It appears that we have half of the cast of the upcoming third installment of MTV’s Teen Mom franchise! An MTV source has confirmed with Radar Online that Alexandria Sekella and Mackenzie Douthit will be two of the girls featured on Teen Mom 3.

UPDATE – We can now add Katie Yeager to the tentative list of Teen Mom 3 cast members! CLICK HERE to read all about that!

The report jibes with our initial “educated” speculation that pegged Either Mackenzie or Katie Yeager with Alex and Katrina Robinson (Head) as three of the four cast members. Then, earlier this week, we shared photos from Mackenzie Douthit’s prom that appeared to have an MTV camera woman in the background.

We said in that post that we thought Mackenzie made a great choice because she seemed like a very straight-laced girl with an amazing support group behind her, including a very loving family as well as Gannon’s father Josh McKee, who is still in the picture. Over the last couple years the Teen Mom franchise has become associated with troublemakers and a lot of bad headlines thanks in large part to Amber Portwood from the original series and Jenelle Evans from Teen Mom 2. The MTV source backs that up.

“She comes from a stable family and seems to have her life in order,” the source says. “MTV wanted someone like that.”

Alex is kind of the opposite in that her personal life is a little on the unstable side, thanks mostly to her drug using baby daddy Matt McCann. Oh, and Alex is not afraid to raise her voice and get in someone’s face either! She promises to make for some very dramatic reality TV, but thankfully she doesn’t appear to have a self-destructive streak so hopefully she will avoid a lot of the pitfalls of Amber and Jenelle.

So what do you think about the choices? Are you excited to follow the lives of Alex, Arabella, Mackenzie, and Gannon over the next few years?

  • Melissa

    Hopefully they’ll put Briana or the black girl. Teen Mom needs some diversity!!

    • Jamie Brown

      Briana would be a great addition. She has excellent family support, sets a great example on the importance of getting an eduCation which her Mom fully supports, and she has some very intelligent viewpoints. I’d like to see more of her.

    • Jess

      I believe Alex is half Hispanic, and Farrah I know is half middle easterner, so there is a little diversed

  • Sparkle

    I like both of them. I hope Briana is on Teen Mom also.

  • amanda

    Am I the only one sick of this show? It was great maybe four seasons ago, but now it is just the same thing. They get pregnant, get on tv and get money. We should put our focus on young women who are doing positive things with their lives, and not getting pregnant. I strongly believe it is the job of the parent to teach their children about sex and contraception and not MTV.

    • Ugh.

      I agree! Where are the shows like: 16 and starting college!

  • b

    I hope the girl from this week is on Teen Mom. Myranda, I think was her name. Her show wasn’t that entertaining, I just felt sorry for her.


    I just hope they x Maci, Catelyn and Farrah. They are boring as hell.

    • M.D.

      They are. I’m pretty sure the next season of the original Teen Mom is the last one.

      • nicole

        there going to be showing leahs 2nd wedding this season i know that so she will be back on

  • ER

    Alex was my least fav, so I won’t be tuning in. TM 1 was the only cast I liked, and that was because of Farrah and Catelynn.

  • nicole

    i hope they bring back maci, leah and jenelle there the best ones to watch i love you guys.

  • I love Mackenzie, she seemed like a total sweetheart! And Starcasm, her name is KRISTINA NOT katrina, this is not the first article you have done this on.

  • Forrest

    I like Alex and Mackenzie seems like a sweet girl but doesn’t seem that interesting to me.
    I only liked Teen Mom 2, actually.
    Don’t think I’ll be tuning in, this show is kinda starting to bore me.

  • Martina

    I agree with Melissa, Briana wpuld be a great choice for TM3, her story would be entertaining. Alex, ugh she lost my respect after the carseat issue.

    • M.D.

      I agree with you about Alex. I’m a little disappointed that she will be one TM3.

  • Ugh.

    Alex? Blah. I couldn’t stand her episode. Luckily I watch it online and can fast forward through her parts.

  • Courtneyyyy.

    Kristina & Mckenzie. (: they both have very original stories and I’ for you wanna see Kristina & her new fiancé on this show. Shes so strong. While I do love Mckenzie I’m actually disappointed in the fact they’re continuing her story, I’m a cheerleader & ive spent almost my whole life trying to get away from the stereotype that cheer= teen pregnancy. But she’s amazing & her & josh are ment to be together. Alex though…. She’s not my favorite but y’all honestly cannot judge her. My sister got pregnant & her bf was a druggie. It was so hard for her. You guys have no clue what kinda stress she was under. That’s prolly why she’s even on the show. Shes trying, I’ll give her that. Don’t say you lost respect for her cuz y’all have no idea how hard it is to mpbe a teen mom
