Russia, Siberia – Did you like the movie? We sure you did in the warmth of your cozy little home. Just in case you have the courage to participate in real Hunger Games, well you are lucky, Siberians just announced a 9-month long survival test in the remote area of Taiga. You will be welcomed there by a bunch of wild bear and wolf packs and pleasant temperature of -40°C. If that isn’t enough for you they said anything is allowed in the show, including: rape, murder, alcoholism, fighting for food etc.
Also the show founder said they cannot be held responsible for anything that happens between the contestants in the show as they need at least half an hour to send rescue helicopters to the area.
Interesting fact is that Russian Spetznaz has similar training in Siberia, so you will live through their survival training too.
‘There will be no filming crew: the whole area will be dotted with cameras and each participant will be carrying a portable camera with 7-hour life rechargeable battery.’ – reported The Siberian Times
Everybody is “welcome to the show” they said, also participants from any world country will be allowed to participate, and they will broadcast the show in several languages. This live broadcast will be possible because of 2,000 cameras that will be scattered around the reserve of 900 hectares.
‘This will be a very entertaining and educational project,’ promised Pyatkovsky.
This Gulag games…sorry, Hunger Games contest is actually called ‘Game2: Winter’ that is a child of Novosibirsk entrepreneur Yevgeny Pyatkovsky, who said: ‘We will refuse any claim of participants even if they were to be killed or raped.
