Netflix’s first Australian Reality Docu soap Byron Baes certainly revolved around a lot of controversies, but Jessica Johansen-Bell couldn’t care less. “I felt like the town would move on from it,” she said.
Let’s take a deeper look into her life as this Jessica Johansen-Bell Bio proceeds.
Jessica Johansen-Bell On Byron Baes
Netflix’s controversial reality show Byron Bay premiered on March 9, 2022, and there stood Jessica Johansen-Bell among 13 other influencers who helped each other grow their businesses, connections, and social followings in the Australian beach town of Byron Bay.
Explaining the show, Nathan Favro (a participant) said that the casts were a “tight crew of content creators” while Cai Leplaw labeled the coastal town “a mecca for influencers.”
Well, the theme was quite clear.
But while the show is undoubtedly addictive, many Twitter critics described Byron Baes as “cringeworthy” and “brain-numbing.”
“Byron Baes is horrific. But I will watch the entire thing,” a fan wrote.
Also, this wasn’t Byron Bay’s first criticism. Back when the show was still being filmed, locals began raising their voices in “alarm, disgust, and outrage” that the production flouted filming and environmental protocols. They alleged that the show presented a glossy and false impression of the place and cast out-of-towners as locals.
Producer, Paul Franklin acknowledges the local’s anger but shared they “got a lot of positive feedback too.”
Likewise, Jessica feels the same. “It wasn’t going to be a life-threatening situation. People might be angry about it and then see it, and maybe not be angry,” she explained.
As for the question, if the show’s scripted or not — two participants Saskia Wotton and Sarah Tangye, vouched that the show was 100% organic.
Joining Jessica in the inaugural season of Byron Bay were co-stars — Elle Watson, Sarah Tangye, Jade Kevin Foster, Simba Ali, Elias Chigros, Nathan Favro, Alex Reid, Dave Frim, Saskia Wotton, Hannah Brauer, Cai Leplaw, Elle Watson, and Lauren Johansen Bell.
