Teen Mom - Tyler Is Too Sexy For His Shirt

tyler baltierra

So Tyler uploaded a photo to either show off his new added weight, or to show a sample from a Playgirl photo shoot.

The question I need to ask is, if this is Tyler with added weight, what was he before? A stick figure?

What do you guys think about this new upload? Let's have an open discussion hosted by Catelynn's wet dream.


In my honest opinion I think Tyler is gay. I've gotten gay vibes from him for a while and my gaydar is usually on point. This picture REALLY furthers my precious suspicions because this is not a picture a straight guy willingly poses for and posts. Ever. Nothing against him if he is but I think he's definitely in the closest. Hate on me all you want for this comment but its my honest opinion and has been for years now.


Yeah he does come off a little fruity, but maybe it's because he was raised by his mother...making him more feminine..I dont know, I'm a girl..I wouldn't want to 'be' with him, ever, at all. Thinking about him sexually gives me the heebee geebee's. Plus as soon as I laye my eyes on this photo I seriously LOL'd. Is he serious? Is this dude for real...not hot.

I can picture him and Cate staying up all night gossiping and doing each others nails more easily than I can picture them up all night "doing the deed". I can't even believe they ever made a baby except that she looks just like him.

You look good :) :p

Haha i never thought about that..now while i think hes attractive enough he has good skin and bone structure i dont think i could ever sleep with him. But who knows maybe catelyn knows and is okay with it haha

I call false on that statement about straight guys. I've seen tons of guys pose for pictures like this in mirrors. It's pretty ridiculous to me and I do not find it attractive. But then I think to myself, maybe the girls that do find it attractive are the ones that are also posing pretty much shirtless in a mirror, showing off their boobs/stomach/duckface.

I agree with Ashley -- plenty of straight guys pose for douchey, male model-esque photos all the time. (I mean, have you seen those Paul Ryan workout photos? BARF!) Totally lame and unattractive, but I definitely don't think it means Tyler is gay.

It's not just this picture that have people thinking Tyler is gay. It's just an added example on a list of things a mile long.

i disagree completely. look around facebook once, youll see tons of guys posting pictures of themselves with their shirts off looking in a mir and all that jazz. hes one of the actual decent guys on this show and a real man to the ladies in his life. hes how a man should be.

hes also probably use to posing for pictures. to me he looks like he could be a model in this picture.

i've always thought that too! poor catelyn the beard!

I completely agree, Tyler is gay no doubt. I've thought he was gay ever since the previews for 16 & Pregnant aired on MTV. I thought he was Catelynn's gay brother who was in support of adoption, i was SHOCKED when her episode aired and he was her boyfriend (and brother..) because he came off as so gay in the previews and he still does.

And this is not sexy either. He is not sexy. He looks like a 12 year old boy who hasn't even hit puberty yet.

I thought that too and was surprised he has armpit hair. lol

This looks like a picture you would see on a craigslist M4M add. Why is his hand up behind his head like that? Just.. lol.

Why would they put the tv there? You can't see it from the bed and directly across from it is just a wall. Am i missing something? Is it just there for display and they don't watch it?

He looks like he should be doing twink porn.

Well you know what they say overbearing mother distant father...Freud suggested it could impac on sexuality but hey who knows in the nature/nurture debate.

It seems pretty mean to speculate on someones sexuality but there hae been studies that show things like "gaydars" exist and that femine gestures/ movements can be related to a male having a more feminine brain and therefore being gay.

Also what is with that tattoo placement it's the "Carly" tattoo which is just awkward to look at every time you have sex maybe that is like their birth control equivalent?

They come off as very platonic to me. If Carly wasn't living proof that they've done the deed, i wouldn't even believe they were dating.

I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that in 9 months these kids will be married. Husband and wife, forever.
I'm not trying to knock their relationship, obviously it's working for them. I just can't picture it until 'death do them part'!
I guess a lavender marriage situation is possible between these two. Who really knows?

They have a blanket that is a huge picture of Carly. If that's not birth control for them, I don't think anything is.

There is also a real-life Catelynn in the bed. That should definitely serve as an off-switch to any sexual activity.

wow, wheres your picture?

I'm a few years older than him and always found him to be really young looking and not someone I'm attracted to.

After this picture, scratch that. Tyler can put it in me. Like, now.

Are you a man?

Tyler is great to Catelynn and they seem very happy together. Gay or not I wish more guys were like Tyler, he treats Catelynn so well. :) As for the pic, it isn't for me but this is the dream guy for some! He is kinda small, maybe some muscles would help!

You guys are unbelievable. Give this boy a break. He does not look gay at all. He looks really young and handsome. He's been through a lot so let him have fun! He deserves it. He has a damn good heart!

You go Tyler!! I support u all the way!! Love ya!

i don't get how saying he is gay is being mean....

he seems gay!!!

its just awkward for me. whether he's gay or not i don't know. but i definitely think catelynn is way more in love with tyler than he is with her. also a lot of people say they are the most mature people in the series. i disagree. i think their decision to place their daughter for adoption was one of the most mature things. but there's little things about them that are very immature. like at the end of the "ask the moms" special, yelling at the camera and making faces. sure its silly and fun, but they are not mature. i don't even think they are mature enough to get married yet, even though they've been together for 8 or 9 years or whatever.

No, actually, I'm pretty sure they're mature.

I don't think being silly in an appropriate setting makes you immature. They didn't need to act serious in that situation and they had the maturity to recognize that. They just know how to laugh at themselves which isn't a bad thing at all.

That is the gayest thing I have ever seen, and I have seen gay porn.

Now imagine him doing this same pose in 25 years - can you envision Butch taking this same photo?

I think he is really hot. Lucky Cate ;)

the comments i read were all negative but I've always thought he was a cutie. Yes he comes off as feminine but I think other men do too and they're straight. I think the extra weight looks good on him

So you think being gay is a negative thing?

Oh. Umm...
I'm sorry, I'll comment later, I have to go vomit.

My honest opinion...I think Ty looks HAWT!!! There's nothing wrong with a guy that wants to be well groomed, clean, and smell good...I don't think he's gay at all...he's as much as a man as any other!!!
Just a better one...a lot of females are just not used to seeing a decent guy...that actually has taste...and loves unconditionally...I love this couple...I think they're adorable...

I love Tyler (and Cate). He seems like a really nice kid, and he loves Cate and his daughter. This, however, well...no. Cate retweeted it and said something about it being sexy - I guess it works for them? He has a sweet face, but his body just isn't something I think he should be showing off. I'd never attack him for no reason, but since you asked for comments - his weight gain looks like it all settled in his belly and came from mac n cheese.

I must be getting really old. He looks so young to me, to think of him as sexy borders on pedophilia. But to a teen I'm sure for some he's a heart throb. I don't think he's gay, just not really manly, which isn't a bad thing considering how some "manly" men can be real jerks (think Jersey Shore). He and Catelyn are a cute couple and seem to be very much in love so good for them. They're probably too young to get married but they've been together a long time so hopefully they know what they're doing.

Tyler is definetly gay. It stands out in so many ways and this is just another one. Even on his twitter when he goes on to compliment Cate its like he's trying so hard to sound manly. As for Cate, I wanna say she's more obsessed then in love with him. She does what he wants her to inorder to not lose him. (Placing Carly for adoption, going to the club, hurrying up and enrolling in school, "If you dont do this or that I'll leave you"). I feel like Tyler knows he's gay, but havin Butch as a father keeps him from coming out; therefore, he stays with Catelynn. Also, having just your mom raise you doesn't make you more feminine. I've seen alot of guys raised by single moms be more tough and overprotective. Yes some may be more thoughtful and caring of women but Tylers manners are just borderline gay.

Plus the way he looks at Cate when she climbs on top of him and kisses him. Priceless! Lol.!

Honestly, I've never thought he was gay and I like to think I've got a pretty stellar gaydar. I think if anythign he's just slow on the puberty and maybe that's way. I don't really think he has gay mannerisms at all.

You do have a compelling point with your last sentence though... he does give her like a "wtf, get off me" kind of look when she goes to kiss him but I always thought it was just because it's not fun to have a heavy person suddenly clobber you.

His head looks really small! like a pea...

Some guys who are raised by single mothers are more feminine. Some are not. Depends on alot of factors, Tyler is on the more feminine side if you ask me, I mean..Do you watch the show? I see him wearing big chains, driving around in a cadillac like a G, what is he trying to prove? They are both nice kids...not trying to 'bash' him but it seems like he wants people to believe he is straight. It dont matter to me if he's straight or gay, but Im leaning toward the latter.

WTF is that pose!?

I am totally aroused, and I'm a straight dude.

I dunno if he's gay or not..... but my gay friend took a pic just like this XD And his head is really small... lol.

The thing that has always been most alarming to me about Tyler's sexuality is that I don't think I've EVER seen him with a male-friend. Look at Ryan, Gary, Corey, Jo, Adam, etc. All of them have a best guy friend and are featured with their guy friends pretty regularly. Tyler on the other hand NEVER has any guy friends around. I've met guys who are more metro, or who just have a feminine air about them. But all of them have male friends who come off as 100% straight. Especially when it comes to teenagers, a straight HS guy is a lot less likely to hang out with a guy they think might be gay. Tyler NEVER has any guy friends. Even on twitter and stuff he's always featured with girl friends/ cate's friends. It's just very odd to me, and is more peculiar than any picture he posts or twitter post he says.

Honestly, I've never gotten "gay" vibes from Tyler. Most of you are stereotyping. "Oh he acts like a gay person because blah blah blah." Really? How does a gay person "act"? Enlighten me. His dad was never in his life, and he was raised by his Mom and lived with an older sister.

This is the first time I have ever seriously entertained the idea that Tyler is gay..WTF with that pose?!

I'm just going to state the obvious. These two aren't mature, they're naive. I don't know many high school sweethearts who stay together forever, especially if they were 14 when they started dating. Neither of them have ever had sex with anyone else! You can just see how sexually frustrated Tyler looks when you watch the last two seasons of the show. He even checks out Catelynn's friends whenever they're all hanging out in a group. These two definitely won't last long.

That, and he's probably already cheated on her.

Gay doesn't come to mind.Annoyed does.When these shows first came on I thought,OK. Give some kids an inside look at teenage pregnancy. It's hard.But as the years went on,I saw No real lessons.MTV provided and still does,way too much money to these "teenager".starting from teenmom 1 .Amber's in jail because of drugs that we all know she bought with the show money because neither her nor Gary worked,Farrah did get a degree in something but I really doubt she would be able to afford her home by the beach in Florida And plastic surgery,Maci is a good mother,but she has had a free ride also.More like 3 new rides.Tyler n Catelynn have not really accomplished much since giving their daughter away except buy a home, move to New Orleans to learn how to act(you don't need lessons your a good faker),and take these pictures of yourself. Their daughter should of kept every penny earned.I know her real parents don't need it but she deserves it.Gay???? Who cares!
