As far as reality TV goes, I’ve heard some pretty extreme premises for a show, but this has to be the craziest one yet.
According to The Guardian Russia has a new show in the works, where anything goes. Game2: Winter will take 30 contestants and drop them in the extremely cold Siberian wilderness for nine months, where the annual average temperature is -5C or 23F. The winner will take home a cool $1.6 million
According to The Guardian an ad for the show reads as follows:
Each contestant gives consent that they could be maimed, even killed. 2000 cameras, 900 hectares and 30 lives. Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, anything.
Nothing can get you disqualified from the show, so crimes such as rape and murder are possibilities. Not so fast though. While these crimes will not keep contestants from winning the game, they could lead to prosecution by Russian authorities.
The show will stream live 24/7 and five countries are already expressing interest in broadcasting the show, according to the creator Yevgeny Pyatkovsky. He also disclosed that 60 people have already applied as contestants, including one American.
