Big Brother 14 will have some competition this summer. ABC has announced they will be debuting a brand new reality show called The Glass House on Monday, June 18. Like Big Brother 2012, The Glass House will feature a group of contestants who are locked up together inside a house and have their every move gawked at by a viewing audience while they compete for a quarter million dollars.

Unlike Big Brother 14, however, the competitors on The Glass House will have limited contact with the outside world. The viewing audience will have a chance to help their favorites with gifts of insight about the game from outside the house. Hmmm, kind of reminds me of the whole ‘sponsors’ thing in The Hunger Games

Plus, viewers will vote on aspects of the game like what the players will eat, what they will wear, where they will sleep, etc. Voters will also help determine which contestants are sent home throughout the show and which eliminated contestants will be given a second chance to earn their way back into The Glass House.

Interestingly enough, one of the executive producers on the new show is Kenny Rosen, who was a story editor on the original first season of Big Brother in the U.S. and worked as a producer here and there on Big Brother during several other seasons.

Both online and through their social networks, viewers will be encouraged to support and follow the contestants they like, their votes helping to determine which contestants are sent home and also which eliminated players will earn the chance to return to The Glass House” to compete each week.

But viewer feedback doesn’t end there! Several times a week, viewers can watch a live online feed of the players and vote to decide everything from what players wear and eat to the games they play, even where they sleep.

Viewers will also have the chance to give their favorite contestants feedback on their game from outside the house. How the contestants use that information is up to them, because in the end it’s about who plays the best social game. The most important alliance players can have is with their fans!   Voting will be available online at ABC.com at a later date.
