Despite the fact that cameras have been following the Jordans for weeks while they go to school, shop around town and play their favorite sports, the worldâ€™s smallest living siblings are exceedingly shy when doing this media interview. â€śBriâ€™s really nervous about this,â€ť confesses their mom, Christy, from their home in southern Illinois.
We do learn that Bradâ€™s the messy one, and Briâ€™s the neat freak. Brad doesnâ€™t watch a ton of TV but when pressed would probably pick Ghost Hunters as a favorite. Bri eventually pipes in and tells us she enjoys shows like Jersey Shore, Dog the Bounty Hunter and Cops. Sheâ€™s a total â€śTwilight freakâ€ť and aligns with Team Jacob. Brad confesses heâ€™s somewhat of a Call of Duty addict, although he quickly says, â€śI do go outside a lotâ€ť where he enjoys playing basketball and other sports. Heâ€™s also an exceptional gymnast, and they are both cheerleaders at their local college â€” Kaskaskia College.
â€śBradleyâ€™s very undersized but heâ€™s part of the drama team there, heâ€™s part of the cheerleading team and he just takes off and does everything that everybody else does,â€ť Christy shares. â€śBradâ€™s focus is in music and acting. Bri wants to do fashion design; sheâ€™s been taking some general courses because thereâ€™s not a fashion design degree.â€ť
While height isnâ€™t a challenge for intellectual study, Christy says itâ€™s the average things in life that pose the obstacles. â€śDoing laundry, trying to get clothes into a washer where the washer is taller than you are and thereâ€™s no way you can reach the bottom. Cooking meals. Getting in and out of the refrigerator. Reaching for things at the grocery store. Some of it we donâ€™t even think twice about, and then when you stop and think about it you see how hard those things really are for them.â€ť
â€śWhen Brad came along [heâ€™s two years younger than Bri], we realized we had to treat Bri just like she was an average-sized kid. There are things we canâ€™t do and there are things that they canâ€™t do and we had to make that a frame of mind. We embraced my older daughter [who is average height] and nieces to hold us in check with that. Thatâ€™s what makes them realize itâ€™s not an obstacle â€” you just have to figure if you canâ€™t do it the same way everyone else does, weâ€™ll have to figure out another way to make it work.â€ť
And in the series youâ€™ll see just how they do it.
â€śThey donâ€™t act like theyâ€™re little, they donâ€™t realize theyâ€™re little and if you are around us long youâ€™ll realize we donâ€™t realize theyâ€™re little,â€ť Christy says. â€śWe just treat them like an average-size person. â€¦ They live in the big world, so we had to figure out how to live in the big world because the worldâ€™s not going to adjust for you.â€ť
