I also get the vibe that he's gay.
Based on having a gay friend and liking knitting? Or those shorts?
Leaving that aside... he doesn't like crazy? Based on past seasons he's going to be tested!
Cirie is one of my favorite all-time players, so I'm eager to see how this guy will do.
If he can cope with crazy as well as Cirie did he'll do well!
Who is he? We have barely seen him. Given the situation now I don't see how he can last beyond the next two weeks.
I think Michael has been pretty open about his sexuality. And, if he hadn't, Corinne has taken care of that for him. That said, I'm somewhat put off by Corrine's referring to Michael as "her gay". I think it's rude.
Kathy "what's her name" (the vile red-haired comedienne) uses the phrase "my gay" frequently. I think it's okay if a gay person is your good friend and has agreed to being referred to that way, but not a casual acquaintance.
