Question #10 was a bit tricky, because Bubba does make a school video of his family for a college project in season 4. He edits the video in order to make it more interesting. So, I would think that answer would be true. But, I guess it was a question only about making a video of Mama Harper’s house, and not the family.
That episode is hilarious. 😆
