Could This Be True?

Evel Dick tweeted out this picture, saying this was The Glass House for the upcoming ABC knock-off show.

Is Evel Dick yanking our chains?

First of all, if this is The Glass House, it would be a prototype, since I am 99.9% sure that ABC wouldn't be building it in the middle of a frozen forest.  And as we all know, the only snow in LA isn't on the ground.

A see-thru house would certainly be interesting, but I would think that it would pose some significant production challenges.  How could they film from inside?  Or even outside, without showing themselves in the reflection?

More importantly, where is the bathroom?   And the pool?

I don't think this is the actual house, but it looks like some sort of art installation for New York tourists.  You know, where people could walk by it in Times Square and gawk for a few minutes.

I went into Manhattan  years ago to see David Blaine when he was "frozen" in ice under the street.  He was looking at the crowd and rolling his eyes around at us.  ***whatever***  There was a lot of speculation that we were watching his image projected on the ice.  But hey it was something to see.  There were a lot of wanna bees down there trying to get attention for themselves.

For example, the Howard Stern Show staff visited with a camera crew and I think Stuttering John tried to pee on the ice before security stepped in to nip it in the bud.

If ABC installs The Glass House somewhere in Manhattan where tourists can visit, that might be interesting.  Imagine the uproar when people tweet out their own photos of the house guests pooping or having sex.  And imagine the public indignation when the producers block the view with a curtain so the crowd doesn't see what they don't want us to see.

It certainly would be a spectacle.  But it wouldn't be Big Brother.
