Is anybody watching the feeds right now?? They are playing a game to see if their answers match up with the publics.

How do we get to the feeds?!

I agree Boston Girl. I felt like they didn't get the rules of the game to begin with, which was for them to answer for themselves and not what they thought the public pick. I didn't find it that interesting it was just meh, not a very good first impression. I might check out the feeds again but unsure. I think it spoke volumes that public didn't want to continue the game when giving the choice. I don't understand how this is suppose to give us an idea of who we would like to win the money. I didn't learn anything about them and some seem to be putting on a show. I think it would have been better if they used this hour as an introduction to the players and have them talk about themselves.

They are on the abc site for the show, they are over though now.

Just saw on jokers in an article it says that they are only in the house for 5 days the other 2 they are in a hotel. Weird and seems like a waste of money.

This show is destined to fail, and I'm okay with that...

I caught the last 20 minutes or so of the feeds. I wish I knew what they were all doing? I didn't understand the reason for the whole group to answer random questions nor did I get the reason for each of the players to explain who they find as their biggest threats or competitors in the game in front of the whole house!

The feeds are free (for this group, they should be). It is too soon to really become attached to anyone and I wonder if the episodes will ever air due the lawsuits.

You can see the feeds here:
http://beta.abc.go.com/shows/the-glass-house. Then select the view/vote tab
They will be live again tomorrow at 3pm

This is really not like BB at all then. With the players leaving the house after a 5 day schedule, no one is really ever going to feel so trapped in a confined space and thus they get a 2 day break from the game?! The show is a goner.

I didn't watch the feeds but from the sounds of it, it sound like they have a lot of tweaking to do in order to get viewers to care to tune in.

Well, the feeds were much better today since we were able to get to "know" each of the GH players better with each relaying a mistake or regret in their life. The second part of the feeds had the players divided in two teams (guys vs. girls) playing "guess the sketch" or Pictionary where a member of a team drew out a sketch with a marker on a glass door. The guys won the game, but there was no prize for winners or consequence for the losing team. Whatever. It seemed as though viewers were voting in real time as to what activities the players were going to do on the feeds today.

Just my opinion,

Irish Mike with his regret on running over a bunny and then killing its babies is not going to win over viewers. Whether this was a true story or not, I found his story in poor taste and a bit sickening.

Gene (also known as Hollywood) shared a story about faking his death to end a long distance relationship....WTF!!

Jeffrey did not reveal anything...saying that he has no regrets or has made no mistakes in his life and has learned from his experiences and life and wants to move forward... Ah huh...next

Alex biggest regret IN LIFE is forming a friendship with Jacob in the house and thus being worried that they are targeted to be picked to leave the game....WOW!

I found the other three guys had more honest regrets to share (Kevin- not being able to serve in the military due to having a child at a young age), (Jacob- not signing on with a modeling agency that gave him an opportunity in NY, thus being too far from home and family and friends telling him not to do it), and (Apollo- selling himself out in life and regretting that he was not honest with himself....although this seemed vague, he is likeable)

I only liked Erika's response for the girls being that it felt honest with trying to find herself in various career moves after school, and now starting to figure out who she is.

Holly's answer was for a beauty pageant with nonsense about wanting to give back to the community and regretting being selfish about thinking about herself too much where there are people in the world that need attention for their problems and such. Even the host found her answer ridiculous.

Sorry for the long post. I found the other women (Andrea, Ashley, Joy, Robin, and Stephanie) focused on previous bad relationships and thus did not have anything truly meaningful to say or add. I liked Ashley and Joy, but Robin seems very negative as does Andrea. Stephanie seems so nervous being in the house, although she did mention that she suffers with confidence issues when it came to relationships....I think she is going to have a rough time in the house.

Overall, they made an attempt today for the viewers (we are not fans) to get to know each player one by one. Although I still prefer candid live streaming as opposed to structured.

In case anyone is interested, the following website "archived" the live streams of the previous few days of The Glass House. Part of Wednesday's live stream is missing, but it is still worth seeing to get to know the players better. I find this whole show a work in progress anyway. The only similarities I find with BB is the number of players living in a house, the brief live stream (although it is only one feed), and not much else. It is not structured like BB at all. Every activity seems to be set up so last minute.

Anyway here is the link:

Exactly BG. The host (name to be decided) pointed out that the viewers liked the players discussing their biggest regrets or mistakes in life and they should do that more often, so today it was decided by "the viewers" for the players to compete in dodgeball and to have a "sexy" yoga class, whatever the hell that is. At least we saw them competing in a physical game, but again, the winning team and losing team got nothing for their efforts or lack there of. The "backyard" is not really a backyard as it looks to be another room in the house with fake grass. The yoga teacher asked the players if there was any drama in the house and everyone pointed to Alex. (On a side note it was fun seeing the yoga teacher being "beamed up" from the floor and entering the house.) It would be fun to vote for the other player to be evicted and keep Alex in the game no matter how annoying he is to really try to make whatever any of this crap is interesting, but they need to stop structuring the feeds with activities since we have so little time to view the players live. It is funny though that many complain about BB when the HGs sleep all day on the feeds...can't really make that complaint here. Although we have not seen an episode yet of this show, I feel as though people are indifferent about it. don't know

I don't understand this show. I can't figure out the time frame of when any of the events occurred during tonight's episode such as the competition of matching facts about the players and the players nominating the second person to be put in limbo with losing team captain Jacob. Why did Jacob quit the game? And what happens to Alex? He is not on the feeds tonight and I can't believe the live feeds are going to be structured with activities such as decorating a fucking cake! eyeroll The show tonight seemed to have ended abruptly, but perhaps ABC airs their shows with weird commercial breaks. Whatever.

BB14 save us!! white flag
