We've seen some messed up stuff in the past but this really takes the cake. Last year it was announced there was going to be a Russian game show that is pretty much a real life version of the Hunger Games. There was speculation on whether it was an actual thing or if it was a hoax. We can't believe it but it seems to be a happening thing. 

The aim of the game is to survive the extreme winter conditions in Siberia for nine months and if you do, you and the remaining survivors split the grand prize of 1.7 million dollars. The 30 contestants are encouraged to do whatever it takes including murder in order to get a larger share of the 1.7 million. We are a little bit confused because everything is allowed including murder... but the contestants have been warned if they commit a crime they will get arrested for it. 

Viewers are able to donate money to the contestants which then allows them to buy weapons to help them survive.

It's set to kick off on the 29th of June and go through until the 1st of April 2018.

If you don't believe it's a happening thing then take a look for yourself
