In a shocking statement, Instagram officials have declared an influencers crisis in Lebanon. “90% of Lebanese Instagram accounts are now business profiles for personal trainers, life coaches, fashionistas, bloggers, vloggers, influencers, and digital media trainers“, said Kevin Systrom, CEO and co-founder of Instagram. The remaining 10% of the accounts are now occupied by regular people who have average bodies and looks, with a bad taste in clothing and restaurant choices. This decline has left influencers with no one to influence now.
“I am barely getting 100 likes per post. It’s frightening to see that all your hard work is not influencing anyone“, Sara, a fashionista from Beirut, who takes photos of herself shopping at Zara and Bershka and posts them to her Instagram page, has told Mawtoura.
Johny, a travel and food blogger who photoshops and saturates all his photos to a point where Lebanon looks like Pandora from Avatar, has also complained about the crisis: “Hotels stopped contacting me and I am not getting free food anymore. I am really afraid I would starve in few weeks.”
Ali, a fitness influencer, had more than 20K followers on Instagram, who eagerly waited his daily selfies at the gym and motivational quotes. “No one cares about my Insta stories anymore. Also, I am running out of google quotes“, he said. Ali is thinking about de-activating his account but he’s worried that his followers might be shocked and depressed later.
Yesterday, I posted a video (link) about the abundance of titles in miss and mister summer 2017 on OTV, and the followers comments were hilarious.
New titles were suggested
Some of them fit me perfectly
Leish el kezeb ya mama, Leish?
No one left unhappy, including the audience. Thanks OTV.
Horny followers of course

And the winner is
On August 25, Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, announced exciting news for our beloved Lebanon. A new color for Google Traffic is heading towards the Google Maps app and it’s going to be a majestic “black”.
For those who are unfamiliar with Google Traffic, the app uses colors to indicate the traffic conditions ranging from green (fast) to orange (okay) to red (slower) to dark red (slow).
“We wanted something more meaningful than just ‘slow‘, to truly describe the situation in Lebanon. So we decided to add the black color and we labeled it fucking blocked“, added Pichai.

It is time, ladies and gentlemen, to lay down the final judgment on this year entertainment shows on Lebanese channels.
After a survey conducted over a long period (15 minutes), involving thousands of people (me), we got the final results. Here are the hits and misses of 2016, in my opinion.
Best (not necessarily in order)
1. Lahon w Bas (LBC)
The whole show works. Hisham and Jad make a perfect duo on screen, due to their off-screen friendship, natural sense of humor, and good stand-up comedy skills. Guests seem to enjoy the interview and Hisham always succeeds in making them feel home, shedding the light on their cute and funny side. I even enjoyed Maguy Bou Ghosn’s interview.
2. Menna w Jerr (MTV)
I love this show. Pierre Rabbat is probably “the” guy you go to when you want to buy a format and execute it in Lebanon. The co-hosts are doing their jobs right, especially Mona Saliba and Rola kaady. I even enjoy Ghassan Rahbani’s lame jokes. But the real star of the show is probably Elie Sleiman.
3.Hayda Taba3 el akhbar (Al Jadeed)
When smart meets funny. This show is basically a history-politics class delivered with smart humor and extensive research put into each and every episode.
4.Metl al amar and Amir el Leil (MTV and LBC)
Yes, they are crappy series, full of mistakes, bad acting, and lame storylines, but hey, that’s what makes them GREAT entertainment shows! Thank you for making 2016 enjoyable.
1. Bala Teshfir (Al Jadeed)
Tammam Bleik should be banned from TV. His questions and interviewing approach stopped being interesting in 1992. Regarding his guests, eskot ya lsani…
2.Hayda Haki (MTV)
Adel Karam is a great actor, but he failed as a late night show host. Successful hosts might suck in acting as well. Maybe it’s time to take a break. Even the new additions, Adele and co, couldn’t save the show from sinking into a lame 2-hour trip.
3. Basmat Watan (the new format)
Copying Abla Fahita was not a smart move. The old format was better, wittier and funnier. While doma kratiyé, created by the same person, is brilliant, Basmat watan fails to deliver this season, let alone the racist jokes.
4. Take me out Na2ashit (LBC)
The show’s idea is not bad itself. I find it entertaining. The execution however, is disastrous. Sexual jokes stopped being funny in 2002. Sexism is not funny. The staged performances of Fouad Yammine, the girls, and the guys are ridiculous.
