Joy Glass // Glass House


Age 27 Hometown Fredericksburg, VA Occupation Nurse
I was born in Madrid, Spain. I am Spanish, French, and Scottish. My dad was in the Air Force and my family traveled a lot while I was growing up. I have lived in Spain, Germany, Saudi Arabia, and all over the USA! I am a single mom. I have a beautiful little girl. She is so sweet and smart! She makes my world go ’round! I have been modeling since 2007 and I have posed for Playboy 6 times. I love to travel, meet new people, and go to Playboy Golf events around the country. I am a huge animal lover. I have a cat named Jupiter and a fish named Mister Blue Fins. I am also a carnivore and prefer my steak medium rare. I enjoy cooking for friends and family. I think people who make instant mashed potatoes are lazy. Desserts are my specialty. I make a mean banana cream pie. I have even been known to wear a whip cream bikini! I am a big kid at heart. I love playing Pac Man, nerf guns, silly string, go carts, laser tag. Bring it! I enjoy watching cheesy horror films and re-runs of Saturday morning cartoons. My friends would describe me as bubbly and I am always up for an adventure! I think that life is short and each day should be lived to the fullest. I wake up every day and try to be the best me that I can be.

Russell Hantz // Survivor Samoa, Heroes Vs Villians, Redemption Island & A&E’s Flipped Off


Russell Hantz

Russell grew up poor in a big family in small town in Louisiana. From winning wrestling championships to building businesses he’s always been hungry for success. With his oil-tankering business off the ground he took a chance and auditioned for Survivor. He became a household name overnight as the show’s all-time number one villain. Now he’s using the same cut-throat tactics that served him so well on the island to claw his way to the top of the Houston real-estate market.

Gene Bryant aka “Hollywood” // Glass House


“Hollywood”, a nickname synonymous with Gene. With his charismatic appeal, dramatic presence, and chameleon like ability, Gene’s poised to impact the nations. This single, tall (6’7”), dark, and handsome young man is a force all his own. As a Stuntman, Wrestler, Professional Driver, Bodyguard, Director, Social Event Sponsor/Promoter and more, Gene wears many hats. He’s an ambitious force that sees anything he attempts become immensely successful without breaking a sweat. One of Gene’s most memorable moments was a towering “dunk” that shocked the crowd and shattered a backboard – gifting him with a few scars and a story! Paintball, basketball, football, snowboarding, roller coasters, collecting Star Wars memorabilia and, of course, his trademark-hats tell the story of Gene! With a personal mandate to enjoy New Life, Gene surrounds himself with positive people and is always ready for a good time, believing laughter is “good for the soul.” This gregarious and fun-loving guy makes sure that there is plenty to go around with a contagious and hilarious blend of knowledge, loving sarcasm, and a razor-sharp quick wit. Gene is a quiet storm with a ROCKSTAR mentality so watch out! Proudly, Gene has always been 100% drug free. Gene has several goals: to be the greatest stunt actor to ever live, to direct national and international hit stage plays and feature films, and open an international chain of faith-based social clubs. Internally, Gene’s upbringing and foundation keeps him firmly rooted. God, a great mother, a close-knit cadre of friends, and a never-ending quest for life affirming opportunities keeps him moving. He remembers jumping over a railing some 35 stories in the air to help free himself and his trapped friends from a rooftop stairwell. Gene’s mother, a strong and driven single parent, nurtured and encouraged her only child. He credits his good friend Joe Williams for motivating him to become a professional stuntman. After an unexpected death of a dear friend, “Rice”, he committed to making everyday EPIC because “it’s not about how long or short your life is, but what you do with the dash in the middle that counts,” Gene says. Gene strives everyday to do his best and focus on what’s right. An avid thrill seeker, Gene is undoubtedly one of the most adventurous and motivated individuals to hail from Chicago. This is shaping up to be a spectacular life for this twenty-something on the national and international stage.
