Teen Mom 2 Ratings Plummet: Can Jenelle Evans Save the Show?

by at .

Jenelle Evans has told followers that she's ending her very effed up marriage to David Eason.

But while fans think through the consequences of this decision and even give Evans props for finally arriving at it, they must also now deal with a brand new rumor:

Jenelle Evans may be embarking on a brand new beginning with Teen Mom 2.

According to a new report, the once unthinkable notion of re-hiring Evans is at least being thought about by MTV executives, as they deal with a major drop in the show's ratings and interest.

Just how bad has it gotten? And could this actually come to fruition?

Scroll down for some facts and some speculation...

She's Outta There!
It took a very long time, but MTV finally came to its sense in May 2019 when it fired Evans from Teen Mom 2, doing so after the troubled star's husband, David Eason, shot and murdered their family dog. This actually happened.

Said the network in a statement this past spring, referencing how it had ended its affiliation with Eason over his many instances of homophobia: “MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since. Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season."

“David has been here for me since the news broke, he told me to not worry about it and to stay positive,” she added in May. “I’m keeping busy and staying focused on my kids and my animals and my business endeavors which have been planned for months. I’m working to fix my marriage as well and moving forward.”

Jade Cline. She debuted in September 2019 by arguing a lot with her baby daddy, which would make it seem like she's fitting in very well, right?
