arguably the best console you could get (unless you just don't care for Nintendo's games, of course).07/05/2015 - 6:07pm
Andrew EisenAnyway, if the Wii U is your only gaming platform, yeah, you're missing out on a ton of great stuff.07/05/2015 - 6:06pm

Matthew Wilson@AE the wiiu may have the best exclusives among consoles, but lack of third party support kills it. now if we want to play the exclusives game, the pc wins, not just in numbers,but some of the best games I have played.07/05/2015 - 5:53pm

InfophileI know the ZE series was in the red in Japan, but international series boosted it to profitability. That may not mean it's more profitable in the west, but it does mean ZE3 wouldn't exist without the western market.07/04/2015 - 7:54am
