When Jazz said that she thought she had a venue, I thought it should have been a local bar that features drag queens. If that were the case, the bar could have helped her with promotion and rounding up performers. Also, the obvious answer to the fundraising was announcing the financial need on a reality show- except that this show is aired well after the events they’re portraying.
I didn’t like Jacky’s pessimistic attitude re: Jazz’s success at Harvard. She might NOT fail. She might succeed.
A couple of episodes ago, Jeanette said that if JoJo didn’t want the implants that they could just be taken out. No ma’am. It’s not that simple. It would be major surgery and disfiguring. I think that JoJo’s grandma’s fear might be that she’s worried that JoJo would change her mind about transitioning and then end up stuck with breasts. It’s about the only issue that hasn’t been brought up.
JoJo’s mom argued that the surgery would enable her daughter to look down at herself and feel “whole”. She herself said that it would be years before JoJo could have bottom surgery. How exactly does she know when her daughter might feel whole ?
I know Jeanette had the plastic surgery consult in an earlier episode, but I couldn’t help thinking that if she lost the cheap flea market jewelry, the bedazzled readers, the pastel eye shadow, and the cold shoulder tops, she could make a better judgement on plastic surgery. All that crap ages her. Also, she’s obviously overweight. Is she contemplating losing weight ? If she is, weight loss of 40 pounds or so after the surgery would definitely affect the results.
Watching the binge eating scene (scripted or not) made me wonder if anyone has ever told Jazz no ? Even herself ? One of the things that separates her from the participants on My 600-Pound Life is the ability to say no. I’m not normally one to advocate for therapy, but if the binge eating isn’t for the show, she needs to seek help for it.
