Other than collecting MTV's checks, of course
MTV has made a mint off of their shows 16 & Pregnant, Teen Mom OG, and Teen Mom 2, and they reward the moms of the show accordingly. Though some of the girls choose to have regular jobs or have gotten an education, they make enough money filming the show a few months out of the year to not need other income.
The men featured on the shows also receive some big checks for their cooperation, but they probably aren’t pulling down what the ladies are, so they need to have some extra cash to get by.
Cutie Cole is now a husband and a father to a newborn baby boy. Cole has had a more stable life than the other guys we’ve seen on the show, and he works as a Traffic Control Specialist in South Dakota.
Chelsea’s ex Adam was not always this pumped. When we first met him he was quite thin and lanky. But his intense weight training got him a gig as a sponsored weightlifter/personal trainer.
Matt is the oldest person in this bunch, so you know he’s had a lot of different jobs. Most recently, he’s tried his hand at flipping houses alongside Amber, though their two lawsuits about damage done to the houses they’ve rented doesn’t look promising.
