    Janelle Brown: Smarter Than Your Average Brown (Maybe)

    "General unease" = sharing my man with two women I tolerate and one that I outright loathe.

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    So much this. I have never seen him smile with his entire face in every picture I have seen so far of him and Lauren, including his wedding day. Compared/contrasted with, say, JD and Abbie, the differences are night and day. Josiah is a young man who does not appear to be in love with his wife, and Lauren is a far-too-young woman who was indoctrinated with the mission of making her husband happy for the rest of their lives, and in her spare time, pop out as many babies as possible. It's an impossible situation for both of them. It sucks, because I always liked Josiah. He was the only one of the Wonder-Bread boys that actually seemed to have a real spark of personality. I hope JB and Michelle are both super happy that they've managed to squash that from him, as well as preserve whatever "secrets" Josiah has about himself.

    Janelle Brown: Smarter Than Your Average Brown (Maybe)

    I agree with @Tuxcat. I definitely think Janelle is chronically depressed/anxious and she chooses food and checking out to cope. She absolutely shouldn't be marketing herself as a health coach because if even 10 people are using her plethora of excuses for not exercising, she's doing damage. It's common freaking sense that if one is going to be sitting in a car for five hours, one should get the blood flowing before that, as well as make stops along the way to get out and walk around. What's so maddening is that she's putting herself out there as if she knows what she's talking about when she clearly has massive issues with her own self-care. She should not be leading a health group, she should be joining one. I think she is so completely comfortable in her self-made cocoon of denial and repression that she's afraid to come out of it, or she just doesn't know how. She initially came across as the "smart," self-driven wife, but I think she's actually the one who is in the most harmful place - when emotions come up, she eats. When confronted by issues, she checks out and barely registers a pulse. And now she has people following and possibly mimicking her awful brand of self-care.
  4. Mariah should team up with Meri and sell LulaNo for yogis. Just imagine - down dog would constantly be interrupted as the yogis get into position and watch as their leggings rip right down the middle.

    Janelle Brown: Smarter Than Your Average Brown (Maybe)

    Who drinks five glasses of lemonade with dinner?! The cheap looking silverware, huge quesadilla, the glob of dried-out looking refried beans and the two gallons of lemonade point to it being all Janelle. If it's a stock photo, it sure is a weird one to tack on to the end of her post about processed food. When you read through one of these things and play the game "Janelle or @Mahamid Frauded Me?" you know things are getting ridiculous.

    Janelle Brown: Smarter Than Your Average Brown (Maybe)

    I don't know how many followers "Strife with Janelle" has, but sadly I think this is exactly why her followers are following her - to confirm that this Z-list celeb health coach, who is overweight and stressed just like them, has a whole list of excuses about why everything is so harrrrrrrrrd. She COULD be in a position to actually help those people. She COULD be losing weight, even a few pounds a month, if she actually stuck to anything for more than five minutes and stopped with all the miracle products. Instead, she is leading people down a road to nowhere. It's too hot? Don't go outside. It's too cold? Don't go outside. Walk every day for a week but then don't walk for a month and see what happens to your leg muscles. Try ghee, peppermint, canned cabbage, nutmeg and avocado smoothies. When those don't fill you up, sneak to Burger King and eat your Whopper behind the dumpster. It's frustrating because I actually think Janelle is clinically depressed, not just because of her weight but because of her lifelong tendency to just check out. She needs to fix herself, and she thinks the way to do it is to pose as someone who is helping others. In reality, no one is getting better. I would have a ton more admiration for her if she would drop the fake health coach gig and seriously work on herself, and let the subsequent photos show us that she's making progress.

    S38:E14 I See the Million Dollars

    Same for me, except substitute Thailand for Samoa. Come on, Survivor. Be great again. Stop hiding 125 idols and then having the cameraman hang out by the specific tree where the idol is hidden so the Golden Player can find it (at least that's how it happened in my head). What a nonsensical season that I won't ever re-watch. As Cook Islands is my favorite season, I have to comment on this...when Becky and Sundra went up against each other making fire to get to the Final 3, the wind was blowing their sticks and ashes all over the place. When they ran out of flint, Probst gave them matches and then smarmily sat there while neither woman could get her fire started - but these two guys get to go up where it's nice and sheltered from the wind. Phooey on that. Make that fire in the wind, rain or snow if that's the way to get to Final 3. Sending them up to the voting booth where not everyone could watch is complete BS. Please no. I've also had more than enough of Joey Amazing and His Flowing Locks of Wonder. A whole two minutes wasted on Joe's hair. Just no. Reem's haircut looked cool, though. That's all I got. On to season 39...........

    While I applaud the fact that she is going for walks, and walking is great for the body and mind, I have to mention that as a "certified health coach" whose job it is to supposedly give exercise advice, I would think that she'd certainly be well past the 2-mile mark by now. And I think her saying that her cardio is in "OK shape" is code for "I can't really breathe when I hike." If she keeps this up, I give her credit. Where I take issue is that she makes it seem like her legs actually atrophied over the fall and winter due to no walking at all. And she's a health coach. And how is it possible that she barely moved for two seasons - isn't that when they were moving? Doesn't one have to move to move?!

    Maddie Brown: Seeking a One-Woman Man

    Spoiler - from the podcast, the host or guest mentioned that at one point, you could search for the LLN warehouse on Google Earth and the resulting photos showed boxes and boxes of merchandise sitting outside in the hot, humid sun. So if Google Earth captured that photo, you know that crap had been sitting outside for quite some time. The more I hear about this scheme, the more amazed I am that it's still actually functioning as a money making business. It boggles the mind.

    Mykelti

    It looks like Tony ordered a pepperoni pizza with extra-extra cheese, dropped it on the ground, and before he could pick it up someone rode over it with a bicycle, and rather than order a new pizza Tony brought it home and dumped it on a mound of buttered white rice mixed with Velveeta.
  12. Yikes, don't tempt her because I am positive she'd be up for that particular challenge! As someone who is considering going through yoga teacher training even though I am not 20 (or 30, or 40), it bugs me to no end that Snowflake someone came up with the cash to not only get the training but do it in freakin' Bali. And sign me up as one who thinks she's mostly doing it for how woke it makes her look to her minions on social media. I can't help but think that if she were doing it for altruistic or heartfelt reasons, she wouldn't need to craft these Posey McPoserson pictures and wait for her adoring masses to slobber over how great she is. Blechhhh.

    S16.E06: Fire Escape

    I noticed that too - it was as if Rob was fulfilling his contract by technically "appearing" on the show but the camera never showed him full-face. He was either off-center, or we could only hear his voice from a phone or a darkened room or from behind Dream, etc. It's starting to creep me out. The man is not well, hasn't been for years, and he doesn't appear to be getting any better...it's no longer interesting and definitely not entertaining to see him behaving so bizarrely. When your sister comes into your room to tell you that it's time to evacuate and you start yelling at her that Pop Tart now has crisps?? Something is really not right.

    Maddie Brown: Seeking a One-Woman Man

    There's a podcast called "Sounds Like MLM But OK." If you can get past the lousy editing, there are a couple of episodes that talk specifically about LuLaNo and one in particular had a guest who quickly rose very high in the ranks and then quit, and she has some serious tea to spill. The founders of LLN are bat-crap crazy, the merchandise - once well made - ended up being shipped wet and moldy and reeking of cat pee to many consultants, and there are probably thousands of sellers who were promised money back for defective clothes and have been waiting years for checks that probably will never arrive. Sounds like the perfect scheme for the Browns! Is Truely selling yet??

    Grande iced dirty chai tea latte from Starbucks for me, thanks! (and I feel like such a poser whenever I order...like I want to turn my own hose on myself and get off my own lawn). And I am still laughing at how she put her bookshelves "next together." Between organizing her books and sticking on her nail art du jour, she must be exhausted at the end of the day. Thank goodness FT knows how to cook chicken cordon "blue."
