Probably the biggest drama in a (relatively) tame Jersey Shore Season 4 finale came in the form of The Situation and his status for the upcoming Season 5.
After a brief pity party, Mike obviously announced he'd be back in Seaside.
Luckily, MTV has released already released a three-and-a-half-minute sneak peek of the fifth season to hold you over until the bleak midwinter premiere.
Pauly D and the gang had a blast, but didn't get to tan much in Italy. Well, upon returning to the U.S., he went into GTL overdrive ... with sizzling results:
"I got no tan in Italy so I got a little excited. I went tanning in Jersey - tanning, tanning, tanning. I burnt my whole face off. I shocked my system, bro."
At least his blowout and bromance with Vinny appear to have survived.
The clip also makes it quite clear that the Jersey Shore cast wasted little time getting back into the routine, which means crazy nights out at Karma.
Deena may not be ready to do sex, but seeing Snooki dressed to kill makes JWoww want to bend that ass over and ... well, just watch the preview!
Jersey Shore Season Five premieres Thursday, February 9, 2012. MTV has ordered 13 episodes, airing from that date until May 10, 2012.
