Also, does anyone else get super annoyed and a little grossed out when he kisses June? I’m really nitpicking here, but the sound it makes on the camera is so gross.

I haven't watched but i'm glad he said that. One of my biggest pet peeves are fathers that say that crap. You are not a babysitter, you are a fucking DAD!! I'm glad he agrees

Did Corbin flat-out lie to Kelsey about fixing her ring?? He didn't get the loose diamonds fixed and implied to her that he did. He even said the first jewelry place wouldn't clean the ring because of the loose diamonds - so he went to another place that probably just wanted the $$$ and cleaned it regardless. That would be shitty if she lost a diamond because he lied about it.

Considering that the stones in her ring came from Corbin’s mother’s collection, that would be particularly thoughtless of him. He didn’t buy the stones in the first place, so he probably doesn’t care. My first thought was that Kelsey couldn’t wear her wedding ring for a while on account of the weight she gained, but then I heard Kelsey thanking him for getting the loose diamond fixed. Um, I have a feeling she’s going to watch today’s vlog and realize she was duped.

It sounds like he went to the first place months ago to get it cleaned, and was told they would need to fix the loose stones. Money was tight so he declined, and took the ring home and she hasn’t worn it since on account of the loose stones. Corbin takes it to a second place months later and gets the second opinion that the stones are fine and it just needs an inexpensive clean. I would be dubious, better to be safe than sorry.

It’s pretty funny that Corbin expects his viewers to believe that she couldn’t wear her ring for months because it just needed to be cleaned and tried to sidestep the loose stones thing. I like to get my diamond cleaned because it’s extra sparkly afterwards and it’s a good opportunity for the jeweler to check the prongs, but if it’s “dirty” it doesn’t affect my ability to wear it for months. Instead of correcting her when she said he got the loose stones fixed, he just nodded along. He seems too comfortable with lying.

They MUST be working with a company or brand to redo their rental's backyard. I can't imagine they are throwing away $1000s on sod, a fire pit and garden boxes just to host June's b-day party. Plus, that's a TON of work and upkeep. When I lived in a rental house in LA the landlord hired a service to take care of the yard (but it was already established and wasn't a HUGE space).

I just can't imagine starting from rocky soil and trying to make it look nice AND it not be your own house. Shouldn't they be saving that $$$$ for the house they plan to buy?? They have strange priorities.

I remember the NiveNulls did a big remodeling project at their former rental house, but that was also a sponsored brand deal with I'm thinking Home Depot. It was years ago and an entire film crew came over.

That's NUTS. A rental? I can't imagine spending that kind of money on a rental. Unless their landlord is giving them a discount on rent. Or it's a brand deal. I laughed at myself for buying a flat of ice plants to put out front of a rental I lived in, and some flowers. But at least I got a yellow ribbon from the little old ladies who went around judging the front yards of everyone in Coronado!

Huh?! Spending money to improve a place you are renting is absolutely the worst waste of $$$$. Those backyard "improvements" are literally going to be several thousand dollars - sod is super spendy!!!! It's not like they can take the grass with them when they move in six months!! LOL, that would be funny!

I'm guessing it's a sponsorship and hoping they didn't trick Corbin's parents into buying all that stuff. Weird his parents are there again within a month after never seeing them for almost a full year!!

Someone else suggested his parents are around more/giving them gifts and $$$$ because Corbin and Kelsey have agreed to move back to Idaho after their SoCal lease is up this summer. I'm starting to actually think that might be correct!

I just noticed Kelsey and Corbin weren't at Bryan's birthday party! I think that's a BIG sign that Corbin and Bryan had a falling out. I seriously wonder what happened!!!

Judging by their “talk” at the end of the vlog, it sounds like they really don’t have a sponsor of any kind paying for this and they really are paying out of pocket.

If they are getting some kind of credit from the landlord, which I doubt based on how they’ve described the rental company in the past, why wouldn’t they mention that? It would make them look less foolish and it would address a lot of the questions they’re getting from viewers who are trying to understand why they would be sinking so much money into a property that doesn’t belong to them when they say they want to buy this year.

I don’t see any reason they would need to be secretive about it if it came from a formal business sponsor or from their landlord. If it is sponsored, they would need to disclose that. They have something like nine months left on their lease? Why not get off their butts and take their kid to the park for the next nine months? They have no concept of delayed gratification. It's a good possibility that they have no clue how much this backyard is going to cost and what the maintenance is going to be like in a drought-prone area.

The sudden reappearance of Corbin’s parents and the absence of Missy & Bryan makes me think that they’ve switched back to accepting assistance from Corbin’s parents rather than the Lannings. LOL In all serious, it is super odd and telling that they’re already making plans to leave the state after only a couple months.

We didn't have a good yard in Coronado, and did our kids' birthday parties in the park for years. Nothing wrong with it.

Once again, they have to show off how entitled they are.

Not to mention that the landlord could sue the shit out of them for making improvements to the home if they did not approve them. landlords can be assholes like that and it could be justified. If they plant sod and do fancy landscaping then the landlord now has MORE overhead for this property after C&K move out. One more thing for them to maintain. They need to be careful what they do, if they screw up something THEY will be responsible for the repairs AND could be facing a pending lawsuit.

The way I see it... Their content is horrendous. The only thing that put a spark into the channel was them talking about their disaster of a house / rental agreement. Not only does this bring in views but it sets them up for many more videos revolving around this. If they can keep viewers or up their audience numbers then its a win. Weather or not they asked the landlord for approval they obviously think the risk or potential punishment is worth the enjoyment they will get from actually being able to use the backyard they pay for every month. Plus the upside could be a monetary gain. They always have Bryan and Missy and mommy and daddy to pull them out if they fall too far into the hole.

P.S. I hate their floor plan. I wouldn't want to be inside either.

One of the obvious issues that they don't seem to understand is sod can be tricky and you can't even walk on if for 2+weeks after it's installed. I don't think they understand the process - it's not an instant perfect lawn from Better Homes and Gardens magazine. In fact, all lawn/yard stuff takes time to get established. Aren't they moving when the lease is up at the end of August/beginning of September?? That's not very long to enjoy it. It just seems so pointless and stupid and impractical!

I guess investing in the backyard means no travel all summer? I can't believe they'd have the $$$ for both. I honestly can't believe they have the money to reno the backyard to begin with! Do they even have a lawnmower?

What jackasses only sod half a lawn. It's obvious that his parents have been footing the bill lately. Neither of them work at all. They have expensive taste for people who have no job or savings at all. Them moving is obviously because they can't afford it and the only reason they're waiting the amount they are is to not break the lease. Their biggest reason for moving from Oregon was that they wanted to be near family and friends. Yet they plan on moving to a place they have never lived ? Sure. I bet their cash cows will put an end to that and insist if they're buying a house it be near them.

Also Kelsey is a moron. She does from using hee $400 diaper bag to that POS that is too small for anything.

Corbin is scum. I think that it's funny that something clearly happened. Brian won't even be in the same area as him. Everyone came to see Missy's horse and then Brian comes after they leave. I want to know what happened.

Missy and Kelsey were chatting like bestfriends at the play and Bryan was off to the far end only speaking to missy while Corbin was way off on the other end not talking to anyone lol... and honestly I bet Corbin was a shitty employee, we know his work ethics. My guess is Bryan and Corbin fought over: the amount being paid, the numbers of hours worked, or something related. Corbin is very entitled I could see him thinking he deserved a huge pay cut bc Bryan has the money to do so. Like no sir, just because he makes a million a year doesn’t mean your part time assistant job equals to being paid a full damn salary... OR maybe Corbin realized working for Bryan meant having to do shit like wear an elf costume and eat nasty spaghetti lol...


I imagine they thought M and B were inviting them out to CA to be part of a 'vlog squad' type setup where they're in each other's videos hanging out all the time. Whereas Corbin really was just...Bryan's assistant. To me them obviously not being allowed to vlog certain things says pretty clearly that Corbin was there to work, not become yt famous off Bryan's back. I actually think maybe the move to CA was Bryan's way of saying 'I'm not financing your channel anymore'. by giving him a job and a house as a fallback.
Just a quick note:
The twins are here! Baby girls A & B both born healthy and beautiful on 05/01/17. We couldn't be happier.

I can absolutely see Bryan balking at continuing to supplement Corbin and Kelsey's lifestyle, especially since they seem unable to budget. My family helps me out, but I don't run around buying expensive things, and acting like I'm too good to work! And they're not family. I would have a hard time supporting friends who acted like a part time job was beneath them, and always had to have the best, even though they can't afford it. And I am sure my family would stop helping if I acted like that too. Plus, we have a plan, and an end in sight, and it seems that these two are expecting help indefinitely.
I also believe that C&K thought they were going to be like Team 10 or something, and get a big boost from being in B&M's vlogs all the time. And that Corbin didn't want to really be Bryan's assistant.

Now I really wonder why they rushed to move from Portland to SoCal in September. They still had 3-4 months on their apartment lease in Portland (and probably had to pay to get out of it). Now they live in a crappy rental house (which they didn't even see before they moved) in a remote suburb and seem sort of miserable and still lonely. Did they need to move fast because Corbin was working for Bryan? Did he last even two months working for the Lannings??

Something definitely happened because the Lannings didn't even invite them to Bryan's b-day or to that pool place - they invited annoying Jinger and Carl...who live in UTAH! I also really want to know what happened between Bryan and Corbin!!!!

Did they stop posting videos on Mondays?? I have zero interest in Kelsey's channel content, so it seems like a waste to post only there.

Yep.. i manage 50+ rental houses. Pretty much any unapproved improvements to the home would be considered breaking the lease and could mean eviction and the tenant having to pay for repairs. Granted i might not see something as benign as painting a bedroom a neutral color without permission an offence to kick you out, but if you paint the living room neon pink and green stripes then we are going to have issues. You would not be getting back your full security deposit, i can tell you that for sure! Laying sod?? Not gonna happen without a fight, nope nope nope..

Off topic but we have a "neighbor" who just built a brand new house about 1.5 years ago. Had sod laid. He has NO IDEA how to maintain this lawn and has mowed the damn thing to death. He did not let it get established before he started mowing it and continues to mow it EVERY FUCKING WEEKEND. I mean it's his grass and his money so whatever you want to do buddy.. my wild and natural lawn looks a million times better than his patchy brown mess that he has now.

I would kill to know what happened. Honestly I think all C&K's living above their means has caught up to them. Kelsey getting her hair and nails done bi-weekly and shit is a bit much. I just love how they cherry pick this whole earth mother hippie persona they're trying to portray. Neither could care less about that. They like their fancy laid back easy life too much

We know working for Bryan wouldn't be a picnic and Corbin can't hold down a job to save his life, so it was going to end badly. Even I'm surprised that it imploded that quickly. Did they take the first couple of paychecks from Bryan, buy that expensive furniture, and then immediately plan their exodus from California? Not taking part in Bryan's birthday is another telling sign.

If you look at their social blade figures, it almost looks like they could be making a decent living, until you realize that's pre-tax and before Fullscreen takes their 30% share. And this is after they got a pretty decent bump from moving to CA and cross promoting with the Lannings. They must have really been struggling in Portland. I'm questioning how they even afforded this move in the first place. I'm reasonably sure they depleted any savings they had on their van trip, and they immediately jumped into the very expensive venture of having a baby. Not to mention any student loans or credit card debt they had. I don't know how they added a car payment to that. All of that to say, I don't know how they could afford this move in the first place. One of the rentals they were looking at was $1,900 a month, so I'm assuming this rental is in a similar price range. They certainly don't need a four bedroom single family home. I wonder how much of this move was financed by Missy & Bryan. I wouldn't be surprised if they co-signed the lease for them.

I couldn't figure out why they thought they needed such a big rental. Weren't they trying to be all "minimalist", living in the studio in Portland? And then they move into a four bedroom rental, and need all this furniture to fill it. Not "minimalist" at all.
I don't think they know _how_ they want to live. Be hippies who like to camp. and travel? Be a little suburban family? Honestly, I think that they would adopt whatever lifestyle got them the most views.

I think this is all spot on. Just add on a couple factors.... Sponsored videos* AND they work for that other channel, Baby League...both were something Bryan did and knows how to help Corbin set up. Those extras certainly help!

I think the cross promo was hurting DB's brand. They were doing the same things every day together. It was too much and it took away from their brands. I think they still hang out when possible but there was a mutual decision to step away from FILMING each other while together...Remember that whole prank thing corbin and kelsey tried to pull off on the bumps? It was pretty lame. For some reason I don't think the bumps appreciated the poorly executed 'prank'.

I also think the quick move was because bryan and missy were playing mother hubbard and decided moving by them "would be great!" I'm sure they offered to help them make the move down (rental/moving service) and help them find a rental (just like they did), and to help establish their channel. Originally there must have been a project bryan and Corbin were working on because it made it seem like that's why Corbin was down there in the first place.

With all that said, why wouldn't they move? Its closer to family, provides the stability they NEED to raise a daughter, and gives them CHEAP housing with space for their daughter to grow. Despite the disgusting weather the move was probably the best decision for these vagabonds.

Yes! I completely agree with you. Corbin is just so slimy and all he really care about other than his precious bug is making the almighty dollar at whatever cost it maybe. He is just such a poser and hearing him say my love 300 thousand times makes me want to hide under rock. Kelsey has the worst smile two... only he could love her.
