In Scotland, a reality show sent 23 men and women into the wilderness for a year, only to have them all return to civilization and learn that their show was canceled.
The show – called Eden – was promoted as a social experiment. These people were cut off from any contact from the outside world and had to decide on their own rules and laws, build their own shelter, grow their own food, and raise their own livestock.
But as the ratings on the show slipped, the network pulled the plug on the show. One small problem – they didn’t bother to tell the remaining contestants, who endured boredom and infighting, and were reduced at one point to eating chicken feed. (Business Insider)
