McCrae's Podcast Appearance -- "McCravin Slop"


McCrae Olson recently made an appearance on Chelsea Peretti's podcast.  I have to admit I had never heard of Chelsea Peretti before this, but I'm sure she's never heard of me, either.

Apparently she's a Big Deal, appearing on Brooklyn 9-9 and writing for a number of comedians.  And she's a Big Brother fan, albeit a very guilty, self-loathing Big Brother fan.  But aren't we all,  in one way or another?

This podcast isn't very long, and it is irritating to have Chelsea constantly say her fans are going to be mad that she talked about Big Brother for a whole episode, but I recommend listening to it for the following highlights:

*  Chelsea is legitimately obsessed with Big Brother, and everything that goes with it.

*  Chelsea films her show on the same lot as Big Brother (Radford Lot?) and admits to driving the long way out of the studio every day so she can try and get a glimpse of the action.

*  Chelsea admits to seeing sets being built and other construction outside the Big Brother walls days before we see it on the show, but knows she can only text her closest friends with this info due to the fact she'd like to keep her CBS job.

*  McCrae tells Chelsea he only went to a BB casting event at Mall of America so he could meet former players like Janelle, but I think he was clearly lying to try and sound cool to Chelsea.

*.  McCrae talks about how he was only an alternate house guest for BB15 until the last minute, when there was a knock on his hotel room door.

*  Towards the end, Chelsea hits McCrae with a HUGE topic...the love letter that McCrae wrote to Jessica that Amanda found on his computer, which ended his relationship with Amanda in spectacular fashion.

She did not, however, ask McCrae about his rain-soaked odyssey in search of LSD after the break up.  Well, there's always next time.
