The network, which loves to showcase different lifestyles and oddities, is following up the hot mess of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, a show about a six-year-old beauty "queen" and her "interesting" family with Big Tiny, a show about the world's smallest siblings.
The siblings - Bridgette and Bradley Jordan - are primordial dwarves. Bri is 27 inches tall and weighs 18 pounds and Brad is 38 inches tall and weighs 35 pounds. Due to their conditions, they live at home with their mother Christy, a nurse, and Brandi, their older sister.
The Jordan siblings encounter numerous day-to-day challenges we take for granted, such as showering (they use the kitchen sink), driving (they need car seats) or going shopping (they cannot lift a lot of things).
Their condition does not stop them from participating in sports or chasing other dreams they have.
Here is a video showcasing the Jordans:
I have mixed feelings about this. It's good to expand people's horizons and teach them that we all don't come in one set package, but is it going to just lead to these dwarves being mocked or made fun of? It's one thing to make fun of the Honey Boo Boo family, because they have made themselves this way. But the Jordans can't help how they were born. If this show is more of a documentary than reality TV, it could do a lot of good. But TLC seems more interested in pointing out what makes us different and these people odd or unique than what makes us the same - that these are living, breathing people who deal with the same struggles, feelings and emotions that everyone else does.
