Well... a least in the video Mimei admitted she has lackluster make up skills. I guess it wasn't supposed to be taken seriously as a tutorial of any kind because it was acknowledged as bad makeup even by the video maker. It was just for the viewer's entertainment? Idk.
I didn't like how she was forced onto the rollercoaster. Idk how much she hates them but I get sick on rollercoasters and I would fight anyone just just to get away from one. What annoyed me was when Chris said 'did you get over your fear' after the rollercoaster (???); it's a fear for a reason, because it's fucking terrifying and unsafe. Also Sharla never had a backpack in the whole video, it was only Chris who had the neon orange monster, and I guess after their cycle trip he left his bag with the cameraman. And when they do certain shots they're standing still, so the orange monster is probably on the ground. They were also so mismatched lol, Sharla was wearing something fashionable/ casual, while Chris was in shorts & trainers.
Idk... I think there's a logic to him making 2 trailers because the trailers are quite different. The first one was just 'I am making this series about Jake Paul' and that was pretty much it. The extended one had more information (like he was speaking to Jake Paul's family as well, it was 8 episodes etc.). I know that for movie trailers there's usually a format where the first one that's just minimum spoilers and the second one actually tells you the story, so if you want minimum spoilers and just some hype, you only watch the first one. I think it's ad revenues too, but I feel like the trailers were pretty different in their tone/ content.
Was it Dante or Mikhail? I know that Dante has a rep for being dumb and Mikhail has the rep for being shitty. It seems like Mikhail wants to be popular and is quite a bit more ruthless in trying to achieve this than either Duncan or Dante. I also don't follow Dante because his videos are in full Japanese (and even if I could fully understand Japanese his videos don't particularly interest me anyway... ), so I'm lacking the full details on the family drama too. Yea it really is... like when Duncan bought so many Dragon Ball wafers and scratch cards I was kinda surprised, to be honest... it's not like they can't get any enjoyment from life, but with 3 cats, Duncan's comic book habit and the 2 of them quite frequently saying things are expensive, it was just a bad thing to spend money on (even if it was for a video). I mean Mimei had to crowd fund Cinnamon's vet fees, and I don't think that shows entirely responsible spending habits.
Eh, I doubt he does the videos that go well with Duncan/ Mimei. Dante is pretty much mainstream for YT Japan, and Duncan is the ultimate outlier as he's super critical of UUUM. I wouldn't be surprised if there was some unspoken drama, idk if Dante was ever implicated in that event where Mimei was home alone and Duncan's family tried to barge in (I don't think Dante was but the people involved weren't really specified).
Yea sorry I should've given some context on why it's strange for Duncan to do product stuff. It's also because Dante did a lot of product videos which got him popular on YT and i remember there being drama between the brothers because their mum wanted Duncan to be much more main stream like Dante but Duncan refused.
Duncan... is kinda turning into a weird product review channel lately? He's unboxed some Dragon Ball wafers (on his 2nd channel), bought a Kamen Rider toy, bought a manga on how to be a YTer, bought Dragon Ball Scratchcards, and he does his 100 yen toy shop stuff too.
She turned out to be that psycho ex. She had (has?) stalker levels of obsession over Shine and basically promised a reveal video with everything shitty Shine had done... but she herself had no receipts. She did it for attention/ to get back at Shine; I don't think he even did anything against the law with her b/c she's a year older than him according to lolcow, so whatever pedophilia claims she personally had are bust (Shine did flirt with other girls who were underaged when he was 18/19 though & definitely slept with a 15 y/o, she just wasn't one of them). She basically jumped at a chance to satisfy her own vendetta/ pettiness/ creepiness, and ruined it for the rest of the girls when she lied about having anything on Shine and threw everyone else's credibility under the bus. She also used to physically abuse Shine, and hits her partners in general (I remember seeing screenshots of her tumblr).
If Jobo cleaned up he'd be decent but dear God... he is putting less and less effort in as time goes by and it is really showing. Also maybe it's that mid-20s reality hitting him in the face when your metabolism slowly goes to shit and you can't eat the same crap you used (learn how to meal prep & be responsible Johnson). Like compared to Chris, who has talked his struggles with weight, I have so much respect for him trying and slowly succeeding at bettering himself (I also wish Chris well on his bike trip around Japan cuz his ass is gonna be in shreds RIP).
I don't think this is entirely true. I think Taylor's goals just changed as time passed (it happens to many people). I remember a comment from her somewhere (on one of her YT videos) that she said being a professional model isn't realistic for her because she was mid-late 20s by then, and while I think part of her wanted to be on the cat walk in Paris and in the world of high-fashion, she knew it wasn't realistic (I can only dream what it must be like for the 15 y/os that get scouted and groomed into this world, eating disorders, shady deals... etc. etc.). I guess when she started getting traction on YouTube, she saw her chance at achieving something similar via a different route. I do agree she copies a lot of YTers though. : /
