A new guy has officially entered the ring! Is this the end of Jenna & Matty?
On the May 28 episode of Awkward, Team Matty and Team Jake will finally be able to unite under a common enemy: Team Collin! Jenna (Ashley Rickards) has been casually inching closer to brooding bookworm Collin (Nolan Funk) all season, but sparks will really start to fly when they come together for a live reading of their work — and you can bet Jenna’s mom will have a few thoughts on the matter.
“She’s a huge Team Matty supporter,” Nikki DeLoach tells HollywoodLife.com of Lacey. “She’s going to have some very specific thoughts on Collin. … Any time a new boy, or a new person in general, comes into the picture … you’re so affected by them. That’s what happens in middle school and high school; you become those you hang out with.”
Though she can’t say whether it’s good or bad, Nikki says fans will “see Jenna change in a lot of different ways” this season — and Collin has a lot to do with that:
“That boy is definitely going to affect her,” she says.
Is Matty Worried About Jenna & Collin?
Shortly before season three premiered, I chatted with Beau Mirchoff for the inside scoop on Jenna and Collin’s relationship, and it sounds like our boy Matty’s in serious denial.
“Matty trusts Jenna at this point,” Beau told me. “Maybe he’s a little naïve, I don’t know. He gets to know Collin, and kind of likes him, actually. He wants him to do well. But maybe Collin has a little ulterior motive.”
