If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you know that the wildly popular reality series occasionally feels a bit overstuffed in its current season.
The show has a new cast member in Briana DeJesus, and the other moms lives are as drama-packed than ever.
So perhaps it’s not surprising that ancillary figures like Kailyn Lowry’s ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, are looking to move on to new projects.
After all, these days, Kailyn is soon to welcome her third child, and her increasingly hectic life may well result in less screen time for Javi.
So in an effort to maintain relevance, Marroquin is making moves, y’all.
According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, MTV is considering doing an all-star edition of The Challenge for the show’s 31st (!!!) season.
Our older readers might remember the show with its original, ludicrously clumsy title, Real World/Road Rules The Challenge.
In those days, The Challenge featured fan favorites from the network’s first two reality shows competing in various, um … challenges.
More recent seasons have followed the network’s protocol of filling every series with generic pretty people, but now, it looks as though MTV execs are looking to return to pitting stars from other shows against one another.
It makes sense that Javi would be among the first to get the call, as he’s mentioned his desire to compete on the show in numerous social media posts.
Nothing has been confirmed thus far, but since The Challenge films for seven weeks beginning in September, so the schedule likely wouldn’t interfere with Marroquin’s TM2 duties.
It wouldn’t be the first time that producers poached talent from another series, as the show addded castmembers from MTV’s Are You the One in 2014.
They probably won’t have to do much convincing to get Javi to sign on, as we already know he’s a fan of MTV’s full slate of programming.
Javi often tweets about other shows, and he briefly dated Madison Channing Walls of The Real World fame.
There’s no word on how Kailyn feels about her ex’s new opportunity.
But given how much her relationship with Javi has deteriorated in recent months, we’re guessing she wouldn’t mind if he takes off for a couple months.
