I think McCrae will be bombarded with reasons from his friends to not move to Florida with Amanda. He's completely whipped by Amanda, the question is if his real life friends can bring him back into the real world. I don't know what he's gonna do.
I do wish we could have watched him play this season without being attached to Amanda. I think he could have won it all, and it will be his biggest BB regret.
Season 16 Faves - Zach, Derrick, & Donny #STFUFrankie
Season 14 Faves - Britney, Shane, Dan, and Ian!!!
Well, I don't know...um, I, I just don't know...

In effect, both Amanda and Candice could have been right at the time about McCrae in a Shrodinger type of way based on what they knew. He was both an ineffective coattail rider and a shrewd strategist at the same time. Since then we saw him be blind to the alliance against him and fail to take action either to convince a subset to turn against Andy or to directly target Andy and court Elissa as an alliance when he had a chance.
So, as it turns out Candice was right about him, but Amanda COULD have been right. He got far in the game. And he did so being more loyal to his alliance than anyone else had been. If he had used that position effectively then he might have been seen as brilliant. But, alas, it seems a lucky coattail rider he was.
If McCrae is stupid enough to actually pursue an outside relationship with Amanda, the FIRST thing she will do, like right after the finale, it attmept to isolate him from his friends and family so he has no outside feedback. She is SUCH an abusive boyfriend, hope she (McCrae) doesn't fall for it. If she (McCrae) is foolish enough to go to Florida with him (Amanda), she (McCrae) is doomed.

Mccrae is annoyed and feels he made the wrong game decision siding with Amanda, but he still has feelings for her. That is the impression I got.
Those two will give it a shot together. What happens a few months from now, who knows.
I don't think he feels he made the wrong decision by siding with her; he feels he made the wrong decision because he didn't listen to her!
After the Exterminators told him everything, he kept saying that she was right the whole time and he should have listened to her. He regretted siding with Andy instead of Elissa, even though Amanda told him not to. She saw the signs, she told him about the signs (IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!!!1!), and he ignored it. That lead him to his eviction, or at least a position in the game where it was win or go home.
Him hiding behind her as a shield (which a lot of people fail to acknowledge him doing on purpose) was a very smart move for him. He knows that. We [should] all know that. If this wouldn't have happened, I think he would have been outed a long time ago for being a comp beast and a schemer. He's a superfan. There's a lot more behind his "umms" and "yups" IMO. Quiet people have loud minds.
Will they remain together after the show? Who knows. You share a special kind of bond in there. I could see it working out - at least for a while.
Cody: I'm going to miss you when we get out of here, Nicole.
Donny: You can probably find some married woman in Jersey to play with
McCrae goes whichever way the wind blows; he does what people tell him to and rarely seems able to articulate his own thoughts, ideas, motives, or desires. When he goes to the jury house, he's going to fall under Amanda's spell again. And when he returns home, everyone who cares about him will tell him what an idiot he is, how the blew the opportunity of a lifetime, and how he squandered a chance that 40,000 people this year applied for. Even HamsterWatch seems embarrassed by how he got suckered.
He'll try to resist checking out the comments about him online. The show's producers and psychologists warn the HGs that this is something they absolutely do not want to do. But eventually, he'll succumb to his curiosity and in a couple months he'll want nothing to do with Amanda.

Yea plus hes a superfan of show. He is going check forums like with 100% and will feel like an idiot. He was prob on forums like this before he went on.
I agree. He'll have regrets. Getting out of the pajamas and out of bed and socializing would have been at least an attempt. It was as if he was completely under her spell and forgot he was on BB.
