Forever Eden | 2003
Unscripted reality series in which several single men and women leave behind their current lives, including jobs, family, and friends, for a lengthy period of several years to be isolated at a luxurious island resort paradise. Each contestant will begin a new life in which newfound friendships, romances, and sometimes, enemies are made. Contestants earn money by staying on the island for as long as possible, though each has the option of vacating the resort at any point. In doing so, however, he or she loses any accumulated money. Along the way, new contestants may replace old contestants at different intervals, and surprise guests, some of which may be former contestants or relatives of longstanding contestants, will arrive unexpectedly.
