Perhaps no reality show on television has a more conflicted relationship with its viewers than Teen Mom 2.
Fans grew up with these cast members, and they’ve become invested in their personal struggles … but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they like the Moms.
When Jenelle Evans was fired, the move was universally applauded, and several other cast members aren’t much more popular.
Real-life plot twists such as Leah Messer joining a cult or Kailyn Lowry deciding to have yet another kid with deadbeat dad Chris Lopez have left fans feeling less like they’re rooting for relatable people with relatable problems and more like they’re eavesdropping on the lives of ultra-privileged budding Kardashians.
But one member of the cast has remained true to her humble roots, and a growing number of viewers say she’s the only thing that keeps them tuning in.
We’re talking, of course, about Chelsea Houska.
To describe the mother of four as a fan favorite would be a dramatic understatement.
Chelsea is the most popular Teen Mom on social media by a wide margin, and fans have been vocal in their desire to see her star in her own series.
“I fast forward though Briana,” one person tweeted to Chelsea during this week’s episode.
“I wish a network would just give you your own show who agrees?!” another echoed.
“We need a Chelsea and Cole plus 4 reality show! Love them to bits!!’ a third chimed in.
Well, a title that references the Gosselins probably wouldn’t be the greatest idea, as that situation didn’t work out well for anyone involved.
But the point is, Teen Mom 2 viewers seem to really, really, really want a Chelsea and Cole spinoff.
So will that ever actually happen?
Well, the disappointing answer is … maybe?
Chelsea is the only cast member whose star is on the rise, and that’s been the case for quite some time.
Pair that with the discouraging Teen Mom 2 ratings — which have been on the decline for years — and it’s not hard to imagine a scenario in which producers approach the DeBoers about starring in a show of their own.
Chelsea is pregnant with her fourth child, and she and Cole recently purchased a massive estate in her native South Dakota, so she could certainly use the money.
But they also value their privacy more than any other couple on the show.
If TM2 comes to an end, Chelsea might decide that it’s time for her to just be a stay-at-home mom for a while.
And with her sponsored content and endorsement deals, she’s got several other revenue streams available to her.
As a bonus, Cole DeBoer is one of very few Teen Mom dads with a career outside of the show.
David Eason still won’t find a real job, and he got fired from MTV over two years ago!
Meanwhile, Cole is earning six figures from the network and still heading off to do real work every day!
So it’s tough to say what Cole and Chelsea might have in mind for …read more
