After month of rumors circulating that a third show would be added to the insanely popular Teen Mom franchise, MTV has finally confirmed that there will be a Teen Mom 3! On Monday, MTV circulated a press release to media outlets informing them that the rumors were true!
Although the information contained in the press release was sparse, it did give us a little bit of gossip on the new series. It will follow four girls chosen from 16 & Pregnant Season 4.
(Wanna meet the girls that will be on Season 4? The Ashley has all the info and photos of all 12 new girls here!)
As of right now, we have no idea as to which four girls will be chosen for the new ‘Teen Mom’ show; however, based on her own creepy sleuthing and what we’ve seen in the trailer, The Ashley some idea of who might get a slot. (Of course, this is in no way confirmed to be the cast, so don’t get all excited. This is strictly The Ashley’s opinion.)
Based on what we’ve seen, these are the four girls The Ashley thinks we’ll be following in the new ‘Teen Mom 3’ series. It’s been rumored that the old-school ‘Teen Mom’ girls will be peacing out after Season 4, meaning that MTV is going to have to replace their show with this new installment.
Why She’ll Make It: Alexandria seems to have the drama that a ‘Teen Mom 3’ show desperately needs. Although I wouldn’t go as far as to call her ‘The Amber’ or ‘The Jenelle’ of ‘Teen Mom 3,’ she does seem to have a relatively dramatic story line that could earn her a spot on the new show. She seems to have a mega-dose of baby-daddy drama, as well as struggles within her own family.
Why She’ll Make It: Mackenzie seems to have the same Southern belle appeal that helped Leah Messer and Maci Bookout secure spots on the previous shows. From what we know about Mackenzie, she seems to be from a supportive family and has a baby-daddy that has stuck around. She’s already generated a lot of buzz just from what we’ve seen of her on the trailer. It also helps that she’s a dead ringer for Jamie Lynn Spears.
Why She’ll Make It: Kristina is the girl who lost her baby-daddy in an accident while she was pregnant with their son. Like Farrah Abraham of the original cast, Kristina is raising her child alone due to death. (A lot of the ’16 & Pregnant’ girls end up being single mothers, but it’s mostly because their baby-daddies are creepnuggets, not because they have passed away, so her story is unique.) Kristina has such an intriguing story (in which I will post more info on soon!), The Ashley finds it hard to believe that she will not get a place on ‘Teen Mom 3!’
Why She’ll Make It: The Ashley had a tough time choosing the final girl she feels will make it on the show, but she finally settled on Myranda Trevino, simply because she seems to have a fantastic relationship with her baby-daddy. The couple could possibly be the “Catelynn and Tyler” replacement, even though Myranda did not choose adoption and ended up keeping the baby. (I highly doubt MTV would ever choose another girl that didn’t have their baby with them to be on a ‘Teen Mom’ show, as they’ve forever struggled to explain why Catelynn is on the show if she’s not an active mother and would not want to have to deal with that again, in my opinion.)
Which girls would you like to see on ‘Teen Mom 3’ based on what we know about them thus far?
