    I love how they say, they can rape and murder (for the TV show) but are still subject to the law of the land. Considering you have to pay £130K to take part, I can't imagine many people would be interested in spending 9 months in Siberia...

    This just sounds wrong! Who in their right mind would come up with a show like this? I think this will surpass "Naked and Afraid" and "Survivor." Rape and murder do not appeal to me. I will not be watching the show.

    This just goes to show you that Russia is not as advanced as you would hope. Letting people kill each other or rape is just out of mental range even for them. Spending a year in Siberia with -40-degree temps is just ridiculous. I don't agree with this at all.

    Apparently hundreds applied but the organiser said it was a stunt and never was actually going to go ahead. I'm still surprised anyone applied!

    Way to go, humans.

    When I read the first post, I really wanted it to be a fake news. I'm glad that is the case, but I don't know what to say about the organizer and applicants. This is just wrong on so many levels. Worst, they may inspire some dangerous people to actually bring the ideas to life and cause casualties.

    I agree North. I am glad it was a stunt but the ideas placed in some peoples minds may actually put others in danger. I hope no one follows through with this concept.
