Jersey Shore Season 4 to Shoot in Italy, Not Miami?

Categories: Reality Bites
Shortly after we survived the scourge of Jersey Shore's second season and the crew headed back home to Seaside Heights for their next string of drunken antics and silly fights, rumors started popping up that it was only a matter of time before they returned to Miami for season four. Well, now TMZ is reporting that the producers have ditched plans to shoot in Miami and are taking the cast all the way to Italy. We have deeply mixed feelings about this.

Update: MTV confirms the move.

On one hand, local filming is always good for the economy, and the show provided some exposure for our city (even if it wasn't to the greatest audience). Plus fears of Snooki and co were greatly exaggerated. I mean, was it really that bad having them in town?

A season in Italy doesn't seem like it will be all that fun. Only one cast member, Vinnie, is actually a full-blooded Italian. Hell, Snooki is actually a Latina. Plus these kids can barely speak proper English, let alone Italian.

Though, TMZ is often wrong, and we've heard rumors for a while that producers wanted to shoot in Italy, but only for a week or so. Like when MTV used to make its Real World casts head out on international trips.

If it does prove to be true, though, maybe Miami can work some sort of tourism deal with Italy to attract scared Italians who would travel anywhere to avoid Sammi and Ronnie and the like.

How would they talk to people in everyday life? How would they meet people while clubbing without first knowing how to greet them? It's so far away from America and it would screw up the whole pattern and plus it would be boring. Miami again would be way better.


Italy? Wow, I thought that Jersey Shore might take it to LA before they went to Italy. But I think it’ll be more than interesting to see how the people of Italy respond to this group of 8. The great majority of the people I work with are somewhat perturbed when I tell them I like Jersey Shore but I can’t help it! This show is the epitome of reality TV and entertainment. Actually, MTV and Jersey Shore are always at the top of the list. I recently purchased a 26" HD LCD and upgraded to DISH Network’s 722K. I never realized that there was such a difference between JWOWW and JWOWW in HD! Lol. Speaking as an employee, but more importantly a customer of DISH, if you haven’t upgraded to HD, I would recommend getting with the program. DISH Network offers MTV in HD and plenty others! (:


The cast for Jersey Shore Season 4 is back at it again, with a full 2011 season of mayhem. If you are looking to purchase a unique gift for your favorite Jersey Shore fan, you can buy them a grenade whistle. This horn makes the same exact noise, as the version that Vinny and DJ Pauly D use during the ritual of letting Seaside residents know that a grenade is around. The grenade whistle is similar to a vuvuzela, and makes the same noise.


Snooki is Chilean Italian (she looks like a mapuche)
