Something tells me Jenelle Evans wasn’t too happy about this! According to next week’s TV listings, MTV will be airing an hour-long Teen Mom 2 “Being Nathan” special documenting his life after he split from Jenelle.
Here’s the description of the episode:
After multiple arrests and bad break-ups, Nathan moves back in with his mom to pursue a career in bodybuilding, while attempting to date again. But a pending court case with possible jail time puts Nathan’s goals in jeopardy.
A “career in bodybuilding” seems to be a consistent theme among Teen Mom 2 exes as Nathan follows in the swole footsteps of Chelsea Houska’s ex Adam Lind. I’m guessing the percentage of male bodybuilders out there actually making a living at it are INCREDIBLY small?
SPOILER ALERT: Nathan hasn’t seemed to fare too well with his new career. He entered the 2017 NPC Palmetto Classic in April and finished seventh out of eight contestants in his class. Nathan took to Facebook to express his disappointment:
So… even though I didn’t do as good as I Intended to do at the competition, I still did my best and I have no shame about it at all. I’m shocked by my placing and I could add so many excuses which I won’t (because it’s over with). But hey it’ll give me motivation and inspire me to try harder next competition.
And here’s a video of Nathan working the stage:
Nathan isn’t putting all of his eggs in the competition (and eventual endorsement deals, etc.) basket, however. He is offering up his physical training wisdom and lifestyle coaching skills to potential clients wanting to “reach a healthier and more positive lifestyle” like his:
I’ve always had a passion to help motivate people to reach a healthier and more positive lifestyle. To be confident with their body and mind. Along with several others events that occurred, I stopped training and coaching individuals besides family/friends that wanted help. I have felt selfish for not investing my time in my neighbors who wanted help. Ppl have promoted my methods and sent ppl to me for advice. I always acted eager but then as soon as I didn’t hear from them, I never cared to follow up. *sh!tty I know… As of July 19, 2017 I will be extending my hand to help anyone that is !!SERIOUS!! about wanting to be better mentally and physically. Individuals will have full access to my routine, be offered specialized workouts/routines and specialized individual diet plans. I hate generic workouts and diets and will do a proper interview and history check to maximum your own results. Also, there will be rules and check ins. You don’t follow the rules and miss a certain amount of check ins, I’m dropping you. I take this serious because I believe it’s a lifestyle not a hobby and you should to, if you want results.
Hmmm… So perhaps “Being Nathan” isn’t just an MTV Teen Mom 2 special, but an aspiration for all of us! A way of life!
Meanwhile, Nathan seems to be doing pretty well non-professionally — except for the whole Kaiser custody thing with Jenelle. He and new girlfriend Ashley Lanhardt appear to be getting along swimmingly. Here are some lovey-dovey posts from Nathan over the last couple of months swooning over Ashley:
Never have I ever felt so content and happy in life! I have a beautiful successful woman that treats me like a king and I have a beautiful intelligent baby girl that idealizes everything her dad does. I am so bless to have both these angels in my life! They truly make my life feel blessed. I love you guys and thanks for an amazing week you have given DADDY!
Every day I spend with you, is another day I realize how close we are getting. You accept me for who I am and challenge me to be better than I think I can be. I never thought I could be loved by so many special people in my life and feel so supported by the same individuals that love me. I love you Ashley Lanhardt and thanks for all the joy and happiness that you have brought me and my family, especially my children! Even when it comes to raising this beautiful little bundle of craziness, I see how great of a team we will make when the time comes. I love our little crazy, silly family!
I’m hoping we will get a chance to know Ashley a little better when the “Being Nathan” special airs Monday, September 18 at 10/9c on MTV.
