Jenks is back in Season 2 of "World of Jenks", but this time he's found three young people with lives so extraordinary that he had to spend an entire year experiencing life through their eyes. Kaylin is a bold and beautiful fashion designer striving to make it in New York City despite the cancer diagnosis that threatens her life. D-Real is a dancer in a crew whose video has gotten over 4.5 million hits on YouTube but whose day in the sun is shadowed by his brother's recent murder. And Chad is last year's fan favorite: a young guy with autism whose zest for life and friendship with Jenks is like nothing you've ever seen on TV before.
Jenks was the face of MTV News’ coverage of the 2012 Presidential Election, traveling the country speaking with Millennials and asking questions to Presidential candidates. The Daily News remarked that “...Jenks has been a voice for his generation for some time...and is carrying the weight of a potential 45 million younger voters on his shoulders.”
