New York, NY (August 15 , 2008) - MTV is taking viewers back into the luxurious lives of some of the most infamous divas from "My Super Sweet 16" but this time it's not for birthday cake - it's to watch them receive the ultimate reality check. It's been more than two years since the glitz and glamour of these teens' super sweet soirees and they're still living life with no limitations. But these spoiled Sweet 16ers have maxed out their parents' credit cards for the last time. In "My Super Sweet 16 Presents: EXILED!", premiering on Monday, August 25th at 10:30 pm ET/PT, their fed up parents will finally lay down the law and send their ungrateful kids to live with indigenous tribes in far flung countries to teach them the lesson of a lifetime. It's a dose of tough love these teens aren't ready for!

The series will feature some of the most memorable party throwers ever featured in "My Super Sweet 16" as they hand over their iPhones and Gucci bags and travel halfway around the world to far-off places like the Pacific island of Vanuatu, the Amazon rain forest, the Moroccan desert and the jungles of Thailand. Once there, the Sweet 16ers will have to live the way their host family does, which means participating in chores like building a hut out of cow dung in Kenya or herding reindeer in the frozen tundra of the Arctic Circle. Will these spoiled teens come back with a new perspective on life or will they simply crack under the pressure of the experience? You won't want to miss a minute of "My Super Sweet 16 Presents: EXILED!".

To complement the series, MTV's Think Community will provide viewers with information about the country and the indigenous groups of people visited in each episode. Think will also provide more information on the issues explored in the series as well including water and sanitation, malaria, environmental conservation and access to education.

Viewers will be able to discuss the show with each other as well as with the show's producer through the producer's Think blog on think.mtv.com.

And before the Sweet 16ers everyone loves to hate get EXILED, MTV will remind viewers of all the reasons why they're so unforgettable. On Saturday, August 23rd at

1pm - 7pm, a four-hour marathon of past episodes will feature the cast's fabulous parties, expensive gifts and terrible tantrums as we highlight each teen's most Exileable moments.

This is a trip that you don't want to miss!!

August 25th - Amanda

It's been three years since her Super Sweet 16 and Amanda is still living the life of a pampered princess. But her parents have finally had enough of her laziness and decide to EXILE her to Kenya, Africa. Can Amanda learn to grow up or will she wilt in the African heat?

September 1st - Ava

This Sweet 16er is one everyone will always remember- Ava shopped for a dress in Paris, threw a tantrum when she didn't get a Range Rover on her birthday and ran away from home forcing her mother to cancel her credit card. And three years later, she's still living the high life. She's a global studies major in college but this Beverly Hills girl knows nothing about the real world. Her parents decide it's time for a lesson she can't learn from books and EXILE her to the jungles of Thailand.

September 8th - Chelsi

Not much has changed in the two years since her Roman-themed Sweet 16. Chelsi still demands to be treated like a princess and refuses to even lift a finger at home. But when she is EXILED to the frozen tundra of Norway, will learning the ways of the Saami people teach her what a work ethic is or will being a reindeer herder push this diva over the edge?

September 15th - Bjorn

Three years ago, Bjorn proclaimed himself a DIVO while planning his over-the-top Sweet 16. And these days he still goes by the title and prides himself on his passion for fashion and maxing out Daddy's credit card. But Bjorn's parents have decided it's time for him to learn how to earn his keep so they EXILE him to the deserts of Morocco where he'll have to trade his Chanel duds for a turban and try to learn that the best things in life are free.

September 22nd - Marissa

Ditzy Marissa may not seem to know how to do a lot for herself but she has one skill mastered - getting what she wants. But this spoiled Daddy's girl won't get her way when her parents EXILE her to the hills of Kerala, Idia to live with the Ugali people. In this tribe, it's each woman for herself and Marissa won't have anyone to do the work for her. Can she learn to take care of herself or will she be calling begging her parents to let her come home?

September 29th - Meleny

Ever since throwing an 18th birthday party fit for Egyptian royalty, Meleny has been a royal pain. She's 20 years old, still living with her parents and still spending their money. In fact, she's never even spent a night away from them! So Meleny's family EXILEs her to Peru where herding llamas and dealing with altitude sickness make this experience a not-so-sweet reality check.

October 6th - Sierra

Growing up the daughter of famous hip-hop star Cee-Lo has taught Sierra how to be diva-licious as she showed at her legendary Sweet 15 birthday party. But three years later, Sierra is more of a diva than ever before. Her parents want to teach her that everything won't be handed to her on a silver platter and EXILE her to the Vocanic island of Vanuatu where she'll learn that it's not "who you know" that will earn you respect in this jungle.

October 13th - Alex

Two years after her Sweet 16, Alex is still the Paris Hilton-wannabe she always has been. But her father, a self-made man, wants to pull the plug on Alex's lavish lifestyle and decides to EXILE her to the Amazon jungles of Brazil. This pampered princess will soon learn that leaving her plush palace for a hut in the woods is not so "juicy".
