  1. Hopefully it's just a timing issue of when the photo was taken, as there are a couple other girls that don't appear to have their front thighs down on the ground..
  2. Here's what I found about the "challenge accepted" trend. Since this came from the internet 🤨 who knows what the "true" intent is until the person that originated speaks up. https://www.standard.co.uk/insider/alist/black-white-challenge-accepted-instagram-a4510516.html A new viral Instagram challenge is encouraging women to share black and white selfies on their social media accounts. The new trend, referred to as “Challenge Accepted” or the “Women Supporting Women Challenge,” invites women to share a simple black and white photo of themselves. Already, celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon, Olivia Wilde and Naomi Watts have taken part. But what is it about, exactly? Here's what you need to know... What is the #ChallengeAccepted trend? In a bid to share positivity and encourage female empowerment during the challenging time of the pandemic, women have been posting black and white selfies and tagging their friends to do the same - often penning heartfelt captions about strength and solidarity. A public relations and influencer marketing manager for social media marketing firm Later told the New York Times that the new trend may have been sparked by US Representative Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, after she spoke out against sexist comments made against her by US Representative Ted Yoho. The powerful video triggered a wave of posts about female empowerment and feminism, which some have suggested may have also sparked the new challenge. Some connected the challenge to another intended to spread awareness of violence against women happening in Turkey. On Twitter, a post circulated claiming the challenge was started by Turkish women to raise awareness for femicide after the murder of Pınar Gültekin. However, others dispute this and say while women were sharing black and white photos, it was not as part of this challenge. Instead, the accompanying hashtags were said to translate to "say no to violence against women" and "enforce the Istanbul Treaty," which protects women's rights.
  3. It seems to me that as long as the NFL has not canceled the season: the cheerleaders have to assume that the league is going to play and there will be at least a limited number of fans for them to perform for. Once the NFL season is canceled then Charlotte will decide what they are going to "do" with their performance contracts and salary for the year. So right now it's business as usual the best of their abilities given the situation.
  4. I know this is an unusual year, but If I remember correctly they rarely "cut" vets that make it to training camp. Is there any vet that Kelli/Charlotte are unhappy enough with right now to cut during TC?
  5. Annabelle (cute as a button), Armani, Claire W, , Elli, Jessica, Marissa, Shannan, Sheridan. I probably selected Marissa because she is the only one with shorter hair, so it makes her stand out to me.
  6. I don't have a problem with apprenticeship programs or even the teenagers following around Chad, Zach, Gil or whomever. In my opinion, It's a great opportunity to decide if they like and have the constitution for that particular career plan. If they do, great, go to college and get your license/degree; if you don't then move on to something else.
  7. I'm just curious. I know Josie was a preemie, and had issues the first few years, but does she have any health conditions now?
  8. Didn't we already see a show like that? Had to look it up *L* Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie. Now I must confess I never actually watched the show, just the ads for it, so I do not know the actual content, but I would guess the format would be pretty much the same (entitled adult child out and about in life).
  9. I agree it would be interesting to have a change up and see more of what goes on behind the scenes and in practices. Submitted audition videos can be edited so I would assume they would be more likely to accept people that have been to the prep classes or that are known to TPTB already. It would seem to me to be much easier on TPTB to go with an all vet squad or if they don't have enough for a complete squad due to retirement invite a few that were cut in the last year or two onto the team. Another option is to just move auditions to late June take fewer people into training camp and cut training camp to say 6-8 weeks it would still work out just fine. Just have CMT in there filming more often.
  10. Okay, I'm going to maybe, possibly, give Jessa an out here: or actually I'm giving myself an "out". I'm sitting at home comfy in my grey tshirt and pink pants. Hubby decides hey, let's take the kiddos outside! So i just grab whatever sweater is hanging on the hook and slip on the sandals, not expecting to take a picture and post it 10 minutes later. 🙋‍♀️
  11. No, she would be fired pretty quickly no matter where she was hired as someone would complain to the employer just as people are doing now to the influence products. She's pretty much unemployable and really only has the option of going to business for herself (if she actually had a talent) and selling her product to her other fundies. Which is what Erin did with her piano CDs.
  12. I think if you stare at any of those pictures long enough you notice all of the things that make them look "off". aka the scrunching down unnecessarily, the same color and hair styles, the crossing of the legs (universal sign for I gotta pee), the too large sleeves, the too small shorts, the bursting at the seams bras, and underweight bodies. But if you just look at the overall picture you see a pretty group of women. ☺️
  13. I'm not sure if they need a "shake up" or not. Do I want to see some go, you betcha, however, You need a "base" of 36 women that can do the DCC style on the field for games, even if they don't do it that great. Then of those 36 you need 16 or so more specialized/technical dancers for show group. Then you also need 10-15 "ambassadors" that are photogenic yet also have the ability to talk to media or "socialize" with the general public or with high society at specialized events. It's very hard to find 36 people who can fit those different criteria which is why you have the "blenders" that are on the team year after year as they may not be the "best" performing DCC, but they are good for selling calendars or as ambassadors for the charity and other events. At least that's my 2 cents.
  14. well in Michelle's defense "grandma Duggar" was already taken. So Michelle would need another name. It's the same in my current family Great grandparents have already taken the "Grandma insert last name" so yes the new grandparents need a different name.
  15. I don't wear make up, so it might be my naivete, but I swear it looks like someone hit her in the face, due to the way she is wearing her cheek make up; it looks to me like a bruised cheek bone as well the bruise moves up along her hairline. Her forehead is pale white as well as under her eyes and nose. it just looks "off" to me. Also, she's wearing jeans and a casual top, so why all the "heavy" night time eye and cheek colors? 🤷‍♀️
