August 30th, MTV announced the Jersey Shore would have one more season, and then it’s disappearing for good. The stars have completely changed since the first season of the reality series. New slang terms were created, new clothing trends and an obsession with ‘gym, tanning and laundry’ grew. So what came out of the show? Despite the controversial antics of the Jersey party animals, there has been some good things. There have also been a lot of train wrecks.
So here’s a rundown of the good, the bad, and the incredibly ugly:
The stars have made commitments. Nicole Polizzi (commonly known as ‘Snooki’) recently gave birth to a baby boy with her longtime boyfriend. She is also engaged to him, showing her new-found maturity. Snooki has a long list of immature antics, but maybe she has finally grown up!
Paul DelVecchio (also known as ‘Pauly D’) has made a career outside of the Jersey Shore as a professional DJ. Pauly D is now one of the highest paid DJ’s in the world. Jersey Shore definitely aided in getting his talents out to the world. He briefly had his own television show on MTV revealing his path to DJ stardom.
The Bad and the Ugly
Mike Sorrentino (also known as ‘the Situation’) has a drug problem. He’s been in an our of rehab, since he abuses prescription drugs. The Situation is not one of the favored Jersey Shore cast members, and is often seen as the bad guy.
The cast members have horrible reputations overall. They have had their fair share arrests, public fights, backstabbing, drug use, car accidents, and drunk antics. They are nowhere near being role models for any younger viewer. The guys flaunt their womanizing lives by bringing tons of random girls home, while the girls are constantly puffing on cigarettes and revealing themselves. As a matter of fact, some companies have even paid the cast members not to promote their company. Abercrombie and Fitch was one of the main companies offering the Situation and other cast members money so they wouldn’t wear their clothes.
Without a doubt, a couple of years down the road, most of the cast will die off into the ‘has been’ crowd. Right now, they are rich and young, but most of them will probably blow their money and end up in rehab multiple times. Other cast members will continue to use their reputation as an entrepreneurial building block to continue on the road of success. Where do you think each of the cast members will end up?
