The ‘Teen Mom’ franchise started way back in 2009, and some of the cast still remains to this day.
How did MTV cast the girls?
Back in 2009, MTV was looking for convenient ways to cast girls with interesting stories to tell. Instead of going to the usual agency routine, they did something different.
Apparently, MTV used craigslist for their casting call and it turned out great for them.
Maci Bookout and Catelynn Lowell were cast exactly this way.
