Anyone that who lives, acts, and has qualities like a bum. The term is most used when a scrub is talking out of place. Scrubs are usually the people that people refer to as "losers".

Some times these bum-like loser that are now known as scrubs, at times think they are more than something than what they are, and try to hide the fact they are scrubs. You don't want to have anything to do with scrubs! When you're needing to identify a scrub, refer to this page for examples.
Most would agree a scrub is anyone who looks, acts, lives, is anything like, or can resemble Blake Fisher.

If you disagree, or questioning, you most likely don't know him.

A kid who blows at everything he does. Scrubs are usually creatures that are clumsy and don't know how to do anything, especially play videogames. They usually let anyone & everyone win at any videogame. Specifically CoD and Miniclip 8ball pool. They will most likley end up scrubbing carpets as their career.
