Now that Teen Mom is officially over and the first cast we got to know and love is moving on (sob), the war for who gets the first spin-off has officially begun. Rumor has it that the competition right now is between Catelynn and Tyler and Maci.
Personally, I would love to see them both, but then I was also not quite ready to see the show stop. But if I had to choose between them, I would go with Catelynn and Tyler.
As far as I am concerned, Catelynn and Tyler are the poster children for smart teen pregnancy. They made the best, smartest choice and their lives are better for it.
I am so curious what will happen to them as they grow and change. Will Carly become less a part of their lives or more? Will their marriage be strong? Will they have more children?
They are really strong role models, and while Maci is also responsible and smart and her drama is good, I think Catelynn and Tyler have more to offer the world through being famous.
Their lesson is that a person can place a child and still have a life. Personally, if my teen daughter were pregnant, I would much rather see her go the Catelynn and Tyler route than the Maci one (although actually I would want her to choose the other option).
Let's face it: Having a baby at 17 or 18 isn't the ideal. Maci is doing the best she can, and she is a great, strong woman. But she isn't the kind of person I want my daughter to be.
Catelynn and Tyler show it's OK to feel your feelings and to work through them and to make the really hard decisions that some may deem "selfish." Catelynn and Tyler chose themselves and a better life for Carly. She has two parents who are married and happy. They have plenty of money and a home with space and enough left over for gymnastics, ballet, and everything a little girl could want.
The fact is, they made the right choice, the harder one, and the one I think more girls should consider. So give them the spin-off!
No one has had enough of these two yet. We all want to see what they can do. It's going to be awesome.
Who would you rather see in a spin-off?
