The Ashley Reality Roundup site is reporting that MTV has picked Cheyenne Floyd to replace Farrah on the hit series. Who is Cheyenne you ask? She has starred in popular MTV shows such as Are You The One? and The Challenge, and shares 1-yr-old daughter Ryder with her former co-star Cory Wharton.
So why did MTV bypass the Mackenzies? Apparently, there was a lackluster response to both ladies.
“[The network] realized that the fans weren’t going to be excited about either option,” a source reveals. “So they continued to look.”
Mckee was reportedly very interested in the job and it was even reported in February that she had been chosen, but ultimately MTV settled on filming a one-time ‘Teen Mom’ special about her mother’s cancer battle.
“It’s official,” the source added. “The only way this doesn’t happen is if Cheyenne or Cory backs out, but contracts have likely already been signed so it’s highly unlikely.”
Cheyenne, 25, is a shocking pick because she was never a ‘Teen Mom.’ She had her first daughter at the age of 24, so it will be interesting to see how she fits in on the show. From what we know, she also appears to have good relationship with her daughter’s father Cory. Although sources say the exes do have the occasional drama.
“Their co-parenting relationship is nowhere near as happy as they try to make it out to be on social media,” the source states. “They will fit in perfectly on ‘Teen Mom.’”
