TEEN Mom star Kailyn Lowry had her color-blind son Lincoln, eight, do a Skittles challenge, and fans were shocked by the outcome.
The experiment saw a bag of the candy poured out on a plate, with all of the different colored pieces all mixed together, and he had to separate them.

Kailyn, who shares Lincoln with ex-husband Javi Marroquin, previously shared that her son sees colors differently and mixes some of them up.
In a video of the challenge, Lincoln sat with his hoodie up and concentrated intensely as he worked to group to get like-colored Skittles.
Little by litte, he started to put most of the reds to one side, yellows to another, and purples to another.
He grouped the oranges and the greens together.
In the end, a couple of reds landed with the purples, as well.
Kailyn wrote with the clip: “Linc is color deficient and wanted to do the skittles challenge.”
She added, after later showing a photo of the results from another version of the challenge: “And we did it with the more muted color Skittles LOL.”
Fans were surprised to see how well Lincoln did with the game and shocked to learn how he sees different colors and shades.
“Interesting that some of the same colored ones look different to him,” one wrote.
Another said: “Ahhh he almost got them all. He’s so cute.”
A third commented: “Good job Linc! Interesting that he sees green and orange as the same.”
To that, the mother-of-four explained: “Some shades of red & black, purple and black look the same to him. Also mixes up blue and purple”
Overall, Teen Mom fans were just happy to see how “proud” Lincoln was of himself and to see his “satisfied smile” at the end.
Kailyn revealed that Lincoln is color blind during an episode of her podcast Coffee Convos last year.
During the podcast, the 29-year-old told cohost Lindsie Chrisley that she was shopping for an Xbox for Lincoln ahead of his birthday.
When she tried to customize the controller, she asked her son what his favorite colors are.
After he told her his favorite colors are red, blue and orange, she decided to make the controller with those colors and his name on it.
Kailyn said: “I’m sitting there and I’m clicking around on the colors and I’m like trying to make this cool controller and I’m like, ‘What I see as red, blue and orange and not what you see as red, blue and orange.’
“I looked at him. I said, ‘Lincoln, come here.’ I said, ‘Come pick out what colors you like, cause I don’t f**king know.’
“What he sees as red, blue and orange are in fact completely different than what I was picking for red, blue and orange.”
The MTV star shared that “green and orange are interchangeable for him,” adding: “Depending on the shade, he thinks either the green is brown or the green is orange.”
She continued: “Shades of blue can be purple and shades of red can be black.”
Earlier this year, the Teen Mom star tested her son on what color her eyes are.
The 29-year-old told her Instagram followers: “We were asking Lincoln what colors things were to see what he sees because he’s color blind.
“Someone in my comments said for me to ask him what color my eyes are.
“So, we’re about to ask him to see what he sees.”
The blue-eye reality star walked over to the table and switched the camera from being on her face to showing Lincoln sitting down and smiling, ready to answer whatever she threw his way.
She asked: “Lincoln, what color are my eyes.”
He quickly responded: “Like, greenish, brownish.”
