A panel of five men, Nick, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Dr. Ish Major, Chris Distefano and Rip Micheals openly answered questions about taboo subjects in a January 2022 episode. When they were asked about their biggest fears, Rip spoke about how his comedy can be used as a shield to avoid being too open with others.

“I’m more scared of being vulnerable because, I mean, being a man, we’re raised to be so tough,” Rip said. “You know, I use comedy a lot to hide how I’m actually feeling and disguise it. So, yeah, I would say being vulnerable and allowing people to know who I really am. That’s my biggest fear.”

When the subject of the man panel discussion turned to intimacy, Nick revealed that he’s battled low self-esteem over his thin frame and addressed how it’s affected his sex life.

“I definitely have an insecurity when it comes to being intimate. I’ve been skinny my whole life, so therefore I’ve never liked to be completely naked,” Nick said. “It’s usually, like, I hide under the covers. As much as I boast about being in shape.”

“Guilt is the most useless emotion ever created. Guilt serves no purpose except the one that’s trying to use it to manipulate you,” he said. “Stop feeling guilty … You have to put yourself first. Look, the best way to take care of people is to demonstrate that you have the ability to take care of yourself.”
