Unexpected viewers cannot believe what has transpired this season especially when it comes to Jason Korpi. He has exhibited such poor behavior, fans have actually called for his removal. They have now gone so far as to call the series the ‘most disturbing’ one on TLC. Do they have good reasoning for this label?
Introducing Jason Korpi On Unexpected– The Biggest Mistake?
As with all reality shows, there is always that one cast member who ruffles feathers. For Season 5 of the hit series about teen pregnancy, it just so happened to be Jason. Prior to joining, he was already under investigation for holes punched into a wall that were seen on his TikTok videos. Still, the show went on and he appeared alongside his seventeen-year-old girlfriend Kylen Smith. It was clear from the beginning that he was controlling the process. He did not really want her parents involved as he felt they treated her like a child. It was more important that they hung out with his friends. As for their birth plan, he was adamant that they had a homebirth so he could be directly involved. This was not what Kylen wanted but she went along with it.
When she went into labor, they went to the facility but he would not allow he a cervical exam so it was unclear how far dilated she was. As she was in the tub, he was off to the side eating and criticizing her pain. Jason did not want to take her to the hospital when the midwives deemed it necessary. Once they got there, an epidural was clearly the best option but he said no. He did not want the baby to be born drugged up but finally, Kylen stood up to him and got it. She knew it was the only way for her to be able to actually push the baby out. It was such an issue for Jason that security was called and he was removed from the hospital. Now fans are back at it with a whole lot to say about the series.
Could This Be The Worst Show?
A petition has been started to remove Jason from Unexpected. Fans have vented their frustrations with his abusive and manipulative behavior since the season began. Now a Reddit thread has begun where the show has been deemed the “most disturbing” on TLC. It is not just Jason making viewers angry though. They also struggle with many sub-cast members like Lawrence and Emersyn’s mom. This is how the thread started and fellow Redditors chimed in. “I can’t even watch this episode because of Jason. And Kylen not doing anything. It’s too disturbing. She needs a wake up call,” one noted.
Another added: “Yeah I don’t watch this show because I just straight up find it to be exploitative (same with teen mom) but I watched the last couple just to see what kind of an a-hole this kid is.” Finally, a lot of people feel Jason’s parents are his enablers and the reason he is the way he is. Apparently, someone read that they are in NYC so it is believed he has been able to film the tell-all. Whether or not he will be called out for his issues is yet to be seen.
