MTV will pair her up with gold medal ice skater, Lauren Shmalo, who will put a freeze on Whitney Jo's studies while she heats up the ice.

"Made: Triathlete" (2:00pm) - Heavyweight Brandon Baker thought his heft was a big joke until health issues put his life on the line. Now he's ready to take control of his life and his looks by being MADE into a triathlete!

"Made: Football Player" (3:00pm) - Spelling-bee superstar Sidhant can pass his classes with flying colors but can't complete a simple pass on the field.

But will he have enough time for both his studies and his training to master the game in time for tryouts?

She wants to break out of her bookish routine by being MADE into a glittery, glamorous, beauty pageant queen. With only 1 month till' the pageant can this math whiz go from brainiac to bombshell?

"True Life: I'm A Single Parent" (5:00pm) - Raising a child as a young adult is never easy, but the strain is even more acute when you're doing it all by yourself.

"True Life: I'm A Mixed Martial Arts Fighter" (6:00pm) � With its explosive combination of kickboxing, wrestling and jiu jitsu, mixed martial arts is one of the most rapidly growing sports in America.

"True Life: I'm Living Off The Grid" (7:00pm) � Imagine being so self-sufficient that you don't need public utilities for water or electricity and that your way of life causes little harm to the environment. It's called existing "off the grid"�and as energy costs rise and fossil fuels continue to damage our planet�more and more Americans are giving it a try. On this episode of True Life, you'll meet two young people who are taking green to the extreme by living in the wilderness for an entire year without using modern technology.
