'The Glass House' to premiere June 18th on ABC
The ABC Television Network is not one to sit back and lose their viewing audience during the summer to their Network rivals CBS. During the summer months the television programming is often hit or miss but there is always one show that consistently breaks the viewer ratings, that show is CBS’s Big Brother Reality TV Show!
In an attempt to tape into America’s love of Reality TV shows, ABC has scheduled the launch of their very own reality TV show that has striking similarities to CBS’s Big Brother series. ABC announced that on June 18th, 2012 their Reality TV show “The Glass House” will première.
The show will feature 14 contestants that will be hand-picked by the shows producers, where they will live in a fully wired house. They will compete to be the last person standing to win the $250,000 grand prize. The twist of this new show is that the audience will have an opportunity to get fully involved in the game by voting on which contestants to send home, and which lucky contestants get a second chance to return to the game. The viewers will be able to vote through ABC’s social media avenues such as Facebook and Twitter. ABC is trying to engage the audience by getting them to vote on what the contestants wear, eat, what games they play, and where they sleep.

|Only 10 episodes? I guess it's a trial run maybe :shrug:|
|Kenny||May 18 2012, 12:28 AM Post #4|
Yeah, that's kind of disappointing. I don't think 10 episodes means it will be a short season though. One episode a week for 10 weeks gives the show a 2 1/2 month long run -- about the same as Big Brother. There just won't be 3 episodes a week and we won't get to watch the feeds very often.

The cast has been released. http://beta.abc.go.com/shows/the-glass-house/bios
Pretty bland type of cast, however, Erica & Robin are hilarious.

Make EJ/Abby happen, DAYS!
LOL I love how Erica rants about how she hates people who say "you either love me or you hate me", and then the next clip Gene's just like "you either hate me or you love me". Lol! I can't wait to see those two interact!
ETA: Erica's going to hate half of the house, hahaha!

||So, umm what happened to the Melissa chick? Why was she replaced?|
|Lucky||Jun 10 2012, 09:06 PM Post #19|
||I'm going to check this show out. Last season was my first one watching Big Brother and I really liked it (was rooting for Danielle). This seems pretty cool as well.|
|Kenny||Jun 11 2012, 09:06 PM Post #20|
Holy shit. Have you guys seen what the house looks like?!
Spoiler: click to toggle
Hopefully if this show is a success it'll light a fire under Grodner's ass and she'll actually put some effort into Big Brother. The house decor alone blows BB out of the water.
