No matter if you like his game or not, it's pretty difficult to argue with the fact that Big Brother 17 houseguest Clay Honeycutt is a regulation hottie. Clay has stolen the hearts of many viewers and one particular houseguest, but there's way more to Clay Honeycutt than just a pretty face. Since he's entered the house, Clay has created a rather polarizing effect on fans. Sure, he's attractive. I get that. But he's also a game player (whether you like it or not), he's a romancer, and he is kind of a prankster (he's so fun).
I'm pretty thrilled that Clay has become something more than the "hot guy" of the season (remember when Clay was doing tuck jumps when he learned about the twins? That's me.). I'm not saying he shouldn't continue to fill that role, but as a #superfan of the show, dynamic game players always win my heart over any other type of houseguest, no matter how attractive. Looks can only get you so far, my dear boy. So what has Clay said and done things since moving in that makes him more than a pretty face? Here's a round-up of Clay moments that prove he's there to play the game and look hot, not solely the latter.
1. When He Offered To Be A Pawn
He's so thoughtful, and maybe a little naive. Being a pawn is never something you should offer.
2. When He Played The Damn Game
Clay was not worried to jump in the game and target one of the biggest players.
3. When He Said He Missed His "Momma"
I've melted into a puddle.
4. When He Was Excited About Candles
I'll make candles if that's what it takes.
5. When He Made This Cheeky Comment
The best part being, I don't think he realized how amazing this quote is out-of-context.
6. When He Called Audrey Special
She didn't quite reciprocate the emotion.
7. When He Became The Biggest Big Brother Cliché
At the end of the day... This phrase NEEDS TO GO.
8. When He Pranked Vanessa
Two Clay Honeycutts is not something to joke about.
9. When He Was Kind Of A Jerk
Because he 100 percent did think it was his HOH, not Shelli's.
Look, nobody's perfect (Hannah Montana said that), and Clay is no exception. He's just really close to it.
