Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Living... in Delta House, the worst fraternity at Faber College, in the early '60s. For John Blutarsky (a.k.a. “Bluto”), that’s an honor. But the fraternity may not be around much longer if Dean Wormer gets his way. If they don’t get off campus by nine o'clock Monday morning, the Dean will contact their local draft boards to inform them that Delta students are all eligible for military service.

Profession... college student, but not a very good one. After seven years, his grade point average is still 0.0.

Interests... chugging bottles of Jack Daniels, eating Jell-O with his fingers, and stalking sorority girls.

Challenge... hosting the great toga party he planned but the rest of his fraternity brother are too afraid to follow through with. But Bluto is not a quitter. As he says, "Did you say 'over'? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough, the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!” Bluto isn't much of a student of history, obviously, but he knows how to inspire a crowd.

Personality... fat, drunk, and stupid  at least that is what Dean Wormer says. Wormer says it's no way to go through life, but Bluto is having more fun than anyone. Who's to say that won't mean more to his success in life than whether, say, he ever goes to class or cracks a book?
