The Mama June Reveal: Mama June is the New Jared of Subway

I’m not trying to take anything away from Mama June’s weight loss.  Congratulations to her and more power to she and her family as she tries to improve her health.   But I just don’t understand how there’s an entire show about this.  We already have Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian.   We already have The Biggest Loser.   We even have shows like My 600lb Life to highlight the dangers of obesity.   Why oh why are we fixated on this one particular person, Mama June?  Seriously, I don’t get it.

It’s like when Subway just decided that Jared would be their guy.  I mean no one could have predicted he’d be in jail right now.  Let’s hope that Mama June doesn’t suffer the same fate.  But is that what’s going on here?  Is Mama June the new Jared of Subway?  I think she is.  There are thousands upon thousands of obese people out there who could have been chosen for their own show.  I just find it curious that the woman who is now the virtual poster child of weight loss is one of the most rural, white trashiest (and that’s exactly how the show wants you to think of her), outspoken, animated figures on TV.

What’s the message here?  “I was white trash and now I’m not.  You can be too!”  I’m still trying to wrap my head around this.  Still though, I think Subway should be giving Mama June a call.  Like I said, good for her.  I’m just still trying to understand all of this.  Can someone enlighten me please?  Like why isn’t Jonah Hill getting more attention?  Shouldn’t he have his own show?  What makes Mama June so special?
