YouTubers Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau are heading to television! On Wednesday, December 11, the couple announced that they have officially scored their own show with MTV called Bustedness. The show will be a spinoff of the network’s fan-favorite viral video show, Ridiculousness, so there’s no doubt that the couple’s upcoming series is going to be hilarious.
“The Paul’s…coming to a television near you. Never did I think growing up watching Ridiculousness I’d have an opportunity to be on a spinoff where Jake and I get to be bootlegand hahahaha,” Tana captioned a since-deleted Instagram post. “Never did I think I’d bag two MTV shows — one digital and one linear. Thank you for creating this world for me…more to come. See you on TV?”
As fans know, this came just one day after the pair took to their Instagram Stories and revealed that big news was coming soon. Both the 21 and 22-year-old were quick to shut down followers who speculated they might be announcing their divorce.
“We’re not getting divorced. Or married again. I’m not pregnant. Or maybe it’s all three?” the social media star teased on Tuesday, December 10. “We’ve been working on this forever and we’re so excited to share it with the world. We’re excited for it to be everywhere … and nervous. Never would have foreseen 2019 ending this way.”
The internet was first abuzz about Tana and Jake’s possible MTV show back in October when the couple’s close friend Mike Majlak spilled the beans on the project.
“Jake, Tana and I went and tried out for a new MTV show,” he told viewers in a video uploaded on October 23, 2019. “I can’t really talk about it much but, basically, Jake would be the host and Tana and I would be the co-stars.”
From the look of it, their audition went well because the TV show is coming soon!
