Russia to host Hunger Game-ish TV show where murder is allowed


New television survival show called “Game 2: Winter” is set to roll out soon where 30 contestants must survive in a bear and wolf infested Siberian ‘Taiga’ jungle during winter for USD 1.6 Million.

To win the game, the contestant needs to either survive for a 9-month period or find their way out from the jungle back to civilisation.

Other than battling the average 40 degree Celsius temperature, wild life and insects, participants might also need to battle among themselves as according to the organisers any crime such as killing, rape and murder is allowed on the show.


"This was according to Siberian times, which reported:-

“The TV show, called “Game2: Winter”, will see 30 male and female contestants seek to stay alive in wilderness populated with bears and wolves for nine months with the surviving receiving a $1.6m prize”.

But according to the organiser, a Russian entrepreneur named Yevgeny Pyatkovsky, the participants are still confined within the laws of Russian federation and hence any crime on the show would be prosecuted.

Yes, we too have not figured out on how it is considered ‘allowed’ when you will still be arrested if you commit a crime during the show.
Siberian times also reported that contestants will be given a knife but not a gun - because battling bear and wolf with knives are easier, duh! - And will be given survival training from Russia's elite former military operatives to help them cope with the cold weather.
Bet this guy signed up already !
Well, as crazy as it seems, Yevgeny also told the news site that “60 people have already applied, including one American”.

To add on to its similarities with the Jennifer Lawrence starrer, viewers can ‘gift’ participants to aid them during the show.

The show will be streaming online for 24/7 and contestant would not be accompanied by any filming crew but the whole area will be dotted with cameras and each participant will be carrying a portable camera of their own.

One of the most isolated places in the world, Taiga.
However, -probably the only sane thing in the show- those who get into danger or cannot face the gruelling conditions can use a 'panic button' with a satellite connection and they will be safely escorted.

Now with all this being said, the qualification to join this show is very simple, you have to be at least 18 and mentally sane.

So, if you feel you want to embrace your inner Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mallark, you can definitely head on HERE to register yourself as participant.

May the odds be in your favour!
