Art imitates anarchy:
The show’s primary objective is to stay alive until the first of April 2018. To that end, the show’s producers have instituted a simple rule: Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, anything.Don't go with them if you want to live...
Moreover, the show’s producers insist that their cameramen and production people will not try to stop any evil plot the competitors attempt to carry out. Yevgeny Pyatkovsy, one of the show’s organizers, addressed the issue of whether or not the production staff could play an active role in the game.
“No we won’t,” Pyatkovsky told the Siberian Times. “I am pretty sure there will be fights, and more. We are not scared of negative reaction if that happens, either … This is the raw Siberian taiga: Anything can happen, and we might not be on time to solve an emergency.”
According to the New York Post, “During the game, players must forage and store their own food in order to survive the winter months. Once the cold weather hits, they will need to learn to ice-fish through holes cut in local lakes and ponds.
“The contestants will be made up of 15 men and 15 women, from various parts of the world. They will only be armed with knives as they brave freezing temperatures, bears and other dangers associated with Siberia.”
