In addition, MTV has picked up four new unscripted series set to debut in 2014. Untitled Virgins Project is a docuseries that follows the lives and relationships of several young versions.
MTV's House of Food is about young aspiring chefs who live in a house in Los Angeles and compete against each other in cooking challenges to win an apprenticeship, while Snackdown is another cooking competition show on which young cooks are tasked with elevating typical "munchies fare." The judges panel will consist of supermodel Chrissy Teigen, master chef Jason Quinn and another as-yet-unnamed judge.
The Ex and the Why is a half-hour daytime show where young people are given the opportunity to resolve issues from their past relationships and gain closure or a second chance.
"We've got a pretty explosive line-up with this new slate of shows — virgins, food and exes — all part of the millennial palate," MTV head of Programming Susanne Daniels said in a statement.
