I'll be honest, i've seen snippets of it a few times. personally I think the production company preyed on vulnerable people with the promise of their '15 minutes of fame' couple with a night or 2 in a hotel with all expenses paid. Is there room/a need for a format like it? I'm not sure...

The link to the theme is the radioactive glow in the dark part of the compass that is slowly decaying (remember radioactive half-life from school?)
And here are the others:
