Scott's Initial Impressions - McCrae

McCrae Olson, 24 

Hometown: Oak Grove, Minn. 

Current City: Oak Grove, Minn. 

Pizza Delivery Boy 

The second Minneapolis resident is a bit of a mystery. There are no video interviews on any of the alternative sites, so one has to sit through Jeff’s terrible chat with him on Does this mean he’s a late addition? Is it possible that “Gabe-gate” caused a last second departure for a certain lacrosse player? 

Before we get to the interview, McCare is apparently a true superfan. Hamsterwatch immediately noted that he was a member of her site, and so is naturally rooting for him.

I’ll admit that while theoretically we would like to see real fans of the game be on the show, rarely do they actually work out. Yes, I realize that Ian fits into that category, but his victory last year was more due to Dan’s only mistake of the season than Ian’s charm, cunning, and wits. 

Honestly, they generally are lacking a bit in the social skills and/or the physical attributes. They may be able to recite every player who has ever appeared, but aren’t equipped to really deal with sharing a space with over a dozen other people. Some of them are also a bit too cocky about their own intelligence, and that always leads to their demise.

So let’s take a look at McCrae. We get a whole two minutes in these Jeff videos, primarily (I’m assuming) because that’s the limit of Jeff’s attention span. He’s a nice kid, albeit a dork. Ugh, Jeff also asks about showmances, and McCrae does play along. He says he’s open to it, but come on. It’s unlikely. Good luck to you, though.

I hope he does well, but I have a feeling he will be bro’d and ho’d out of there relatively quickly. If he does make it to sequester, though, he could have a shot at making it far.

How do you know about a lacrosse player? also. i think he's got a real shot... im one of his best friends and he's been living in a house where anywhere from 8 to 15 people hang out 24-7. he does surprisingly well with women too. Yeah he does read comic books and watch Batman...the children's cartoon, but he has very good social skills.

Daniel, I actually hope he does do really well. I just think he would have better suited for last year's cast. The lacrosse reference was to a person's twitter account that was supposedly taken over by his friends because he was cast on BB. There are reports this was a hoax, but no real confirmation.

Keep in touch with us. I'd love to hear more of your persepctive.

really? If that was a hoax, it would have had to be from a die hard fan. No regular viewer would keep up with all of the BB news. It could probably be figured out easily, but who cares really.
So what are your thoughts on VIP for week one?

The power is unknown and the contestant who receives it could choose whether or not to use it. The only catch is that it would definitely give the contestant an itchy trigger finger if they are not conservative enough. If used it could also give that person too much power and cause them to be viewed as a threat as we see in past BB seasons.

Also note that Mccrae has thought a great deal about his strategy, and has decided that the best way to win is to play like James from season 6 and go kind of under the radar.
Do you see getting the V.I.P. power as more of a threat early on in the season?
