Fans of Teen Mom know Gary Shirley as Amber Portwood’s ex and as the father of little Leah. Gary is much more than that, though, with his own catch phrase (It’s Gary Time!) and a loveable personality. All of that awesomeness helped him gain a spot on a radio dating show!
Sound crazy? It kind of is, but it looks like the show was all in good fun. The event went down Thursday night and three contestants were picked to compete for a (cyber) date with Gary. Of course, this wasn’t any ordinary dating show and each of the girls were required to write (and perform) their own personal ode to Gary. There were some twists, though, and a wild-card girl was thrown into the mix to compete. In the end, a girl named Becca won the grand prize. Starcasm has an article detailing the girls and their songs.
So what do you think about Gary competing on a dating show? Viewers love him as a dad on Teen Mom and he definitely deserves to find a great girl, since things between he and Amber didn’t exactly work out. However, a radio dating show may not be the most conventional way of meeting someone, but people have done crazier things!
However Gary Shirley meets a girl, all fans care about is that he and his daughter, Leah are happy! Fans will have one more chance to catch Gary on the final Teen Mom series airing this summer on MTV.
