Dutch funding colony on Mars by making it into a reality TV show
 
I thought this was insane when i heard about it on a podcast the other day. 2023 is the year they plan to accomplish this. For those who haven't heard, i'll post some links to articles about the whole thing.

The 4 people sent should be supermodels and create a whole planet of perfectly crafted human beings

Hahaha, i think you're onto something. If only supermodels were smart too. (joking)

I'd totally watch this show though. Can't tell if the projected show would follow the lives of everyone involved leading up to the launch or is proposed to start after they land?

I was kinda guessing that it would start after they land because...they might not make it unfortunately. Also, the idea to make it a reality TV show is pretty genius. Who wouldn't want to watch that shit? I feel like it could air in every country and garner plenty of interest.

Can we just not send all of the worst reality tv 'stars' to Mars and then there be an 'accident' which prevents them coming back.

wait... wait... wouldn't that mean they would have to send a whole camera crew to Mars too, that would be more than the planned 4 people. Now I'm confused

Sure would be, can't think of a better way to get rid of them.

it is about time for us humans to completely fuck up another planet, isnt it?

Honestly, I think we're a bit behind. We should be on planet four or five by now.

Yeah you're probably right, unless there's a way where they can give each of them a camera and do it POV style. That would be crazy.
