I'm still recovering from that show, wow! First of all, did Kody actually have the gall to tell viewers that everything the Brown family has touched turns to gold? That they have the Midas touch and that's why investors should give them money? Talk about believing your own press.
Don't they ever watch Shark Tank? Channeling Mr. Wonderful: Your business only gets interest because of your current low-level fame. As soon as the TV show is gone, the interest in the business is gone. You have a large segment of society that is biased against your lifestyle and would never purchase from you. Plus, I can go to craft shows every weekend of the year and see comparable jewelry for much lower prices, and I'm not having a lifestyle agenda shoved down my throat there. You have no sales, your conversion rate is horrible and your only solution to those issues is to get more money. My money. I love my money. If I gave it to you, it would die. I can't allow that to happen. For that reason, I'm out.
And, oh boy, that presentation. Robyn gets the ugly cry (nice bit of self-awareness there Robyn), Meri acts like she's reciting a memorized speech, Kody does his usual bouncing off the walls over-the-top smarmy sales pitch, Janelle sounds competent but relied on the "I can get you that answer" and "it's in the package" attitude a bit too much, and Christine tells the investors that if they gave them too much money, they (the Browns) would get lazy and not put out as much effort. Unfortunately, I fear that this is all a set-up by TLC to keep interest and the Brown's will get their money (from somebody) and Robyn's Closet will keep on going. And we'll see more ugly man jewelry on Kody every week.
At least TLC is following the formula. Find an odd family living an odd lifestyle, highlight their struggles, make them rich and famous, show us an odd rich and famous family doing rich and famous people things like traveling, getting $2.5 million from investors, sending their kids to expensive schools, oh, and throw in some ceremony or celebration with an arduous time constraint. Show one of the "stars" saying the time honored phrase "I don't know if we're going to get it done in time." And, cue Robyn's tears.
