Lunchbox boasts 201,000 followers on his Instagram page. Recently on the show he voiced frustration with the fact that he isn't a 'verified' account like Bobby. In fact, no one on the show is verified besides Bobby.
A verified badge is a check that appears next to an Instagram account's name in search and on the profile. It means that Instagram has confirmed that this is the authentic account for the public figure, celebrity or global brand it represents. However, pretty much the only way to get verified on Instagram is to be a "chosen one" by the company. It's all about luck and good aesthetics and engagement on your page, oh and being famous... really famous.
The show wanted to really see how angry Lunchbox was about this verification thing so we told him 8 other people who are verified over him on Instagram. The list includes people from reality TV to celebrities' dogs.
These individuals all have made notable contributions or are on recognizable brands so the verifications make sense.
