Apollo Poetry from "The Glass House" is one of the contestants in the ABC reality competition series. He is a poet and author from Phoenix, Arizona, whose motto is "One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching."

Apollo Poetry ("Glass House") says, "This summer, I have an opportunity to make a dream come true, but not without your support, which is why I'm calling out to all of you to join my team, as we rise to the top! (Cue 'Rocky' theme song.) A little background on me: I was raised on the East Coast and now live in the Southwest. I have had many challenges in my life, including being homeless and getting robbed at gun-point, but I always pushed forward regardless. I used my experiences as an opportunity to transform myself, rather than become a victim of my circumstances. In 2009, I overcame my fears and moved into my van to travel around America for six months. During this life-changing trip, I went to over 40 states and got to experience the diversity and culture of this country. I volunteered at homeless shelters, high schools, nursing homes, and everywhere I could. My mission was to spread positivity, to inspire and uplift people, and to promote the arts. I documented my journey in a book I wrote. Do I still have fears? We all do! The goal isn't to be perfect. The goal is to push through as much as we can and constantly grow and expand. Even though I have gone through a lot of tragedies, experienced loss, and suffered from countless health issues, I never used those things as EXCUSES. I chose to not allow my circumstances to be a crutch for my aspirations. Everything is a choice!"

Apollo continues, "My philosophy on life is to live it as passionately as possible. For that reason, I became obsessed with learning. So people get a little surprised when they find out that I'm an author, poet, photographer, poker player, magazine columnist, magician, rapper, certified life coach, activist, public speaker, entrepreneur and film-maker! Sound a little too ambitious? Well, I believe 'over-achiever' is a term that under-achievers made up to feel better about themselves. Our time on this planet is so short, so why waste it with the mundane? I want to inspire people to shake things up! Break through their fears! I am still working on breaking through my own and sometimes in life, you just have to take a chance and have faith. My goal for the show is to be myself, have fun, and be in the moment. I believe there is an equation for success, and I will not stop until I find it! The fact that you are reading this right now means that our paths were destined to cross and we are now connected on this great journey that lies ahead. And with that said, let's go kick some 'Glass House' butt, shall we?"
