Russia may be taking reality TV to another level. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Aida Rodriguez, and Amberia Allen, hosts of The
Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"A Russian reality show in which crimes such as rape and murder are “allowed” is to be launched next year, according to reports.
The TV show, called Game2: Winter, will see 30 male and female contestants seek to stay alive in wilderness populated with bears and wolves for nine months with the surviving receiving a $1.6m prize, the Siberian Times reported.
Organisers have boasted that “everything is allowed”, including rape and murder, and contestants will reportedly be required to sign a waiver acknowledging that they could be subject to such attacks.
An advert for the show reads: “Each contestant gives consent that they could be maimed, even killed. 2,000 cameras, 900 hectares and 30 lives. Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, anything.”
But would-be participants are also warned that Russian criminal procedures will still apply and that police are free to arrest anyone who commits a crime on the show."*
