A Teen Mom star is heading out to the wilderness…in her birthday suit!
The Ashley can exclusively confirm that Maci Bookout, who stars on Teen Mom OG, will appear on a special “Celebrity” edition of the Discovery Channel reality show Naked and Afraid!
Multiple sources have confirmed to The Ashley that Maci has already shot the episode of the show, which places people out in the wilderness and forces them to fend for themselves against the elements, all while being naked.
“Maci spent a great deal of time training for the show before she left,” one source tells The Ashley. “She got to bring a few extra ‘personal’ items than the typical contestant on the show, but other than that, she didn’t get a lot of special treatment.”
The Ashley’s sources tell her that Maci kept things extremely hush-hush, and that most of the other ‘Teen Mom’ cast members didn’t even know she was filming for the new show. Her contract for ‘Teen Mom OG’ was not affected.
“Because this show has nothing to do with Maci’s life as a teen parent, it was not a problem for her to do it,” another source tells The Ashley. “It doesn’t matter that it’s not a Viacom-owned show.”
The Ashley will have more info on this soon, so stay tuned!
A rep for Maci had “no comment” when asked by The Ashley.
Discovery Channel has revealed that the new season of ‘Naked and Afraid’ premieres March 11, so we can assume Maci’s episode will run this season.
