Contestants sign waiver acknowledging they may not survive nine-month Siberian wilderness challenge, and if crimes are committed, they will be arrested

A new Russian reality show where crimes are “allowed” will begin next year.

Game2: Winter will strand 30 contestants in the -40F (-40C) Siberian wilderness for nine months with the surviving winner receiving a $1.6m prize. It will stream 24/7 online.
“Each contestant gives consent that they could be maimed, even killed,” reads an advert. “2000 cameras, 900 hectares and 30 lives. Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, anything.”

Contestants will each sign a waiver acknowledging that they might be raped or killed but the rules also state that police are free to arrest anyone who commits a crime on the show. “You must understand that the police will come and take you away,” the rules state. “We are on the territory of Russia, and obey the laws of the Russian Federation.”

Contestants will be placed in a landscape where bears and wolves are likely to be living. According to the Siberian Times, knives will be allowed yet guns are forbidden. The show is the brainchild of entrepreneur Yevgeny Pyatkovsky who says he “will refuse any claim of participants even if they were to be killed or raped”.

There won’t be a crew but rather 2,000 cameras dotted around the area. Each contestant will also have their own personal recording device. Willing participants need to be 18 and “mentally sane” to compete.

“The show promises to be international,” Pyatkovsky said. “Five countries have already expressed the desire to broadcast it for their audiences.”

He claims that 60 people have already applied, including one American.

This article was amended on 16 December 2016 to correct a temperature conversion.

Or Hunger Games?

Because it is always entertaining to see children fight to the death.

Replace 'children' with convicts or voluntary contestants and it might be a viable plan

If this is played right, this could be the the best show ever, with the highest number of viewers.

Back in the '70's I was telling my friends that in our lifetime, gladiatorial death matches would be seen again.  I still think they're on the way.

Well if you are convicted of a crime, your punishment will probably be having to stay there for the duration of confinement.

This makes no sense.

"You're allowed to but you will still get arrested".

What's the difference.

So you sign something that it is OK, but really not. All this is simply life with cameras around...

No way the participants to be dumped in northern parts of Siberia where the temps really reach -40 and below. It's f@ckin frozen tundra where bigger mammals is a arctic foxes. The human being will survive not more than few hours.

Don't we all?

Actually though, not anywhere near as serious as murder, though many say otherwise...

This. Even in northern MN, not many would survive. The ones that could would likely kill themselves or quit (if the ability to quit)
