The cast of MTV's Jersey Shore has brought its GTL, bed-hopping, first-pumping antics to Miami's South Beach for Season 2, but that's just the beginning.

Lest you thought Seaside Heights, N.J., was a thing of the past, the gang will be returning to the Garden State - in the very same house - don't you worry.

They just got a jump on Season 2 in Miami because of the weather.

"Once the boardwalk heats back up, the series will return to the Jersey Shore to complete the season," MTV said, noting that the season starts July 29.

The Cast of Jersey Shore

All the lovable guidos and guidettes will beat up the beat again: Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Sammi Giancola, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Vinny Guadagnino.

Also returning? Angelina Pivarnick, a.k.a. the random girl who bailed after like one episode, and a.k.a. Kim Kardashian of Staten Island (self-proclaimed).

The network is also exploring adding new cast members to the second season or more likely the third season of the surprise reality hit. Filming dates in Seaside are July 1-September 19, so it looks like a third season is in the works.

"It's like a big family reunion," said Tony DiSanto, MTV's president of programming. "We couldn't be more excited that the whole group is together in Miami and that they'll be going back to Jersey when the sun heats up."

Also heating up? Tempers. MTV worries that more peeps will pick fights with Snooki, Ronnie and company just to get on TV (the stars will likely oblige).

The network has requested additional police presence for the cast. According to the Seaside Heights P.D., MTV wants 8-10 off-duty officers - their tab.

There's no mistaking the male Jersey Shore cast members, sporting matching black tank tops and officially putting the G in GTL in their new Miami digs this week.

Being filmed going to the gym during the day and getting bombed at night, whilst bringing home whatever trash bags they please. Talk about living the dream.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, and Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio worked out during filming for the show's second season.

Here's the gang strutting its 'roided-up stuff:

ALL SMILES: What's not to love about this lifestyle?

Their GTL dream may be fulfilled every morning, but one other change this season beyond the fact that Jersey Shore no longer takes place on the Jersey Shore:

No grenades.

That's right, only hot chicks will be allowed at the Jersey Shore house in South Beach. Good luck policing that when it's 4:10 a.m. and The Situation's creepin'.

Having just arrived in Miami for Season 2, the cast of Jersey Shore wasted little time before hitting up South Beach for their first night of partying this week.

J-Woww, Snooki, The Situation et al partied at a bar on Ocean Drive. They then headed to B.E.D., a trendy restaurant/club where patrons eat on large beds.

Perfect for The Situation, as that's where he's looking to end up at all times with whatever chick comes his way. Attractiveness is preferred, not required.

B.E.D. has been a mainstay of the South Beach scene for years and regularly attracts visiting celebrities ... or even the Jersey Shore cast for that matter.

The crew gets their stroll on before a night of partying.

The MTV band of self-proclaimed guidos arrived this week and moved into their new space on the south end of South Beach, just one block off the ocean.

The Situation has already been flashing his abs around town and everyone has already started their infamous tanning ... gym and laundry too of course.

J-Woww and The Situation hosted a party at South Beach’s Mansion nightclub last year and drew a huge crowd. Nothing like they'll be seeing this spring.

No word yet on whether they'll be getting any new roommates.

Never satisfied with the glorious status quo, the producers of MTV's Jersey Shore are looking to clone Snooki, The Situation, Pauly D, J-Woww and Co.

We're not talking spinoff style, either. Execs are thinking about bringing new faces into the fold and giving our favorite Garden State gang roommates!

It's unclear whether new peeps would be cast during Season 2, which is about to get underway, or for the already-planned third season of the show.

In any case, they clearly know what they're looking for. "Killer shades, awesome hair, bandanas and bling mean only one thing," the casting call reads.

"If you're a tanned, toned fist pumper who loves the shore, we want to hear from you! Do you dominate the gym, the dance floor and the bedroom? Prove it!"

Words fail us.

Da Jersey Shore Gang

MEAT THE CAST: MTV seeks new additions to its illustrious crew.

MTV wants nothing but "the proudest, loudest and wildest to carry on the legacy." That's right, they used the word legacy. And a prestigious one it is.

The casting folks also ask if you have a nickname or significant other (if so, hand over their name and phone number) and request that you give a breakdown of your day "from the moment you wake up to the moment you hit the sack."

The Situation could answer that in three letters: GTL.

You must be at least 21 and appear to be younger than 30. So be sure you get the necessary plastic surgery if need be. Oh, and "No haters allowed."

Not sure why they're concerned about that last part. If any haters be creepin' up on the boardwalk late nite, Ronnie will just knock them out anyway.

It's official. The cast of MTV's Jersey Shore has touched down in Miami.

Our condolences, Miami. For everyone else, let the fist pumping begin!

Here's a shot of the poignant reunion between Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Ronnie "Homophobic Roid Rage" Magro after touching down in the city ...

Poignant Reunion

GOOD TO BE BACK: It's been so long since the GTL days ...

The pair joined the rest of their castmates as they prepare to shoot the second season of Jersey Shore, which is now kind of a misnomer, as they're not even there.

Oh well. The Jersey Shore quotes should be just as good. Click to enlarge more photos of the gang arriving and getting ready to take South Beach by storm ...

Jersey Shore only aired 10 episodes this winter, but that was enough to lure in millions of fans, make celebrities of the cast and introduce plenty of new vocabulary words, slang terminology and acronyms into the pop culture lexicon.

Case in point: The lovely Katy Perry was seen headed from the gym to Fred Segal's in W. Hollywood over the weekend wearing a shirt proclaiming simply GTL.

GTL, for those unfamiliar with Jersey Shore quotes, stands for Gym, Tan, Laundry. As in the daily routine of some of the Garden State guidos we grew to love.

While Vinny Guadagnino said that he prefers BPB (basketball, pool, beach), he was sadly outnumbered among the male cast members, and the term stuck.

Here's Katy giving props to DJ Pauly D and The Situation:

GTL

GTL: Katy Perry knocked off the first part, but somehow we don't imagine she went tanning after this photo was taken. Laundry? Maybe. Stay tuned for more updates.

MTV is taking Jersey Shore abroad, hoping that international viewers will tune in to see The Situation chase broads and be as captivated as we are.

The network is promoting the shore lifestyle - at least the lifestyle on the show, which stoked local anger - in a new ads called “Get Jersey Shored.”

MTV executives say they believe that despite Jersey Shore quotes not making sense elsewhere, the "Jersey Shore narrative" is universally appealing.

One of the overseas print ads for the show sums it up: “Muscles + gel + tanning bed = sex.” They left out laundry, right Pauly D? Still, point taken.

Jersey Shore Goes Abroad

Is the rest of the planet ready for Jersey Shore?

With the campaign, MTV is testing whether Jersey Shore truly has global appeal. If it does, there’s obviously a tremendous amount of money to be made there.

Jersey Shore premiered in the U.S. last December, and “seems likely to be a consensus choice for most appalling show of 2009,” The New York Times wrote.

Now the show will make its debut on MTV’s international channels. The network will also sell the show to third-party syndicators beginning next month.

Season Two is coming to an unnamed city that's likely Miami soon.

Who knew Ronnie and J-Woww could even read? Not us, but both Jersey Shore stars apparently signed a book deal! - and talk about a page-turner!

Never Fall In Love At the Jersey Shore, a Guido's guide to how to maintain the oh-so distinctive Jersey Shore look and attitude, brought to you by two of the show’s degenerate houseguests, J-Woww and Ronnie, is due out sometime this year.

And you wonder by the publishing industry is in decline. Then again, Lauren Conrad wrote a New York Times best-seller, so you never know, right?

  • Ronnie (Jersey Shore)
  • JWOWW Picture

Ronnie and J-Woww: Soon-to-be authors.

For reasons very much unclear, St. Martin’s Press enlisted Jenni Farley and Ronnie Magro to break down Shore living. We assume that includes a guide to:

  • GTL (Gym, Tanning, Laundry)
  • FHTB (Feverish Hot Tub Boinking)
  • FGFB (Flaunting Giant Fake Boobs)
  • BUEFN (Breaking Up Every F*$kin' Night)
  • GABTCAMGSAGIFWRJOTB (Getting Arrested By The Cops After Making Gay Slurs and Getting in Fights with Random Jackasses on the Boardwalk)

No doubt the advice will be something to cherish for life.

Jersey Shore Season Two is ready for takeoff.

Literally. MTV has instructed their rag tag band of juiced up meatheads and mediocre skanks to pack their stuff and prepare to defame an unnamed new city.

Camera crews will apparently start paying visits to the homes of Snooki, The Situation, DJ Pauly D, Ronnie, Vinny, Jwoww, and Sammi this coming weekend.

The network is attempting to get footage of them all as they attempt to cram tanning beds, industrial strength cans of gel and Ed Hardy shirts into carry-ons.

The Cast of Jersey Shore

WARNING: These people may be headed to a beach near you. Pack now.

The Jersey Shore cast is supposed to fly out to Season 2's mystery location some time next week ... where will they be creepin' on, exactly? It's a bit unclear.

All indications are that it will be Miami's South Beach, which is really the only logical destination, although this has not officially been confirmed by the network.

We could see that ... unlike, say, Jersey Shore: Cape Cod.

Also no word yet on whether Angelina Pivarnick made the cut and was asked to come along, or if anyone besides us even knows who Angelina Pivarnick is.

The Jersey Shore cast just screams high fashion, doesn't it?

Somehow, the Ed Hardy-wearing, fake-tanned likes of J-Woww, Snooki, and Sammi and their tight "going out" top glory are featured in Harper's Bazaar.

In related news, The Situation will be guest-editing Vogue.

You have to give the girls credit for cleaning up nicely, though, even if Snookz can't pose for a picture without wearing that ridiculous grin (or something).

Classy Jersey Girls

DOLLS: The women of Jersey Shore get classy.

Perhaps J-Woww summed up the experience best on Twitter: “Harper Bizaar shoot in 6 hrs and can’t sleep :( ... Omg to the Harper’s Bazaar Shoot. Prior to the show I never purchased one mag/ now I’m in a lot of em! I buy 10 a wk! They’re addicting!”

So true.

All three of the ladies shown above will appear in the magazine, and at least for their standards, they look (dare we say it) pretty classy in the process.

J-Woww nude in Playboy, it ain't!
