The Drama Officially Begins On 'Awkward's' Final Season

9/1/2015 1:51am EDT
'Awkward' 501 Recap: Matty is Betrayed
The first episode of “Awkward’s” final season is here at last. And boy did things really hang out. No, literally, five minutes into the episode the whole senior class is buck naked in a janitor closet. Because it’s senior streak day, Matty’s lame ass version of a prank. As if it’s not just a desperate attempt to see Jenna naked again. Not that J-dawg was turning a blind eye to his pecs. Yet, they didn’t hold her interest long when new bae Brian—the Marine she hooked up with on Spring Break—is sending hot pics. Jenna happily shares them with the still engaged Tamara, who believes a face to f...

Brett Davern Talks Toyota Grand Prix

Brett Davern On His Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pro/Celebrit
One of the major storylines in next month's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pro/Celebrity Race is whether or not Brett Davern will be able to repeat as overall race winner. Considering that he's never finished lower than second place, we would not be betting against him.

We sat down with Brett at the recent practice session to discuss what he thinks his chances are, his already memorable history with the Pro/Celebrity Race, and the big milestone coming up in season five of MTV's Awkward, in which he stars as Jake Rosati.

Brett might be a celebrity, but in the three years he's been part of...

Awkward
Heeeyyyy party people, spring break’s here!! Grab the cooler, your two-piece beach suit and join the Palos Hills crew for “Awkward’s” penultimate episode “Sprang Break, Pt. 1” before the season finale. Here are six things you need to know before watching the upcoming season finale.

1. Jenna’s College Bound

J-Dawg has finally, finally landed in a four-year U that is all too happy to have her, or at the very least accepted her. Yayyy, Jenna. But take note, kiddies don’t be too eager to celebrate. Especially if you’re being stopped by the Mexican police for speeding (looking at you, Lacey). ...

‘Awkward’ Recap ‘Over the Hump’

11/12/2014 8:37am EST
Awkward
What’s that old saying about sticking to the old, tried and true and rejecting someone/something new? Thinking…thinking…Got it! “Familiarity breeds contempt.” It’s “Awkward” overarching theme in “Over the Hump.”

The ep opens with down-on-her-luck Jenna ruminating over the cold hard fact she has yet to get a big envelope from a college and it’s nearing spring break. Lacey has the perfect pick-me-up: Ally rented a beach house in Mexico for spring break in honor of Sadie getting into Columbia University.

Jenna says she’d rather wallow in her self-pity than attend a Sadie-based party. Lacey t...

Awkward
As if being rejected from yet another college wasn’t shocking enough for Jenna, this time Lacey has a hand in making it even worse. “Awkward’s” 18th ep “Girl Rule” highlights the girls on fire with promise and those feeling the burn. Below are five jaw-dropping moments from “Awkward’s” most recent episode.

1.Girl Fight- Lissa’s suspension left the gate wide open for a sub cheer captain. Cue Sadie electing herself head of the cheer-tocracy, which gets dismissed by Tamara. The “Bring it On” faceoff escalates to flailing fists rolling around the gym floor. Sadie and Tamara’s scuffle land them...

'Awkward' Season 4, Episode 17 Recap: 'The New Sex Deal'
“What Would F.D.R. Do?” No doubt a question that swirled around Ken Burns thinking cap, but it’s also one Jenna posed in “Awkward” newest ep “The New Sex Deal,” where she’s facing a great big romantic depression she set in motion.

See, when she pulled the plug on the dude database it sent the hook up projections in Palos Hills High plummeting throughout the school. And the timing couldn’t be any worse, with Valentine’s Day creeping up on the feuding student body.

Jenna gets hit with anything but the love—what’s more festive than a “hurt locker full of blue balls” to honor her villainy on ...

‘Awkward’ Season 4 Episode 16 Recap ‘Hashtag Drama’

10/22/2014 10:35am EDT
Awkward
The sh*t has officially hit the fan. The dude database is hijacking Jenna and Tamara’s newsfeeds and turning Palos Hills High into a teen fight club. In “Awkward’s” “Hashtag Drama” ep, Jenna and Tamara get swept up in the fracas when Owen is rated #secrethottiewithabody. Thinking Jenna tagged him, he gives her a cheek kiss as gratitude. Problem is Tamara is the one that penned those kind words and for good reason. She hooked up with him. Did anyone else have this pop song in their head during the BFF’s dispute? Jenna’s attempts to apologize to Tamara only backfire when *NEWSFLASH*she makes ...

5 Ways ‘Awkward’ Jenna Is Like Matty
I know what you’re thinking: 'Awkward's' Jenna and Matty couldn’t be any more different. You’d be right, but only when it comes to their rollercoaster of a relationship. A part (which is, sadly quite often this season) they’re more likely to rub off on each other. Jenna is certainly picking up on Matty’s dysfunctional relationship tips, and I highlight five of them below.

1. Secret Lovers- It’s almost like history repeating itself when junior cougar Jenna spurred a secret rendezvous relationship with sophomore Owen. Not unlike the one Matty initiated on Jenna seasons ago, and had her make ...

The Palos Hills jocks have transformed the slam book into the phonebook in “Bonfire Vanities.” Taking a cue from Ludacris, the jocks rate their hookups and area code the girls in…you guessed it, an actual phonebook. Tamara and Jenna fight fire with fire. Hehehe… get it? Because this “Awkward” ep is about the senior bonfire…okay, and our Sadie ship Sergio pleas have finally been answered. Below are the five most epic moments of “Bonfire Vanities.”

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 14 Recap Welcome To Hell, Rejection And Acceptance

10/8/2014 11:13am EDT
Awkward
I have a greater appreciation for my generation where college rejection letters were literally a hard copy letter wrapped around a thin envelope of terror. And mailed to your home where you have the luxury, at the very least, to wallow in being cast off in solitude. Unfortunately Jenna’s plugged-in gen warrants a more fast-paced approach to getting that fateful response.

And how horrifying is it when our fav self-conscious gal doesn’t get the reaction she expects in a crowded classroom of college acceptees, including bestie Tamara? Epically disappointing enough to keep the truth on the D.L...

Awkward
“Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?”

If it’s inching closer to midnight on New Year’s Eve without a male or female pucker in sight. Ab-so-lu-te-ly!! But Jenna would instruct us to do as she says and not as she does. And what she did was smooch a sophomore on the night’s most ChapStick worthy night. So, hold the phone, is Jenna a jr. cougar? Sound off in the comments below.

Let’s rewind to 3 or 4 hours before the midnight kissing madness began. While Lacey borrowed a sparkling number from Taylor Swift’s closet to wear to Ally’s New Year’s party, Jenna primed her ...

‘Awkward’ Midseason Premiere Recap: Finals

9/24/2014 10:07am EDT
Awkward
It’s now or never, people. Or at least that’s what MTV’s “Awkward” keeps hinting at, which begs the question: Are the Jatty love trials coming to an end? Let’s cross our fingers and hope it’s not true, and in the meantime let’s jump off that mind blowing cliff hanger and onto a safe place of absolution found in ep. 12 “Finals.”

Jenna Gets Dumped (Again)

Despite her best efforts to stay committed to her schoolwork, after all ‘tis the season of finals, surprisingly she can’t look at a book and not think of Luke. So, when her string of apology texts goes unanswered, Jenna makes a house, er d...

MTV’s ‘Awkward’ Season 4 Teasers
Pregnancy, what pregnancy? Judging by the liplock session between Matty and Jenna in the “Awkward” trailer for the fall premiere, evil Eva’s pregnancy bomb hasn’t completely obliterated Jatty. But brace yourself Jatty shippers, showrunners Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler hint to TVLine there will be bumps in the road.

“Jenna’s trying to be an adult about Matty. Their romantic relationship didn’t work out, so she’s trying to move on. She’s trying to be a good friend.”

It seemed Palos Hills high school power couple turned sworn enemies Jake and Tamara are going that route this season. ...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 10 Recap: 'Snow Job'

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 10 Recap: 'Snow Job'
Famed theologian Martin Luther (most known for posting his ideas on a church door) once said, “A lie is like a snowball. The longer it is rolled on the ground the larger it becomes.” Eva’s mounting lies created a whole snowstorm, figuratively, of course. However, I wouldn’t put it past her in the literal sense. Hence “Awkward” season 10 mid- season finale ep title “Snow Job.” Eva, or should I say Amber (more on that later) certainly put in work to distance Matty from his friends snow pile of evidence against the master manipulator.

Starting with Sadie, who got kicked off the cheese bus hea...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 9 Recap: My Personal Statement
It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: when Jenna sheds her insecure skin and owns Jenna 2.0 that’s been fighting to come out all senior year. Well, she finally made an appearance and left Sadie speechless and Eva pissed off, in the process.

Let’s dive into "Awkward’s" penultimate ep, “Personal Statement,” which kicks off with Jenna traipsing confidently around her house flaunting a collegiate scarf. A hopeful fashion statement for pulling the trigger on her college app submissions later on that night, but still makes a mental checklist of her qualifications (grades ✓extra-curricular ...

6 Ways 'Awkward's' Eva Maneuvered A Matty Hook-Up

6/11/2014 9:24am EDT
MTV
Now that MatEva is an official thing (ewww, I know) or at least seems to be, me thinks Eva’s more the D.T.F girl, rather than the D.T.R type chick. Either way her mission to land a McKibben is pretty, much accomplished, but not without some manipulative maneuvering to get there. So, here we trace the 6 scheming steps Eva took to snag Matty.

1. For starters, she drove a wedge between Matty’s friends-with-benefits, sometime girlfriend, let’s just be friends partner Jenna. One startling example: Jenna looked to Eva for some girl counseling on Matty’s one word text to her, and she makes matter...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 8 Recap: Prison Breaks
Just when we thought Matty and Jake were the only ones on legal lockdown, Jenna, Luke and Tamara created their own version of being under lock and key in "Prison Breaks" ep.

We pick up where we left off: six happy couples crowding Tamara’s car are replaced with two mopping singles just shy of an Adele-like meltdown. Shaking off Matty’s verbal sting, Jenna offers to get all their grooves back with an impromptu college tour of hotties. Sadie blows off the rebound road trip whereas Tamara is 100 percent down to go; given her lifeline/stalker feed (her phone for those wondering) has been stole...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 7 Recap: After Hours
How long before Matty’s spiral of destructive acts comes to a halt? If I were a betting woman I’d say the season finale. Until then, his latest night life adventure lands him in the clink alongside Jake. Jenna can’t shake her feelings for Matty and another two-some has changed their relationship status to single on Facebook.

“After-Hours” opens as a horror movie, okay, my own version of terror: Jenna’s working on math equations, but more or less reciting “1+1.” And we all know that extra numeral is … come on where there is an open book there he’ll be; Luke. The study session quickly turns ...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 6 Recap: Crowning Glory
Guess we can officially crown Jenna and Luke ‘shippers ‘cause nothing constitutes a D.T.R more than a pumpkin spice latte and bouquet of flowers. Other “crown-worthy”--hence the ep’s title --moments to note is Matty’s public confession and Jake’s catfish heartbreak. Let’s break it down.

Jenna 2.0 is in full effect with Luke by her side and the couple’s favorite aphrodisiac, books, sprawled on his bed. Jenna 2.0 can tots go on romantic rendezvous without parental permission. Curfew, you ask? What’s a curfew when your besties are in charge? Welp, it still means something to “Kev,” whose cal...

Fasten your seatbelts; it’s going to be a bumpy night, for some more than others (heehee). Jenna and Tamara discover their college selves. NEWSFLASH: they couldn’t be more different. Matty continues to self-medicate on his adoption woes and Lacey has a super fun frat party night.

Let’s dive in; the “Overnight” ep opens with Tamara and Jenna multitasking: combing Southern Coast University campus for hotties while simultaneously quizzing each other on their college interviews. Tamara’s “in” will be her name (Talent, Ambition, Mindfulness, Ability, Reflection and Acronyms) her usual go-to met...

Brett Davern Returns To Win 2014 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race
Brett Davern has definitely left his mark on the auto racing world. After a surprising second-place finish last year, Brett returned to put our jaws on the floor again as he was named champion of the 2014 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race. While he proved on Saturday that he has as much racing talent as he does acting talent, BFTV was on hand to document Brett's climb to the top. We also checked back in with Cole Hauser, Rutledge Wood and Tricia Helfer to talk about how they fared behind the wheel.

Brett represents everything that's fantastic about the Pro/Celebrity Race. In 2013, he came in and r...

'Awkward' Review: Episode 'Taking Sides'

11/6/2013 8:46am EST
Awkward
The fallout continues. Jenna Hamilton, the once likeable protagonist of Awkward, carries on with her transformation into a complete monster. The show is all too happy to portray Jenna as the villain of her own story. As if cheating on her almost perfect boyfriend with no regard to his feelings wasn’t bad enough, her character has begun to take on new negative attributes as if they were accessories on her new look.

It’s been 3 weeks since the break up and Jenna has comfortably moved on with Collin. Her friends and family, however, can’t bring themselves to make that step so quickly. Jenna’s...

Awkward Review Episode “And Then What Happened”

10/30/2013 7:52am EDT
Awkward
“I am an a-hole, a cheater, and a liar. And everyone hates me.” Within the first two minutes, Jenna sums up her situation pretty clearly. She, a character who held viewer’s sympathy for years, has become everything she never was. Anybody who has been watching and enjoying Awkward for this long is going to take a side and perhaps feel disappointed and as upset with Jenna’s actions as she is with herself. So it was smart for the show to spend more time with the side characters digesting what happened than to stick with Jenna and/or Matty as they wallow in self pity.

'Awkward' Review: Episode 'The Gift'

10/23/2013 8:46am EDT
Awkward
On the first half of season three, Awkward’s constantly worrying protagonist, Jenna, devolved from a thoughtful but invisible girl to an extremely unlikeable character. Her thoughts became solely about her own actions and feelings, lacking the empathy she felt in the first two seasons. Then she cheated on Matty, who spent the entire season proving that he was a fantasy boyfriend, with Collin, a guy who was mysterious to her simply because he took writing classes and cared about art. Way to be a cliché, Jenna.

Too bad the midseason premiere had to begin with everybody celebrating Jenna. It’...
