    Never heard of it & can pretty much guarantee I’ll never see it either.

  • Nifty

    This was actually a nice show. I had never heard of it before. If MTV did some more stuff like this, it probably wouldn’t be the butt of so many jokes.

  • Other Than THAT Mrs. Lincoln How Was The Play

    Im guessing that Chad didnt accidentally bury a hatchet in Jenks skull by accident at some point and say “Ohhhh Jenks, man Im so sorry I killed you, I guess I spent too much time watching Walking Dead. Either that or you just annoyed me one too many times.” Its safe to assume a guy like Jenks would be totally useless during a Zombie Pocky-Clips.

  • Other Than THAT Mrs. Lincoln How Was The Play

    I love how they put the gun violence thing in there without addressing why it happens to rapper dudes so often. Its the inner city hood rapper culture Jenks, ya big dummy.

  • Two Teenager Mom

    It’s nice to see that a show with a positive message is getting noticed. I watch this show with my daughter and we both relate to it. Watching Chad and Amanda’s parents aws the kids went off to the prom brought tears to my eyes. I think every mom can related to Kaylin’s mom talking about finding out about her cancer. A parent’s worst nightmare. I wish the best for these three people and thanks to Andrew and MTV for highlighting such truly remarkable life experiences.
