Frank: Good Ship Lollipop
Our first gentleman caller of the day is 28 year old Frank Eudy from Arkansas. Frank is currently unemployed and enjoys going to the beach, exercising and being around people. The most difficult part of being in the house for Frank will be keeping that luscious mop atop his head camera ready. Bouncy tendrils like Frank's require care, love, and a photo of Christoper Atkins a la Blue Lagoon or The Pirate Movie. You've gotta respect a guy who's willing to shun the modern fashions in favor of a coif that enticed Kristy McNichol.
Frank has an interesting approach to Big Brother. Putting together a carefully crafted band of ne'er-do-wells, he believes, is his ticket to the end. His merry band of thieves would consist of a good ole honest southern boy, an unflappable tower of strength, someone who knows the ins and outs of the game, a "baller" who'll win competitions, and a friendly point runner calling the shots. Frank, of course, would be the shot caller. Instantly, I'm intrigued by his thought process and get this... no mention of Jeff or Jordan anywhere!
I'm excited about this one! Let's meet Frank. Please to enjoy:
I'm getting a very strong young Matthew McConaughey vibe from Mr. Eudy. It's the accent and laid back confidence that draws you in and makes you want to hear more. That flotsam and jetsam hair of his all wispy and aggressive yet at the same time gentle is Frank in follicle form. His hair is him. He is his hair.
What's this? He's prepared to lie and manipulate? Oh happy day! *glitter falls from the sky* It's interesting he cites Dan and Boogie as his immediate influences. If the mentor rumors are true, will Frank turn to starstruck jelly and ditch his own plan for planetary domination? See, that's why I don't like mixing new people with old people. The organic flow of personalities is interrupted and things just get weird. Weird and stifled. Stagnate and festering.
Overall, he's got a good head of hair on his shoulders. He's thought the game out logically and isn't looking to torpedo through the summer as a one man band. It'll work in his favor that he's not uptight, is open-minded, and is ready to embrace what's thrown at him. As far as first impressions go, I'm not crinkling my nose and gritting my teeth like I have so far today. I realize there's a tinge of the Hayden in him, but Hayden had about as much charisma as a piece of fairy poop whereas Frank is a happy go lucky guy who doesn't need to hide behind a helmet on his head.
What do you guys think? Are you drawn in my the Frank charm or do you want to sneak into the house in the thick of night and snip off his curls one by one?
