"ben has a real attitude problem but we're working on it (ily ben)," they reassured about No. 2.

"fei literally hangs with birds???" they asked about No. 3.

"alphonso is a bully!!!" they exclaimed about No. 4.

"sloane thinks she's totally above us..." they scoffed about No. 5.

"jayme drives us MAD," they declared about No. 6.

"christopher is a total square," they quipped about No. 7.
