Even though I credit Jax Taylor’s antics for the initial success of Vanderpump Rules, I don’t really feel like anyone was asking for this spin off series with Brittany Cartwright. Obviously everyone loves Brittany, but this show seems like an obvious second coming of the Simple Life, but with romance thrown in. I don’t know how entertaining it will be to watch Jax struggle with farm chores while he tries to find himself in Kentucky.
Nevertheless, I’m still going to watch because I tune into pretty much every show Bravo has to offer. A first look at the series has been released and it’s pretty much exactly what we all expected.
Bravo shared a clip from Jax & Brittany Take Kentucky with Jax attempting to chop down a tree with an ax while Brittany and her father watched forever and ever. Eventually her father takes a chain saw and chops down the tree with no effort. It wasn’t exactly ground-breaking stuff, but Brittany referring to her boyfriend as “Lumber Jax” was pretty cute.
Just based on that one snippet, the show doesn’t look like something that’s going to take off, but it’s just what the fandom needs to occupy our DVR’s during the summer. Jax and Brittany are always entertaining on Vanderpump Rules, but this fish out of water scenario is just a little trite. A real spin off based on their actual lives would have been way more interesting- at least in my opinion. Still- like I said- I have to admit that I will be watching it anyway. I would never miss out on anything Vanderpump Rules adjacent.
TELL US- WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE PREVIEW? DO YOU PLAN TO WATCH JAX & BRITTANY’S SPIN OFF SHOW?
