Toledo police officer shows Rocket pride while competing on new reality show

June 25, 2012 | Features, UToday



A Toledo police officer is supporting The University of Toledo while a contestant on a new summer reality show on ABC.

Toledo Police Sgt. Kevin Braun wore a UT hat during the first episode of “The Glass House.”

“The Glass House” is similar to the CBS hit “Big Brother” with the unique difference of viewers being involved with the program by making suggestions to shape the contestants’ daily lives and determining who stays on the show.

Fourteen contestants, including Toledo Police Sgt. Kevin Braun, are fighting to stay in the house to have a chance to win $250,000.

On the first episode, which aired June 18, Braun sported a midnight blue and gold UT baseball cap for the nation to see.

Braun, who lives in Walbridge, has been a member of the Toledo Police Department for 12 years.

Watch “The Glass House” Mondays at 10 p.m. on ABC to see if Braun shows off more Rocket gear as he competes for the cash prize.
