Jersey Shore is Way More Scripted and It’s Still Amazing

It’s time to start talking about Jersey Shore again shall we?  Now despite the fact that tons of reality shows these days aren’t really “real” persay, the reason I think so many people took to this particular show is because of A. How genuine the characters seemed and B.  This hilarious “Jersey/Guido” culture taking the world by storm.

No one knew how funny and entertaining this thing would be but from day one we were all smiling.  Hell we were even crying when we saw these people get emotional.  Essentially we’re talking the Real World but with meatheads and guidettes.   And isn’t that exactly what we want?  Yes.

But let’s talk about the new season and how much more scripted it is….

Ronnie and Sam

You gotta love how funny this is.  It’s a reality show?  I mean the cast members are well aware that this show is on TELEVISION hence everything that goes on will be on the air.  So why all the sneaking around?  Why film Ronnie kissing other girls?  Why have them give a shit?  You know the producers are like “Sam, you’re the bitch this season and you have to pretend to be all crazy and played out by Ronnie.  Ronnie, go get drunk and act like a moron.”  And yet I’m still entertained and still think it’s hilarious.


Her slap on Pauly might have been the fakest thing in the history of television.  You’ve gotta be kidding me.  And yet still, it’s entertaining.  It’s fun watching the girls fight.  It’s even more fun watching Pauly get worked up.

The Situation

Has anyone noticed he’s a good guy this season.  I mean save for the taking the shirt off and being cocky, what’s up with him keeping the peace all the time?  I don’t get it.  He’s bound to do something pretty bad at some point.  I’m just waiting for it to happen.


I remember hating how dumb she was in the first season and she kind of grew on you.  Now I’m just liking it period.


Producers to Jwow – “Just pretend like you’re going to get into a fight every single episode.”

As for the rest of the cast.  I don’t really care at this point until something happens.

Bottom line, the show is 100 times more fake this time around and yet it’s still more entertaining than all of reality TV.  How in the world are they doing a season 3?  It’s absolute high comedy to me.

  • Uh, how about Pauly loosing his SHIT when angelina slapped him? That was possibly one of the most hilarious reactions ever when she tried to grab his arm soon after that.

    Also the situation’s reactions to things are still the best aspect of the show

    • Madison

      Agreed – when Situation took off his sunglasses in amazement at Angelina’s denial of slapping Pauly…wow.

  • Melissa

    Sorry to be a bitch, but it’s ‘per se’ not ‘persay’.

  • Scoots McGee

    The reason The Situation is behaving himself is because of all the deals he has going on. I hear he will be making a guest appearance in some cop show, and I think he has a clothing line coming out, too. So, he needs to behave or lose those sweet opportunities.

    Thus marks the downfall of Unreality.

    Unless this article was meant in a satirical way, I fear for the future of this site.
    This show is nothing special to be honest. It’s just the flavor of the month with no redeeming value.

    I like myself some Operation: Repo, which is pretty mindless, but at least it has a special zest in it.
    Jersey Shore is vacant. No soul at all mang.

    I’ll remain in denial, thinking that this article is just a big joke.

    I think season 1 is scripted like 20% and the rest of the shit is real. They got paid like a few hundred bucks per episode but has to live like a few months in the house. that is why Angela didn’t even bother to work and quit (spoil brat loser that is not getting anywhere in life). Ron’s fight at the shore is definitely real as I do MMA and he used knee and proper shootdown techniques.

    After S1 things started to fake like 50%. S2 saw on youtube Angelina’s fight with snooki in the end is fake, Jwow socks was on and off due to editing.

    Just fin S3, in the end the Arni situation seems to be real or else all of them deserve a friking oscar, especially Sammi and mike, friking brilliant.

    i think the cast are free to create drama, the producer just merely give them a direction on where to go. Because seriously a lot of the stuff needed too much genius and hard work that even Steven Spielberg will have difficulty.
