Father-Son Duo Tharren and Jordan Are Ready to Take on ‘Hunted Australia’

Hunted Australia Fugitives Jordan and Tharren

After taking Australia by storm last year, Hunted is back, and according to Chief David Craig, the Fugitives have learned from last year. Chatting to The Latch, the Chief said that while last season was a “chase”, this season is “a showdown” between the Hunters and the Fugitives. With $100,000 on the line, it’s a high stakes game of cat and mouse, but not everyone will make it to the end. Let’s meet two of the people joining the Hunted Australia cast this year.

Hunted Australia Cast 2023: Meet Jordan and Tharren

Tharren, 53, and Jordan, 29, are a father-son duo who are ready to take on the adventure of a lifetime on Hunted Australia.

From the jump, the bond between them is evident. In a press statement, Jordan notes that Tharren was his childhood hero. Meanwhile, Tharren becomes emotional with pride while talking about all that Jordan has achieved in his life so far.

When they’re not on the run from the Hunters, Tharren works as a Pastor in a Juvenile Detention Centre for boys. Before taking this role, he worked as a builder. Jordan, on the other hand, is a high school teacher, but he used to be a chef, and he’s sure that will come in handy while they’re on the run.

While the pair are excited for all that lies ahead on Hunted, Jordan will also celebrate his 30th birthday on the run. He’ll also miss his son’s second birthday, which is sure to be an emotional day for the family. Tharren hopes he’ll be able to make these days special for Jordan while they’re cut off from their loved ones.

Jordan and Tharren’s Hunted Australia Game Plan

Jordan and Tharren are hoping to rely on their church and the connections they have within the community, but they’re also hoping to rely on the kindness of strangers.

Being a Pastor, Tharren is hoping the regional churches will come through for them, and even provide them with a place to sleep overnight if necessary.

Along the way, they plan to perform one good deed a day, with the logic being that if they put good out into the universe, it will come back to them also.

How Jordan Would Spend the Prize Money

For Jordan, winning Hunted would be life-changing. He’d use the prize money to put toward a house deposit for him and his family. Jordan is the father of two young children, and his wife is currently expecting their third.

Meanwhile, Tharren is less invested in the prize money and is instead in it for the experience. He’s looking forward to gaining insight into the lives of the young juveniles he mentors, and wants to be able to understand and appreciate their experiences more.
