Briana DeJesus is a ‘Teen Mom’ newcomer but that doesn’t make her less important. The veteran crew of ‘Teen Mom 2’ welcomed Briana with open hands and it’s likely to pay off in the future.
10 Things you didn’t know about Briana’s life
1) She was a ‘Teen Mom’ star before joining ‘TM2’
Briana was previously featured on MTV’s ‘Teen Mom 3’ but the show has since been dissolved.
It’s not an uncommon practice to dissolve shows within the industry as the market tends to demand something different.
Briana’s previous gig lasted only for 1 season and wasn’t quite successful in terms of viewership.
That’s not to belittle what the girls have done for the franchise, including Mackenzie, Briana, Alex, and Katie.
Fortunately, MTV decided to merge some of the ‘TM3’ cast members into their more successful shows, primarily Briana DeJesus and Mackenzie McKee.
The two have been merged into ‘Teen Mom 2’ and ‘Teen Mom: OG’, respectively.
2) She has a job
Briana isn’t completely dependant on her MTV gig as she’s employed in real life.
DeJesus decided to address the rumors that she’s unemployed and kicked it off on social media.
“…hate when people tell me to get a real job. I have one!” she revealed.
Going into detail, Briana noted that she works within the timeshare industry.
“I work in timeshare,” she revealed on social media.
3) She’s being paid to appear on ‘Teen Mom 2’
Well, duh! All the ‘Teen Mom’ stars receive their fair share of the ‘cake’ and are being compensated.
But how much exactly are we talking about?
Although the exact salary details aren’t revealed to the public, it’s reasonable to assume that Briana is being paid on a per-episode basis.
