Lane twins take part in reality game show

Competitors from "CHA$E," the Lane twins are the third pair from the left.

Law enforcement officials aren't on their trail.

There is no angry mob.

But for an hour this evening, a pair of Wayne County natives will be hunted.

Gary and Larry Lane will appear on the SciFi channel's newest reality game show tonight at 10 p.m.

"CHA$E" pits a group of contestants against each other in downtown Los Angeles with one goal in mind -- securing a $50,000 prize by avoiding "relentless hunters."

Gary said filming the show was "intense."

"You play for an hour straight, and every so often they will release more hunters into the game," he said. "It's kind of like a big game of tag."

A game of tag that takes place in real time and earns contestants cash for every second they "stay alive."

And "if you are the first to get to the exit point, you get the money," Gary said.

This is not the first time the Lane twins have had an opportunity to compete for money.

On ABC's "Set For Life," they won $120,000.

"It's fun," Gary said. "We just keep playing these twin games and it's been going well."

But he would not say whether or not he and his brother would take home the prize on tonight's show.

So tune into SciFi tonight and cheer on Wayne's most famous twins.

And who knows?

You might even see their Dr. Scholls spot during one of the commercial breaks.
