There are a lot of reality series on television worldwide, but none push the limit of contestant’s humanity like the upcoming Russian reality survival series ‘Game2: Winter’.
Thirty men and women will be dropped in the Siberian wilderness, filled with wild animals like bears, where temperatures drop to -40 degrees Celsius, for nine months with the hopes of winning the $1.6 million prize. The reason the series is so controversial, the show has no rules and allows for contestants to be beaten, raped or murdered, all for ratings. Each contestant signs a legal consent form sacrificing their rights.
Each contestant gives consent that they could be maimed, even killed. 2000 cameras, 900 hectares and 30 lives, Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, everything.
The ‘Game2’, created by entrepreneur Yevgeny Pyatkovsky, will premiere worldwide on July 1, 2017 and will run through April 1, 2018. Hopefully, we won’t actually witness anyone murdered or raped.
