“I’ve never been to a public trial before. I’ve never stayed up overnight for anything in line, and I came at 12:45 a.m.,” Sabrina Harrison of Madison, Wisconsin, told People. “I’ve never done something like this in my 46 years of life.”
Another woman from the United Kingdom, Sharon Smith, 52, flew to Virginia so she could be at the trial when it began on April 11. She says she has spent around $10,000 on airfare, hotels, food, and drinks. She also lined up at the courthouse at 1 a.m. each day of the trial so she could be let inside.
“People keep saying, ‘Are you okay? Are you really okay?'” says Smith. “And I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m fine.'”

Neither of them hold a candle to Ivan De Boer, 59, of Los Angeles, though.
“I took my whole year’s vacation so I could be here for Johnny,” she told People. “I’m the same age as Johnny. I’m single, so I do what I want to, basically.”
When asked if she had any regrets about spending about $30,000 just to watch the trial, she replied, “No regrets. I’d regret it more if I wasn’t here.”
Many on the internet are having a hard time understanding this kind of behavior.
