I have no idea what is going on with the edit. All I know as someone local is Asuelo is liked , works and they look happy. There is for sure an edit, between the time frame, that clinic visit, and the trip. I kind of think maybe Kalini wants to be on TV (and her sister) and Asuelo is told just to show up and act. He seems very hurt and confused why people hate him right now, it is kind of sad. He says it is TV and he is a nice person, why the hate. I just hope whatever the story is they know what they are doing.
As I have said before he works and not for a yogurt shop. Last year they filmed the Axe date around April 2019 and measles outbreak was Sept/October 2019 (and the birthday was end of Jan 2020). Asuleo worked from April to October almost everyday with a long commute (about 2 hours) 7 days a week 10 hours a day. This job was at a national park. There was a huge banner at the end of my street and I know people who worked there and went to the shows/meals/classes. I wonder how COVID would change it. Today they banner is back up and the shows start tomorrow. Since they are open to the public I assume it is okay to put the name of his group, you can clearly see he is performing, the ticket cost and he teaches classes. It is less because of COVID, last year it was full days 7 days a week . It is called Siva Pasefika, they have a website and facebook page. I did not want to link because it is a site that sells tickets but you can see he is very much a part of it. He is fact is really like the "lead" since he is the youngest one from the islands, the other young men have been raised mostly in the US and have learned form their family.
Also you can look up the Springdale, where he is performing and teaching is one of the worst COVID spots in Utah, the only place south of SLC requiring masks. Most of the counties down here are green (new normal) but Springdale because of all the tourist has a very high COVID rate and no medical facilities. I am surprised if Kalini is really such a germ freak, she is allowing him to go? If we go along with TLC's story that he usually works little and helps so little, why would she let him go to a virus hot spot when they are living in a very safe area with few cases, when he could be at home helping her? I really think this season was all because of her one post complaining about being a tired mom last summer when he was working. None of her cute family posts or videos got picked up by the media, but she posted how he was not home, she had the kids and was overwhelmed and she got lots of attention and articles and suddenly wanted to film her again? I just do not know why they go along with the story. Either they are fake in public, at church, at work, in the community, or on TV they are fake?
As for her job. Southern Utah is full of programs for troubled teens. They branched out to many states and countries, of of the most talked about was in Samoa. I have no idea if she was connected to these but so many people are. In Southern Utah most Samoans if not in the construction industry (like her dad is) , they are in the trouble teen industry. It is possible Meri from sister wives when the show first started was working for the same trouble teen "company". It is a very complex network starting in Southern Utah, started by Mormons and Samoan did the hard work, I dug into it after first moving here after hearing some horror stories and had to kind of stop, because it seemed everywhere I turned someone was involved at some level or their family was.
Here is a picture of him leading the group. He is not dumb or slow. He gives talks to large groups of people and is well liked.
