Can the Dutch do reality TV in space?

A Dutch entrepreneur is on a mission to send a bold gang of explorers - aka reality show contestants - to Mars. It's either one of the biggest hoaxes in history conjured up by a group of richly deluded young fantasists or a brave attempt to challenge the boundaries of space travel and beat Nasa and co at their own game. The Mars One online statement explains that by using the $6bn generated through the biggest-ever television spectacle, the team will have enough knowledge and resources to set up a permanent colony on Mars.
