THE VIEWERS' VOTES HAVE BEEN COUNTED,
WHO WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM ABC'S "THE GLASS HOUSE"?
The Remaining Players Compete in a Sky-High Challenge for
Viewer Selected Rewards or Punishments
Live Online Streaming Immediately Following Monday Night's Episode
"Episode 102" - Will TV's super villain Alex return to "The Glass House" or was he sent packing for good? The viewers have voted! After the first elimination, the remaining players compete in a game of "Ruffle Your Tail Feathers," where contestants must use coordination and flight to garner either rewards or punishments, voted on and selected by the viewers, based on their success within the challenge, on "The Glass House," MONDAY, JUNE 25 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET), on The ABC Television Network.
"The Glass House" takes interactive storytelling to the next level, with fans at ABC.com/GlassHouse directing the players' actions in the house both online and on-air. Every week, viewers are able to view an additional four-hour live stream from inside the house from 11:00 p.m.-3:00 a.m., ET and then again during the one-hour blocks from 3:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m., ET on Tuesdays- Thursdays. In addition to the live polling, daily polls will pose larger strategic questions that impact what the players may do during the next on-air episode, and a Limbo Vote will determine which player can be saved from elimination. In addition, viewers will have the opportunity to give all of the player's feedback on their game from outside the house. How the players use that information is up to them, but in the end, this is about who plays the best social game, so the most important alliances players can have are with their fans.
"The Glass House" is executive-produced by Kenny Rosen ("Hell's Kitchen").
"The Glass House" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with stereo sound. This program carries a TV-14,L parental guideline.

DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, June 2012) "The Glass House," the exciting and interactive real-time reality competition where viewers are in charge of the game, proudly welcomes 14 contestants who will live and compete for a quarter of a million dollars in a totally wired, state-of-the-art house. Not only will they be playing against each other, they will also be playing to win over the viewing audience each week, as contestants are directed by the fans who control every move they make throughout the competition. "The Glass House" premieres MONDAY, JUNE 18 (10:02-11:00 p.m., ET) on The ABC Television Network. In "The Glass House," viewers will be encouraged to follow and support the contestants they like, with their votes - via online and social media avenues - 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 they wear and eat to the games they play, even where they sleep. In addition viewers will have the opportunity to give their favorite players feedback on their game from outside the house. How the contestants use that information is up to them, because in the end this is about who plays the best social game, so the most important alliances players can have are with their fans.
