There are a few other competitions the House Guest compete for. They also have food competitions to see what kind of food the will get that week. They also compete to see if they will be a Have or Have not for the week. Meaning if they are a Have, the can go about there day with the food they win the the food competitions and sleep in normal beds. If they end up as a Have Not, they are stuck with what is called slop, a meal that is made of oats but is like a paste, and have to sleep in the Have Not room, a room with hard beds and sometimes they will have the lights on 24/7, for a week. Luxury competitions allow the House Guest to win prizes like money, a call from home, PoV, trips, cars, or even to skip a week of being a Have Not.
When the first few get voted out they have to go home, but after the first set of few players go home the rest go to the Jury House. Once in the Jury House, the players get to do and eat what they want. They are still cut off from the world and whats going on in the Big Brother House. At the end of the show they come back on to vote for who they think should win Big Brother out of the final two players.
When the players are told what the viewers voted for, a female robotic voiced named FaRi speaks to the house. FaRi also gives the players answers the players ask the viewers in privet. She will give the game of one of the players and just the answer, like yes or no. The other players get to hear the answer but have no clue what the question is.
One unique thing the viewers get to vote on is on what two players have to stay in the same room together. There are three bedrooms in the house, the basic bedroom where everyone sleeps, the friend's room, and the enemies room. The viewers can put the two players that get along or think should get along with in the friend's room and force the two players that don't get along at all in the same room where they have to sleep together in the same bed. Putting the players in the enemies room is for the obvious reason to start a fight or adding more drama. On the other hand, putting the players in the friend's room could let the other players in the game know to look out for a secret alliance.
Having watched the first four episodes of The Glass House I would have to say the show is okay, but no Big Brother. The fact that the viewers get to do all the voting really takes away the from the players of The Glass House to use strategy. They know every little plot or back stab they plan on doing. So even if they want to throw a player under the bus to try to get them eliminated from the house, as long as the viewers don't vote that player out, it would be all for not. And since the players go to limbo and away from the rest of the house they don't have to campaign to stay in.
In Big Brother this is a big part of the game. Since the rest of the rest of the house is going to vote out one of the nominate, the nominee have a chance to fight and make deals to stay. Those deals can turn the game around and also change the power in the house. There is more competitions and chances to stay in the house.
Also you get more from the House Guest in Big Brother from there diary room. The House Guest can go there and give there feeling. The only time the players from The Glass House get a way is to ask there question. And in The Glass House they skip around a lot and don't show everything. They will show a quick clip of how a fight started and then show the players trying to solve the problem. In Big Brother they would show how the fight started, the fight as it happened, and then if they were able to fix the problem.
In Big Brother they have less personally items, where as in The Glass House they have pictures from home. Also in Big Brother you must follow the rules or there will be a plenty like an extra vote if put on the chopping block or a week of slop. In the fourth episode of The Glass House two of the players where put in the enemy room, one female player who is married and a male player. The female player said since she is married she will not lay with another man in the bed so she would sleep on the couch or floor. The producers seemed to let her get away with this. Now I respect if that how she feels since she is married, but if that is part of the game then she should have to do it or face a consequence.
While I am planning to finish the first season of The Glass House, I doubt that I would watch next season, if they even get one. Big Brother is, in my opinion, a way better show because of how much more strategy and how there is more consequences there are. And While there are things that are different between the two shows, I do see a lot of thing that were ripped off from Big Brother. What do you think?
