Writing is fine, Characters are awful

I have no beef with the writers and host; the story was well presented and produced. But the subject matter? If I never hear the word “influencer” again, it will be too soon. What a horrid, vapid, materialistic group of humans. 🤮 I don’t have anyone like this in my life, and my life is in no way improved by having learned they exist.

LOL

I just came here to laugh at Tanya’s obvious review. She is everything that is wrong with American culture.

akosc0022 ,

If you spend your life watching reality TV, this is for you

Otherwise you won’t be able to make it through all the episodes because you realize that basically everyone introduced is a scam artist and a horrible person
