    There is no way I could pick a favorite. Every single person on this show has a special place in my heart. Kevin for the way he is trying so hard to figure out his life and the way he relies on his sister for confidence. Kate for her struggle with weight, and insecurities. Randall with his anxiety and trying to forgive his mom for keeping his dad from him all those years. Becca for her love of family and her singing career. Jack for putting all husbands & dads to shame every week! LOL This is THE BEST SHOW ON TV TO DATE! ❤
