‘Unexpected’ Season 3: Fans Not Thrilled With McKayla Back On The Show, Behaving Badly

Unexpected McKayla

Unexpected Season 3 premiered on August 4 on TLC. While the show brings in new couples, McKayla, 18 and Caelan, 20 return. It appears that many fans of the show are simply not thrilled with McKayla’s return. Especially as she already had a baby and now expects another one. In this season, we see the start of a relationship that’s going downhill. And some fans think McKayla’s way too immature.

Unexpected mom McKayla’s back and pregnant for the second time

Fans of the TLC show can’t get over how McKayla resents Caelan who works hard to provide for his family. Plus, it boggles the mind that after the first unexpected pregnancy, she now blithely gets pregnant again as if she’s never heard of birth control. Her first baby, Timothy’s now two-years-old, but there’s a huge distance between Caelan and McKayla this time around. It seems incredible that McKayla and her grandparents can’t seem to appreciate that her baby daddy works hard and got a home for her and the kids.

However, we see the Unexpected OG run off to her grandparent’s place. Fair enough it’s probably hard for them raising another brood of kids for a second time. However, they enable McKayla’s attitude that Caelan’s not spending enough time with McKayla. They too seem to think it better if Caelan stopped work, became a dependent himself, and helped take Timothy off her hands now and then. In fact, many fans get angry and irritated that all McKayla seems to do is make her videos while everyone else runs around looking after her needs. And now she wants Caelan to do the same thing?

Caelan and McKayla’s relationship on the down, fans unsurprised

As the episodes roll by we see that Caelan’s kind of off McKayla in a big way. She complains he won’t go to the doctors with her for her checkup. Meanwhile, we know from the synopsis of the show that Caelan’s pretty down on the whole thing. In fact, he believes that she’s determined to keep the kids away from him. We can expect to see much of this “custody” issue rear up in the season.

It looks like much sympathy goes to Caelan in this season of Unexpected. As YouTuber user, Surfergrl72Roxy I, said, “I actually feel bad for Caelyn, he look s like he’s actually trying. He seems like he’s really grown-up since last season and there’s just no way to get through to McKayla. It’s what she wants on her terms and her terms only. At least he’s actually working to support his family and nothing makes her happy. The last thing they needed was another child.”

Fans express why they are not thrilled with the return of McKayla

Over on Twitter, many fans of the show feel frustrated with watching McKayla who acts so entitled all the time. Here’s what some of them said about her reappearance on Unexpected:

  • @hdyan83095981: “From Caelan, that rat b*stard, because all he does is work all day to provide for his family and she HATED CAELAN AND THIS TIME FOREVER and then Whoops! Another baby…Poor, overwhelmed McKayla..so manipulative. Ugh.”
  • @erinelizabitch: “Caelan was dead-eyed last season, but this season it looks like McKayla’s dramatic, unappreciative *ss has sucked every last bit of life from his soul.”
  • @DawnCop86537076:  “#unexpected McKayla is playing the victim to her grandparents. They need to tell her to grow up and go home to her boyfriend. He works all day to provide a home for his family. Plus, she should be helping taking care of their dogs when he’s at work.”
  • @Sweetsie_McGee: “Hey McKayla a man that spends his time working making MONEY for his family so you can have your own home IS doing his part. I know we don’t see everything but just ONCE I wanna hear you say something positive about Caelen. Have you seen the other Dads?”
