Big Brother on Mars
Apparently not a hoax.
The Mars One online statement explains that by using the $6bn (4.7bn euros; £3.8bn) generated through the biggest-ever television spectacle, the team will have enough knowledge and resources to set up a permanent colony on Mars.
Basically this means turning the whole recruitment process into a reality TV show, following the contestants on their seven-month journey into space and finally capturing their Red Planet experiences on camera and beaming them back to audiences on Earth.
Auditions begin next year for a decade of training, people. Who wants to get their arse to Mars?

Let's do a celebrity BB on mars event.
(Politicians are too easy, and I'm not sure Mars is big enough, although the hot hair produced might be good for Terra-forming purposes...)
