'16 & Pregnant' Recap: Tyler Bails On Jordan & Chase

16 & Pregnant Recap

Can an episode of ’16 & Pregnant’ ever have a happy ending? Poor Jordan thinks she has a man that ‘caters to her,’ but she gets a big surprise in the end!

The April 24 episode of 16 & Pregnant introduced a 17-year-old pregnant student named Jordan Howard from Lancaster, Penn., and her boyfriend Tyler Zeplin – but her mom Kelly doesn’t like them together, especially because Tyler is white! She doesn’t even let Tyler come into their house!

The interracial couple love each other even though they may come from different families and backgrounds. Jordan loves Tyler, even though he is a loner and un-popular. Her mother’s opinion of Tyler is not very high. She thinks he is “dirty looking” and “disrespectful.” She insists there is no way that they will be “shacking up” after the baby is born.

Jordan stays at Tyler’s house most of the time, just in case she goes into labor. She also wants to live with Tyler at his house after the birth.

Out of all the 16 & Pregnant couples, Jordan and Tyler actually accommodate and understand one another the best — or so it seemed at the beginning!

The real obstacle is Jordan’s mom! When Jordan and Tyler decided to bring the crib to his house — it was previously at her’s — it makes Kelly furious! But like any loving mom, she doesn’t want to stay mad at her daughter, so so she and Jordan make up, which causes Jordan to decide to stay with her mother with the baby.

Kelly decides to allow Tyler to come over the house when ever he wants. She said there will be an “open door.” Will Tyler take advantage of the new policy?

But when their baby boy Chase Alexander is born, the momentum of their relationship quickly changes — for the worse!

Immediately after Chase is born, Tyler bails and doesn’t even spend the night with Jordan and the baby. In fact, days go by when he doesn’t see or speak to Jordan.

Big surprise… not!

Kelly was right all along to not let Tyler come over because he chose not to anyway! He made excuses and more excuses as to why he couldn’t come see Chase, so ultimately Jordan becomes a single mom with the intent to gain full custody of adorable Chase. Of course, her mother is more than thrilled.

Were you surprised that Tyler and Jordan ended their relationship, leaving her alone with the baby? Or did you expect the dramatic ending?

You are so right! He was verbally abused and had to listen to racial slurs! They wouldn’t even let tyler have visitation! How is that fair that the only way he can see his child is by sitting in a house surrounded by racists that want to beat you up? You’d think by 2012 we could stop with the racism please people! Get custody rights Tyler!

First of all misery loves company n jordan your mother just became your bestfriend!!! You are the company very much understand you are just a child but even you should know right from wrong!!!!!funny i don’t. See a man in your mothers house either wonder why….your mother got you to turn your back on your babydaddy real quick I’m so sure tyler and his parents feel play’d by you cause that’s what you did how comfortable would you be if his parents treated you like your Mom treated him then turn around and say aw now you aloud in my house i wouldn’t trust it either or even be over there n yeah i wouldn’t come over knowing she was there either you sat there n did exactly what she said n she made sure of it played you like a deck of cards apple don’t fall far from the tree
Just messed up that your child gets the short end of the stick n didn’t get a fair chance to even attempt to be a good babydaddy…but I’m sure the extra benefits you n the baby bring to your mothers household makes it worth every minute “for her” smdh i bet you sit there sayin your right about him he dont he won’t he should he could i never thought he would be like that n your Mom i told you so of course she did she had you wrap’d while You untide him!!! Your mother is a control freak……

Jordan’s mom is half white half black was showing her black side and it does matter when it comes to being comfortable in a household poor child sense those things. Jordan and her family is racist! Tyler should file for joint custody hopefully he gets full custody cause his family doesn’t promote hate

The person who wrote this blog is so far out in right field it isnt funny. Tyler wanted to be with the baby but it was jordan and her family that kept him at bay. Why would he want to go to her house if the mother is going to spout racist comments and the brothers want to beat him up. Not a safe place for him or their child. I hope that Tyler fights for joint custody so the Jordan’s mother can no longer have any say in what happens with this baby.

first and foremost i do not blame tyler for bailing out.you can only take so much.the mother should have been more into her daugher getting preventative measures for not getting pregnant and than after she gets pregnant who the baby is by.the mother had no right calling names and trying to play mother after the fact.tyler has as much right as the mother after all he is the father.tyler needs to take them to court for his rights.the one scene where she stated that how is he going to feel holding a black baby was way out of line.thst is his baby.i just hope that the baby will not hear the negative thoughts that comes out of their mouths.after all he is the daddy.grow up the pres of united states was raised by a single mother and looke how he has turned out.this is just what happen’s when children to on adult matters after all she is pregnant at 16.

I was highly disgusted with her mothers’ behavior but in the end she did open her home up to Tyler and his parents and they refused to invitation. It should have never been about the adults need of the baby parents its about what the baby needed. Tyler and his parents chose to forget that. Even though her mother was out of line at times I think that was her way of dealing with the disappoint her daughter getting pregnant. At the end of the day I’m sorry Mothers are always right especially when it come to their daughters.

I’m with you on Tyler’s actions — Jordan’s mother behaved very badly, but nothing except possibly the threat of violence ought to keep a parent from attempting to visit his child. Discomfort at being in Jordan’s mother’s house does not explain why Tyler couldn’t call daily to check up on Chase, pick up Jordan and Chase for regular visits at his house/at the park, etc. When things didn’t go Tyler’s way, he and his family gave up immediately. That is plain wrong. If you give a darn about your child, you need to keep working at it and find a way to share the child’s life in peace.

That said, Jordan’s mom was a genius at fanning the drama. She played a big role in making her daughter’s life harder. No excuse for that.

I’ll give these kids one piece of credit: unlike practically everyone else on 16&P, they chose a normal, appropriate name for the baby. No cutesy spelling or anything. Praise Jeebus for that.

I think you are wrong. I am pretty sure Tyler felt like threaten. How is he suppose to feel comfortable with her brothers watching their every move.

Jordan’s mom was so rude!! and i absolutely wouldn’t have felt comfortable in that house either.. her mother made it abundantly clear that she didn’t like Tyler.. and like some of the other people said.. it was so akward when he did come over.. her brothers are watching them talk.. and talking about.. “this ain’t no white person house”… why the hell would you want to go over there??? I hope that Jordan and her mother watched her episode and saw how ridiculous and racist they were being.. and that Tyler gets part custody! nuts!! that family should be embarrassed.

I feel like Jordan felt more comfortable with her mom, even though jirdam and her mom had their ups and downs home is home. Regardless if Jordan’s mom is raciest or not he still should of come around you don’t neglect your child because you feel uncomfortable. He should of thought about the type of family she had before he got her pregnant. what If she would of moved with him and they got into arguments which is bound to happen and she went home to her mom would he drop out of his child’s house then? Tyler is not right at all for that. Even though Tyler had previous problems with Jordan’s mom he was still welcomed in their home with open arms he should of took advantage of it.

Tyler was never welcome in her mothers house. The mother played her like a deck cards. The mother wanted to keep Jordan close so that she spit venom in her head. Jordan mother has 4 or 5 kids with no man. come on…

Her mother completely manipulated the entire situation. She knew exactly what she was doing when she had Jordan move back home. I think if the mother wasn’t such a prejudiced manipulating person and didn’t set him up to fail he would’ve put in more effort. Of course he wasn’t comfortable going over there. I feel bad that Jordan is letting her mother make her decisions to keep daddy out. That’s the sad thing about these young girls. They’re so easily persuaded to do what the parents want and not what’s right for the kids. It’s the lack of knowledge and Jordan’s mother took advantage of that for her own selfish needs.

What a nasty person that awful mother is!! How dare she talk about how ugly her daughters boyfriend is!!!! I hope she finds this so she can know just how literally ugly she is to everyone that watches the show! LOOK in the mirror you FAT UGLY mess of a woman!! Your child’s mistakes are a reflection of just how shitty of a parent you are!! And your sons running after a teen, trying to jump him!! That’s a disgrace! That FAT ASS must have a complex with just how white she looks, to have become such a RACIST bitch!! Way to fit the stereotype momma!! And that poor poor baby is gonna be raised to continue the disgusting pattern of racism in that tiny condo!!! Even though the baby is for sure going to look more white than anything!! Please let that father get custody of his baby!! And the baby’s mom is an idiot!! Hello little girl, one more year of school and you will at least have a diploma! We know it’s hard, but a lot of the other girls on the show seem to have been able to do it! Get off your lazy ass and figure some shit out, or keep your legs crossed!!….. Wow I hope she gets on birth control so she will not continue to bring more children that are unfortunate enough to grow up learning how to hate white people!!!!!! That’s the last thing America needs!!! What an upsetting episode!!

Jordan’s mother was just a racist right fighter and never really wanted it to work out . Talkin about no white people in her house , what is she her skin look white as his. Jordan let her take control and look were it got her. He was right to dought the mom when she finally said he could come over. Because the best prediction of future behavior is past behavior. Dont give up on that baby having a shot on both parents cause he did not ask to be here in all that mess.

They probably didn’t make it because of her mother. Why would tyler even want to go in that house knowing how jordan mother feels about him. Her mother got what she wanted, tyler out of the picture.

I never comment on these things but I just couldn’t stand by this time and say nothing. Is this girl out of her mind. How can you expect Tyler to be comfortable coming to ur home when it was made clear time and time again that he was not wanted there. That fake ass apology “mom” gave was a ploy to get her back home. And now that she is there mom is back in control. U can’t say this was not a race issue when every comment made by this women has something about him being white in it. Mom was disrespectful from the very beginning and just got back what she dished out. I do not feel sorry for her not even a little bit. To say he didn’t do anything for ur kid is a lie when it was stated that he spent his whole savings on baby stuff. I hope he goes for custody

Jordan after watching your episode it shocked me that you would not end up with your baby’s daddy but I am also a teen mom and I know what your going though at first my parents would get involved in our relationship and we would fight over the stupid little things until i had to realize my family now were me,my baby and my husband yes my parents were always going to be my parents but now i was a parent of my own how would you feel if when your son grew up and his baby’s mom didn’t let him be part of his life? sad but come to think of it us girls have alot of rights over the child well if your going to have him at your place you should take the baby with his parents to be equal. also give him his place as the dad and try it for chase

1.Jordan’s mother was wrong by not letting the boyfriend come to the house while she was pregnant. Wouldn’t let him come in the house but let her spend the night with his family.

2.His parents really wanted the baby in at their home and seemed to be a little pissed that Jordan decided to go back to the her moms house, hello that is her mom…..

3.I him and his parents really don’t feel welcomed and they choose to stay away. However, on Tyler’s part you are just making the mother statements come true.

Felt really bad for Jordan, I really wanted Tyler to prove her mother wrong.

Why should a white person have to take racist slurs and abuse? Nobody should! Tyler looked scared as he’ll everytime he was over there. Jordan’s mother clearly was not accepting and racist towards Tyler. If a white person said to a black person “a black man can’t raise a white baby!” or “this ain’t no black peoples house!” while chasing you? Um I think more people would be upset. She’s racist. Period. It’s sad she hates that part of herself. You would think by now people could stop with the racism!

This episode completely pissed me off, her mom to me is the definition of what ignorance is…..why do you not like someone b/c they’re white that is crazy & stupid, i feel her mom totally munipulated Jordan into coming back by saying that it would be ok for tyler to come visit, she did it because she knew Jordan would fall back into her web, i personally dont like the fact that tyler doesnt come over or help support the baby, but honestly, i DO NOT blame tyler for not wanting to come around, i would not want to come around either i mean look at the way Jordan’s mom treated Tyler & Jordan i would not feel comfortable coming around either after you & your family talk bad about me & have nothing but negative things to say there is no way in the world i would want to be around you or your family. I still feel Jordan’s mother manipulated her into coming home there is no doubt in my mind that she told them it was okay for Tyler to come visit just to have control on her daughter.

Exactly! Jordan’s mom’s apology was fake! She knew that if she pretended to accept Tyler, then Jordan would mo e home and she could talk crap about him and drive a wedge between them. They all took his absence as being a dead beat dad but he was protecting his own well-being from emotional and possible physical abuse. All the poor guy wanted was time alone with the baby at a place where he felt safe. That’s not too much to ask, afterall, isn’t that what Jordan got everyday?

Her mothers behavior was from the dissapointment that her daughter got pregnant by a white boy! She said a white man can’t raise a black child! She’s racist. Period. If she was all white and racist against black people someone would actually give a crap!
