The first major hurdle this father-and-son modeling duo has to overcome is merely arriving in Los Angeles to begin their careers. Father JD and son Janis, 21, find themselves trapped in their homeland of Belgium as their work visas get delayed thanks to the current political climate. When they land, however, they make an immediate splash among the rest of the cast. JD is the only father on the show who is a present and stable force in his children’s lives. The tightness of JD’s family and marriage stands as a shining example to all the broken homes of his fellow cast mates – and mostly just serves to get them upset when JD proves to have a moralizing streak. The question with JD and Janis is, can they keep the family together in the face of all the pressures of LA and the modeling world? If they were hoping to find some good influences here in Los Angeles, they might have fallen in with the wrong crowd.
