“As we spend more time at home this year, our fascination with where and how others live is growing,” said Craig Orr, Vice President of Original Content & Development at ViacomCBS Networks International. “MTV Cribs continues to connect our worldwide audiences with their favorite stars as they welcome us into their homes for an exclusive tour. This is pure property porn escapism at its most fabulous.” The talent also has chimed in expressing their enthusiasm. “I’m pumped to bring MTV fans into the colorful world of JoJo — complete with my most memorable outfits and the slime game room of my dreams,” said Siwa.

Expect the unexpected.”
Originally launching in 2000, MTV Cribs was a documentary-style program that featured private tours of celebrity homes. The series ran for thirteen seasons and created several memorable moments including the infamous Redman episode where he kept it all the way real with his trap-inspired “De La Casa” in Staten Island.
