THE EPIC HUNT FOR THE EVER-ELUSIVE SASQUATCH KICKS OFF WHEN "10 MILLION DOLLAR BIGFOOT BOUNTY" PREMIERES FRIDAY, JANUARY 10 AT 10 PM ET/PT ON SPIKE TV

Dean Cain Hosts and Leads The Ambitious Expedition

World Respected Scientist Dr. Todd Disotell and Primatologist Natalia Reagan Serve as Scientific Experts

New York, NY, December 4, 2013 - Bigfoot sightings have been reported for centuries, but concrete evidence of the creature's existence has yet to reveal itself. Spike TV is raising the stakes by not only putting a massive $10 million incentive on the line for irrefutable proof, but by hand-selecting the strongest competitors, securing top scientists, providing state-of-the-art technology and taking the hunt to the most remote corners of the Pacific Northwest, where Sasquatch sightings are most prevalent. "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" debuts on Friday, January 10 at 10PM ET/PT on Spike TV.

"10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" is a unique competition series following nine determined teams comprised of lifelong Bigfoot hunters and big game hunters as they set out to capture Bigfoot himself or provide definitive visual and DNA proof of its existence. The "squatchers" must ply their extensive research and presumed knowledge of the legendary creature to earn their place, all while battling nature's inhospitable weather conditions, rough terrain and combative clashing personalities. The $10 million cash prize, underwritten by Lloyd's of London, is one of the largest cash prizes ever offered in television history.

Avid outdoorsman and hunter Dean Cain ("Hit the Floor") will serve as the expedition leader, helping the teams utilize their skills to the best of their ability. Serving as scientific experts are Dr. Todd Disotell and Natalia Reagan. Disotell holds a PhD from Harvard and is a biological anthropologist who runs New York University's molecular primatology lab. He has been a part of research teams that have discovered several new species and subspecies of primates. Reagan is a primatologist with a Master's degree in anthropology. She specializes in primate conservation and has a wealth of experience tracking monkeys in the wild.

Each week, teams are put to the test, competing in two grueling challenges: a field test and a lengthy hunt in a famous and active Bigfoot hot zone to collect incontrovertible DNA and visual evidence of Bigfoot. Teams will then present what they've gathered and their theories to a judges' panel made up of Cain, Disotell and Reagan, who will consider and hold all evidence to the highest scientific standards. DNA evidence will be processed utilizing Disotell's state-of-the-art mobile DNA lab that can obtain DNA results in the most remote locations within a day - science that will forever alter the landscape of Bigfoot hunting. In the case proof is not found, the team that presented the most compelling evidence and theory will be given a $100,000 research grant to continue their search.
