A Valencia mother of three has a one-in-three shot of winning $250,000 and reality TV stardom as the final episode of “The Glass House” is scheduled to air tonight.

Andrea Clark, a finalist on ABC’s show “The Glass House,” has survived 11 elimination-round cuts by television voters and is one of only three surviving contestants scheduled to appear on tonight’s show, which will reveal the overall winner.

The show’s finale was taped Thursday, but the winner won’t be revealed until tonight’s broadcast.

Clark’s husband, Kris Clark, says he knows who the winner is but has been sworn to secrecy. He said he’s happy that his wife will finally be allowed to come home Tuesday after being gone for the show for 12 weeks.

“The worst part of the competition is just the time away,” Kris Clark said. “I miss her like crazy.”

The Clarks have been married for 11 years, and Kris Clark said they’ve never been apart for more than a couple of weeks from the time they’ve met. He had to celebrate their 11-year wedding anniversary apart from her, he said.
Because of her absence, Kris Clark said, he respects his wife more than ever.

“Regardless what happens, what this does for our family is so much more than what $250,000 could buy,” Kris Clark said.

Kris and Andrea Clark are planning to go on a getaway after she returns home and will later take a family vacation with their three children.

“The Glass House” pits 14 contestants against each other, living and competing for a quarter-million dollars in a totally wired, state-of-the-art house. Voters determine which contestants are sent home and also which eliminated players will earn the chance to return to “The Glass House” to compete each week.

Andrea Clark, a 31-year-old mother of three, graduated Canyon High School in 1999.

She works as a bookkeeper at her parents’ tire shop — Big John’s Performance Tires on Creekside Road — with seven of her eight brothers.

“Growing up in a large family really shaped me into the person I am today,” she says on her biography maintained at the ABC webpage.

Although a viewing party was held for last week’s episode, when Andrea Clark was one of the four finalists, Kris Clark said they are going to hold a private viewing with friends and family only tonight.

“It’s going to be a great show,” Kris Clark said. “She looked beautiful, absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t be more proud of her.”

The final show airs at 10 p.m. tonight on ABC.
