Millionaires to hunt each other in Hunger Games-style arena for £100,000 jackpot

Millionaires to hunt each other in Hunger Games-style arena for £100,000 jackpot – but no one will die

  • Entrants will compete for three days with Airsoft guns and body armour 
  • The winner at the end of the competition will receieve £100,000 prize money 
  • The organisers are currently looking for a designer to create their arena 

A group of eccentric millionaires are planning on hosting a Hunger Games-style challenge where the winner receives £100,000 – it has been revealed.

In an advert posted on HushHush.com, a website described as ‘Amazon for millionaires’, the event’s organisers announced they are looking for a designer for their ‘battle royale’ arena. 

It is unclear where the event will take place although organisers are looking to stage it on a private island somewhere in the world. 

The listing states that competitors will be provided with Airsoft guns which fire plastic pellets, ammunition and touch-sensitive body armour, and will camp overnight, following a gruelling 12 hours of competition for three days in a row. 

At the end of the ordeal, the winner will walk away with a whopping £100,000 in prize money.

The idea is similar to the Hollywood blockbuster The Hunger Games, in which competitors are forced to enter an arena and fight in a last person standing-style contest. 

According to the listing, the designer will be paid £1,500-per-day to construct the arena. 

The advert states: ‘We’re looking for someone who can help design the arena for a 100-person battle royale inspired event.

‘With a £1,500 day rate and an expected six-week project duration, we’re expecting the competition to be fierce for the £45,000 contract!’

Aaron Harpin, HushHush.com founder, said: ‘Battle royale games have become incredibly popular over the last few years ago and our customer is a huge fan who wants to make the game a reality in the safest way possible.

‘If the championship is a success this year, it’s something he wants to make an annual event moving forward, which is very exciting!’

‘If you’re a fan of last-person-standing movies and games, it’ll be a great opportunity to have a once in a lifetime experience and earn a significant amount of money.

‘However, to get there, our concierge team needs some help to make it a reality. The first thing we need is a talented gamemaker to help us make the event as realistic as possible.’
