Russia is About to Unleash the Most Bats*** Insane Survival Reality Show

In recent years, the people of Russia have developed a reputation for being a little more hardcore than the rest of the world. So it follows that if Russia ever produced a survival based reality show, it would probably be a little more crazy than Survivor.

Well that hypothetical show is about to become a reality (pardon the pun). Speaking to The Siberian Times, a Russian millionaire explained the premise to an absolutely insane survival reality show that he’s making, with a pitch so lurid and over the top that it would make P.T. Barnum blush.

Quote
The show to be broadcast worldwide on the web starting in July will see 30 participants, 15 of them women, ditched on a large island in the Ob River, the seventh longest in the world, chasing a 100 million rouble ($1.7 million) prize on a nine month survival mission in winter temperatures as low as minus 50C.

Called Game2:Winter, the reality TV programme has quietly dropped a shocking rule that stated: ‘Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, anything.’

When asked if he will intervene if there is ‘physical violence, rape, a murder’, organiser Yevgeny Pyatkovsky, 35, a Novosibirsk millionaire, told The Siberian Times: ‘No we won’t. I am pretty sure there will be fights, and more. We are not scared of negative reaction if that happens either.’

He insisted it would be made clear to the international participants ahead of the show ‘that punishment will follow according to the Russian Criminal Code’. In other words, any action would be for the police or other law enforcement agencies only, not the show’s organisers.

Pyatkovsky revealed that the show would be broadcast 24 hours a day, and that the contestants will have to sign a contract that completely absolves the show if anything bad happens to them, including death.

He also revealed that the area where the show takes place will likely be infested with brown bears, and that the only weapons the contestants are allowed to have are knives. He explained that there will be a helicopter and a “ground team” to deal with emergencies, but emphasized that they may not be able to help anyone in a timely manner if a bear attacks.

Ain't that special? :whistling: The one decent thing that they might have going for them is that in Russia, brown bears are about as aggressive as black bears over here, and black bears are the ones to watch out for.

Women need to be wanted.  Men want to be needed.

Chase her.
Chase her even when she's yours.
That's the only way you'll be assured to never lose her.

What strikes me that, whatever one might think of the premise, they are free to do it. Would such a show be allowed in America at this point? I doubt it.

Unless you are 45 or older you probably can't appreciate how much freedom has already been lost in America.   Those freedoms will be near impossible to restore. We will be lucky if we can succeed in retaining what remains of our freedoms.

Well, not to put too fine a point on it, but just in the area of television, I can remember a time when Rob and Laura Petrie weren't allowed to be in the same bed together, fully clothed in pajamas, as part of their TV show "The Dick Van Dyke Show".

The word "fart", as George Carlin has eloquently stated, wasn't just disallowed, you couldn't even refer to farting on television. Just. Not. Permitted.

And now we've got Family Guy.
