For Teen Mom fans, Maci Bookout’s stint on Naked and Afraid is a dream reality television crossover. But if seeing her on the survival show is the first time you’ve come across her, you’re going to need a little background. Starting from the beginning, what season of Teen Mom is Maci Bookout on and how long ago was it?
Bookout is an MTV OG. She was first cast on 16 and Pregnant back in 2009, which was the show’s first season. Later that year she was appeared on the spinoff show, Teen Mom and appeared in every single one of its four seasons until the show ended. When MTV rebooted the franchise in 2015, Bookout was cast once again, along with fellow former Teen Mom stars Catelynn Baltierra, Amber Portwood, and Farrah Abraham. And Bookout has been consistently appearing on the show ever since. Now 26 years old, Bookout has three kids: 9-year-old Bentley with her ex, Ryan Edwards, and then 3-year-old Jayde and 2-year-old Maverick with her husband, Taylor McKinney.
Bookout has really been through it all on the show, going through some of the most important events of her life in front of a national audience. She gave birth to Bentley on 16 and Pregnant, broke up with Edwards, dated her friend Kyle King for two seasons of Teen Mom, eventually found McKinney, and had two more kids. This season, she revealed that she had a miscarriage last year and is even considering adopting. Nearly 10 years since her MTV debut, Bookout has branched out into several projects — including braving the wilderness in the nude.
