The show takes place in Siberia during the harsh winter weather. Contestants will try to survive for nine months in a remote Siberian forest. The winner will receive 1.7 million in prize money.
“Each contestant gives consent that they could be maimed, even killed,” the show claims. “2000 cameras, 900 hectares and 30 lives. Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, anything.”
This doesn’t mean you can just get away with committing the crimes. “You must understand that the police will come and take you away,” the rules state. “We are on the territory of Russia, and obey the laws of the Russian Federation.”
Meet some of the contestants.
