I think we can all agree that when it comes to playing the Big Brother game, Clay Honeycutt is maybe not in the Big Brother 17 lead. Sure, every contestant has their faults, but I can’t even count the number of times this season that his strategy has made me cringe and shake my head — because there have been so many. (Like, does he not know that he’s making a total mess of things?!) But, whether or not you like him for how he plays the game, I think we can all agree on one thing about Clay Honeycutt: He would make an AMAZING boyfriend.
To be clear, when I say “boyfriend” I in no way mean “life partner” or “husband” or “future father of your children.” Honestly, I’m almost entirely sure he would be amazing at those things at this point in his life (hey, I could be wrong). But a boyfriend? The kind who you keep around for a few months because he’s fun and super sexy and maybe helps you put together those IKEA bookshelves you’ve had stacked in the corner of your apartment for months? Yes. That he would be fantastic at.
Admit it — you see it too. There are A LOT of reasons why Clay Honeycutt would make a good boyfriend (and if he just happened to come into your life after a rough breakup, ALL THE BETTER).
So let’s look past his questionable game strategy, shall we? Instead, let’s praise Clay for all of the things he is really, really good at.
1. He’s Super Pretty
Looks aren’t everything, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate THAT FACE.
2. He Won’t Mind If You’re Older
At least not if you’re Head of Household. When talking with Shelli about the fact that she was so much older than he is, he said he loved her shriveled little body. Awwwww… ? What beautiful 30-year-old woman wouldn’t want to hear that?
3. He Could Just, Like, Pick You Up And Bring You Places
With arms like those? He could be your human Uber.
4. He’d Make A Hot Date
Especially to a reunion where you know you’ll be running into your ex-boyfriend who is somehow now dating a hotter, more talented version of you, even though he deserves to be alone and miserable for the rest of his life. Yeah, showing up with Clay on your arm for that reunion would be pretty much perfect.
5. He’d Carry All Your Bags/Books/Luggage
Really anything. The man could carry anything.
6. Your Mother Would Love Him
OK, my mother would love him. She’s a total sucker for good looking men with beautiful eyes.
7. He’d Make A Good Trophy
Like, literally. If he sucks at everything else you could just make him stand shirtless in the corner to brighten your day whenever you walk by.
Not all of the Big Brother houseguests are going to be perfect at everything. But luckily for Clay, his looks well make up for his flaws.
