ABC going to be releasing their spin off of the popular CBS Big Brother reality TV series this summer. The TV network has hired a former CBS Big Brother Producer to aid in producing the new reality series called “The Glass House” which is set to air its premiere episode on June 18th at 10 PM EST, and conclude with a finale on August 20th. The production is set to start near the end of May and will feature 14 individuals that will live and compete against each other for the grand prize of $250,000. The twist of the new reality series will be that the viewing public will have an integral role in the outcome of the show by voting online and through the networks social media (Twitter & Facebook). The viewing public will be able to follow the contestants and vote on who is sent home, in addition to deciding which contestants will return to “The Glass House”.
Big Brother News stories from the month that have slipped through the OBB cracks. Casting is still cruising along just another couple weeks to go. No Call back spoilers have leaked, CBS puts strict rules down prohibiting people from talking about callbacks on social media, blogs etc etc. If you want to get disqualified then tweet you got a casting callback. Official start date has been released for this coming season, July 12th is just around the corner.
Robyn Kass tweeted when asked about the semi finalist.
“Nope, we have NOT finished our semi finalist rounds yet!! #BB14”
There is still a load of casting calls and you can still submit your Big Brother 14 application online.
It’s official the Big Brother 14 premiere date and time has been set. July 12th, 9:00 to 10:00pm, Expect the live feeds to be turned on shortly after the first live show airs. CBS did not give us any information about the format of this season nor did we find out about any twists. Keep in mind that casting is still underway for this season. As we found out last year, CBS production may change the show at moments notice so any unconfirmed rumors must be taken with a grain of salt.

Attached below is the Legal contract you must sign if you are one of the lucky Big Brother 14 Cast members. It’s a long document 36 pages in all, if you take the time to read it in full you will realize that CBS Production has pretty much complete control. It’s their show so this is understandable.
Here are some tidbits I took out of the contract
Production can change the rules at any time
I’m surprised this isn’t abused more by CBS
I understand that my failure or refusal to comply with the Series Rules (as they may be changed, modified or amended by Producer in its sole discretion from time to time with or without prior notice to me) in any respect or to any degree may result in (subject to Producer’s sole discretion) my immediate elimination from the Series and the forfeiture of any and all prizes, stipends or other monies even if already rewarded, granted, earned or received by me.
