Seriously, I believe you have to have some type of condition or tragic backstory to get on this cycle.
Renee has a phobia of things disguised as other things (or something like that), Kanani is deathly afraid of clowns, Nina has half a lung that can explode underwater, Don has PTSD, Alex has a heart condition that can kill her.
Chris is homeless and his mom hates him, Jourdan was in an abusive relationship.
Oh but let’s not forget, Marvin’s dad was a janitor. A JANITOR! What an injustice. It really puts the exploding lung and all that nonsense into perspective
