I am still baffled about how MTV is pushing this show. Admittedly I have watched it and think that there is a bit of glamorization element to these girls who are now celebrities based on just having a baby at 16 years old. Don’t get me wrong teen pregnancy is a issue that needs to be dealt with still getting used to it being done on a scripted reality show. Leaves the door open for young girls to try to get pregnant just to be on the show. This is like a reality version of the recent movie ‘A Pregnancy Pact’
Have any of you guys had the luxury of seeing this show? I have watched about three episodes and still trying to find out where this show is going. I suggest that you take a gander at the show and let me know what the hell this show aims to do in the long run.
Here is the casting call if your little sister happens to be “16 and Pregnant.” I will post an episode when vodpod starts acting right again.
MTV is casting again for our thought-provoking series: “16 and Pregnant” which airs on Thursdays at 10pm. This documentary series focuses on young women during their pregnancy. We realize that this is a sensitive subject that many of our young women are experiencing, so our goal is to show what pregnant women, from varying backgrounds, are experiencing in their everyday lives.
From morning sickness to mood swings, and to even the day of the baby’s arrival, we would like you to let us document this exciting, life changing event. This show will allow young women to share their story in their own voice.
As time is of the essence, please email me ASAP at 16andPregnantcasting@mtvnmix.com. Please include what city and state you live in, your contact details, a picture and why you would want to take part in this series.
