"You might as well ask "What is the meaning of life?". That's how complicated the question "Who is Jason Genova?" is. You won't get the answer from a book or from someone on an internet forum. You have to experience it. The videos, the Facebook posts, the instagram pictures, the radio talk shows all form a vast and complicated web that one must do his best to keep track of. Maybe one day you'll understand." --Misc user SkinnyMexican
"Trying to explain Genova is basically like trying to explain a large fictional fantasy world now. Genova needs a wiki explaining events, people, phrases, items, like Lord of the Rings or the marvel universe would have." --Unknown Misc user
"... There is an idea of a Jason Genova, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real Jason, only an entity, something illusory, and though he can hide his cold gaze and you can shake his hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense your lifestyles are probably comparable: Jason simply is not there. He has all the characteristics of a human being -- flesh, blood, skin, hair -- but his depersonalization is so intense, has gone so deep, that normal ability to feel compassion had been eradicated, the victim of a slow, purposeful erasure. He is simply imitating reality, a rough resemblance of a human being, with only a dim corner of his mind functioning" --Unknown
"Oh, it's great fun. You could not possibly be depressed living with Jason, because he's always saying something hilarious. Like you said, it IS non-stop, but I honestly don't find it annoying, I find it to be like non-stop entertainment." --Ian McCarthy on what it was like living with Jason Genova (a.k.a. Janoy Cresva, a.k.a. JCream, a.k.a. Jason Giovanni) for a week
"His self aggrandizing delusions are an exaggerated apex representation of modern society in the social media/selfie generation as a whole (or maybe humans have always been this way but modernity has exposed this fact, I don't know!): Everyone thinks far too highly of themselves. But this is especially pronounced among those who should be least likely to overestimate themselves and have evidence to the contrary staring them in the face. It culminates with Genova, a man with practically zero discernable positive or extraordinary features and a seemingly endless list of negative traints, and yet he believes himself to be a virtuous saint who's excellence has propelled him to celebrity status. It's fascinating watching the cognitive dissonance occur in real time; he's incapable of reconciling obvious external feedback with a hyper-inflated inner perception of his practical godliness.
I fell off with Genova and the misfits for a few months, but I began following again after Janoy said he liked Coath PJ more than Coath Adam and confessed in private when he didn't know he was being filmed that he didn't like Coath Adam very much. This is especially profound because Adam was literally the only one who got Genova measurably closer to the god-like figure he perceives himself to already be. But the stern manner in which Adam acted as a literal father figure and coach demanded that Jason defer and submit somewhat to his authority. This threatened Jason's internal perception and ego; and this No Es Livin La Vida Genova.
You can more or less generalize Genova's behavior and self-perception to most human beings to a MUCH lesser extent and it sometimes offers insightful explanations for their (our?) behavior which are logically and philosophically consistent.
The next time you think you're special in some way or good at something or even above average, remember that Jason Genova thinks he's a good bodybuilder. Maybe you suck." --FitMisc user PublixBagboy
-September 14, 2018: Added Diana Maybrook and Emma to the Cast
of Characters section on the eve of Mr. Olympia weekend. Also
added the story of how Big Lenny met Jason in the intro blurb on
the front page.
-December 15, 2017: Added a new faction to Cast of Characters,
Blackstone Labs, along with Cody Montgomery and Coath Karen.
-August 29, 2017: Modernized many of the Cast of Characters
entries to reflect current events. Next on the agenda is adding
entirely new entries for new characters.
-August 19, 2017: Cliff notes are now complete and will be
updated on an ongoing basis! Next on the agenda is a major
update to the Cast of Characters page.
-July 08, 2017: Keep checking the "Last update" date beside the
Cliffs Notes link. I'm going to work on this every day now but
it will take at least a month to update all the happenings to
the present day.
-December 31, 2016: The Genovapedia is back and badder than
ever! And by badder I don't mean not gooder! New Cliffs, updated
character profiles and new quotes all coming within these next
-November 05, 2016: Quick announcement that this website is not
dead, but pressing matters have put a delay on updates. It's
estimated that resumption of updates will begin in December
-May 22, 2016: Blahapedia is pretty much done. Added "White
Chocolate Blasts Andrew" to Banned Videos.
-March 27, 2016: Added the Blahapedia to the main page, a
character in the Genovaverse who will now get a whole section
devoted to him. This is a major project that will be improved
and updated as time goes on.
-March 19, 2016: Gave Aaron Singerman a new quote in his Cast
of Characters entry to give an interesting insight into Genova's
behaviour when he's off medication. Added some new quotes to the
Quotes section: Jason's reaction to Leroy Colbert's death, Jason
wanting to steal some pennies out of a fountain, Jason calling
himself an ancient dolphin from the '70s. Added the terms
"Cookie cutter" and "Mellon" to the glossary.
-January 03, 2016: Updated PJ Braun and Aaron Singerman's entry
in cast of characters with interesting new details about the
creation of Blackstone Labs, and why they split with Iron Mag
Labs (it involved Jason!), as well as an incident about PJ
getting kicked out of a Slipknot concert. Created a new era for
post-Ruby events in Cliff Notes, "The Year of the Monkey Prick"
and all events to this date have now been updated. I won't
bother pointing out Cliffs updates in this section anymore,
instead, I hope to continually update the Cliffs as soon as
possible after events happen, so check it frequently if you want
to follow the storyline. Toned down the brightness of the white
text on black background by making it more grey, and the piss
yellow link colour on black background; I dig the vintage 90s
look of the webpage (especially since Genova himself is 90s as
fuck), but I have to admit it's quite hard on the eyes,
hopefully it's better now. Honest opinion bro, send me an e-mail
off camera if you still find the page to be eye rape.
-December 25, 2015: Merry merry hoey hoey Christmas from the
-December 05, 2015: Wrote a bunch of new cliffs on the
aftermath of the Ruby Championships. From now on, I'll try to
write cliffs as soon as possible after events happen so that
people can check back frequently and keep themselves up to date
if they're not able to watch the videos. I also might end the
"I'm not Hindenburg Anymore Bro Era" and retroactively put the
events after the Ruby in a new era, not sure yet, we'll see how
things unfold. It's similar to how the Renaissance wasn't even
defined until centuries after it happened. Added
YouGottaBeAFreak and DrLiggy to the Fan Buddy Links, the naked
Jennifer pic to Coath Andrew's entry in Cast of Characters, the
video of Lenny being caught eating a raw egg to his entry, and
some sickening new quotes (Jason demanding payment for a
shoutout, Black Ice a supplement good for building fat,
announcing that he's about to go to the gym tomorrow, and a girl
hanging up on Jason after he hit on her).
-November 02, 2015: Order 66 on the Genovapedia for not
updating for a month! Added the new section "Fan Buddy Links",
updated Will's entry in Cast of Characters with another example
of his generosity, updated Nate's entry with his new career as a
/competitive eater, new quote where Jason claims to be more
powerful than the Pope and the next Zyzz, new quote where Jason
tells Mike Chang to shove his six pack short cut abs up his six
pack ass, and a new quote where he mocks Vegan Gains for being a
"tofu almond man" and a weirdo, then proceeding to break out
into a spontaneous Yoda voice. More updates to the Cliff Notes
-September 26, 2015: Pre-Ruby Championships hype! Wrote some
more cliffs on recent developments, as well as retroactively
adding the fish cooking video that happened a few months
earlier. That really did warrant a mention.
-August 31, 2015: Added the mythical Andrew Collura to Cast of
Characters. Anyone unaware of him should definitely go read the
entry, this monster may return to World Gym one day. Also added
a new quote where Jason claims to be the last aesthetic
-August 26, 2015: Added a new quote to the main page intro from
FitMisc user PublixBagboy, it was just too sickening to pass up.
Added Mark to Cast of Characters.
-August 16, 2015: Added Order 66 to the Glossary (yep, these
days it's more relevant than ever), Andrew The Trainer to Cast
Of Characters and a few new sickening quotes. I don't always put
new quotes at the bottom, because some quotes have a theme and
go together (quotes about Zyzz, sickening call outs, pissening
motivational quotes and so on).
-August 09, 2015: Updated Big Richard and Mike's entries in
Cast Of Characters in light of Delray Misfits episode 100. Added
the oatmeal burning incident and the crescent kick/palm kick
video to Cliffs (both from the My Story Era).
-July 25, 2015: Made some more additions to Cliffs, adding more
video links, some screenshots and new developments. I'd really
like to work on adding more stuff to the My Story Era, but
records from that era are not well preserved.
-July 24, 2015: Opened up the section Genova's Witnesses, the
religion of Jason "The Iron Prophet" Genova. I hope that you all
take the gospel message within it to heart, and come to
understand what it truly means to be a Genova's Witness.
-July 15, 2015: Added video links to most of the events in
-July 13, 2015: Updated Big Lenny's entry in Cast of Characters
and added, "Big Lenny gets shot with a taser" to Banned Videos.
It's tough to keep up with his insanity ...
-July 10, 2015: Added RC aka RZFitnessTV to Cast of Characters.
Added the "Calm down Bri" incident to Cliffs. Added the terms
Genovaverse/Genovasphere to the Glossary.
-July 04, 2015: Added Mark (from GetFitFast), Sean, Big Jay
Masters and Harvey to Cast of Characters. Added Jason's "break"
from YouTube, 2 week vacation from the gym after being sponsored
and the Craig Titus prison rape collab to Cliffs. Added "Jason
Genova pledges allegiance to Satan" and "Jason Genova's
sickening Xmas party, 2013!!" to Banned Videos.
