To be included in our next batch of prompts, make sure to follow us on FR-tv & on instagram at Let us know what you think of the Middle Ground look & if you enjoyed this episode below!

    • Jubilee do a kids of police officers vs kids of convicted felons

    • How long did these people talk for?

    • @Senzve ツ id prefer more group promos and letting them discuss as a group longer then the individual cut scenes

    • Do body modifications vs. none

    • I'd love to see a Middle Ground on the two sides of the Hong Kong protests (HK supporters vs mainland China supporters)

  • I'm sorry, I'm only 53 seconds into this video and I already had to stop, the first thing that comes into her mind about runway models is Victoria's Secret? Girl you're way off track

  • You can tell why the black guy is a runway model, he looks like a sculpture

  • The instagrammers look so trashy meanwhile the runway models look graceful

  • I reckon the Victoria girl buys her instagram followers because most of her followers are bots/photo less accounts....... makes sense because he engagement on her photos are so low

  • That guy not just sexy outside, but sexy in mind

  • It was kind of interesting how they discussed surgery and photoshopping. The models seemed more body positive than the instagrammers.

  • To be fair Instagram followers follow most models based on there booty or chest popping. The Runway Models usually are there to display costumes for what most people can't afford

  • That male model...!!!! Wow... graceful

  • Why was Jessica wearing that oversized jacket 💀💀

  • 2023+ vs everyone else

  • The runway models know what they are actually talking about

  • Runway models are better

  • She was saying that she was against plastic surgeries like body enhancement not face stuff

  • Lmaoo what’s up with Victoria?? She gives the Asian community a bad rep, what a shame 😩 her Instagram is generic ABG stuff that encourages yellow fever and micro aggressions towards Asian women BUT Jessica on the other hand though, totally wholesome!!! She made my day 🙏🏽❤️

  • Why does it feel like the ig girls sound like those loud valley popular and the runway models are those who are just the quiet ones who get the work done? With the exception of chantelle i think she's a darling.

  • Ig models are hypocritical af lol

  • I noticed that the runway models are wayyy more refined than the instagram models.. their opinions were well thought out

  • “I’m against plastic surgery but I’ve had it”

  • That lady is not 29. Sorry. Did she say 29?! Edit: I am 30. That lady is at least 40! Re-edit: She probably meant 39...49

  • My middle name is Alizée! And Tiana :p buh wow I never seen anybody who has tht name before. I always wanted to name my 1st girl Alizée

  • Ugh Gary is so insightful go off

  • i just loved the way the runway models carried themselves- they were so classy and elegant.

  • Yah come back to me when you can find the food and a workout to grow boobs lol

  • The last segment from the 34 year old runway model is what the gay community has to do with each other all the time AH that guy likes me but now he doesn’t NEXT

  • Victoria's IG is selling the fetishized American Asian women

  • runway models are gorgeous. i always thought so

  • “You would refuse a big paycheck” 😱 I’m shook, this is why I’m not on social media everything is just an illusion. ✌️people are just there to get paid

  • Jessica and Gary are so beautiful in such a unique way

  • Insta models depend on being loved, constantly reaching and social climbing. Runway models are professionals, who use Instagram for their art and portfolio. I have a friend who’s a runway model and she’s too BUSY to be worried about followers. She’s running from her waitressing job to shoots to runways and can’t be bothered to worry about follower counts. She posts what she wants. Influencers are super obsessed with who’s happy and the next drama and hot button way to signal they’re the most body positive or whatever the most lucrative “topic” is that month

  • How are Instagram models any better/more inclusive than agency models? They're expected to have small waists, hourglass figures, big bums and big lips - still unrealistic expectations 🙄😑

  • Can someone explain how Mariam has 150k+ followers yet several of her posts have LESS than 1000 likes?????

  • Being a model isnt easy and because it's a job and models work so hard for every dollar. Whatever I'm baise I'm a model so I feel like Instagram models are different from models.

  • Feels like a lot of people tend to dismiss Instagram Models/Influencers immediately, but I don't think it's fair to ignore the efforts Instagram models put in to be considered successful. I don't think either is easier than the other, it really depends on how well you are at what you do, not every runway models can gather the same amount of following if they also had no one to package them to look like the gems they are, whereas not every Instagram model can handle being on a runway. Runway models are hand-picked by the industry and the industry packages them to look the way they are. (Makeup, hair styling, clothing, photography, photo re-touch) They undergo tough training and are held to a very high standard in many ways. Whereas Instagram models have to do all that themselves before getting any recognition or opportunities for paid jobs. But in comparison, they have much more flexibility and freedom. I know it's easy to look at IG models and just think, 'oh please all they had to do was look pretty and show some boobs to get followers', and you look at the runway models and feel that they had more poise and are the more 'legit' definition of models. But this almost feels just like FR-tvrs not being considered actual celebrities by mainstream media because they make being famous feel more accessible rather than making it look like an exclusive deal

  • I like gary. I like his honesty.

  • Jessica sounds just like Gigi Hadid

  • Asian girls are blessed in so many ways it just depends what you like 😭😭😭

  • Well , I think we are not born or genetically modified to become size negative or positive ( no offense to anyone who is reading this). We can maintain our health and become fit in long term just change your curriculum. Ofcourse it would be different matter if you are are born with an abnormality. The fact that runway models are giving the ig models and open area to land on is great. Why even Photoshop your body just go outside , workout, run , play? Healthy mind and body as a consequence. 'Too lazy to reshape yourself'.

  • Anyone can ba an Instagram model that runway model was absolutely right and she should have expanded more on that though Tho it might sound a little rude towards the ig models but it’s true

  • Didn't Mariam just say she's against plastic surgery? 7:51 isn't the opposite happening we are expecting worse from runway models but reality is just opposite

  • IG models trying to convince runway models they are equal but not succeeding for 22 min

  • The insta models are so contracting to themself . They don’t socialize enough like the runway models smh they are so in this bubble of social media portrayal .. damn

  • The IG models say the industry is moving away from PS but they all agree its okay...

  • These instagram „models“ think that they’re real hardworking models 🤡😂 shut your facetune looking ass up

  • This is the way I see the difference between insta models & runway / professional models.. Take a camera with no filter or photoshop, take a close up of the face. Like an audition photo. THEN you’ll see the difference between proper models and “social media iNfLueNceRs”

  • Anyone else clock Gary's face when he saw them walk up for the cosmetic surgery thing 😂😂😂😭

  • Mariyam is 29 ? Chanatelle is 24 ? No you both are liers.

  • Mariam: "I'm against plastic surgery". Also Mariam: "I've had cosmetic surgery". 🤷‍♀️

  • The runway models totally thought they photoshopped

  • Some of the runway models were rude

  • I knew i recognized ailize !

  • Gary is so underweight that’s not healthy

  • I honestly side with runway models

  • Mariam: I honestly was insecure about my bump Mariam: but I was getting not the nice compliments about it Mariam: but I loved it Mariam: but I removed it

  • runway models are so respectful and just beautiful people inside and out. instagram models are not real models

  • 🤣 these two categories of people are not comparable ... it is extremely rare to be able to cut it as a runway model. Instagram “influencers” are a dime a dozen

  • Whoooa I thought Miriam was more like 39

  • LOL when the runway model with the short dark hair is like "you take away the plastic surgery, and what do you have?" and the blonde-haired IG model gets all defensive and is like "actually we are straying away from that, not all of us have plastic surgery" and then 2/3 of the IG models have had plastic surgery lol does she not see the irony?

  • I feel like we just love to hate the ig influencers bc they aren’t “natural” but what’s wrong with makeup? The professional models even admitted that not anyone could be a model. They are the toxic ones. When girls see them they think that you have to be a size 0 and 5’7 when the ig influencers are plus sized and thicker. I feel like the professional models are more toxic because their image is skinny and tall.

  • The ig models were kinda judgmental while the runway model were really chill 🥴
