Viewers from all round the world have complete access - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - as twelve very different contestants confront their greatest fears, in expectation of a winning payoff of two million dollars. But then someone very sinister steals the show, when a mysterious voice called CONTROL explains that each participant is harbouring a lethal virus, fatal within twenty-four hours without a daily vaccine. Each day one of the contestants will not receive this vaccine . and it's up to the viewing public to decide which one of them to 'evict'.
What will the doomed players do in their desperation to win viewer support? Which of them will win through to become the sole survivor? And who is the secret mastermind calling himself CONTROL?
