Tad Reeves was born into a Scientology family, and has been a Scientologist his whole life. He attended the Delphi school in Oregon. He is being showcased by Scientology as an example of how normal and wholesome Scientologists really are. This is his message to A&E and is obviously scripted. His sister is in the Sea Org, and it's impossible to say to what extent he's been pressured to assume the role of a "normal person" who just happens to be a Scientologist.
