OurPrisoner was a 2006 Internet reality television show that featured 35-year-old man Kieran Vogel, who lived on camera for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for an entirety of six months in a single family New Jersey home.
The show began on June 14, 2006. All of Kieran's actions were to be controlled by the public. Through a series of votes, viewers were to choose what he ate, what he wore, what he did, and whom he saw.
The OurPrisoner show came to an end on 15 December 2006 and Mr. Kieran Vogel received 40,000 shares of big string stock as his prize, now worth 3 cents a share; had he failed to perform any tasks, he would have received nothing. Well, truth is, the stock amounted to literally nothing.
According to the press release "Through an interactive media platform viewers will vote to determine what Kieran Vogel wears, what he eats, whom he dates, to whom he talks, what music he listens to, and much, much more. He will also react to viewer calls and emails."
In September, he was required to stay awake for 48 hours straight.
BigString announced that a second series would be held, but it never surfaced.
