But, as they make their way across tough and hostile terrain they’ll be met with tantalising and enticing temptations, each with an exorbitant price tag, the cost of which is removed from their shared prize pot. The ultimate test of willpower and self-restraint, this noisy and provocative social experiment promises to reveal what we truly value.
