Watch Jersey Shore: Family Vacation
- 5 Seasons
The original cast of MTV's reality party series Jersey Shore returns for the reboo Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. The original series ended in 2012. In the meantime, the hard-partying cast members have become parents and spouses. But they're eager to show that they still have plenty of party left in them. This time they're getting together far from Jersey. Jersey Shore somewhat follows the mold set by previously popular reality TV shows: 8 people are brought together to live in a house and have their lives taped for the world to see. The goings on in the group home are wild and crazy, proving again that real life is more dramatic than soap operas. The first season took place during a summer in New Jersey, where the cast is from, but subsequent seasons have seen the cast moved to new locales. This is all familiar to people who have seen other reality TV shows, but what makes Jersey Shore so unique is the cast. The most famous, perhaps infamous, cast member is Nicole Polizzi (AKA "Snooki"). Snooki's antics have gained her widespread notoriety; she has been filmed getting arrested, sleeping around, being very drunk, being a ditz, and much more. The rest of the cast, while not as prominent as the aforementioned 'breakout star' of the show, also bring a great deal of appeal to the show. The cast has not remained the same throughout every season, but the other current cast members are: Deena Cortese, Jennifer Farley ("JWoww"), Michael Sorrentino ("The Situation"), Paul Delvecchio ("Pauly D"), Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Samantha Giancola ("Sweetheart"), and Vinny Guadagnino. All of them are frequently hilarious, and are presented as being stereotypical "guidos."
