One of the most unbelievable TV stories of late is about a Russian reality TV show called Game2: Winter, which is produced by a man named Yevgeny Pyatkovsky.

The show has made headlines because contestants are being made to sign a waiver absolving the producer of rape and murder.

That's right, Pyatkovsky is expecting (or at least considering) that contestants on his upcoming show may be raped or even murdered on the show.

Game2: Winter will be filmed in Siberia, and will not use a crew, according to The Guardian. All contestants applying to be on the show must sign a document with the following language:

You must understand that the police will come and take you away...We are on the territory of Russia, and obey the laws of the Russian Federation.

Who is Yevgeny Pyatkovsky, creator of Game2: Winter?

Pyatkovsky is a Russian entrepreneur from Novosibirsk, Russia (east of Moscow), according to Russia Beyond the Headlines. He is a young entrepreneur who made a large amount of money developing software for Android phones.

His well known app is named "Anticollector" and is used to block calls from debt collectors. At one point, Google removed the app from the Google Play app store, but he was able to get it reactivated.

Pyatkovsky made his fortune only recently, selling his app to hundreds of thousands of people across the world.

He got into the debt collection industry because people he knew were harassed by debt collectors for a debt that they didn't owe. One of those people was a 10 year old girl.

Although his net worth is unknown, Pyatkovsky is offering $1.6 million dollars to the winner of his reality show.

Since he became wealthy, he has been involved in many strange projects, including what he called "a kindergarten for adults." The "kindergarten" allows adults to live like children, including taking a nap, drawing, and singing.
