The ap­pli­cant videos di­verge from dead­pan, se­ri­ous and mono­tone to the down­right kooky. The lat­ter make for some hi­lar­i­ous watch­ing. Here are five of the fun­ni­est:

5. Christo­pher (28) from the US de­cided the best way to get a place on board was to show off his sense of hu­mor… by let­ting his dog lick his face. It’s a bit con­fus­ing as we’re not re­ally sure whether it’s the dog or Christo­pher who needs a one-way trip to Mars.

4. Ju­lian (24) from Ar­gentina is “al­ready prac­tic­ing” be­ing in space and went all out with what re­sem­bles the in­side of a home­made space­ship and a match­ing out­fit.

3. Ni­cole (27) from the US is con­vinced that she is the best can­di­date be­cause she likes ar­gu­ments and eat­ing in front of the cam­era. She also has a para­keet that sits on her shoul­der, and demon­strates a unique abil­ity to not talk about any­thing par­tic­u­larly rel­e­vant.

2. John (31) from the US sees great op­por­tu­ni­ties for the porn in­dus­try in the Mars One pro­gram: space sex. He in­sight­fully points out that it is a “to­tally un­tapped mar­ket”. In­deed, along with his de­sire to be pub­lished in the Guin­ness Book of World Records as the “fat­test guy on Mars” (not sure if “World” in­cludes other plan­ets…), we think he could be the per­fect per­son to spice up Mars One’s re­al­ity TV show.

1. Efe (31) from Tur­key thinks that go­ing to Mars will be “a very cost-ef­fec­tive so­lu­tion” to his un­em­ploy­ment. In his own words, “If the sit­u­a­tion comes to … need­ing to eat a fallen com­rade, then I’m your guy!” Thank good­ness for that.
