Jersey Shore: Meet The Cast

jersey-shore-mtv

“Mamma mia – here we go again!” With the season finales of The Hills and The City this week, a new “reality” show has washed ashore- Jersey Shore, to be exact. Well, Seaside Heights, Jersey to be even more exact. The show, which premiered last night, is about 8 guidos (for men & for women) living in a summer house. Their over the top personalities and their commonality as Italian-Americans make this show different, as they face the same drama that the other MTV reality show characters encounter with their personal lives, career, friends, and night life. The other difference is that they are all living under one roof, in comparison to The Hills where they often meet at birthday parties and over sushi. Eight strong personalities being filmed, all under one roof can only lead to one thing: drama. Sounds promising, right?

Well actually, the show has already created some controversy, even before airing, with Italian American communities across the country upset about the racism towards their kind. “What’s a matter for you!!!??” The cast members and those involved in the show have said that they are proud of their heritage and the show is not in any way supposed to be racist. In case you missed the two-hour season premiere, here is an introduction to the housemates. Catch up next week!

Angelina “Jolie”

angelina-jersey-shore-mtv1

Age: 22
Hometown: Staten Island, New York
Relationship Status: She has a new boyfriend and intends on staying faithful–but who knows what the summer will bring.
More: If Angelina has something on her mind, it’ll be out of her mouth before you know it. She always has something to say and doesn’t care what anyone else thinks. The question is, how long will her housemates put up with it?

Jenni “J-Wow”

Age: 23
Hometown: Franklin Square, New York
Relationship Status: She may have a boyfriend, but down at the Jersey Shore all bets are off.
More: When Jenni walks into a bar, the guys yell “J-WOW!” Impulsive and spontaneous, Jenni is a party girl with zero self control. Wherever she goes, drama is sure to follow. But under her tough exterior there is a softer side which makes her the resident big sister.

Nicole “Snookie”

Age: 21
Hometown: Marlboro, New York
Relationship Status: Nicole is looking to meet the man of her dreams.
More: When she goes to the gym, she goes in full makeup, hoping to make a splash with all the toned men. Her height has been as much of a strength as it has been an obstacle, and it will color her summer at the Shore in a big way.

Sammy “Sweetheart”

Age: 22
Hometown: Hazlet, New Jersey
Relationship Status: Sammy has been a serial dater all her life, but she’s now single and loves every minute of it.
More: Her friends call her a sweetheart, but when it comes to guys she is a heartbreaker. Just ask Mike and Ronnie.

Mike “The Situation”

Age: 27
Hometown: Staten Island, New York
Relationship Status: Single.
More: Mike may have a sensitive side, but he has plenty of game to go with it. He knows what he wants from his summer at the Jersey Shore and is not going to let anything stop him from getting it–even his roommates. The way he sees it, he has the situation under control.

DJ Paulie D

Age: 28
Hometown: Johnston, Rhode Island (named after Levi)
Relationship Status: Single.
More: Paulie D is Rhode Island’s most well known DJ and keeps a tanning bed in his house. He orders gel by the case and does his hair twice a day–once in the morning and once before hitting the town. For Paulie D, cleanliness is close to godliness, so he is not sure how he’s going to handle living with roommates.

Ronnie

ronnie-jersey-shore-mtv

Age: 23
Hometown: Da Bronx, biatch
Relationship Status: Single – but I’ll take ’em.
More: Ronnie might find himself in a brawl or two, but he is a lover who just wants to have a good time. He comes into the house with one rule: Don’t fall in love at the Jersey Shore. But as the summer goes on, he finds rules are meant to be broken.

Vinnie

vinnie-jersey-shore-mtv

Age: 21
Hometown: Staten Island, New York
Relationship Status: Single
More: Vinnie is a self-confessed mama’s boy and natural entertainer. He knows how to get a laugh from everyone he meets. Having just turned 21, Vinnie has been waiting for this summer his whole life and is ready for a wild time with no boundaries.

    I was always told by the Senior Foreign Service Officers serving the Department of State that the Italians were the most stupid ethnic group in the world and that all they could use is there bodies. Well after watching Jersey Shore I see that they were in fact correct. America hits Rock Bottom. China,Russia,India and Iran focus on developing their minds. We fall they rise.

  • rhinny

  • Erica

    Pauly D and Vinnie, the most sexiest guys I have ever seen;) Two favorite gurlz J wow and Snookie:) At first I didn’t really like Deena but after all she is an awesome gurl, Mike uhh he’s okay but not a fan of him, Sammy and Ronnie are cool, but I can honestly say they were cute together but their not meant to be, all they do is fight, I have no hate towards either one of them, but the way they fight I think they should just be friends and date other people. The relationship they have is not gud, advise to Sammy move on and find someone u get along wit and Ronnie same to you. I love Jersey Shore:)))) Pauly D and Vinnie keep doin wut u guys do best and that is looking fine;)

  • nicole
