Ranking Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 couples past and present is an arduous task, but one The Hollywood Gossip is more than up for.
If you’re a fan of the MTV franchise, you’ve seen quite a few significant others come and go, while some have been longtime staples.
Some relationships have been terrific, while others were (or are) utter train wrecks. Here, we break them all down from worst to first.
NOTE: Due to his tragic death before Farrah Abraham gave birth to their daughter Sophia, Derek Underwood has been left off this list.
Also notably absent is Andrew Lewis, the father of Jenelle Evans’ son Jace, and a man of whom almost nothing is known to this day.
Everyone else, however, is fair game!
Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers
Even by her standards, Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers were a complete disaster … worse than any couple in franchise history. Multiple arrests, massive drug abuse, one long stint in prison and a pregnancy that ended in an abortion tell you all you need to know.
Jenelle Evans and Kieffer Delp
Jenelle Evans and Kieffer Delp weren’t much better. It’s really amazing that she survived some of these toxic relationships to become as stable as she is today (which is relatively unstable, sure, but much improved). Delp, to his credit, did give us Barbara Evans’ hilarious pronunciation of his name during her frequent rants to Jenelle at least. YA HIGH! I SEE YOU WIFF KIEFFAH!!
Kailyn Lowry and Chris Lopez
Kailyn Lowry and Chris Lopez dated for like a few weeks, and he wouldn’t even show his face on Teen Mom 2, let alone when their third child is born this summer, but they were a couple, and she is having his baby, so … dude’s on this list by default.
Jenelle Evans and Nathan Griffith
Yes, she is in a league of her own with these winners. We’ll get to someone other than Jenelle in a second, we swear.
Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards
Ryan Edwards, for a time, competed for the title of the worst of the worst, the absolute lowest guy on the Teen Mom ladder. He’s still battling drug abuse, if you believe his exes (including Maci Bookout). He has made some strides in the parenting department, and is engaged to what seems like a nice girl in Mackenzie Standifer, but Maci and Ryan were not a good match and have feuded for years. Years.
Chelsea Houska and Adam Lind
Chelsea Houska and Adam Lind were about as bizarre a couple as you could conjure up, given her long list of redeeming qualities and the fact that she once dated Adam Lind. Fortunately, she got it right the second time around (needless to say, she and her husband are much higher on this list) and the Housk has done the bulk of the parenting of their daughter Aubree.
