Posted by Humphrey Cheung

Big Brother, the hit television show where contestants are stuck in a house, is coming to Second Life's virtual world. Fifteen players will stay in a glass house with one being voted off each week. The surviving player will get a virtual island with the game.

Second Life has over one million players, making it one of the most popular online games. Its virtual currency, 'Linden Dollars' can be purchased with real money. Players can buy virtual property in the form of land plots or even entire islands.
