Pike Resident Nominated for ‘Roommate of the Year’

Columbia Pike resident Jesse McLaughlin is one of 12 nationwide finalists competing for the title of “Roommate of the Year.”

McLaughlin, a security analyst, advanced to the finals thanks to a humorous contest entry video that showcased his willingness to do the dishes, clean the bathroom, pay for pizza, make dessert and perform other feats of roommate courtesy. The video, entitled “Roommating MVP,” is narrated by a faux-British sports announcer.

McLaughlin will win free rent for a year and $10,000 cash if he can gather the most votes online by July 31. The contest is sponsored by
