It's difficult to think of a real life equivalent of Tahani because Kamilah makes no sense. She's an art world darling and a pop star and who remembers what else. Like, Madonna if people took her attempts to be deep more seriously. Or Angelina Jolie + Lady Gaga? Anyway, I was thinking of Pippa Middleton as a Tahani analog. I've heard of her but I wouldn't fawn over her. And while I watch fewer British shows now, even when I was watching QI and Buzzcocks and X Factor UK, there were plenty of people from Made in Chelsea and I'm a Celebrity and Big Brother who would be well-known socialites and tabloid fodder in the UK who I'd never heard of.
I guess it depends on how much of what we've been shown/told that we can trust. Like, we've seen Michael "torturing" the humans in his fake Good Place, though arguably it's considerably lighter torture than they could expect in the Bad Place. We saw Michael at a desk job before he got promoted to fake architect but he could conceivably have been involved in regular demon torture. I can't recall if we've gotten confirmation of that but if we have, that would suggest he is really a demon. I've expressed that I'm tired of him getting dunked on all the time. Him not being a demon would explain why he's so bad at comebacks or being all that evil with the other demons now that he has nothing to hide. It does not explain why so many people would be lying to cover up that Michael is really an angel (Shawn, Gen, Trevor, Vicky, etc.) since we have plenty of scenes where they wouldn't be lying for the benefit of the humans. So plenty of people seem to think Michael is a demon. With my rudimentary knowledge of Catholicism, aren't demons supposed to be fallen angels? I can see it basically as the show has laid it out. He was always a demon but demons have the potential to change. They aren't all just comically evil like Trevor. And by helping the humans, he can earn angel status. Or get into the Good Place. Whatever. This chance for redemption wasn't a system that was always in place but it will be going forward.
We frequent different internet places. I've heard all kinds of synonyms for trash and garbage used to describe people for years.
