MY FAVORITE REALITY SHOW SINCE THE RW/RR CHALLENGES IS ENDING IN TWO EPISODES AND I JUST CAN’T CONTROL MY EMOTIONS SO I MUST COME TO TUMBLR AND GET THEM OUT.
Okay, so The Glass House has literally been my life this summer. I feel like I’ve almost lived in the house this past month. The casting for this show has been on point.
Erica Russell has basically been the perfect mix of Coral Smith and Katie Doyle from the Real World/Road Rules Challenges on MTV. The amount of wit she has astounds me every time I watch her. The way that she sings everything she does throughout the day is so hilarious to me and I love it. I basically want to go get drunk with her ASAP.
Jeffrey Marx has one of the most contagious laughs I have ever heard and his humor gives me life. I will carry his twisted, yet wonderful, version of “Would You Rather?” around with me for the rest of life. He has so many catch phrases and funny quirks that make it hard not to like him. And I want to go get drunk with him too. Erica, Jeffrey, and I will be besties. You better believe it.
Kevin Braun is Anderson Cooper’s long lost little silver fox brother. His smile is pretty fantastic and the way he dances and doesn’t care what people think about him is a quality of his that I envy. Oh, and his Ohioan accent (!!!).
The amount of crazies that this game has produced (Primetime 99 Alex Stein, Aunt Robin, and Gene’s pathological lying) only makes the casting even better.
All in all, Erica and Jeffrey have made the show what it is and I can only hope that one of them wins the money. I will definitely have a tough decision to make if I have to decide between the two of them.
The final two episodes are going to be so incredibly exciting and nerve wracking. Next week is going to be the final week of the live feeds and I will probably be a mess by next Thursday. If I’m not a mess by then, I will be a mess on August 20th when the final episode airs. I know I will be busy with school, but not having the live feeds to watch is completely inconceivable to me. What is comforting to know, is that I am a part of The Glass House forever because my Tout and one of my tweets have been shown on the live feeds.
This is one of the most significant experiences in these people’s lives and to know that I’ve gotten the chance to impact their life and be a part of the experience with them gives me warm fuzzy feelings inside. Writing this much about a reality show might seem as crazy as Aunt Robin scrubbing the floor at 4AM and as fake as Gene and Joys showmance, but I am being 100% truthful. (That probably makes this post even more crazy!)
Thank you, ABC. Thank you Glass House producers and crew for creating a show that has entertained me greatly and has been the highlight of my summer. When I think back on Summer 2012, I will always remember The Glass House and the wonderful, crazy shenanigans. The show has brought me so much joy (no pun intended) and I can’t thank you enough.
I will go enjoy the next two episodes and final week of the live feeds now.
