MTV was (is?) in Mankato ... but where are they now?

So, my Facebook pal Diane Winegar is the co-owner of Sweet Peas on Riverfront. It's a store for baby goods. She said an MTV crew came in today (Friday) with a girl for their show "16 and Pregnant." It's a reality show about teens who are pregnant and how their lives are changing as a result. Each episode features a new teen. I'm wondering if this means the girl lives in Mankato and has a TV crew following her pretty much 24/7 right now. I'd love to get to the bottom of this for a story. If anyone has the skinny, shoot me an e-mail at Thanks!


  1. There was a camera crew at Bray Park in Madisson Lake last Thursday afternoon. I wonder if there is a connection?...

  2. I was talking to a friend and he said his neighbor is a teacher that teaches kids who can't go to traditional schools. So, this teacher tutors the pregnant girl and the camera crews will come and video them. I guess she has to bring 3 outfits to a tuturing session so that on TV it looks like a couple days worth.
