Craig and Jeremy are twin brothers. They come from a poor background. All their lives, they wanted to get enough money together to start their own business. Then, one day, as they were shopping in the mall, they caught the eye of a producer for a reality show. He stopped them as they were about to enter a sporting goods store and told them they would be perfect for a new show he was going to produce for the upcoming season. All they had to do was live in a glass house and do all the things they usually did during the day. The catch was they would be filmed 24/7. The time period would be for 3 months. At the end of 3 months, they would each get one million dollars. If the show turned out to be the hit he thought it would be, they would get an additional bonus. The brothers were a first skeptical. They said 'No.' But the producer came back at that with some pretty convincing arguments for 'Yes??.' They told him they needed to check out his references and would let him know the next week. After a thorough investigation by the brothers, they discovered the producer was legitimate. The brothers asked their friends what they thought about it and everyone said they would be crazy not to take the guy up on his offer. So they signed the contract and everything went ahead as scheduled. The first couple weeks went smoothly as the brothers adjusted to the glass house and the camera crews around them. But by the third week, things started getting a little frantic. One morning, both brothers got out of bed, in the nude, and tried to have a private conversation. 'Not allowed,' came a voice over a loud speaker on one of the glass walls. 'We need to hear everything you say. We are entering the sweeps week and need to hear your every word. Our viewers are really eating up this show!' Craig whispers over to Jeremy, 'I'm not sure I like livin in a glass house.' Well, to cut to the chase, the brothers resolve overcame their quibbles about the accomodations, and at the end of the 3 months, the show was such a resounding success, the producer wanted to sign them on for another season. He said he would give them each two million dollars if they would sign. The brothers looked at each other and simultaneously said, 'NO WAY!' The producer was good on his word, though. Not only did they each get a million dollars, but after tallying up the proceedings from all the affiliates, the brothers each got an addition five hundred thousand dollars. Looks like perhaps they can start their own business now. The producer couldn't help overhearing them celebrating and carrying on about the new business. He came back over to them and said, 'Well, I know I can't get you to live in the glass house again, but would you be interested in allowing me to film you starting your new business? It would be only on your schedule and we'd shut the cameras off whenever you said we should. I'll give you each another million dollars. What do you say?' 'Weeeelllll??'
