Reality TV... Russian Style

Quote:
Russian producers are planning the so-far-ultimate survivors' show--in the Siberian wilderness for nine months (temperatures as low as -40F), with 30 contestants selected after signing liability waivers that protect the show even if someone is raped or murdered. (Police may come arrest the perpetrators, but the producers are not responsible for intervening.)

The show ("Game2: Winter") will be telecast live, around the clock, beginning July 2017 via 2,000 cameras placed in a large area of bears and treacherous forest. Producers told Siberian Times in December that 60 prospects had already signed up for the last-person-standing prize: the equivalent of $1.6 million (only requirements: be 18 and "sane").

(Bonus: The production company's advertising lists the "dangerous" behaviors they allow, including "fighting," "murder," "rape," "smoking.")

I love how they equate smoking with fighting, rape and murder.

I don't think they were quite ready for so much freedom all at once.

$1.6 million US cancels a lot of doubt and questions. Bet the winner becomes one Putin's personal entourage.

Could someone please tweet that Putin thinks Trump is too wussy to play?
