Images have surfaced of Vladimir Putin on Russia’s version of the popular reality TV show.
Putin can be seen here on the left chasing what appears to be a fellow contestant. It’s one of the few images of the show that has leaked through the iron curtain. Fun fact: in Russia they use the phrase “iron curtain” in the same way we use the beef equivalent.
Putin is rumored to have completed several bush-tucker challenges (or as they’re called in Russia, “nursery rhymes”) including swimming through a pit of Russian warter-spiders, eating seven camel eyeballs, and even smearing his nether-regions in jam while sitting open-legged in a raccoon’s nest. Unfortunately, however, he was unable to complete the challenge where he has to eat a banana, on grounds that the fruit is “too phallic”.
