Cast announced for new reality series Teen Mom Australia
MTV has announced the three teenage mothers that will be featured in new reality series, Teen Mom Australia.
Melbourne’s Ammersen Chambers, Western Sydney’s Akosita Masima and the Sutherland Shire’s Georgina Manios were selected from more than a thousand applicants to have their stories documented in the ten-episode Australian version of the ground-breaking series premiering later this year.
Teen Mom Australia will explore the lives of the three mothers as they try to find the right balance between childcare, relationships and teenage life.
Over the course of the series, Ammersen, Akosita and Gerogina will share their stories as they manage a life filled with nappies, tears and tantrums combined with the everyday drama and complexities of simply being a teenager.
MEET YOUR TEEN MOMS:
Georgina (Georgie) (20) is our make-up loving single mum who switches her time between working as a qualified beautician and changing nappies.
Georgie has had an-on-and-off again relationship with Evie’s father John for the last five years and is constantly conflicted about her feelings for him.
They both tell different sides to the story and it always was ends in an argument but Georgie is willing to give it once last chance for them to be a family.
Akosita (Sita) (19) is our rugby playing, soul singing vivacious teen mom.
She lives in a full house with her partner Thomson and her self-described ‘big fat Tongan Family’ of ten including four sisters and three brothers, her parents, her grandfather, her baby Andrew and the children of her siblings.
Sita plans to get back on the Rugby field as soon as possible, as well as take her singing career to the next level as everything came to a screeching halt once she found out she was having a baby.
Ammersen (Ammi) (18) is our youngest teen mom, but don’t let her age fool you, as she is as fiery and brutally honest as they come.
Having Jiyah turned Ammi and her childhood sweetheart Jordan’s life upside down but in the best possible way and now with baby number two on the way their little family is ready for their next adventure.
Living with Ammi’s older sister Katya presents some challenges, as despite their closeness, there are constant disagreements about household chores, parenting and family dynamics.
