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

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
