'My Super Sweet 16' Is Returning And You Don't Have To Be A Teenager To Apply

The show that celebrated self-centred rich teenagers throwing outrageously expensive parties is coming back and you're officially invited

The show that brought us the girl who hated her parents for buying her a £53,000 Lexus, the brat who dressed up as a Zebra, Teyana Taylor in a doll box, Rihanna as a date to a pubescent teenage boy and the tween who dyed her poodle dogs pink to match her party's colour scheme, is back.

Cue tears, tantrums, flashy cars, awkward dance numbers mid-party, A-list performances because MTV is reviving its hit reality show, My Super Sweet 16, two years after we bid farewell to its last series.



According to a casting notice, the reboot is open to girls and boys who have ridiculously rich parents but, this time, you don't have to be 16-years-old to apply.

An email sent out by casting company Doron Ofir reads: 'MTV cordially invites you to My Super Sweet... an extraordinary television event featuring the most important day of your life marked by the greatest of celebrations - Sweet Sixteen, Quinceanera, Debutante Ball, Debut, or any other coming of age milestone event – if it's going to be lit, we want to know about it!'



So, whether you're turning 30, celebrating a quarter-life crisis or just fancy showing off how rich your parents are, the chance to be on television's most cringe-inducing-but-amazing programmes is now yours.


For those who haven't had the pure delight of watching the show, think of it as Made In Chelsea and Dynasty on speed with more mansions, diamonds, screaming matches, Mulberry bags and bratty comments like this:


According to Metro, the email reportedly added: 'We want to showcase the most Instagram-enviable celebrations ever seen. Snap the sweetest and most memorable moments of your life that'll make all your Snapchat followers comment #goals when they see just how turnt your party gets!'

You know when a production company uses the word 'turnt', sh*t is going to get real.


The reality series first debut way back in 2005 with the mission to show off spoilt 15-year-old kids as they planned the most important day of their lives – their 16th birthday party.


Forget weddings, the arrival of their first born – if it doesn't have a Gucci-clad teenager complaining their parents only forking out £250,000 on their momentous occasion, it isn't My Super Sweet 16 worthy.

And, seeing as Jennifer Lawrence's first acting gig was the promos for the original TV show, we can't wait to see what's in store for the lead up to the new series.

In the words of Hillary Duff's 'hit' single 'Super Sweet 16': 'Today I'm gonna ride away, and feel the sun throughout my hair, finally free to be who I wanna be, who that is I don't really care.'

Preach, Hills. Preach.
