“I had such an amazing time with @projectmermaids,” Jenelle captioned a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot on Instagram. “I’m super thankful to have this opportunity to make my dream come true since I was a little girl, which was being a mermaid!!! I love free diving, scuba diving, and this just topped it all.”

Here’s the clip:

Jenelle then explained a little bit about Project Mermaids and the Save Our Beach project:

This is an organization that helps to clean up all the trash on our beaches! I’m here to bring attention to this issue and ask to spread awareness. We need to teach our younger generation so we can save our earth, keep it healthy, and save our wildlife. ?? #MermaidLife #SaveOurBeach

Jenelle’s husband David Eason seemed to be living out a childhood dream of his own as he could be seen joyfully snapping pictures of Mermaid Jenelle atop a rock. He posted a couple of photos on Instagram and gushed about his little mermaid. “Get you a girl that can do both…” he wrote. “My wife is amazing at everything she does!”

For some reason I thought that the combination of Jenelle and a mermaid costume sounded familiar, so I checked. Sure enough, Jenelle dressed up in a mermaid costume for Halloween a couple years back! (That finless costume featured a pair of mermaid short shorts with scales and a fun pearly beaded bikini top.)

If you are curious about Project Mermaids, the way it works is that you pay for the photo shoot (which was $750 back in March). Half of the money goes to the Save Your Beach Foundation, with the other half going to cover the cost of the tails, the photographer’s time and equipment, and any other expenses. Project Mermaids plans to release a book and have an art show to showcase the wide variety of participants.

Here’s the full scoop from the Project Mermaids Facebook page:

A day by the ocean sounds like part of the ideal life: waking up in the morning, go to the beach; relax to the sound of the waves crashing on the fresh sand. Sounds like a great way to start your day, to spend your vacations, the best place to watch the sunset, create memories. Yet, something has changed during the past years. The mass amount of trash, and the uncontrolled fishing are causing our oceans and beaches to become desolated, covered in trash like open dumps. People day by day are starting to understand that this attitude against our oceans is going to soon turn against us and few organizations are currently donating their time to open the eyes of the world. We consider this a great first step, but we need more. Our passion for the water, the ocean, and the beauty of this different ecosystem, got us together to get more people to see the astonishing beauty that is slowly dying because of our indifference. Our goal is to show how precious our ocean and beaches are, and how well people can function in and around it, photographing models and celebrities in the water, in and around the ocean wearing mermaid tails. The induced fear coming from years of stereotypes is defeated, with the knowledge that is up to everyone of us to keep this beautiful environment healthy and clean.

We are Angelina Venturella and Chiara Salomoni, two photographers that met in Southern California, brought together by the same passion for the ocean, photography and a particular eye for beauty. With our goal in mind we are working with The Mertailor Eric from Florida, which is making the tails for our models, and the result of our donation is going to be addressed to

The photographs will be shown next summer in an art show and in a table book. This is the project we are creating to get the world to see how much more there is beneath the choppy surface of the seas, and how much more there is to work with. The world just needs to see it in order to understand it and take action.

I’m guessin’ the haters gonna hate, but I love the photos! I’m a sucker for a mermaid though, so I’m a bit biased. I just wish Jenelle would have challenged the rest of the Teen Moms to follow suit. Ummm, the #TeenMomaidChallenge maybe? I wanna see all the mother/daughter teams take the challenge and fin up! You KNOW Aubree would LOOOOOOVE it! And of course Farrah and Sophia would do it in a heartbeat. Oooooooo — how awesome would the Leah/Ali/Aleeah/Addy school of mermaids be? Amirite?!

    If they clean up the trash on the beach, why was Jenelle even there?

    • Nedly Mandingo IV

      Yeah I smell low tide.

  • Jenelle Nellz

    I’m disgusted that Starcasm would do an article about this nasty neglectful Bitch!!! Project mermaid is insane for allowing Jenelle to be a part of their work ! Jenelle Evans is POISON! Now they have to shut off their comment section on IG, cause Jenelle’s is so hated ! Jenelle ! Dump that nasty creep David Eason! He’s so gross!!!!!!

    • Renee L

      I agree completely. I get so disgusted by the Starcasm licks Jenelle’s teets any time they can. I feel like I’m reading something a tween would write. “Haters gonna hate”…No. We’re not hating, we’re being realistic. This woman has gotten pregnant with each soul mate just to keep them around. Then smokes weed during pregnancy and worst off, ignores the kid. Those poor children are not taken care of and it’s sad to see. Maybe she should worry less about dressing like fictional care while her creepy boyfriend and his lotion look on and worry more about her kids for a change. This “woman” is awful.

      • A

        The best thing to do in this case is boycott starcasm and ever other media outlets that lick her a$$

      • TA

        It’s creepy Asa, he/she is OBSESSED with all the girls that have been on 16 and Pregnant/Teen Mom. It’s gross.

        • Renee L

          I know! It’s creepy, right? I’ve been coming round here for a few years and the immaturity level is real. And frightening. I have never in my life seen articles where “LOL” is allowed and the following of a conversation is discussed down to the emoji they used. I come here because the articles are usually the truth and Starcasm is quick to report something, but I just can’t handle Asa much anymore..

          • Shanaynay

            Not to mention, her writing, spelling, & grammar is horrible!!

            • Renee L

              YES! No proofreading is necessary apparently. Also, overuse of hybrid words sounds so tween. P.S. I think I mentioned before, love your name. I go by ShaNaeNae on a few boards.

              • Shanaynay

                Thanks. I know, so original, right? Lol I’m just not creative ?

  • Not her again

    Anything for attention. Go protect your babies, you dolt.

  • TA

    Yes. All mermaids have “YOLO” tattoos.

  • bambiglanville

    Let’s continue to write stories about this irrelevant trash of a human.

  • FR

    “I’m here to bring attention” says Jenelle. So she paid $750 to get her little photoshoot and pretend as if she’s doing charity.

    • QT Hush

      Yes these photos are very hohum compared to others for this cause. Jenhell has zero charisma and really isn’t very photogenic so I’m sure the photographers had their work cut out for them. Either that or Kaiser took the pics because we all know how he loves to “touch” the equipment NOT!!

  • Scarlett

    I honestly don’t know why any group/organization would think this skank is a good spokesperson – for anything. Keep in mind she was shown on MTV allowing UBT to strong arm her toddler. Wrong, so wrong.

  • ann

    Oh good god…

  • Kate

    Please swim away forever, Jenelle! It’s probably the only chance your kids have for a good life. PS drugs are not your friend and they do not solve your ‘problems’

  • Kate

    Swim away, Jenelle

  • SweetTeacher

    There’s a beached whale! Help her!

  • Iris

    Well that was a nice thing she did but still doesn’t change what a psychotic mess and trash parent she is. Lmao @ these pics too! ?

  • It is very right to clean the shore, because people have only learned to throw garbage.
