  1. Hypocrite Christians. Why do people watch this crap? Aren’t Christians supposed to not idolize things other than god, yet these people make a “reality” TV show to be idolized.

    It’s 2022 people. Grow up

  2. What’s the big deal he was goofing off with his brother and his family. No harm done. His Brother didn’t mind.
