In a recent poll, posted on a Teen Mom dedicated Reddit board, fans voted on which former cast member they would like to see make a return to the series.
The poll was titled “If you had to, who would you bring back?” and featured Teen Mom alums Farrah Abraham, 31, Jenelle Evans, 30, and Kailyn Lowry, 30, as nominees.
Of the two-thousand plus votes that had been cast, almost half of the tally went to the Teen Mom 2 favorite, Jenelle.
Adult entertainer Farrah followed the MTV star in second with podcaster Kailyn trailing close behind in last place.
In the comment thread below the poll, many voters expressed their reasoning as to why they’d like to see the North Carolina native return to the show.
One Redditor wrote, “Jenelle because I love train wrecks” while another person added that, “she brings all the drama.”
A third fan emphatically commented, “Jenelle PERIOD” with a fourth Redditor writing that “she makes for good reality tv lol”.
Another person commented: “Ju-nelle [sic] if she gets divorced from David the caveman.”

One Teen Mom fan agreed with the sentiment: “I only picked Jenelle ’cause she’s crazy and fun to watch, when David isn’t her husband that is.”

They continued, “But I’d never ever want for her to make the money she made before. So I hope they never bring her back and if they do they cut her pay dramatically.”
Another reasoned: “MTV would never hire David back, Jenelle would have to film solo like before and the same would happen with him making it difficult and threatening producers.”
The David Eason, 33, hate continued while love for Jenelle’s mom began to echo within the thread.
BRING BACK BABS
“Jenelle and Babs, but never David”, commented a fan while another exclaimed, “I’d say Jenelle only because I wanna see Babs!”
Other Redditors gave reasons for why they wouldn’t want Jenelle back on the reality series.
“Have to pick Kail because [Jenelle] and Farrah make my skin crawl”, explained one disgusted fan.
Another fan shared a similar feeling, writing “I said Kail, only because the thought of more money going to Farrah or Jenelle sickens me”.
Finally, one Teen Mom Redditor put things simply commenting that “Nobody can deny that Jenelle was the real MVP of Teen Mom 2 [laughing to tears emoji] Not for any good reasons of course, but the show was dry AF after she left”.
While another fan agreed: “[The show] would [have] been a flop without Jenelle.”
Due to a recent slump in ratings and much speculation online, MTV confirmed that it’s making changes within the Teen Mom franchise.
The network announced once and for all that Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 will merge into one show called Teen Mom: The Next Chapter.
The show will premiere in the near future, according to MTV, though a date has yet to be announced.
Viewers can still expect new seasons of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, Teen Mom Girls Night In, and Teen Mom: Family Reunion.
Per the description of the series, Teen Mom: The Next Chapter will focus on the casts of Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 at their current “stages of motherhood.”
The network notes: “Some have kids in diapers, while others are now parenting teenagers!”
The description continues: “But they all share the unique experience of [mommy-ing] so young. For the first time, the moms and all their stories will be brought together in one supersized series that focuses on the unique bond they share as they face the reality of parenthood and adulting while entering new phases of life together.”
RETURN TO TEEN MOM?
Jenelle recently revealed whether or not she’s returning to the MTV series after fans spot a ‘clue’ that she filmed new scenes.
Jenelle was fired from Teen Mom 2 in 2019 after a series of controversies involving herself and her husband David Eason.
In a YouTube video posted on Jenelle’s channel, the Teen Mom alum addressed her fans regarding the rumors surrounding her return to the show.
The MTV star discusses attending Tenn Mom costar Briana DeJesus, 27, court victory party, and the accommodations that were provided.
She then goes on to talk about how MTV was present during the party: “Did they film me? Yes, I signed an agreement to film.”
She quickly follows that up by saying, “We had a little bit of conversation when I arrived. [They asked] how am I doing lately and stuff like that”.
“But other than that”, she continues, “I just had fun”.
“So for everyone freaking the h**l out about this party, it was really about friends coming together.”
The gathering that sparked the fan rumors was Briana’s party to celebrate her count victory over Kailyn Lowry.
Jenelle was spotted attending her former 27-year-old cast member’s party over social media.
Another Teen Mom Jade Cline, 24, posted a behind-the-scenes photo of Jenelle at the party and some sharp-eyed fans noticed a few details.
One fan posted on Reddit: “Not only is Jenelle at the party, but Britanny’s got a mic on her… MTV cameras must be filming as we speak.”
A second fan asked: “I wonder if she thinks that this is her way back in with MTV?”
A third chimed in: “One of them posted a video that showed two of the camera guys filming. They were definitely there.”
Yet a fourth fan speculated: “I think Bri probably told her MTV was going to be there so David wasn’t invited.
“Jenelle probably saw it as an opportunity… but I bet David is pissed.”
