Adrian Jessen started the Review This Thing YouTube channel in 2020 after deciding that she felt like YouTube needed better reviews: reviews that would be complete - answering all possible questions, honest - sharing real-life experiences, and unbiased - not blowing smoke because of compensation or sponsorship. Her husband Robbie, an avid hunter and outdoorsman, joined in on the YouTube fun a year later and also started their website: www.reviewthisthingtv.com where you can read fun articles, more reviews, and see the latest deals. As lovers of the outdoors, they review firearms, ammunition, hunting gear, and general outdoor gear. In addition to a passion for most things outdoors, Adrian’s heart is that she can help people feel confident and comfortable about their purchasing decisions without having to waste time or money. You can also find them on Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok.
