    Do you think it’d harder for all of you guys at the newspaper to get along? Because in the last episode (The one with prom) you guys seemed so happy in that ‘Wanted’ picture…but now it seems so different! Do you ever think you’ll be as close with them as you use to?

    amanda is my favorite! (next to adam haha)

    - would it be weird if i friended you on facebook?
    - does anyone act differently around the cameras?
    - did MTV know you were going to be editor-in-chief to begin with? because you were narrating so it would have been weird if someone else got it…
    - what has been your favorite aspect of this experience (being on the show, The Paper)?
    - how did you get on the show?
    - what do you want to be when you grow up?

  • DeAnn

    I love the show Amanda…sooooo long ago I was on my high school newspaper and watching your show brings back good childhood memories.
    But ANYWAY…

    What are your future plans and do they include Journalism/communications?

  • ericka

    How do you feel about people who seem to be your friends to your face turn around and talk shit about you when you arn’t around?

  • eddie jones

    holy cow I can’t believe I missed or will be missing this. Why isn’t MTV labeled in the same class as HBO is. Theres nothing but homosexuals on that channel, it might as well be the homosexual channel, real nice programming you sickos

  • edaj

    amanda is such a funny,sarcastic,and smart girl,with a great sense of fashion..

    where do you shop for clothes and accessories?

  • miles Gilbert

    Hi Amanda,
    first of all, I think you are really beautiful.
    Second, where did you decide to go for college after high school?

  • tien

    Where do you shop & what are your favorite brands?


    Ask her why she let the other doofus do the front page when it’s her job.

    Ask her that if she wanted to be Editor in Chief so bad– why isn’t she acting like one.

    Ask her why she just sits around and lets everyone put together the paper while she just sits on her ass and watches with her mouth hanging open.

    she annoys me….

    If you could write for any newspaper in the world, which one would you write for?

  • KIM

    I live in the same city and this was filmed over a year ago! All of these kids are already in college!

  • libertyk

    i LOVE this show – and Amanda you are really classy.

    I wondering about the production of reality shows…
    - What was the process of agreeing to be on an MTV reality show?
    - Do you feel like the editors/producers cut certain scenes or encouraged certain conversations in order to create drama?
    - Did you have any qualms while filming about being put on tv for the whole world to see?
    - Do you feel like people were accurately portrayed?

    Either way I think you’re really brave Amanda and just keep doing what you do!

  • zoey

    how do you think your newspaper staffs compare to others across the country? what are your thoughts if someone told you that not all newspaper staffs are as dysfunctional as yours?

  • Amanda roxxx!!

    Hey Amanda! I totally think you’re awesome and misunderstood. Anyway, why is Adam such a diva. BTW…is he gay? Me and my friends all think so.

  • Ellen

    LMFAO!! Who cares about her??
    No one cares about the teenagers on MTV with their pointless shows.
    MTV is Killing itself with all this stupid shows, who wants to sit there and watch a show about high school kids and their school newspaper???
    Are you out of your freaking mind?
    Do people really have no lives?

  • R.J.

    I would like to say, first off, that i adore Amanda and don’t see why her staff is so rude. Amanda takes the paper seriousely, that doesn’t make her a bad person.

    my question is…. Amanda, Why haven’t you slapped Giana yet? She is a complete idiot and b*tch. How she has any friends is beyond me.

  • I’m betting on Alice.

    I have that dress. :)

  • Mrazrockit

    Uh… no one cares about this chick.

  • Cami

    Alex is mad ugly.. how anyone thinks he’s remotely attractive is beyond me.

    I love your style and hair Amanda.. the glasses are very cute.

  • stephanie

  • kyle
