Teen Mom - Helping or Hurting

I just found out that the girls on Teen Mom make $140,000 for a six month stint. For a year, it's $280,000. Do you think this will make an impact on teenage girls getting pregnant? I'm afraid girls will look at it and say, if I get on that show, I will make money and be able to take care of myself. How about you?
