"It does feel like I'm being put on the spot, having my siblings talk at me instead of to me," she said in a confessional on the show, as OK! reported. "And I know everyone wants to help out but it's just such a personal struggle to break this cycle of negativity."

She and Sander even got into a heated argument during one of the episodes, after the 23-year-old told his sister she was "making excuses" about losing weight. "You're the one lying to yourself," Sander declared at the time, causing Jazz to admit the pressure to lose weight has been "negatively impacting" her mental health.
