Wow I can’t believe how big Jersey Shore has become! It’s like watching a train wreck, you don’t want to but you just can’t help yourself. MTV really hit the big time with this little reality series about a group of twenty-something year olds living together and partying it up (GTL – gym, tan, laundry) for the summer in Seaside Heights, NJ. Can you believe season one premiered in December 2009 to 1.37 million viewers and season 3 premiered in January 2011 with record ratings of 8.45 million viewers! It’s so popular that the cast of Jersey Shore made Barbara Walter’s “10 Most Fascinating People” list!
Because it’s such a huge hit with high school and religiously watched by college students, it’s no surprise that the stars of Jersey Shore were popular Halloween costumes last year. Snooki was the most popular by far! It’s an easy costume – lots of poof in the hair, lots of bronzer and a short skirt and you’re ready to go! Pauly D was also fun to portray with tons of hair gel and Ed Hardy t-shirt and jeans and you’ve got the look. You couldn’t have made up a better cast of characters for all the college students to dress up as for Halloween.
Season one and three were filmed at the Jersey Shore and season two was filmed in Miami, Florida. But wait, there’s still another season to come with the group heading to Italy for season four. Now that should be interesting! I don’t think we’ve heard the last of Snooki, JWoww, Sammi, Pauly D, the Situation, Ronnie and Vinny!
