BERLIN (Reuters) - Almost two weeks ago, 12 young Russians arrived in Berlin, without money, food or any idea where they were. In under three months, one will have won $1,000 dollars a month for the rest of his or her life.

The six men and six women aged between 20 and 28 are competing for the prize in a new Russian TV show called "Golod" or "Hunger" where contestants are deposited in a container in an unknown city and forced to find their own food and money.

After the first three weeks, the audience votes to eliminate one person every week until just the winner remains, having in the words of the show's website -- www.golodtnt.ru -- survived for one hundred days without food or money.

Interesting. I'd kinda like to see this one. Anybody know how to get hold of a tape?
