“It’s not about just shouting Hermès as a fan, but you can clearly see that most of the time the dads make sure the kids don’t hate their moms in this situation, but when does that happen? conversely, most mothers, especially these days, poison their children with hatred towards their fathers.”
“Now I know where he gets his kindness from, like father like son, well done.”
“Tell me who else deserves to win this show if not this guy…. When he speaks, people listen intently both inside and outside the house…. You are a legendary brother.”
