Before Nev and Max restart their travels, MTV will air a "Hooked on Catfish: The Road to Season Two" special on Monday, June 17, at 11/10c, which will serve as a bridge between where we last left the Internet-detectives and where they're at now. The half-hour show will give you an exclusive look at the tales to come, too, including that of Cassie and Steve, who are ENGAGED but have never met, and the tale of an Iraq vet and his mystery love. BREAK OUT THE TACKLEBOX and get ready to swallow this thing hook, line and sinker.
+ Excited for the new season? Be sure to tune in to a Season 1 marathon starting Sunday, June 23, at 9a/8c, and remind us which episode left you cringing the most in the comments! Plus, check out a special message from Nev and Max below!
The town of West Egg has just found its modern-day party-throwing prince. DJ Pauly D, whose identity is deeply rooted in his signature blowout, whipped out some pomade yesterday and flattened down his hair-crown in an attempt to match the class of "The Great Gatsby." If we may be so bold: It's a job well done, old sport! We bet Daisy Buchanan's clutching her pearls at the very thought of a more dapper Pauly D. Hell, the "Jersey Shore" export might even be better suited to the role than Leonardo DiCaprio!
"#TheGreatDJGatsby!!!" Pauly D tweeted with the photo next to Leo above, in which he's dressed to the nines and giving a thumbs-up salute. Can't you see the resemblance? CAN'T YOU??? At the very least, PD would have made a great right-hand man, providing the fist-pumpin' tunes at the playboy's many lavish parties...if Jay-Z wasn't available, of course.
+ Check out the gentlemen's side-by-side pics, and tell us how you think Pauly compares to Leo!

The one constant in the roller coaster that is "Nitro Circus Live" is that there is no constant. As we've witnessed all season long, accidents occur on the tour almost as much as goofing off does, but what we don't typically see is the backstage madness that takes place as a result...until now.
In this sneak peek of the next episode, the producers scramble to piece the show back together after Josh Sheehan's game-changing injury shakes things up. When Josh crashes at the top of the show, the crew quickly realizes that he's too hurt to return for his grand finale, which poses a huuuuge rescheduling issue. "To work around that is a real challenge, but you have to do it," producer Jeremy Rawle explains. However, with Josh officially out of commission, the team decides to call upon James Foster to step up to the plate and end the show with his triple flip instead. "The pressure's on us, but I know James can pull it off," manager Cam Coughlan says. The show must go on!
Think Foster will pull through? Find out tonight on "Nitro Circus Live" at 11/10c on MTV2!
After a year of racking up frequent flyer miles, Andrew Jenks has officially signed off of the second season of "World Of Jenks," leaving behind three completely changed people. In the Jenks-sized slices of their lives, we saw Kaylin, D-Real and Chad face their demons, exercise their potential and wind up far from where they started. But since cameras won't be around for their next chapters, we're curious which story impacted you the most.
When fan-favorite Chad returned for Season 2, he was struggling with the idea of moving on with his life. The comforts of home -- like sleeping on his parents' bedroom floor -- were slowly starting to disappear for the autistic 21-year-old, and his first relationship tested his capacity for compromise. Slowly, Chad learned ways to manage some of his anxiety, and not only graduated, but earned a job at a nearby pizzeria, where he quickly became a customer-favorite and proud protégé of the owner, Al. The biggest test for Chad, though, was trying to cope with moving away from his childhood home -- for good -- but rather than let the transition get the best of him, he ultimately decided it was for the best, and acclimated to his new neighborhood.
Carly Aquilino and Chris Distefano show us what true love looks like!
The philosophies posed by "Guy Code" and "Girl Code" are worlds apart, but in the middle of the dissent is a perfectly lewd, crude and downright charming union between comedians Chris Distefano and Carly Aquilino: experts on sluts, proper deuce-dropping etiquette and, evidently, dating. Carly confirmed to her Twitter following recently that she and her fellow talking head have been together for about a year, and suddenly, upon closer inspection, their collective social media timelines read like a romance novel (but, you know, one in which armpit sniffing is more rampant than flowery declarations of love).
Lately, Chris and Carly's couply routine has been especially noticeable, culminating in a recent trip to California via first class (in which they fully admit they DO NOT belong). And between pulling wedgies in public and chronicling their fast food visits, it's easy to see that they always stray away from any "Code" violations, like posting a bajillion smooching selfies. These two may just have the secrets to a perfect relationship all figured out.
Check out some of their adorable photo updates, and watch the MTV.com clip below in which they explain the ins and outs of texting, farting and cash-flow as a committed couple. Listen up, you could learn a thing or two!
Kailyn Lowry poses with two friends -- plus one baby bump -- at her shower over the weekend.
Congratulations are in order: Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin of "Teen Mom 2" are expecting their first child together! While rumors about Kail's bun in the oven have been swirling around for some time, the happy couple took to the web over the weekend to confirm the gossip, and shared a slew of photos from Kailyn's baby shower in which the young mother wore a delicate flower crown, flowing pink dress and new brunette 'do (guess she decided against chopping off her long locks).
Kail's hubby returned home last week for a 10-day leave from his military job, and she definitely seems to be seizing the moment. People: This is what cloud 9 looks like!
+ Check out the rest of the pics, and leave your congratulations for Javi, Kail and Isaac in the comments!
Listen up, extreme sports fans! The "Nitro Circus Live" season finale is just one week away -- boo!

The legendary stuntman will be fielding questions throughout the stream, and, if we're lucky, he'll dish some juicy behind-the-scenes gossip (we must know: Is Cam McCaul as crazy as he appears?). Plus, if you've ever wanted to see the boys (and "Nitro" girl) up close and personal, Trav will be providing details on the 2014 "Nitro Circus Live" North American tour, including a special code for pre-sale tickets. Warm up your typing fingers, because this is one Internet party you will not want to miss!

Sometimes, Hollywood likes to shake up the classic villain persona by giving bad guys a tiny ounce of compassion for the innocent, but you're not going to find any of that from Beacon Hills' newest arrivals. Season 3 of "Teen Wolf" is just two weeks from its premiere date, and in the trailer below, it's clear that when the Alpha Pack finally strikes, they won't be showing any mercy. Is it too early to label this season's motif as "bloodbath"?
Scott McCall -- who's now a close personal friend to tragedy -- is completely helpless against the Alpha Pack, and his effort to stop evil from taking over seems to only strengthen the pack's resolve. And it's not just fellow half-beasts Derek and Isaac the Alphas are after: It looks as if Mrs. McCall might even be caught in the crossfire (and potentially become a victim of it, too). "Every time I try to fight back it just gets worse," Scott says, as he watches his world cave in around him. Could these ferocious out-of-towners finally be the end of the Beacon Hills hero?
+ Check out the trailer for all the nail-biting action, tell us what you think of it and tune in to the "Teen Wolf" Season 3 premiere Monday, June 3 at 10/9c!
As a talent manager, Joe Simpson helped launch his daughters, Ashlee and Jessica, into musical superstardom -- not to mention, both ladies had their own shows on MTV! But now that they've both grown up, Joe's looking to cultivate some new, young talent in the form of a bad-ass girl group, and in this trailer for MTV's new six-episode series, "The Alectrix," Joe and group founder Heather Naylor band together to narrow down a pool of hopefuls into a fierce fivesome. Watch out, The Saturdays, we think you've got competition!
After pouring every ounce of herself -- and her money -- into making her dreams a reality, Heather (formerly of "The Electric Barbarellas") is risking it all for a chance to create the next musical sensation. However, from auditions to song writing to major attitude clashes (oh, and a pregnancy!), it looks like the road to stardom will be a bumpy one.
Will the group's members have what it takes to leave all the drama behind and make it big? Check out the trailer, and don't miss the series premiere of "The Alectrix" June 4 at 11/10c on MTV!
Every Friday we thumb through your comments from the most talked-about post of the week and highlight each side of the argument. Check out the latest That's What You Said below and make sure to share your own opinion!
It's a tale we've told a thousand times on Remote Control, but when Chelsea admitted on the "Teen Mom 2" Finale Special that she and Adam -- who'd been seeing another girl -- had been hooking up again, it genuinely caught us off guard. And as the two argued about their complicated relationship (for the umpteenth time), fans of the show couldn't get online fast enough to chime in.
Collected below are some of the most intriguing comments posted to Remote Control and Facebook, and they run the gamut -- from supportive to critical, you all had something to say about Chelsea's choice to start things back up with her ex-flame. Check 'em out, and tell us where you stand on the new chapter in this on-again, off-again saga.
"Chelsea is a good mother, I think she just needs to be open to finding someone that wants more than sex. I want to see her find a guy that knows how important family is and one that gets along with her dad." -- Brandy
"I was completely dumbfounded when Dr. Drew talked to Chelsea about the time she thought she might have been pregnant with Adam's child at the beginning of the season. Dr. Drew asked why she didn't get Plan B, and Chelsea said it's because she didn't know for sure she was pregnant. That's WHY you get Plan B!" -- whatyouwant
