Would you risk your life to win $1.6 million on a reality TV show? Well that is apparently what 30 contestants who are joining a real life Russian “Hunger Games” style TV game show called “Game 2: Winter” will be doing because the show’s producers have required them to sign a waiver that states they understand they could be raped or even murdered by other contestants.
The show will feature 15 men and 15 women from around the world who will be dropped into the Siberian wilderness in the middle of winter armed only with a knife and a drive to win the big cash. The contestants will spend nine months living only by their wits and fighting for food and shelter with bears and wolves as well as each other in one of the harshest wilderness areas in the world.
The 35-year-old producer of “Game 2: Winter,” Russian millionaire Yevgeny Pyatkovsky, insists that anything the contestants want to do is fair game and his production company will not be held responsible for anything, the UK Sun reports.
An advertisement for the new show reads: “Each contestant gives consent that they could be maimed, even killed. 2,000 cameras, 900 hectares and 30 lives. Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, anything.”
“We will refuse any claim of participants even if they were to be killed or raped,” Pyatkovsky claimed in a recent interview.
“We will have nothing to do with this,” he added. “This will be spelt out in a document to be signed by the participant before the start of the show”
Pyatkovsky did warn contestants, though, that Russian law will intervene if any of them do happen to rape or murder another contestant.
Consequently the rules of the reality show also state, “You must understand that the police will come and take you away. We are on the territory of Russia, and obey the laws of the Russian Federation.”
Pyatkovsky says the contestants will be followed by 2,0000 remote-controlled cameras and the test of survival will be live streamed over the Internet and on TV networks.
“Game 2: Winter” is scheduled to premiere in July of 2017.
