Fist pumping in the homeland — Jersey Shore fans anticipate season 4 debut in Italy

Sam Brennan, Ads Manager

The stars of Jersey Shore are headed across the Atlantic to get their fist pump on in Italy for the show’s fourth season.

I love Jersey Shore. And I’m glad the production crew thought another change in venue from Seaside would be a good idea.

I just hope Jersey Shore doesn’t become The Hills — staying unscripted is key to the show’s success.

I understand the Jersey Shore can make Italian-Americans look bad.

On the other hand, it is just TV — a simple two-dimensional land where the cast exists.

I don’t walk away after an episode thinking, “Yeah, every single Italian-American in the world acts like that.”

Usually after an episode I think “Wow, that was outrageous. Now if they could get Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and Ronnie Rotiz-Magro to stop fighting, that would be great.”

I like watching Jersey Shore for one major reason: never once has a single cast member attempted to push a personal agenda.

Everyone on TV always has a bias.

But not on this show.

Not once has Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio told the audience how much he hates sub-prime mortgages and the negative effect they have on the economy.

Deena Cortese never talks about how impressed she is with the Egyptians’ protest against their so-called democratic leader.

They could care less about politics (unless it has to do with tanning).

After waking up around 3 p.m., MVP (Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Vinny Guadagnino and Pauly) dedicate themselves to one thing: GTL.

Gym, tan, laundry.

Around 11 p.m. they put their clean T-shirts on during ‘T-Shirt Time.’

The cabs arrive and they go to their favorite club, Karma.

They are constantly meeting new people and just having fun. You don’t see them excluding anyone.

Even when cranky, rude, Angelina Pivarnick was on the show they never left her out, even though they hated her. She was always invited to be with the group.

I’m not saying 24/7 partying is a good thing.

None of the cast should ever be considered a role model or a hero.

I’m saying that if you think Jersey Shore is offensive, you’re watching it for the wrong reasons.

Take away a lesson that it’s okay to live life in the here-and-now.

Sure they have some petty drama.

But it’s always resolved. The Jersey Shore cast lives life to the fullest, without a care.
