The guys and gals of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 have become a pop culture sensation! First there was Lisa Fowler’s Jenelle Evans Halloween costume on the Season 4 finale of True Blood, and then Beavis and Butt-head expressed their admiration for Farrah Abraham’s newly enhanced assets. This time around it’s the guys getting name-dropped as the sardonic waitress Max Black from the CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls expresses her excitement over the possibility of meeting Gary Shirley and reveals she is “hot for” Tyler Baltierra!
Mr. Shirley may not take too kindly to be referred to as “Gary, the fat guy from Teen Mom,” but he needs to remember that she said that in response to Caroline saying, “You’ll never guess who just came into the restaurant! You’ll be very happy!” Plus, I think Gary has all but embraced his heftiness as part of the “It’s Gary Time” fun-loving persona!
As for Tyler, I’m sure her couldn’t be more pleased to find out Max (played by Kat Dennings) thinks of him as “someone she likes, someone she wants to kiss, someone she’s hot for!” But I suppose Tyler’s reaction isn’t the important one here. What does Caitlyn have to say about her man being lusted after on network television?
The Catelynn and Tyler pop culture referencing isn’t just restricted to television though! Check out this photo shared on Twitter by @LisaShann0n featuring a Dunkin’ Donuts display that seems to be a subtle nod to America’s favorite young reality romantics:
Now we just need one of the guys or gals to make an appearance on The Simpsons!
You can check out the full 2 Broke Girls episode with the Teen Mom reference (titled “And The Really Petty Cash”) for a few more weeks over at CBS.com. And you can see new episodes every Monday night at 8:30/7:30c!
