A virtual Big Brother

The popular internet virtual world Second Life will host the next generation of reality shows, starting with the world famous Big Brother.

Endemol, the original producer of the show, will select 15 international Second Life contestants to spend at least eight hours a day inside a specially constructed glass-walled house for one month. As in the real-world version of "Big Brother," the contestants will be voted off until only one remains.

The winner will receive a virtual island within Second Life, worth about US$1,675.
