Although Jason Genova is the main attraction, he does not provide the ments alone. There are so many important and colourful characters in the Jason Genova saga that one can lose track of them all, so this handy guide will help.
The great thing about the Jason Genova Show is that it is a
partially interactive sitcom; you too can message Andrew over
YouTube, make the trip down to "The Mecca of Bodybuilding"
Delray Beach, Florida, and be featured in a Delray Misfits
video. But be warned: if you get yourself involved in The Ment,
you may be in it for life. Like the Eagles say, you can check
out any time you like, but you can never leave. You will receive
The Mark of Genova, which dooms you to an eternal existence of
being phoned by Jason Genova to let you know that he's looking
lean bro, and asking if you can spare any money for him. In
addition, Genova's Witnesses will forever haunt your YouTube
channel and other social media with the cries of, "Where's
Jason? Where's Jason?"
The original cast of the first Delray Misfits episode Big Richard, Saul, Andrew and Mike
The Delray Misfits is a YouTube series that followed the escapades of various characters working out in World Gym (formerly Delray Fitness) in Delray Beach, Florida. It was a spin off of the Jason Genova YouTube channel after the "Chad betrayal camera incident" in which Jason split with his longtime producer and friend over a cheap digital camera. Fans urged Andrew to continue filming without Jason, and he decided to make videos centred around Big Richard, with some other characters in the gym acting as a supporting cast (some who were known from previous Jason Genova videos, and some new ones). Delray Misfits episode 1 made its debut and soon became a lost episode; it had to be taken down due to Big Richard going on an extended rant about how he loves eating pussy.
Andrew eventually forgave Jason, and his biggest star Dark Lord Spaniard joined the rest of the Delray Misfits. The legendary Delray Fitness/World Gym, with its signature ugly green glow and lax rules eventually closed down, and the Misfits were scattered across various gyms across Delray Beach. The core members are currently Andrew, Jason, Brad, Big Richard and Big Lenny, who work out in LA Fitness, Busy Body Fitness and even Planet Fitness. In a video shot outside of Lenny's filthy house when they had gathered together to clean it out, Brad eloquently summed up the relationship that the Misfits have with each other: "By the way viewers, this is called tough love. If you don't like the way we break each other's balls, go fuck yourself! It's called tough love. Leonard lives like an animal I'm gonna tell him he lives like a fuckin animal. And we appreciate that about each other."
Sweet Prince Andrew: John the Baptist to Jason Genova's Jesus, Goebbels to Jason's Hitler, Flava Flav to ... you get the picture.
Andrew Fiedelman aka Prince Andrew aka DelDrew is Jason's long suffering friend, cameraman, confidante, minder, teacher, trainer, brother, father-figure, producer and promoter. Before Andrew came into Jason's life, Jason was a smelly delusional fat boy who was mocked by all and taken advantage of by his old producer Jonas. Granted he's still all of the above, but he is in a better situation now thanks to Andrew. He is considered by Genova's Witnesses to be the model of integrity, because he has never once asked Jason for money in exchange for filming him, nor has he even asked for a cut of the YouTube ad money, which is estimated to have made tens of thousands of dollars since its inception. He has a mysterious personal life, but it is known that he works at a country club. After a persistent YouTube commenter kept accusing him of being gay, he revealed that he has a daughter who lives in another state and now seems rather bitter toward women, living the "Men Going Their Own Way" lifestyle. Andrew is the original Misfit, originating the concept by recognizing that the characters in the gym and their interactions were comedy gold. He filmed and edited all of Jason Genova's videos until the two of them split over the "Chad incident" where Jason ignored his longtime friend's warnings not to give a stranger the password to all his accounts after being tempted by a camera. After that, Andrew started up the Delray Misfits series proper, but did eventually reconcile with Jason, although he no longer edited and uploaded his videos for him. Andrew's humourous commentary overlays every video. He knew of Genova before 2009 when he used to work out at the same Gold's Gym (which would later become Delray Fitness); he tried to ignore his delusional ramblings about being a future IFBB pro bodybuilder, but little did he know that the Sith Lord's innocuous request to film him doing leg press just this one time would turn into such ment. Here is a comment that Andrew left on an old My Story Era video made by Genova's arch rival Josh Foxx, before he became Jason's producer:
"as a member of golds since 2002,everything Josh says is 100% right. 3 words avoid eye contact!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! otherwise this fool will follow you around the gym like a duckling, telling you how hes a celebrity, a pro bodybuilder, a monster, a freak and on and on and on and on. poor fella's a good kid, but seriously delusional and needs to surround himself with people who wont bs him to his face about becoming a bodybuilder and then laugh behind his back."
Ironically, Andrew and the Misfits ended up becoming those "good people."
"Wait, what the hell did you just say? 'I'd flex but I like shit?' No it says, 'I'd flex but I like this shirt.' It doesn't say shit Jason!" --Andrew
Big Richard aka Big Richard is an old school bodybuilder/finance worker who has been around the block as regards to everything. A constant source of real talk, honesty and funny anecdotes, he is known for his dirty mind and quick mouth, not giving special treatment to anyone and telling it like it is every time, even to so called "disabled" people like Genova and Mike. Big Richard quickly rose to a fan favourite after confronting Jason who had, the night before, been messaging Big Rich's daughter. He told Jason that he knew he was "Sayin shit to her, that I don't fuckin like. Vulgar shit." He threatened to tear his throat out, shit down his neck, cut him up into pieces and dump him in the Everglades. Jason had the piss scared out of him and avoided coming to the gym at the same time as Richard for a week. After the duo moved past this though they formed a close relationship and it was evident that Big Richard had a soft spot for Genova, wanting to see him succeed and be happy in life, even if he had blunt ways of saying it.
Big Richard is well known and the most common place to find him is in the smith machine benching three plates with his legs in the air (he claims that people who place their feet on the ground are cheating). He often wears tank tops and can be easily identified since he is approximately six foot two, very muscular and has some skin defects that were confirmed to be skin cancer; he said that he got into weight training because as a teenager he was skinny and got picked on, so he decided: never again. While living the bodybuilding lifestyle, he would often go out in the sun and get tanned, and this eventually led to him getting skin cancer. He vanished from World Gym to recover from it, promising to return on numerous occasions, but no-showed each time. Andrew expressed doubt about ever seeing the GOAT Delray Misfit ever again.
A whole year passed, and it turns out that Big Richard had
actually whooped cancer's ass and dumped it in the Everglades.
He returned in Delray Misfits episode 100, and now resembled The
Terminator due to some operations done on his face. The
atmosphere in World Gym had grown progressively more chaotic and
outrageous with him gone, and the return of the alpha wolf
restored some order. After the closure of World Gym he moved to
LA Fitness but was thrown out after confronting a non-disabled
guy who parked in the handicapped parking spot. Big Richard is
currently forced to work out in Planet Fitness of all places.
"And what's all this I hear about you sticking toy trucks up your ass, Jason?" --Big Richard
"Nothing is better than ass licking. Asshole is really good.
Except you can get salmon-- not salmonella, E. coli. I've
vomited before, I vomited all day, but it was worth it."
A mild mannered mystery author with cerebral palsy who needs a cane to get around, but he is deceptively witty and was the only one who actually had the balls to trade barbs with Big Richard. He is likely the most intelligent Misfit, graduating Summa Cum Laude from The University of South Florida. He unfortunately moved away and is no longer with the Misfits.
During Delray Misfits episode 100, Mike made a special guest
appearance via satellite. His long time rival Big Richard said,
"Mike, I don't know if you're still using that cane that I was
gonna wrap around your neck and choke you with, but I miss you
buddy, and if I could see you in the gym, I'd come up and say
hello to you and BITCH SLAP YA, you son of a bitch!"
"Fat Fucking Lenny" might be the only person who is actually more insane and delusional than Jason. He has bizarre facial twitches, sudden and extreme changes in facial expression and frequently challenges anyone to fight him in the parking lot in return for $1,000. He once called out the Hells Angels on camera, calling them the "Queers Angels" which prompted former Hells Angel Mel Chancey to plead with him to apologize because he feared that they would actually kill him for it. A fellow /bodybuilder powerlifter like Jason, he is about 6' 3" and weighs over 300 pounds, yet still competes in bodybuilding shows hoping to win the Reverse Ninja Turtle category. In all seriousness and without exaggeration, he has the worst case of roid gut/Palumboism in the entire known world, according to Lui Marco, an expert on the subject. Lenny does not see it that way and instead thinks that he has the biggest, most muscular ab muscles of all time. He lifted up his shirt and declared: "What Tom Platz was to legs ... I AM TO ABS!!" His gut is so legendary that his condition has now been dubbed Lennyism rather than Palumboism.
A police report was discovered from 2013, describing an incident where Lenny was arrested for refusing to leave a mall. He boasted that no one was big enough to take him down, and the police had to use three sets of handcuffs to restrain him. On another occasion, someone brought a taser to World Gym, and Lenny asked to be shot with it in the parking lot. When he was hit, he staggered backwards a bit and then ripped out the wires without even falling down. This video actually made it onto ESPN, and the panelists asked the question: "WHAT IS LENNY?"
Lenny was revealed to be living in squalor during a Delray Misfits video where Brad visited his house. He claims that living in a clean house is for cookie cutters, and it's no big deal anyway since it "just needs mopped." "You have to wipe your feet before you go back outside" --YouTube commenter Paper Chaser. Lenny revealed his tragic life story during one of his visits with Brad: his abusive father Len Persin was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in 1968 as a defensive end but never played a game in the NFL after suffering a career ending knee injury. Afterwards, he imposed his lost dream onto his son Lenny. Despite being a talented baseball player in high school, Lenny's father ordered him to focus on football instead and spend all his time in the weight room to get a division 1 NCAA scholarship so he could make the NFL. During his sophomore year he got multiple letters from colleges after playing well as a defensive end. However, he got into an argument with his coach one day and quit. When he went home his father beat the shit out of him and forced him to rejoin the team. During his senior year, Lenny's father thought that Lenny's comic book collection was a distraction from football so he ripped it all up, including a Spider Man comic that would have been worth $25,000 today. Lenny retaliated by dropping out of high school and running away to do basic training for the air force, and his father said that he was no longer welcome in his house. When Lenny returned from boot camp he finished high school and attempted to get into college football, running a 40 yard dash in 5 seconds at 300 pounds in a tryout for the University of Pittsburgh, but he ultimately wasn't able to make the team. He is now forever haunted with letting his father down by failing to make the NFL. Afterwards, he went into bodybuilding and powerlifting, benching 462 pounds raw in a 2002 meet.
He has some weird hangup about pornography, often ranting
against "PORNO ADDICTS!!" and says that he does not own a
computer because he doesn't want to deal with "temptations" that
have gotten him in trouble in the past. After his 2014
bodybuilding show which Andrew filmed, he hit on a black
bodybuilder chick in the lobby and talked about how his
injectable tan had the side effect of increased erectile
function while grinning and staring at her with rapey eyes. He
asked if she wanted go out to the parking lot and jump up and
down on him with her heels. Lenny was dead serious but she
declined. Oddly, when Andrew asked if it would be okay if a guy
did that instead, Lenny seemed open to the idea. This was the
first hint we had that Lenny has straight up had sex with black
trannies and that they are his #1 fetish. He has a bizarre
obsession with an obscure Canadian actress named Christina
Broccolini, who he was taken with after watching the TV show Mystery
Hunters. His only wish before dying is to meet her, even
though she's probably filed a restraining order against him by
now. However, Lenny insists that his fixation on her is not
sexual because she transcends mere lust and has attained the
status of a goddess.
Andrew once caught Lenny popping an entire raw egg into his mouth. He also revealed that he enjoys eating pre-chewed food because it saves him a lot of effort. To demonstrate that he was not just joking, he asked the front desk lady at World Gym to chew up some food and spit it out, and he ate it on camera. While he was at it, he requested that she piss in a cup so that he could buy it off her for $20; he wanted to drink it because he believes that the piss of a pregnant woman has anabolic properties. Lenny once gave Andrew and Jason directions to a mysterious place where he sometimes goes to "relieve some tension" at 3:00 AM. They have yet to check the place out, but it's probably a dirty bathroom in the woods with a glory hole.
Despite all of his bizarre and scary attributes, Lenny is quite
protective of Jason, and is sometimes the only one trying to
keep his spirits up when he's being bullied by other members of
the gym. Lenny is the only person who will actually indulge
Jason by calling him by his preferred nickname Lord Vader
instead of Monkey Prick. Perhaps Lenny's biggest organ isn't his
gut, but his heart.
"I challenge anyone to come on down here and fight me, I'll give you $1,000, and I'll give you one free shot. Remember, no liability. Take a look at these teeth people, I'm a middle aged man! Come on down, we can have a teeth comparing contest, a physique contest, whatever! You wanna fight? Whatever. We'll do it all." --Fat Fuckin Lenny
"And people say, 'What if you die Lenny, what if you die?'
Well if I die, I want you to oil me up, put me in the posing
trunks, and roll my corpse onto that stage next to Dale, and
I'll still be bigger and harder than him." --Big Lenny
aka Knee Wrap Nate aka Insect Nate aka Transsexual Nate aka
Milkflake Nate aka Cookie Cutter Nate. A fan with a small
YouTube fitness channel who came down to collaborate with Jason.
He liked the atmosphere of World Gym so much that he decided to
stay. Recently started sporting a "I just got out of prison"
beard. He admits that he used to be addicted to meth and it
seems to have fried his brain a bit, but he's cleaned up his
life now. Lenny makes fun of him for wearing knee wraps,
implying that he wouldn't be able to squat nearly as much weight
without them. Nate protests with: "They're not knee wraps,
they're knee SLEEVES! There's a big difference!" Lenny commented
that Nate's knee wraps looked like pantyhose, giving rise to the
nickname "Transsexual Nate." Andrew told Nate not to be
offended, because when Lenny breaks someone's balls, it means he
actually likes them. This was made abundantly clear one day when
Lenny looked Nate up and down while grinning from ear to ear and
said that he could make a lot of money as a male prostitute.
Nate tried to ignore him, but Lenny continued to follow him
around the gym, insisting that rich gay guys would pay a lot of
money for someone like him. Lenny's nose started to twitch,
which is what happens when he gets aroused. Nate works out at a
different gym now.
"So I got to meet Jason in person. He's ... unusual." --Nate's first ever video with The Piss Lord
"Greece? The, like the, is it a country? Okay a country. I
don't know Europe." --Meth Head Nate
aka The Motor City Madman aka The Bedroom Bully. He works as a long haul truck driver and often uploads strange racist rants in the darkness of his truck cab. An old school hardcore powerlifter who was the 1988 teen national powerlifting champion, he can be frequently seen by the garbage bin vomiting after a heavy set of deadlifts. His philosophy for strength training is as follows: "Strength training is like a game of chess. You can't try and win the game with each move. You're always setting up for something in the future." On the importance of speed in powerlifting: "You can't move heavy weights slow, it's impossible. You try and move something heavy slow, you can't do it. It's gotta be explosive or you're done. Whenever I hear a personal trainer telling a client: 'nice and slow' I just roll my eyes. It gets you nothing. You want to activate the most amount of fibres to work at the same time, and the only way you do that is with speed work."
Jay Masters was the star of a notorious Halloween party video
that was filmed at Jason's mom's house (Part 1 | Part 2): Jay Masters arrived already
drunk and dressed up as OJ Simpson, wielding a real machete and
proclaiming that he had "come to kill white bitches who have
little black babies." As he got drunker and drunker, Genova
could only watch helplessly as the Motor City Madman sucked on
his mother's toes on camera and grabbed her ass as she bobbed
for apples. However, the most tense moment in Delray Misfits
history occured when Big Lenny (dressed up as a tranny) got
serious and challenged Jay to step outside. They stared each
other down and it looked like the two 300+ pound behemoths would
actually come to blows.
"I very rarely drink two days in a row. Because I don't like to drink when I'm sick, and I usually drink until I'm ill." --The Motor City Madman
aka Brigadier General Bradolf Shitler (nickname given to him by Lenny because he thinks Brad's new haircut and beard make him look like a Civil War general). A mail man who used to be known as Jason's nemesis because he bullied him in the gym at every opportunity, insulting his physique and complaining about his stench. Jason used to run away at the first sight of Brad, but started fighting back, returning his insults with: "HEY MAIL MAN! DELIVER MY MAIL HUEHUEHUE!" and: "Why don't you shut up you ... strawberry sandwich!"
As time went on, Brad evolved beyond being a side character
who insulted Jason and became one of the core members of the
Delray Misfits, starring in several videos outside of the gym.
Jason and Brad had a number of heart to heart talks after Jason
suffered backlashes from his fans and sought some advice. Brad
has the unique ability to check Jason's delusions and make him
sound like a normal, down to earth person, albeit briefly. It
became obvious that Brad actually cares for Jason and feels the
need to give him a harsh reality check whenever necessary.
Although Jason is the main target of his roasts, he is not the
only one. Brad also frequently insults Lenny, saying that he and
Jason will compete for last place in every bodybuilding show
that they go to. He calls Big Jay Masters "The Motor City
Moron". Not even Saint Andrew can escape the wrath of The Big
Brad Wolf, mocking him for wearing the exact same outfit to the
gym every day, and saying that his practice of doing push-ups in
the gym is "douchey."
"Down slow. Yeah, slow, like you. You should know slow." --The Big Brad Wolf to Jason
A very humble and lifting oriented Misfit, known for his training methods consisting of bench press marathons. He meticulously documents all of his weights, sets and reps in a notebook. His sister makes fun of him because he talks like Rain Man (as if anyone could ever out-Rain Man Genova!). Used to be known as the most easygoing and chill Misfit in the gym, but lately his patience with Jason has been wearing thin. Andrew once asked Chuck when the last time he had a vacation was, and after a derisive laugh Chuck responded: "My stepdad's funeral!" after which Jason began laughing hysterically (video). Chuck recently started enjoying the game "Clash of Clans" on his phone. Lately though he has descended into full blown addiction, and is increasingly seen on camera not working out and just staring at his phone with a dead look in his eyes while muttering something about goblins.
"My fat accentuates my abs, because the fat rolls look like ab muscles." --Chuckening logic
aka The Emperor aka Jacked LaLanne, well respected 80something year old man, does lat pulldowns and shoulder presses every single time he's in the gym. Has lots of innocent old man charm, although he is a Korean War veteran. He has a young granddaughter named Candice Lee who makes songs on YouTube. Jason famously got jealous when people gathered around and watched her music video, insisting that he has way more views than her. Saul has not been seen on video in quite a while; word is that he defected to Planet Fitness across the street (the one that would not allow Lenny to join. It's because he's black right?).
"Hi everybody, I just want to thank all my fans out there, I appreciate it, but there's only one problem. There's a few guys that get on the YouTube, and they're using a lot of vulgar language. I don't think it's necessary to use the four letter word on the YouTube." --Saul
Curtis' reaction upon hearing Jason boast about seeing his
aka Chris Rock, he was a front desk worker in Delray Fitness in the early Genova videos, memorably participating in an infamous argument with Jason where after Jason called him "pootie tang", he retorted that Jason had never seen a pussy, which lead to a legendary incestuous monologue from Jason about seeing his mother's pussy and how hot his mother is (we had not seen Jason's alcoholic cunt of a mother at this point, which makes it even funnier in retrospect). He also talked about making a low budget zombie movie with his production company Chocolate Star Entertainment ... despite the name, he insisted that it was not pornographic. Curtis is mostly AWOL from current videos, but did make a brief return in Delray Misfits episode 71. He talked about how Andrew was going to be filming him soon for a behind the scenes look at his life. An apparently disinterested Andrew changed the subject by interrupting him and insisting that Curtis shrank by 2 inches. Come to think of it, even Curtis's voice sounded different than it did in the past; he talked less like Chris Rock and had more of an African accent. Was this a bizarre case of an imposter Curtis appearing, like in that Angelina Jolie movie Changeling?
"If you don't have sex by the fifth grade, something's wrong with you." --Curtis
An ex-boxer known for his flashy, unorthodox training methods in the gym, like behind the back clapping push ups, bosu ball balancing, and various exercises that involve hanging upside down. Lusted after by many of the females in the gym for his strong physique and alpha male personality. He is actually fairly quiet and only speaks when necessary, such as to complain about Jason's body odour. He has been missing from videos for quite a while because he started going to a CrossFit gym instead. Andrew once revealed that JT has an unknown beef with Big Richard and that's the reason why the two have never been seen in a video together. It's only a matter of time until JT returns and the subsequent fight to the death for dominance.
"I was takin a shit in the gym bathroom and the cleaning lady followed me in, shoved the vacuum cleaner underneath the stall and started vacuuming underneath my feet." --JT
A Haitian member of the Misfits who used to work with The
Fugees music group. He is permanantly shredded, does the
weirdest routine and claims not to watch his diet, yet has an
unbelievable physique. He says that the secret to his physique
is doing a massive amount of cardio due to riding his bike
several miles every day and working in a sweaty detailing shop
Will owns and works in his car detailing shop. Memorably,
Andrew arranged for Jason to shadow Will and potentially lead to
a change of career for him instead of his dead end job as a
Publix bag boy. Predictably, Jason fell asleep and missed the
entire thing, thus making the exercise redundant. Will detailed
Andrew and Jason's car for free, so Jason and his mother were
eager to take advantage of Will's generosity and get even more
free car cleanings. On another occasion, Jason Jewnova
complained that he was broke and not able to buy a coffee at
Dunkin Donuts, implying that somebody was going to have to buy
one for him. Will stepped up and said, "You know I got you man,
you're never broke when I'm here bro!"
Will's most famous moment is when he manned the camera and
commentated one of Jason's many posing sessions in the gym
locker room (a transcript can be found below). This led Andrew
to suggest that Will should be the new commentator for Mr.
Olympia, then it might actually be entertaining to watch.
"Look at dat! Aight! Pretty tight, boi. Squeeze. Look at that muscle. What you think about dat. Yeea. Stay focused boi. Focus ... Focus on that muscle. C'mon now show me show me your cock dere man. Uhhh maaa. You see it? You see it?! You feel it?! YOU FEEL IT?! Heheh. YEEEEAAAAAHH. Gimme dat brissy move, boiiiiiiiii. Hehehe eh k naow. I know you see it. I know you laughing at it. You see it. Stop playing! You see dat! YOU KNOW DAT BOI SEXY MAN! LET DAT BOI DO HIS TING! Dat boy so sexy - c'mon now. So how you feel man? Sickening? That's about ... that's what it's about man. Sickening, man." --Will (video link)
Former front desk worker at Delray Fitness who constantly broke Jason's balls. Jason once stank so badly that Damien sprayed him with Lysol. His loathing for Jason may have stemmed from an incident where Damien was humiliated in front of his wife when he was chewed out by the gym owner for letting Jason run amok in the gym.
One day, while Jason was hanging from a cable machine, Damien
announced that he was going to give him a birthday present, then
punched him hard enough in the ribs that a loud "thud" could be
heard. Former semi pro UFC fighter Jason Genova didn't even
flinch and simply laughed.
"Put your legs away, nobody wants to see your legs dude,
they're not sexy dude. They're as hairy as the back of your
Hot MILFy lady with a ripped body in her 40s. She worked the front desk of World Gym and was often annoyed by Jason Genova's antics. However, she enjoyed watching fan made YouTube videos about Jason and the Misfits and may have secretly enjoyed The Ment. Jason challenged her to do the ice bucket challenge, probably influenced by fans who preferred that she do it in a tight white top, and she agreed to do it later. Unfortunately, she announced that she got a new job as a manager at a different gym, and left without doing it. Her new job mysteriously fell through and she returned to World Gym, conveniently after the whole ice bucket challenge fad had died off.
Another former front desk lady at World Gym. She tended to be overshadowed by Jen when it came to attention from Andrew and Genova's Witnesses, but she seemed pretty kinky. She enjoyed oggling the legs of the gym-goers and openly wanted the D from JT (who doesn't though (no homo)). She also expressed a keen interest in Brad. However, Brad completely ignored her and changed the subject. This is one of the few times we have seen genuine fear from Brad.
"I'm a very bad girl. I need to be spanked." --Adrianna
aka Meg Griffin. Down to earth girl with glasses who can lift an impressive amount of weight ... for a girl. May or may not have started wearing a hat because Miscers/YouTubers commented on her hairline.
"I'm a girl now." --Liz
An old lady who was Andrew's somewhat failed attempt at finally getting a female Misfit onto the show (this was before the days of Jennifer, Adrianna and Liz). Genova's Witnesses begged Andrew not to give her any more camera time because she often went off on long, pointless tangents, like Grandpa Simpson. She still makes some rare appearances every now and then.
". . . Like the time I caught the ferry to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for m'shoe. So I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. 'Gimme five bees for a quarter,' you'd say. Now where were we ... oh yeah. The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. I didn't have any white onions, because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones ..." --Bubbles
aka Dibbie. Out of all the bizarre twists in the Jason Genova saga, this one may have actually topped them all. During Delray Misfits episode 71, Jason was approached in the gym by an enormous muscular woman who said that he was looking a little down. The two appeared to know each other already, and Jason was visibly nervous around her; Jason once claimed to have had sex with a bodybuilding chick who locked him in handcuffs, and she matched the description. Viewers had just written this off as a lie at the time, but could there be a connection? At any rate, Andrew jokingly explained to her that Jason had injured his coccyx, which gave the woman a genuinely concerned expression on her face (no doubt she had broken the coccyx of a few guys herself). She explained that she was championship winning bodybuilder Debbie D'Andrea, and she agreed to become Jason's new coath. It was later revealed that she was not only a bodybuilder, but a porn star who made muscle woman domination fetish videos; Genova's Witnesses discovered her porn website (which has a layout straight out of the 1990s) and found videos of her fucking Santa Claus and wrestling a guy in a gimp mask, putting him in submission holds as he desperately tapped out by slapping her ass. Thus, we had the absolutely mind blowing situation of Jason having a porn star coath, and helping her promote her porn videos on his channel.
This arrangement worked out well though, because Jason was
genuinely afraid of her and didn't dare to disobey her commands.
He was also clearly happy to have a female that he could shoot
the shit with about bodybuilding, as he asked her opinion on
things like how Dorian Yates got to be so freaky. Debbie even
suggested that the two could shoot a wrestling video together,
and this would no doubt lead to the inevitable escalation to the
Jason x Debbie porn video "Debbie Does Delray" ...
Shortly after this bizarre new chapter in the Jason Genova
story began however, it soon came to an end. Debbie told Andrew
that she no longer wanted to be in videos, because apparently
fans were harassing her. It should be made clear that these
kinds of idiots are not endorsed by the Genova's Witness
community. They are most likely part of a dark sect associated
with the Monkey Prick Facebook group. They could have at least
waited until the goddamn wrestling video was made!
"I feel like I'm wrestling a little baby GIRL! You have more excuses than anyone I've ever met! You're a little slow and a little weak for me. Do you think you can go and train for a couple years and come back? Do you have a bigger brother?" --Debbie
Known for always wearing a golf hat and showing off his
conquests on the dating website Plenty Of Fish. He once showed
Andrew a naked picture that a sloot sent him, and Andrew
attempted to censor it out on video, but failed. Nipples ahoy!
aka Coath Andrew aka Black Andrew, a front desk worker who also competes in Men's Physique. Due to his half black half Swedish heritage, he calls himself "The Nordic Negro." At first, Witnesses were happy just to have a World Gym employee who tolerated the insane antics of Jason and the Delray Misfits, but he went even further than that and is now knee deep in The Ment, attempting to train Jason whenever he can, and helping to run the Delray Misfits website and Instagram. He actually comes close to matching the strength level of Big Jay Masters in certain lifts, despite weighing much less. Perhaps more impressively than that, he posted a naked picture of Jennifer on the Delray Misfits Instagram after the two appeared to have finished banging.
Andrew spent hours a day training Jason for his bodybuilding
show at the Ruby Championships 2015 free of charge, only for
Jason to have the MC announce that he was trained by PJ Braun,
who didn't even come to Jason's show, let alone train him.
Has truly ridiculously sized arms, earning him the nickname "Synthol Mark" which is either true or a compliment. Despite his small stature, he is one of the strongest Misfits, easily benching 315 pounds for over ten reps. He is thought to be second only to Big Jay Masters in strength. Jay Masters often teases Mark by implying that he's scared of women. He extended an open offer on camera to help Mark get laid: "So if any of you ladies out there are interested, come on down to Delray Beach and you can be Mark's first!"
"Fuck em all, they're all scumbags. They're all bought and
sold. This country's finished. Sorry youngins, but your future
looks bleak. It's over. It's over, man." --Mark's sunny
outlook on the 2016 American presidential election
A legendary, mythical figure who was one of the original Delray
Misfits along with Andrew Fiedelman, Lenny, Big Richard, and
Saul back at the original World Gym, across the street from the
current World Gym, predating even Jason Genova's videos. His
current whereabouts are unknown. He is the only Misfit who is
actually capable of defeating Big Jay Masters in a strength
he has benched 650 pounds, 100% raw, despite being young
and only training in powerlifting for a very short time. At this
time, he also boasted a 765 pound deadlift for 4 reps. Powerlifting
watchers called him "A once in a decade talent" and believe that
he could have set a world record if only he had pursued it
further; instead, he became a bodybuilder, winning the
heavyweight division of the Florida state championships in
Orlando in 2006.
Big Lenny can not go a single video without mentioning "My
partner Andrew" and all his past feats of strength and all the
mischief that they used to cause together. Judging by the way
Lenny gushes about him, he may very well mean, "My life partner
Andrew." How's that for a mental image: two 300+ pound freaks
walking down the streets of Delray Beach together hand in hand.
Lenny also pleaded for Andrew to give him a phone call if he
happened to watch the Delray Misfits videos. The possibility of
him one day returning to World Gym is real, and would be a truly
monumental moment in Delray Misfits history, comparable to
Odysseus returning to Ithaca, or Goku arriving on Namek.
In the first ever Jason Genova video, My Storie Part 1, Andrew
Collura actually makes a hidden guest appearance: as Jason is
posing, he says, "Look at that Andrew, you know I'm gonna go
pro before you and make my millions!" While Andrew
Collura and Lenny commentate and chuckle off camera.

Left to right: Jonas, White Chocolate, Jason Genova, Attorney Scott Miller
aka The Rat Prick Pack. Jason's original filming crew who helped Jason first gain notoriety in 2009. Generally looked down upon as low life degenerates, the dark side of the force to Andrew and the Misfits' light side of the force. "My Story Part 1" was the first ever Jason Genova video, and subsequent editions of the My Story franchise have also been produced by this crew. Jason was ordered to dump Jonas and the rest of the crew by PJ Braun and Aaron Singerman after My Story Part 7 was released, threatening to cut off his Iron Mag Labs sponsorship. Jason complied, and they had an ugly falling out which resulted in Jason's old channel being deleted. Some of the older My Story videos were lost, possibly forever. After Iron Mag Labs dumped Jason due to lack of results, he reunited with Jonas and they resumed production of videos together. The Jonas crew is not on good terms with Andrew and the Misfits, and the two factions vie for The Dark Piss Lord's love and loyalty.
aka Rat Prick, he's an aspiring DJ whose crowning achievement is a poverty techno track called The Spaniard Shuffle that sounds like it was composed in a shareware Windows media program. Which it was. He also believes himself to be the leader of an entertainment empire called JonasGTV, even though his stable just consists of Jason and a few other bums he literally found off the street. He has drawn the ire of: Jason's mother, Andrew, PJ Braun and Aaron Singerman, as well as the vast majority of Genova's Witnesses. Generally seen as an exploitative, bad influence on Jason who makes him engage in bad behaviour, he nevertheless has produced some entertaining content and helped create the monster that is Jason Genova. He has known Jason since high school, and it's believed that the two were probably in special ed classes together and were like Napoleon Dynamite and Pedro.
"Jason Genova is one in a million. As soon as you meet him you know he's a star." --Jonas
aka Joey Joe, he is the main interviewer of Jason Genova in the My Story videos, getting him to reveal many interesting details about his life such as the fact that he only masturbates when he has sex. He had a falling out with Jason and Jonas after My Story Part 7 was released, supposedly dealt meth, stole all the ad money from Jason's original YouTube channel and then deleted it after he was kicked out of the crew. Despite this, he eventually returned to the crew and reprised his usual role with the microphone.
"Now Josh Foxx. Take a look at these flying kicks. Beware Josh Foxx." --Joey Joe Joe Junior Shabadoo
"I'm here to verify the contract signing of this contract."
First appeared in a video where Jason and Jonas signed a contract to "split half of the royalties 50/50" from The Spaniard Shuffle. He appeared to be high AF and showed little comprehension for what was going on or what he was even saying. He says that money is not the only green that he accepts in exchange for his services. It's unknown whether he is a real life poverty lawyer or just a scam artist, not unlike Dolan Duck. He is now the most popular member of the Jonas Crew.
Another legendary Scott Miller moment was when Jason and Jonas
attempted to make a serious video explaining who they were
blocking on Facebook and why, and Scott Miller giggled
uncontrollably throughout the whole thing when they brought up
Monkey Prick pictures (video).
"The crime that was broken, it was uhhhhh ... I don't know."
--Scott Miller, attorney at law
Tall bald mentally ill goofball who claims to dance to raise awareness for breast cancer or some shit like that. He only has one dance move, where he bends over backwards and kind of humps the air, but he does it well and does it frequently. A well known figure among residents of Delray Beach, he can be spotted out on the streets dancing and rambling incoherently. One gets the feeling that the breast cancer thing is just a front so he can get laid.
"I was out there with Jason Ginobli today, and Scott Miller the attorney, and he was doing some dance, some Spanish dance or something like that, I don't know he does his thing, it ain't for me but he can do it." --White Chocolate
Gay black guy who filmed My Storie Part 1, the first ever Jason Genova video. Possibly tricked Jason into stripping down bare ass naked to re-enact a scene from Terminator in My Story Part 3. Once wore a girl's wig and pranced around in the background while Jason was trying to read a bodybuilding magazine and explain to the viewers how Jay Cutler won the Olympia by "building a new set of world class legs".
In July 2014, Angel J denounced Jonas and appears to have defected to the Delray Misfits. He's also claiming that he's not actually gay. Maybe he, like Jason, "was gay a long time ago, but I stopped, I went straight."
"I'm here with the OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME to interview the #1 champion of the welterweight division, Jason Genova." --Angel J
aka Dong King, real name Manny Bazile. Jason Genova was supposed to introduce him to the camera, but screwed up his name and called him Manny Brazil and the name stuck. He appeared in a video on Jonas's channel where he, Joe Skee and Attorney Scott Miller went out for a night on the town, ie the Wal Mart parking lot. They said a girl came up to Manny Brazil and asked him for $5, which he agreed to on the condition that she give him a blow job. Later on, Joe Skee said that they were offered crack and smoked it. At the end of the video, Manny Brazil announced a disclaimer that they were all joking about smoking crack and it was just for entertainment. He didn't deny getting a $5 blow job in the parking lot, though.
Hefty succubus who traveled all the way from "COLD CHICAGO" to Florida in order to freeload off of Jason. A video was made on Jonas's channel that unveiled her as Jason's new girlfriend, and interviewer Joey Joe Joe asked the pair about frequency of blow jobs, hand jobs and so forth. Afterwards, Deanna and Jason made their own video where Deanna said that she was appalled by the Jonas video, and she made Jason apologize and clarify that the two were only friends. Thus, Jason had the utterly humiliating experience of being friend-zoned by a fat beeyotch. Eventually, Jason's mom found out that Jason had been sneaking her into his condo at night and kicked her out.
After Jason and Jonas split up, Jonas made a video with Deanna
that implied that he had stolen her away from Jason. He seemed
to be proud of this.
"So if you Miscers are nice to me, you'll see me in further
videos bringing the ments. And the ments will be broughten ...
more than ever before." --Deeana
The annual family Christmas tradition where they gather round and admire Jason flexing in his red speedo.
Jason's family background was actually not well known until 2014. It was assumed that his real surname was Frantzen, and that Genova was just a middle name or something he made up because he thought it sounded cool (he also called himself Jason Giovanni in My Story Part 1). However, information soon came forward from someone his stepsister: She revealed that his biological father was someone named Gary Genova, and Stan Frantzen was merely his stepfather. It was also revealed that his mother's family were rich as F Jews, owned upscale restaurants in Beverly Hills and a house in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Could Jason's lies about owning a Lamborghini and "Ford Viper" actually be true?!
Jason's mom meeting her son's bodybuilding idol Richard Gaspari. She dressed up in her best pug-wearing-a-crown shirt for the occasion.
Jane Frantzen Genova Herting aka Mama Genova aka Mrs. Sith
Lord. Gave birth to "The world's most famous bagboy" Jason
Genova. He calls her "mother" like he's Norman Bates. In July
2014, Andrew was shocked to discover that Jane had become a
member of World Gym, and went at the same time as Lenny during
the day. What ensued was a bizarre video where Jane felt up the
muscles of various Misfits while licking her lips and generally
acting cracked out. Later, she participated in an infamous video
where she went to Costco with Jason and Andrew, where it was
discovered that Jason drinks entire bottles of mouthwash within
days (this ... explains some things). While shopping, they also
met boxing promoter Don King. Jane mixed him up with Martin
Luther King Jr, and she went up to him and said that she loved
his "I have a dream" speech.
Despite everything, she was responsible for one of the most
touching moments in the entire Genova saga, when she started
crying after Jason had done a collaboration video with Richard
Gaspari because she was so proud of him. Jason misunderstood and
thought that she was crying because she got to meet Arnold
Classic winner Richard Gaspari (video).
She also graduated from the Cordon Bleu cooking academy in New
York and started up her own cooking channel, with special guest
appearances from people like Big Lenny. YouTube is surely
puzzled when they check the demographics and see that the
audience for a middle aged woman's cooking channel is mostly
guys in their early 20s.
"Let him choke himself then, let him hang himself on the barbell." --Jason's mom, on her beloved son Jason Genova
The matriarch of the family. She is called "mum mum" by Jason. Her grandson Jason Genova once bestowed upon her the honour of filming him flex in his underwear. When she expressed confusion over how the camera worked, Jason slapped his thigh in frustration, went up to inspect the camera, then squealed in annoyance, "IT'S ALREADY ROLLING!" To view this legendary video, just click on this.
During Jason Genova's 2014 Christmas party video, Jason challenged a seemingly random man named Harvey to a drinking contest, which he agreed to. But when Jason brought him the beer, he immediately forfeited. This proved the legendary Jason Genova adage that "Sometimes nobody shows up and you automatically win." However, the loser by default would end up having the last laugh: he was banging Jason's mom!
Jason spotted Harvey and his mom pawing at each other in the
kitchen, and it was discovered that he was indeed Jane's new
boyfriend. Who knows, judging by his utter lunacy, it's entirely
possible that he's Jason's biological father. Harvey and Jane
baked a cinnamon cake, and they both took in the smell together
while making orgasmic sex moans. As one YouTube commenter put
it: "my wife actually hit me because she thought I was
giving my pant antler a tug to some porno, but no no, just a
couple old fucks smelling a cake." Other characters in
this Christmas party video included: Jason's GILF Bible study
teacher and crackhead
Lou Ferrigno wearing a dress (when asked for his opinion
on the orgasm cake, he simply replied, "It's gawt nuts in it!").
"Yeah I'm Tarzan when I got my ring, and we wanna make sure that we get some bling, and we're gonna BLINGABINGWIAWINGANAWINWINAWAYO! EREYOWAYOYOWAYOWAHOWADAHIYA! BOYA! HUEHUEHUEHUE!" --Harvey
Jason's biological father. Not much is known about him outside of him knocking up Jason Genova's mom and then booking it the fuck out of there.
Jason's stepfather, worked
for the operating engineers. Died of cancer in 2001. Jason
always talked about him as if he was his real father, and has
never once even mentioned his biological father. The few
people who knew Jason when he was young report that he was
doing well despite his disabilities and seemed more or less
normal, but his condition deteriorated after the death of his
stepfather. Stan's biological children allege that Jane buried
him and hid his final resting place from them, but they
actually managed to find it after an astute Witness saw a
picture that Jason posted to Instagram where he visited Stan's
grave and was able to ascertain its location.
Stan Frantzen's biological
daughters and son. First appeared in YouTube comments sections
on videos where Jason's mom appeared, and later on The Misc
and FitMisc. Before Jason's family background
was known, he once made a cryptic video where he talked
about a stepsister that nobody knows about who he has
feelings for. Everybody just assumed that he was off his
rocker and was making up stories about imaginary
stepsisters. They all have the exact same vendetta
against Jason's mother's side of the family, and are obsessed
with telling everybody that Jason Genova and his mom have no
genetic relation to the Frantzens (who can blame them I
suppose). They allege that Jason's mom once came downstairs
wearing nothing but bra and panties in an attempt to seduce
A supplement retailer owned by ex-cop Adam Harper, Jason's
former coath from early 2014. Adam also ran a fitness boot camp
with his wife. He used his own house as a warehouse for
supplements, pro hormones and t-shirts that had some atrociously
ugly colour schemes and cheesy slogans on them like: "YOUR
WORKOUT IS MY WARM UP" "I DON'T TAKE STEROIDS BUT THANKS FOR
ASKING" and of course, the famous "I'd flex but I like this
shirt" shirt, which Jason misread as "I'd flex my butt, I like
shit" (yet he STILL enjoyed wearing a shirt that he thought said
that. Jason Genova is truly one of a kind.) Adam appeared to
make a very good living off of his company and boot camp,
because he and his wife owned a Lexus SUV and seemingly took a
vacation every few weeks. Adam eventually announced his
ambitions to expand Get Fit Fast Supplements and make his own
supplement company rather than just being a middleman. He closed
down his boot camp and looked into getting an actual warehouse
for his company. Due to this commitment, and in the face of
mounting pressure from his wife to stop spending all his time
with Jason, he resigned as Jason's coath.
Cheeky bald kent who first appeared in a video where he put Jason
through a boot camp style cardio workout. At first met with
universal derision from Genova's Witnesses for his cockiness,
broscience, trash talking of traditional bodybuilding workouts and
love affair with burpees and CrossFit, Adam would go on to become
one of the most beloved and important characters in the history of
the Jason Genova saga. He formally took over as Jason's coath from
PJ Braun, and promised everyone that he would get Jason abs.
What's more, he insisted that Jason do it naturally, and forbade
him from using the "skittles" (pro hormones) that he loved so
much. Nobody believed him, because it had already been established
that this was impossible. Jason had been trying and failing for 10
years to get abs, and couldn't even do it with PJ Braun and Aaron
Singerman giving him free groceries, pro hormones and training
Undaunted, Adam did a video with Jason nearly every day and forced him to complete grueling cardio workouts and weight training. Despite this, his progress was mysteriously slow. It was discovered that Jason was cheating on his diet, which led to the infamous "Dunkingate" incident where Jason insisted that he only went to Dunkin Donuts to get water, because the gym's water really sucks! Once, Adam came back from vacation and Jason got fat as fuck, gaining an incredible 10 pounds in only one week. Rather than admit that he cheated on his diet, Jason used the excuse that he was shooting steroids and that his fat was bloat from the testosterone (only Jason Genova would lie about doing illegal steroids in order to get out of admitting he ate junk food). Jason even uploaded a notorious video to his channel where he told haters to stop criticizing and bangin on him while he had what appeared to be frosting on the side of his mouth (you just can't make this shit up).
Adam had some fun times with Jason as well, and became something of a father figure to him. He arranged for him to meet a number of his bodybuilding idols, including Ronnie Coleman and Richard Gaspari. He took on the ugly assignment of shaving off all of Jason's body hair in a public gazebo (strong wtfs all around from the majority elderly Jewish population of Delray Beach). He even took Jason out for his birthday and gave him a set of nice clothes. Note that he did all of this for free. Aaron Singerman was heard on his radio show trash talking Jason and Adam, mocking the latter for paying Ronnie Coleman and Jay Cutler to do a video with him, and said that he had no chance of getting Jason shredded. Refusing to throw in the towel, Adam became increasingly obsessed with getting Jason abs at all costs; he started stalking Jason at his workplace every day, demanding to see what he brought for lunch. He paid Jason's co-workers to spy on him and make sure he wasn't disobeying his diet. He raided his fridge and even his wallet for evidence of junk food receipts. He took Jason to the drive through window of Burger King and asked the employee if she recognized this man.
Finally, after months of hardship, Adam had finally done the impossible: Jason's abs revealed themselves for the first time ever. It's true that Jason didn't really "make it" or anything, but Adam never said that he would get him 4% shredded with striated, shreds cuts and vascularing defination. He promised that he would get Jason abs, and that mission was accomplished. Soon after, Adam had to drop Jason due to his wife's pregnancy and the new business. Godspeed Coath Adam. Good luck with your supplement company and fatherhood, but you should really name the baby Jason. Just sayin ...
Jason's all time worst physique on the left, December 2012, PJ Braun era. Jason's all time best physique on the right, March 2014 after 6 months under Adam's supervision
"Jason, you are BY FAR the most difficult client I have ever
had. King sized Milky Way? Are you an idiot Jason? Do you
think this is what bodybuilders eat to get in shape? NO, then
why are you doing it?! What's your excuse? Are you hungry? Do
you just not give a fuck? So tell me, why are you wasting my
time? I work 70 hours a week, my wife is ready to kill me
because she's sick of me spending all my time with you. I am
putting ALL of my effort and ALL of my resources into this. I
have never tried at anything so hard in my life ... you know
why? Because if I give up, all the haters and the doubters
win, and I can't stand losing." --Adam
Bri and Tucker demonstrating their platonic friendship
aka Bri aka The Anti Ment. Adam's wife who has the voice of a porn star and the physique of Hulk Hogan. Was often in a very bitchy mood on camera and clearly lost tolerance for The Stench Lord and his constant visits to their house. She eventually got so fed up with Jason that she pressured Adam into severing ties with him. During the emotional video where Adam told Jason that he couldn't be his coath anymore, Bri even forbade the pet dog Jason from sitting down on the furniture because he was too sweaty. Many Genova's Witnesses suspect that she's cheating on Adam, because several Facebook pictures of her grinding on guys who are not Adam surfaced (including the BBC). On rare occasions she was actually nice to Jason, and even did the Spaniard Shuffle with him one time. Usually she was in a good mood after coming home late at night, hmmm ...
Adam's employee, who showed annoyance with being filmed, and clearly did not "get" the Jason Genova phenomenon. He's suspected of banging Bri, especially since they are both from Vermont, and she got pregnant soon after he moved into their house to help out with the supplement company ... coincidence? I guess we'll know for sure if the baby comes out with a super punchable douche face.
"Fuck off!" --Tucker
Jason's first arch nemesis. They knew each other from Gold's Gym (which later became Delray Fitness) when Josh Foxx used to work the front desk and was annoyed by Jason's antics and ego. Sometimes Jason's mom would phone the gym asking for him, and Josh Foxx would troll him by announcing over the gym's PA system: "JASON, YOUR MOM IS ON THE PHONE, SHE WANTS YOU TO COME HOME NOW." He made a series of mockumentary videos which parodied Jason's My Story videos, and he once carried around a picture of Jason asking random girls on the street if they thought he was attractive. Jason fired back with the puzzling insult: "Hey Josh Foxx, I don't even have a blender because your mom took it!"
Jason made a gym video with Andrew where he announced that he lost his car after getting carjacked, and Josh Foxx posted a comment expressing sympathy. Jason made a video after that where he thanked Josh Foxx for his concern, and the two effectively buried the hatchet. Josh Foxx disappeared from the Genova saga after that. The funny thing is, the carjacking story was likely a lie that Jason made up; in reality, his mom may have just taken away his driving privileges.
The historic exchanging of the No Homo bandana, back when Jason-Gideon relations were less strained.
Semi famous bodybuilder who feuded with Jason during the early My Story era. Jason's videos were ridiculed on the Muscular Development forums, where Ron Harris posted. Dark Lord Spaniard Himself arrived to battle his haters, and their feud began. Jason posted a video "exposing" Ron for his steroid use, despite the fact that he has never claimed to be natural, and to prove it he showed some pictures of Ron with an extremely poorly photoshopped roid gut (Video). Jason was quick to retract the video and apologize, possibly because he found out that Ron was sponsored by Jason's idol Richard Gaspari's supplement company, and he once made a video begging Gaspari to give him a sponsorship ("Nothing too big, just a $100,000 contract or something, I need the money"). He later blamed the Jonas Crew for making him call out Ron, and the two actually became friends and did a video together.
Many years later, a group of Genova's Witnesses went over to
the Muscular Development forums where Ron still posted and
trolled him by saying that Jason is much more famous than Ron,
has better genetics, and has the potential to go to Mr. Olympia
in a few years. Ron got extremely rustled and insecure and
posted a bunch of contest pictures of himself to prove that he's
a better bodybuilder than Jason Genova.
Bizarre rumours arose that when Jason and Ron did their collaboration video a long time ago, Ron slathered some peanut butter onto his chest and tricked Jason into licking it off of him. Ron denied that this ever happened, and clear evidence of it happening could not be found, but conspiracy theorists insist that Ron is lying, and that there was an extensive cover up where people were silenced and message board posts talking about this incident were deleted. This controversy has become known as "Peanut Buttergate".
"No one has ever licked peanut butter off my chest, and certainly not Janoy Cresnova." --Ron "Bill Clinton" Harris
Jason's first ever celebrity coath, the 200% natural bodybuilding champion Skip LaCour. Jason drove down to Miami and filmed a video with Skip where he unsuccessfully attempted to teach Jason how to curl 10 pound dumbbells with proper form for five minutes.
aka Pajamas Braun and Andrew Zingerman, a pair of bodybuilders
who were always together like Siegfried and Roy. They were old
school Genova's Witnesses from back in the My Story era,
laughing at Jason's videos along with Ron Harris on the Muscular
Development forums. They invited Jason onto their radio show,
and later, naively believed that they could get Jason Genova
shredded if they gave him free steroids, training, groceries and
diet plans. They sponsored Jason through their affiliated
supplement company Iron Mag Labs, and even offered him $1,000 if
he won a local bodybuilding show. PJ Braun formally appointed
himself as Jason's new coath. Little did he know of the horrors
that awaited him ...
Jason got fatter than ever, dirty bulking his way up to around 230 pounds, and was famously caught swallowing an ice cream cone whole in one bite when he thought the camera was turned off. PJ and Aaron's annoyance with Jason reached an all time high with the release of the controversial My Story Part 7, which once again showcased Jason cheating on his diet, among other things like breaking flaming boards with his ass. Iron Mag Labs CEO Robert DiMaggio always hated Jason, never approved of the sponsorship and he ordered PJ to get rid of him. The two had a big fight after PJ stood by Jason, and this eventually led to PJ and Aaron leaving Iron Mag Labs. They had recently created their own supplement company, Blackstone Labs, which Robert DiMaggio owned a 30% stake in. PJ and Aaron bought out his share, became totally independent and continued to sponsor Jason through Blackstone Labs. However, they too eventually dropped Jason after he started making emo Facebook posts where he threatened suicide after he and Andrew split up after Cameragate. PJ was forced to sever all ties with Jason after he kept pining for his ex coath over the phone and Twitter. They even gave Jason a few hundred dollars in "severance pay" just to frig off. They did reunite over a year later, and had a mutually beneficial relationship since videos with Jason got far more views than any other videos on the Blackstone Labs YouTube channel, and in exchange Jason got a ridiculous amount of free supplements and "gas money" every time he showed up to the warehouse.
PJ and Aaron ran a contest where people had to buy a Blackstone
Labs product and write an essay explaining why they wanted to
receive free tickets to go see a Slipknot concert with PJ and
sponsored IFBB pro bodybuilder Aaron Clark. Unfortunately, they got
kicked out of the concert because PJ got shitfaced and got
into a fight with a security guard. PJ said to him: "Just so
you know, If you throw me out I will probably kill you and
everyone that is around us." The contest winner must have
been pissed; he bought a Blackstone Labs product, wrote an essay
and flew all the way down to Florida, only for the asshole who
drove him to the concert to get them all kicked out 5 songs in
by getting wasted and sticking his thumb in a security guard's
surgical wound, it's so pissening.
Aaron eventually left to start up his own supplement company
RedCon1, and he and PJ had a falling out after PJ accused him of
stealing a list of e-mail addresses from the Blackstone Labs
database and contacting them to buy RedCon1 products. Even after leaving, Aaron still owned 35% of
Blackstone Labs and had voting rights, but PJ attempted to throw
him out. He was legally unable to do so, and they finally
reached an agreement to trade his shares in Blackstone Labs for
shares in other companies. PJ even
started photoshopping promotional pictures of him and Aaron
together to remove the latter, like Stalin did after he had one
of his men killed. PJ was also forced to dump Jason once
again after he made a scandalous video where he said Rich Piana
deserved to die because he didn't collab with him for a second
time, though many Witnesses suspect that the real reason was
Jonas leaking a video where Jason alleged that PJ cheated on his
ex-wife Celeste by doing gay for pay. Today, PJ enjoys making
YouTube videos where he peddles his questionably legal oral
steroids and shows off his expensive sports cars, even though
absolutely nobody watches the videos except for Genova's
Witnesses, who to this day continue to troll the comments
section with: "Where's Jason?" and "Jason15 coupon code doesn't
"There is no way you can mess this up, it's going to be idiot proof. It's going to be Jason proof!" --PJ Braun on Jason's diet plan
"Jason off Meds is wayyy different than on them. The time before last, when he told us he stopped taking all his Meds, he was legit talking to himself and pacing the streets outside for hours before coming in. When I asked him what he was doing all he could say was 'trolls, trolls, trolls ruining my life'... Over and over again. He was honestly a little scary to be around and made most of my staff very uncomfortable." --Aaron Singerman
aka Cody Montgomfery, because Jason is unable to pronounce his
name correctly, presumably because of his DSL lips. Cody is an
IFBB pro bodybuilder sponsored by Blackstone Labs who was
assigned to be one of Jason's coaths for the 2017 Ruby
Championships, and he soon began enjoying The Ment. The only
videos on the Blackstone Labs YouTube channel that get any views
are the ones with Jason in them, but with one notable exception:
a massage session that Cody had in a hotel
room. At first glance it seems odd that this video has
hundreds of thousands of views until you realize that something
strange is going on in the comments section: the video
accidentally went viral among the gay community because it
features a hunky masseur rubbing down Cody's ass and feet, it
aka Goddess Prick, an IFBB pro figure model
who PJ Braun assigned to be Jason's main coath for the 2017 Ruby
Championships. Genova inadvertently insulted her when they first
met by saying that she "looks good for off season mode" even
though she was actually 4 weeks out from doing a show. However,
The Iron Prophet actually turned out to be right because she
ended up tying for last place out of 28 competitors. This is no
knock against her abilities though since bikini figure contests
are notorious for having mysterious judging criteria, it
politics bro. Blackstone Labs assigned a whole panel of coaths
to supervise Jason for the Ruby, but Karen was the most beloved
of them all among Witnesses due to her upbeat personality and
throwback to Adam Harper's workouts. She didn't even get mad at the Shit Lord when he insinuated to Brad that he was "eating her monkey" unlike Diana Maybrook who flipped out after a similar insinuation. With Karen's help, Jason got
into incredibly good shape (by his standards) two months out
from the Ruby. Unfortunately, after PJ Braun was forced to dump him, he
coped with the loss of his goddess by stress eating at Burger
King, and without her cardio-intensive workouts he bloated back up
and looked like complete shit at the Ruby. Despite Jason being fired from Blackstone Labs, Karen still showed up to the Ruby to cheer him on.
"I gave him specific meal programs. Very professional and specific, like there's no way that he can mess it up." --Coath Karen (challenge accepted)
aka the Son of Poseidon aka Seal Prick, a teenage kid who gained infamy by waking up at 3:00 AM in order to drive to "The Mecca of Bodybuilding" World Gym in Delray Beach Florida and appear in a 6:00 AM Delray Misfits video, where he stood off to the side, barely said anything and received like 30 seconds of camera time (a complete transcript of his appearance can be found below). At first mocked by Genova's Witnesses for his crippling shyness and selling his own line of Brody's Fitness Life t-shirts despite only having 100 subscribers on YouTube and only being able to bench 165 pounds, he eventually won them over with his innocent, well meaning personality, Jonnie Candito eyebrows and his expert water polo skills; Witnesses discovered a video on his channel where he showed off his svelte twink physique in a speedo and spazzed out by himself in a pool for 4 minutes, which was actually him playing water polo against an imaginary opponent. He henceforth received the title Son of Poseidon and became a cult fitness icon.
Curious Witnesses still continued to follow his social media
despite being long removed from the Genovaverse, and they
discovered that he had hooked up with a 2/10 asian whale. This
was disappointing since they felt that the Son of Poseidon could
have done so much better. Furthermore, her Instagram was
littered with pictures of her posing with other guys at parties
and gushing in the comments about how hot they were. She also
said this to Brody on Instagram: "Thank you for literally
cleaning my whole room and packing up all my stuff and
cleaning my whole car while I just watched Netflix and
relaxed. I love you" Brody failed to heed these red flags
and got engaged to her. In order to provide for his whale (and
bulls), he got involved in a Zija multi level marketing scam and
started posting cringeworthy inspirational quotes on his
Instagram, comparing himself to Mark Zuckerberg because he sold
useless Zija drinks and implying that people with normal jobs
were sheep. Predictably, his MLM scheme flopped because he was
at the bottom of the pyramid and his fiancee dumped him for

aka Ian McPopTarts aka Professor NoGains, a pasty nerd who is a self proclaimed expert on the science behind bodybuilding. Curiously enough however, he has been unable to apply this knowledge to his own physique. When called out on this, he blames his genetics and his status as a natural lifter. A famous figure in the YouTube fitness community, he is an advocate of the "If It Fits Your Macros" (IIFYM) school of flexible dieting for bodybuilding, which he uses to justify his voracious appetite for Pop-Tarts.
Ian McCarthy entered the Genova saga when he made a video criticizing people who insulted Jason Genova because he really enjoyed his videos, and even went so far as to tell people who hated on Jason to go jump off a bridge. At the end however, Ian added, "I'm not really impressed by the people that make fun of Jason knowing that he is admittedly dyslexic, and probably autistic as well." When Jason caught wind of this video, he predictably ignored all the positive things Ian said about him and zeroed in on the autism comment, going on a tirade against Ian and insisting that "I am not autism." To make matters worse, an imposter Ian McCarthy appeared on YouTube and Facebook taunting Jason, which prompted a legendary tirade where Jason threatened to wrap his "18 inch bear arms" around Ian's neck and choke him out. Jason increasingly began comparing himself to Chris Benoit, Craig Titus and Paul Demayo, perhaps suggesting that Jason was in fact intent on murdering Ian.
After the misunderstanding caused by the fake Ian was cleared up, the lure of more YouTube views arising from a collaboration with YouTube celebrity Ian McCarthy proved too great for Jason to resist. Ian and his girlfriend traveled down to Delray Beach, Florida and stayed with Jason for a few days, filming a series of videos. Ian even declared himself to be Jason's new coath, taking the reins from Adam Harper, and announced plans to stay with Jason for the whole summer. Ian's tenure as Jason's coath proved to be extremely short lived however; the exact reason is unknown, but Ian may have backed out after he saw what a train wreck Jason had become without Adam, and Jason's mom had also expressed displeasure with the idea of some random guy and his girlfriend moving in with Jason (who knows what kinky shenanigans they were after?). Jason would eventually make good on his promise to wrap his 18 inch bear arms around Ian's throat.
"May I touch you sir?" --Ian McCarthy to Jason
aka Chode aka Chandler Blades, Jason's former manager. He
instigated the infamous "Cameragate" incident that caused Andrew
and Jason to split up. Around October 2013, a mysterious
douchebag named Chad appeared online and convinced Jason that he
was a marketing expert who could help him get the millions and
millions of views that he so badly desired if he gave him access
to all of his accounts. Of course, The Iron Gullible Cunt did
so, and Chad installed himself as his new manager. He offered to
pay for half of a digital camera so that Jason could film his
own videos instead of having to rely on Andrew all the time.
Andrew warned Jason not to let some stranger have access to all
his accounts, and that his involvement with Chad was probably a
bad idea. Jason ignored his longtime friend and producer's
advice and went for the camera. This, coupled with Jason making
up stupid lies about Andrew like them getting into a fist fight
over Chad caused Andrew to resign as Jason's camera man and
producer. The two would eventually reconcile, but this started a
dramatic change in the style of videos being posted to Jason's
channel; instead of the classic weekly gym videos with witty
commentary by Andrew, Jason instead started filming his own
videos which were often long, unedited and completely pointless.
For example, he once made a video of himself driving to Wal Mart
to get $5 worth of gas, and constantly commented on how, "It's
just craziness out here!" while pointing the camera to empty
streets. He also turned the windshield wipers on to full blast
because he heard that it was supposed to rain that day.
Some examples of Chad's marketing genius:
Chad has since vanished. The really ironic thing is, after he
became Jason's manager for a few months, Jason's subscriber
count nearly doubled, but it had absolutely nothing to do with
any of Chad's retarded marketing schemes; Cameragate simply
caused so much controversy and drama that it marked the
beginning of the Jason Genova megathreads on bodybuilding.com's
Misc forum, which dramatically increased his exposure. It also
marked the beginning of the Adam Harper era, which brought daily
videos full of ments and unprecedented insight into Jason's
personal life. Similar to how Jason is an unintentional comedy
genius, Chad is perhaps the unintentional marketing genius.
"Nice hairdo you fucking homo. guaranteed by looking at you, that you suck cock." --Chad responding to one of his critics on The Misc
The psychotic owner of the supplement company Pollard Nutrition. He runs the company with his brother Alex Pollard, who is in charge of the research and development of the products. Adam offered Jason Genova a $10,000 sponsorship, because he insisted that Jason's involvement with the company would allow him to compete with the big name supplement companies. He released a number of creepy videos where he wore an oversized suit and urged Jason to sign the contract, including one where Goodbye Horses (from Silence of the Lambs) was playing in the background. At the end, he would pivot and walk off camera like a zombie. In another video, he again pressured Jason into signing the contract while sitting in a chair; although the video was shot from the waist up, an observant viewer noticed that at one point he shifted his legs and briefly revealed that he was wearing a suit top, but no pants. He tried to convince Jason to buy a plane ticket to Las Vegas so they could meet, and Genova's Witnesses feared that this would mark the end of the Sith Lord's life ...
... Turns out that this was all an elaborate ruse. Adam Pollard was so dedicated to this troll job that even many Genova's Witnesses were fooled. Still, Adam Pollard's psycho character may not have been an act completely, because what kind of a person would spend hours upon hours every day trolling a mentally handicapped man through Facebook and Skype conversations? Adam and Alex would play out elaborate skits in front of Jason on Facebook, like Adam threatening to stab Alex if he didn't send Jason his supplements, and Alex in turn threatening to run away with his scientific formulas. They didn't even release these chat transcripts to the public (they were obtained by a third party logging into Jason's account), and they were basically wasted on Jason as he just sat there bewildered, interjecting with an occasional, "Wats going on!!!!" Adam Pollard also has a tendency to upload a video, delete it within a day and then schizophrenically re-upload and re-delete it. He made a bizarre video where he appeared to be out of character and drunk driving, rambling about his involvement with the Monkey Prick and Rat Prick groups on Facebook and how he was having the gap between his teeth fixed. As usual, it was deleted after one day. It's difficult to tell how much of Adam Pollard is an act vs him being a genuine weirdo, but he is respected by Genova's Witnesses for bringing some laughs during The Great Ment Drought of mid 2014 (after Jason was dropped by Coath Adam Harper).
aka DoItBig aka Mr. Steal Yo Girl, real name Mike Bisceglia (or as Jason Genova calls him, "Mike Bisqually"). Notorious bodybuilder who gained a cult following for his profanity laced YouTube videos and hardcore training philosophy. He is also known for making videos with a sideways camera, which he refuses to fix because it's "more real." He appeared on the television show Tosh.0 as Mike the Trainer, where he told Tosh that he looked like a skinnyfat faggot who needed to squat, deadlift and "DRINK AT LEAST A GALLON OF MILK A DAY, DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME?!" He describes his ideal girl as: "PERFECT BODY, FUCKIN 10/10 CURVES, FUCKIN SLAMMIN TITTIES, FUCKIN BIG BEAUTIFUL ROUND APPLE ASS, STICKIN MY PENIS IN THERE, BECAUSE I AM THE FUCKIN ALPHA MALE." His YouTube channel has been suspended numerous times, most recently for uploading a video where he was escorted out of a store by security for picking a fight with a guy who was carrying his son on his shoulders.
TheRage had a kind of older brother relationship with Jason, often making fun of him and provoking Jason to declare war on him. They always made up later though, and talked about doing a collaboration together. TheRage even stood up for Jason when he was called out by popular YouTuber Bios3training, saying that he had no right to make fun of the way Jason trains since Bios3 trains like a bitch himself. However, one infamous incident has probably split the two up for good: Jason got himself yet another online girlfriend named Erica, and TheRage talked trash about her. This caused Jason to release a number of hip hop inspired videos where he declared, "Erica, Erica's my bitch, you got a problem with it? CLICK! Peace out, BYE! Erica's my bitch, she's my homegirl!" in another video: "Cum on the nookie, cum on the cookie! Stick it up your ASS Rage, stick it up your ass, stick it up your ass, stick it up your ass!" Jason then solicited his fans for donation money to "further his bodybuilding career." Turns out that he actually used the money to buy a $158.99 necklace for Erica. What's more, Erica developed an unhealthy fixation on TheRage, leaving him countless rambling voice mails. TheRage convinced Erica to send him the necklace that Jason bought for her with the donation money, and he showed it off on video. Jason learned a valuable lesson from this incident, reflected on it deeply and did not fall in love with another random online girl for a solid ten days.
"You think I'm scared of Ebola? Fuck Ebola, that shit's for pussies! Take a multivitamin and lift you fucking pussy, fuck you!" --TheRage191
Amateur bodybuilder who has the distinction of being the most potato out of all of Jason's former coaths. Despite being a long time fan of Jason's since at least 2011, and presumably having witnessed the failings of the PJ Braun era and Adam era, for some reason he believed that he could get Jason shredded without even putting forth 1/10th of the effort that Adam did. This kind of naivety is expected from people new to Jason Genova, but come on now, he should have known better. He sold his house in Connecticut, packed all of his things into his car and drove across the country to Florida with his wife Missy for a low paying job connected to Blackstone Labs, and in his spare time he planned to train Jason. As it turns out, the job fell through and he and his wife were forced to turn around right back to Connecticut and move into his parents' house. He still wanted to coath Jason long distance, and even sent him $700 worth of supplements. Soon enough though, Jason dumped him, and Tim reportedly asked for his $700 worth of supplements back (yes, I'm sure that The Iron Freeloader got right on that).
But hey, what Tim lacks in brains, he makes up for with hot
wife. He posted a video of his wedding ceremony on YouTube,
which appeared to be conducted in his living room while family
members sat around in chairs checking their phones, and as a
pair of wiener dogs wandered around.
"Jason, um, this is how you make a protein shake. You gotta first make sure you start with a cup that's clean." --Coath Tim
Better known as RC, real name Raphael Zamora. Started his own
YouTube fitness channel called RZFitnessTV despite having the
charisma of a shovel, but figured that he could make up for it
with a sufficient amount of Zyzz/Misc/Genova meme spouting. He
decided to collaborate with Jason Genova to increase his
exposure, and the video was basically 20 minutes of: "Fuaaaaaaa,
on our way to collab with Jason Genova brahs, sickening.
Mirin? Strong lighting. Pissening carb meal of peace.
Fuaaaaaa." Amazingly, his YouTube channel exploded in
popularity, going from less than 1,000 subscribers to 20,000 in
a year. Videos where he just went out and filmed himself eating
got hundreds of thousands of views, most likely from gay guys
who get off on that sort of thing, which brings to mind Matt
Ogus's G4P confession video where he said that gay guys would
pay him $100 to make a video of himself eating sloppy joes while
The next time big shot Raphael went to Delray Beach, Jason
didn't remember his name and thought that his real name was "RC
Fitness." He got extremely butthurt over this, despite the fact
that Jason can't even remember his own name (see infamous Jason
Giovanni/Janoy Cresva incidents). RC said that he didn't want
someone like Jason as a friend, and refused to drive him to the
Europa fitness expo. Oh, severing ties with Jason didn't stop
him from continuing to spout all of his catch phrases though.
Refusing to be around Jason because of something that he did, or
because you don't want to smell him during the car trip is a
selfish act, plain and simple. Everyone understands that it's no
picnic to hang around with Jason, but you do it anyway for the
sake of something far greater than you or I: The Ment.
RC has demonstrated himself to be incredibly thin skinned in
other ways as well: He once whined about a video he posted
getting a bunch of dislikes. The ratio? 393 likes to 91
dislikes. Whenever Jason gets a like to dislike ratio that good
on one of his videos, he's ecstatic! One Genova's Witness
trolled RC by commenting on his videos with the account
"RCShitnessTV" and using a mugshot of Raphael from a drunk
driving conviction as his picture. He was banned from the
channel instantly, and Raphael even tried crying to YouTube to
get the account deleted. Thankfully for him, he didn't train at
World Gym outside of the Genova collab; the sensitive little
flower would definitely not be able to handle the banter and
ball busting from the Delray Misfits. He would break down and
run out of the gym crying after Lenny and The Big Brad Wolf had
their way with him.
Perhaps the greatest offense of them all is when he started
posting dickish, passive aggressive replies to his own fans when
they gave him compliments or asked him innocent questions (screenshot
compilation). Not even Jason has ever stooped that low. In
RC's defense, he was prepping for a Men's Physique (aka Men's
Bikini) show at the time and he was presumably carb depleted.
Some people deal with carb depletion in different ways I guess.
Some people lash out at their own fans, other people take bites
out of the steering wheel. He suffered another scandal when he
ate a cookie in the gym and a big chunk of it fell on the
ground. He looked around to see if anyone was watching and
didn't even bother to clean up his crumbs. When he was called
out for this in the comments, he tried claiming that they fell
into his gym bag but the truthfulness of this was doubtful.
After people finally figured out that all his boring videos were
the same shit of him going to the gym and then eating at
Chipotle afterwards his channel faded in popularity, and his
videos currently only get a couple thousand views each.
