There are no negative numbers in today's Brain Game. With that in mind, what's the next number in this sequence, and what is the pattern behind today's puzzle?

1, 0, 11, 27, ?

Here is the SOLUTION.

THE SOLUTION:

77.

The numbers represent the smallest integers that can be spoken with increasing syllables:

1 = 1 syllable ("one"),
0 = 2 syllables ("ze-ro"),
11 = 3 syllables ("e-lev-en"), 
27 = 4 syllables ("twen-ty-sev-en"), so...

77 = 5 syllables ("sev-en-ty-sev-en").

FWIW, that this puzzle won't really work for the largest number with increasing syllables, because at the point of 3 syllables, possible entries include very high numbers like "9 billion," "9 trillion," and so on.
