We’re not sure that James Huling is going to be someone who can win “Big Brother 17,” but he is someone we’re very intrigued to see play because he probably has lived to this point one of the most interesting lives out of anyone on the show. He grew up in a boys’ home after the death of his mother, was eventually adopted by a Caucasian family, and has since grown up to have his own family. He’s a guy who has also served in the military, and is bringing therefore a lot of different skills into the game.
As for whether or not he fits in with a group of people whose mental age is probably much younger than his, that is to be seen over the course of the season.
First Impression – James is a hard-working guy, and is someone who can probably handle the mental stress of being in the game in so far as not letting a whole lot of stuff get to him. He is probably going to be deceptive as far as the competitions go, and we think that in general contestants will look at him and just think that he is just a goofy dude from the south more so than a serious threat.
Worst Impression – He’s leaving behind two children, and that for him may be very difficult. In addition to that, he’s also probably going to realize that he cannot be like he was in the military in this house. People aren’t going to clean up after themselves, they will talk about stupid subjects, and we’re not sure he will relate to any of them. He just has such different priorities in his life.
We hope that James lasts long enough that we get to know more about him, but we feel like it is very unlikely that he will still be there come September.
