'The Glass House' Premiere: Alex Vows To Be 'The Most Epic Villain In The History Of Reality TV' (VIDEO)

Opening with the lines, "The show they didn't want you to see," ABC premiered "The Glass House" (Mon., 10 p.m. ET on ABC). CBS had tried -- unsuccessfully -- to block it from the air as part of a lawsuit that alleged "The Glass House" is too similar to "Big Brother."

There are some notable differences, like the almost ridiculous amount of viewer involvement. It did bring an interesting element to the show, though. "Primetime 99" Alex Stein -- that's his own nickname and he's very proud of it -- asked America if he should "turn into the most epic villain in the history of reality TV."

America voted yes -- the other players don't know what he asked -- and he immediately transformed into one of the meanest people to ever play a reality show. After his team lost the first challenge, he found himself put up for elimination by vote in the house, alongside the automatic nod for his team captain Jacob.

In a closing shock, it was revealed that Jacob actually quit the game as soon as he was sent to limbo to await America's decision. But that doesn't make Alex automatically safe. He still awaits America's vote.

Find out if he goes or returns when "The Glass House" continues, Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
