Rumors Fly...Is the Pizza Boy a Last Minute Delivery? #BB15

As we count down the hours now until the premiere of BB15, some new gossip is flying around, and it's the kind of thing we can really sink our teeth into and chew on.  Kind of like a slice of Mellow Mushroom.  Kosmic Karma is my favorite, if you're wondering.

HERE IT IS:  McCrae Olson is likely an alternate house guest, who was added to the cast late in the process.


1.  The CBS interview is the only taped pre-season interview featuring McRae Olson.

2.  In other words, McCrae Olson is the only BB15 house guest who was not interviewed by the fine folks at WeLoveBigBrother and AllAboutBigBrother this year.  These interviews are usually taped a few days before the Big Brother Press Junket, but alas there is no McCrae interview on either site.

3.  The dogged posters at SurvivorSucks.com have been talking about it for days, so you know it's true.  Seriously.  They've got the juice, the scoop, and all of the dirt.  (I surfed around on their site last night and had a number of true Laugh Out Loud moments.  Shout out to Max Fisher who thinks McRae could DOR on Day #12 from pot withdrawal.  Ha ha ha.)

4.  On their message board they posted this exchange between Dingo at Hamsterwatch and Matt Maynard, who conducts all of the WeLoveBigBrother interviews.  Dingo wanted some answers regarding McCrae's interview and all Matt could do was give one of those little smile symbols
5.  This would indicate that Matt probably conducted an interview with a house guest who didn't make the cut.  That means that McCrae was subbed in for the booted house guest hopeful and is thus coming into the game as a relative Man of Mystery, only sitting down with Big Jeff.  (A poster at Survivor Sucks referred to Jeff as Dick Van Dyke Jr.----ha ha ha perfect.)  Note that Matt is sworn to secrecy regarding this type of thing.  He's not going to spill the name of the person who was booted.  Hell no.  He'd lose his interview privileges, right?


I sure hope McCrae puts out some good game in the BB house, because he's already got a huge fan club pulling for him on that website.  I'm not sure they expect him to win, but they certainly expect him to give us a good show.

I learned all of this information, and picked up all of the pictures from the SurivorSucks McCrae "Tuglord" Olson thread.

Yes, "Tuglord" is apparently McCrae's actual middle name.  You can't make that up.  Tuglord.  Ha ha ha.  I wonder if he will mention this in the house?

In the south, it is common to give a child (particularly the first child) the mother's maiden name as a middle name.  Is this what happened here?  What does that mean about the origins of his mother's family name?  Was someone's medieval role that of a "Tuglord"?  I guess that wouldn't be such a bad job.  You'd probably get to just laze around for the other 23 hours and 55 minutes per day, right?

And they combed McCrae's Facebook and posted some pictures for all to enjoy.  (I'm not even on Facebook because I think it blows.)  Let's all enjoy these pictures and feel free to form some new opinions of McCrae:

And now, my favorite:

I think we can all agree that McCrae will be an early Super Fan Favorite.  Please don't let us down in there, McCrae.


Let's also compare this situation to last year's BB14 casting drama.  CBS created a commercial that aired on the date of the house guest reveal that featured Sailing Instructor Mike, however Mike's interviews were never posted anywhere, because Mike got The Boot before actually going in the house.

This created opportunity for Chef Joe Arvin.  I heard Chef Joe say on the live feeds that as a BB14 alternate he was packed up to go back home when he Got The Call that he Made The Cut.  Frank Eudy was an alternate for BB13, so he just enjoyed the room service and other hotel amenities before getting sent home once all of the house guests were locked in.

I went to the Mellow Mushroom website to get a picture of the logo, and saw the following screen prominently featured:

I looked around a little to see if they had a new Thai pizza, salad or calzone, but I couldn't find one on the menu.  So, I guess they're just High on Thai.  Bonus. Their food is solid, if  you're wondering.  


  1. Tuglord is not his middle name. How on earth would you think that would be real?

  2. Why, I read it on the internet, so I know it's true.

    He also uses the name on his podcasts and his blog.

  3. He said on the live feeds that his full name is McCrae John Olson. I think the tug lord is referring to the large penis.

  4. Oh my.....

    I have also seen him use "Chumlord" as his middle name, too. I guess John is too vanilla for him.
