Lauren (Belle) and Ko (Jenkins) are “The Belle Jenkins Show”.
Lauren and Koku are based in Cincinnati and Brooklyn, respectively. The two met in 2005 at a happy hour and became fast friends. This is not their first video venture, as they have also starred in a documentary about a trip to Wal-Mart.
Lauren introduced the vlog idea to the message board they frequent, hosting a series of popular Q&A sessions in which she responded to user inquiries through video. She encouraged others to join in, which eventually led to the duo’s co-vlogging.
The Belle Jenkins Show is a shameless effort, as the duo hopes the popularity of the vlogs will eventually land them a spot on VH1’s “Best Week Ever”.
