Like a real-life version of the Hunger Games, a new reality game show being launched in Russia will allow anything to take place, and we mean anything – including murder and rape.
In ‘Game2: Winter’, 30 participants (who will obviously need to be over 18) will be paying £132,000 to participate in the show and if neccessary, will fight to the death to win the prize money of £1.3 million.
Some people will also be chosen via an online poll and will get to take part for free.
If you thought celebrities being left to fend for themselves in the I’m a Celebrity… Australian jungle was intense, wait until you hear about this…
After being dumped in the middle of the Siberian wilderness, contestants will each be given a knife to hunt for food (or for murder, whatever takes their fancy) and will then do all they can to survive temperatures as low as -40C for nine months. Not only that, but they’ll be surrounded by wild bears and wolves, also looking for their next meal.
Russian millionaire Yevgeny Pyatkovsky is the one organising the insane event and has said:
‘We will refuse any claim of participants even if they were to be killed or raped. We will have nothing to do with this. This will be spelt out in a document to be signed by the participant before the start of the show.’
The rules state: ‘Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, anything.’
Smoking?! That’s a bit strong.
However, those contestants hoping they can just quickly kill everyone off and blag themselves the prize money will be disappointed, as the law will still apply and those found to be breaking it will be faced with the full force of the police.
Pyatkovsky added: ‘There will be no film crew – the whole area will be dotted with cameras and each participant will be carrying a portable camera with seven-hour life rechargeable battery.’
He believes the show will attract ‘rich and risky’ participants looking for a new, exciting challenge.
Seems some people have way too much money for their own good…
