Watch celebronauts search for a missing robot dog in this exclusive 'Stars on Mars' clip (video)

Even on Mars, it must be asked: Who let the dog out?

Celebronauts on Fox's "Survivor"-ish reality TV series, "Stars on Mars," will all be asking the proverbial question when this week's episode arrives tonight, and we've got an exclusive clip to share as spacesuit-wearing contestants Porsha Williams Guobadia, Ariel Winter and Adam Rippon stumble around in the inky darkness and attempt to recover a runaway robotic RADDOG before time runs out. 

With less than a minute on the clock to complete this critical task, will these three celebronauts be successful in locating the missing cyber-pooch or fail in the twisting caverns and have to return to the simulated habitat without their loyal machine mascot?

As the habitat's crew numbers slowly dwindle down before the series finale strikes on Aug. 28, this tenth episode features lots of running through claustrophobic opal-mining caves in the simulated Mars landscape of the remote Australian town of Coober Pedy and a search and rescue mission to find a cyberdog gone missing.
