Meet ”Big Brother 5”’s Jase

Evicted Aug. 12, 2004


AGE 28

FROM Decatur, Ill.

OCCUPATION Volunteer firefighter

WHAT HE SAYS Jase calls himself ”crazy, crazy, crazy,” which is, you know, far more zany that just plain ol’ ”crazy.” He says he’s going to miss his puppy the most while in the house, which might explain the way he describes his own strategy: ”A controlled mess — like falling on the ground, yet missing the dog turd.”

WHAT WE SAY Sure, Jase is crazy — crazy like a fox. So far, he’s off to a good start: He’s already in an alliance, and he ruled the first week as the immunity-winning Head of Household. But we advise him to curb the gloating — cocky comments such as ”It’s like a sultan’s lair” and ”Fear me” won’t easily be forgotten when another houseguest takes the HoH reins.
