Tana Mongeau has opened up to her fans about Season 2 of MTV No Filter, admitting she hated filming the show “at such a bad time,” especially considering she was in the “darkest” place of her life.

Tana Mongeau’s second season of her MTV show titled ‘No Filter’ has been received with mixed reception. While die-hard fans are by her side, others have criticized how the YouTuber treated those close to her, and her disregard for health issues.

Mongeau has looked to clarify the situation, opening up about her struggles with addiction, depression, and physical health in a YouTube tell-all on March 30.

Tana Mongeau got emotional after opening up about Season 2 of MTV’s No Filter.

On top of that, she also wanted to remind fans about how dramatized the reality show is, and that she “hates” how it’s portrayed her as a person.

Season 2 of No Filter was filmed just after her break-up with Jake Paul, and the YouTuber was struggling to even “get out of bed” for days. However, she wanted to tell her story in the most “brutally honest” way, which she now regrets.

“I said that the only way I could stomach filming this season is if it’s brutally honest, which now I just hate saying out loud,” she said. “If me struggling physically and mentally is filmed, I’m fine showing that to the world if there’s a message behind it.

“I sat down with MTV and had these conversations, and we all kind of came to the conclusion that that’s what Season 2 would be about. It would be about the journey of me to better myself mentally and physically.”

For mobile readers, the related segment begins at 4:22.

Her low-points throughout filming were overly dramatized, according to Mongeau, and that the reality show’s selective editing demonized her. This boiled over in Episode 5, when she had a fight with Jordan Worona, her manager, which Mongeau labeled as “sarcastic.

“A lot of the things that are now edited to look like this serious fight were sarcastic things we were saying to each other, or it was five minutes of a heated discussion that gets chopped up into two minutes of a really heated discussion,” she said.

“Fast forward to today, all of that only made us stronger. Our bond is so unbreakable. I feel like so much of a better person for it, so it sucks seeing the whole world think that I take him for granted. It was just a really bad time.”

For mobile readers, the related segment begins at 18:35.

She couldn’t help but feel hard done by the way the show had been edited though. Mongeau maintained that all she wants in life is to be a “nice person,” and by filming during her deepest rut, people saw the worst of her.

“MTV wanted the drama, and I didn’t think the episode would end up the way it did,” she said. “There’s probably people who are still skeptical when it comes to that, but I know my truth to this.

“I hate that I filmed the show at such a bad time, when I wasn’t being nice all the time. I hate who I was at the time shooting the show. I wish that footage wasn’t out there, and I wish I didn’t give anyone the opportunity to edit me like that.”

It comes after Mongeau faced backlash from fans over her treatment of friends in recent episodes. As people criticized her, she said the show is only a small snippet of her life, and everything she does outside of it is to help others.

“I just wanna focus on helping the world right now, and I hate this drama,” she said on March 24. “I’m literally sick at the way I look in the public eye right now.”


NickEh30 gets Twitch streamer banned for allegedly stream sniping

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
