ABC Names the 14 Contestants for New Reality Competition Series, "The Glass House"
The Alphabet's latest summer entry rolls out Monday, June 18 at 10:00/9:00c.

[via press release from ABC]

FOURTEEN DYNAMIC AND COMPETITIVE INDIVIDUALS MOVE INTO "THE GLASS HOUSE"

Exciting New Competition Series -- Where Fans Vote and Decide Everything -- Premieres Monday, June 18 on ABC

Players Will Live Together and Compete for $250,000

"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.

The 14 contestants (and their hometowns) are:

Alex, bail bondsman (age 25) - Dallas, TX
Andrea, bookkeeper (age 31) - Valencia, CA
Apollo, poet/author (age 28) - Phoenix, AZ
Ashley, paralegal (age 30) - New Orleans, LA
Erica, cocktail waitress (age 27) - Denver, CO
Gene, stuntman (age 28) - Chicago, IL
Jacob, cook (age 28) - Coos Bay, OR
Jeffrey, receptionist (age 35) - Brooklyn, NY
Joy, nurse (age 27) - Fredericksburg, VA
Kevin, police sergeant (age 33) - Toledo, OH
Melissa, freelance journalist (age 31) - Chicago, IL
Mike, bar mitzvah DJ (age 48) - Pembroke, MA
Robin, blogger (age 43) - Washington, DC
Stephanie, scientist (age 32) - Boston, MA

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.

Beginning Saturday, June 9, "The Glass House" website on abc.com will be live for early voting on various aspects of the house and game prior to the contestants' moving in on June 11. The site will also feature bonus non-broadcast scenes that will enhance the viewing experience.

"The Glass House" is executive-produced by Kenny Rosen ("Hell's Kitchen" and "Big Brother"). It is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with 5.1 channel surround sound. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to airdate.
