-- BIG TINY Premieres August 13 at 10 PM ET/PT--

 

TLC opens the door to the extraordinary life of Bridgette (Bri) and Bradley (Brad) Jordan, the world's smallest siblings in the new series BIG TINY. Crowned the "World's Shortest Living Woman," Bri weighs 18-pounds and stands at a diminutive 27-inches while her brother, Brad, weighs 35-pounds and stands at 38-inches, making them the world's shortest living brother and sister. But, don't let their size fool you. With booming self-confidence, unbelievable athleticism and larger-than-life personalities, Bri and Brad tackle everyday life just like anybody else.

This captivating new series gives an inside look at how two unique siblings fighting the odds, make something big out of being tiny on BIG TINY beginning Monday, August 13 at 10 PM ET/PT. It's a big world out there, but these primordial dwarf siblings don't let being tiny slow them down. Most people in their early 20's don't ride in car seats, shower in the kitchen sink or need help lifting a bag of sugar but for 23-year-old Bri and 21-year-old Brad these are just a few of their everyday life obstacles. Despite the fact that these unusual tendencies are constants in their lives, Brad and Bri really are your "average" young adults. Whether they are grocery shopping, attending college, cheerleading or eating lunch with friends, Bri and Brad live a typical everyday life and overcome any challenge with a smile on their face and an "I can do it" attitude.  Living in Sandoval, Illinois with their mother Christy Jordan, a registered nurse, and older sister Brandi, the self-proclaimed "outcast" of the family for being average height, the dynamic duo is surrounded by a many friends and supportive relatives who add to their anything but ordinary life. From camping excursions and trips to Las Vegas to doctors' visits and completing household chores, Bri and Brad take on anything life throws their way - no matter how big or how small. More about the Jordan family:

  • Brad: This pocket-sized cheerleader has huge ambition despite his small size. Brad doesn't let his size deter from his gymnastic, karate, social skills or his over-the-top sense of humor - which often comes out through song.
  • Bri: The "boss" of the family is one tough cookie despite her struggles with her small size and impeding trach. Sometimes the frustration gets to her, but her mother is always there to tell her she can do it - and she does. Whether it's baking cupcakes, looking after her nieces or gossiping with friends, Bri doesn't let her size dictate her life.
  • Christy: The proud mother of Brad, Bri and Brandi, Christy hasn't let her tiny twenty-something-year-olds live their life saying "I can't," instilling the mantra "can't doesn't live here" in them from a very young age. Treating her tiny tots as if they are taller than her, she says they live a very average life.
  • Brandi: The oldest sibling of the bunch, Brandi is extremely close to her little brother and sister and has never let their height affect their bond.
