McCrae John Olson was a HouseGuest on Big Brother 15. After winning the first Head of Household and Power of Veto of the season, McCrae focused on laying low while his showmance, Amanda, dictated the house. While she was evicted during the first half of the second Double Eviction, McCrae managed to survive two more evictions by winning HoH during the second half of the second double eviction, and the PoV the following week. He was eventually blindsided by The Exterminators at the end of Week 11, and was evicted by the sole vote of GinaMarie. He placed 4th and became the eighth jury member.
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.
