Attention, Stars on Mars fans, four new crew members have crash-landed on Mars and are joining our favorite celebronauts inside the habitat. The hit FOX reality series follows a group of celebrities inside a controlled simulation to see who can survive on Mars. In each episode, one crew member has been deemed "not mission critical" by the group and has been sent back to Earth.
In Episode 5, the OG crew finds out that a spacecraft carrying four crew members and a resupply of food has landed on Mars. The group is tasked with retrieving their fellow bunkmates and a slew of food items. So, who is joining the crew inside the hab? Plus, how will the original group deal with newcomers entering into the mix?
