They really like it rough in Russia
An Eccentric Millionaire
While most Russians live pretty poor lives, others lead very rich lives. Russian millionaires and billionaires are known to throw their vast wealth around like its nothing. So 35-year-old millionaire Yevgeny Pyatkovsky wanted to stand out from the rest. He didn’t want to help people, though.
A Terrifying Idea
Well, he did want to help out his country mates in a sense. But they had to prove that they really, really wanted it. So he created a game show of sorts in which people can win some cash. But they have to go through some terrible things to get it. No word games and puzzles here!
In July 2017, 30 men and women will be dropped off in the Siberian wilderness together which doesn’t sound too much different than shows like Survivor just yet. There won’t be a camera crew, but there will be cameras hidden in the trees live streaming 24/7. Each person has a panic button that will tell helicopters to rescue them.
So where does the game part come in? All they have to do is survive the elements for a few months. They also have to survive each other…
If you ever find yourself in Mother Russia, just make sure to stay away from appearing on game shows like THIS one, unless you like getting tortured.
