About the Show

Paradise Or Bust follows the dream of two 26-year-olds, Ben Keene and Mark Bowness. With no experience and little money, they've leased a paradise island in Fiji, started a website and hope that up to 5,000 strangers from around the world will join their website community, or "tribe", and help them build an eco-tourist village. It is the biggest challenge of their lives. The reality of their dream however, is no toilet, no water, no shelter, no broadband connection, financial crises and relationships that are tested to the limit. This remarkable series follows the first year in the life of and tells the personal journeys, business challenges and logistical complexities of creating an eco-village on a deserted island. After battling fires, insect infestations, severe water shortages and living through a coup d'état, the boys face their greatest test – to not destroy the very beauty they went there to find. A year on, have they found paradise – or hell on Earth?
