Name: McCrae Olson

Age: 23

Hometown: Oak Grove, Minn.

Occupation: Pizza Delivery Boy

Marital Status: Single

Three adjectives that describe you: Funny, observant and calculating.

Favorite Activities: I love playing ice-hockey out on the ponds. I also love reading comics and playing video games. Typical boy stuff.

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the “Big Brother” house? Just having my own privacy. It’s going to be tough having cameras on you 24/7 and trying to find a little peace in there.

Strategy for winning “Big Brother:” My strategy is to play like James from Big Brother 6. Play smart when you need to, play physical when you need to and lay low.

Which past “Big Brother” cast member did you like most or least? My favorite player is of course Will Kirby. The way that man played the game is like watching the most beautiful ballet ever. It just seems like his mind was built for this game. There is something so beautiful about it.

What are you afraid of? Mice and ventriloquist dummies.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Right now I am working on this cartoon that I created and wrote. I am so proud of it.

Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is…Don’t take life too seriously…have a little fun with it.

What would you take into the house and why? A book, pen and paper. A book because I love reading and it’s going to be tough not reading anything in the house, and pen/paper because then I could write scripts, skits and draw to entertain myself.

What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous? I would use that fame to tell better stories through the video medium.

****McCrae is an alternate so did NOT get interviews by the outlets, but there is a short video on CBS with Jeff (Thanks Luke) CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO (http://www.cbs.com/shows/big_brother/video/n_zIAL6CI6GBB1Bgjk6ofHNgUDSO4wUF/big-brother-get-to-know-mccrae/)

So they definitely get the tapes from BB6...I've never seen James get so much attention...

Ian clone but creepier(sorry that guy of hair grosses me out...I think we have a greaser on our hands)

He seems nice though...

I dont know, he doesnt seem smart or particularly strong competition wise, maybe be able to play strategically but I don't see him going far. And yes, he NEEDS to get that hair sorted out please.

He would be so much better looking if he used a humidity defense cream in his hair. Nice face. Seems like a cool guy. Loves his job. Do yo thang, boy.

OK... he didn't seem too interesting until I found his twitter (I think)

https://twitter.com/mccraechum

If this is him, he's got a podcast
http://www.loungetownpodcast.com/ Which he shows the cartoon he made, so hmmmm??

Facebook maybe https://www.facebook.com/mccraeolson?fref=ts

Maybe if he got a haircut, I'd like him more. Right now, he gives off completely dorky and creepy vibes, so not a fan

Pink is off finding things, dayum!!!!

So this guy was an alternate. WLBB and Big Brother Network didn't get to interview him. I actually wonder now if the Gabe thing was real. If Gabe got kicked out because his family made a Twitter account too early and Elissa didn't get kicked out after Rachel pretty much confirmed via Twitter, then that's bull shit. I hate the double negatives. Although this guy seems interesting.

No the person who made Gabe's twitter admitted it was a fake on the twitter.

So poor guy, it's extra unfair that he doesn't even get interviewed by some sources..no way he'll win MVP.

AG strikes again!

Janelle did big him up though. She posted that she was rooting for him, and I guess he is a fan of hers, or they might know each other as she has this pic:

He will probably get quite a few votes from the Janelle crew.

EDIT: Looking at the pic, he is most probably just a fan who went to one of her signings.

I think that was at the casting call this year. I know she was at one.

And ya, not having interviews will hurt him. I wonder who they cut for him.

Gabe's replacement, LOL! I like him, probably second favorite guy.

Wonder if we'll ever find out...

Nice to know he's a fan at least...Just give him a haircut and I can root for. Without it, I don't really like looking at his face.

LOL Maybe he'll get one in the house. Someone always does get some major cut.

Wasn't Joe a replacement last season? A guy dropped out last minute.

Just watched his interview with Jeff... and I soooooo like him!!!! He is on the top of my list :)

Hmmm, I kinda like him. He seems like the superfan I wanted Ian to be.

Know your role, shut your hole? LOLOL

I want to like him...but the hair...the God awful hair. And knowing how greasy some people get...I'm just scared is all..

But he is definitely nice...I hope he keeps quiet about being a superfan...Hold his knowledge close to the chest, don't reveal what comps he thinks are coming or knowledge about past HGs. Being Superfan after Ian's win is a ticket out of the house.

Also can we get Jeff to replace Julie as host?

LOL too much Jeff.

And ya, he needs to keep the superfan fact close to his chest.

A much for him laying low. Haha. After watching the first episode, I really like this guy. He seemed to really stand out from the crowd, although I totally agree Cappie...the hair is insane!

B-O-R-I-N-G!!!

I am so sick of watching him pick and bite his cuticles and his scabs.

I'd rather watch spencer pick his nose
