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: 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.

The Jersey Shore cast is ready to take Miami.

But first it's off to L.A. for a press tour for Snooki, DJ Pauly D, The Situation, Vinny, Sammi and Ronnie. Are they ready for L.A.? Hells yeah these guidos are.

But is L.A. ready for them?

Doesn't look like it has much of a choice, but here's the cast of MTV's breakout hit, mugging for the cameras right after touching down at LAX Airport ...

Jersey Shore Cast in the House

DIRTY HALF-DOZEN: The Jersey Shore cast members arrive in a location where some people besides them are actually tan. Possibly from the sun, even. Novel concept.

The gang appears to be in fine, orange, Ed Hardy-wearing form. We can't wait to see where they turn up next ... actually we can, but will find out for you anyway.

Jersey Shore star Ronnie Magro has issued an apology for the homophobic rampage he went on during one of his many fights on the freshman MTV reality series.

The hothead gets in so many brawls, it's hard to even keep them straight. But after letting loose some gay slurs in one of the, Ronnie says he got carried away.

Ronnie and Sammi on Jersey Shore

Blaming the whole ordeal on "the heat of the moment," Ronnie says he's sorry for the disgusting rant in question, which was made public earlier this week.

Never-before-seen footage of his first Jersey Shore brawl leaked online, and made Ronnie look like an even bigger idiot than The Situation is a womanizer.

Before this, Ronnie Magro was one of the most likable Jersey Shore stars.

In the video, Ronnie can be heard calling a guy on the boardwalk a "f**king f**got" and a "f**king queer" right before he beats the hell out of him. What a class act.

Yesterday, Ronnie posted on Twitter: "I apologize to my fans, In the heat of the moment i said a lot of things i didnt mean and im very sorry... i love my creepy fans."

Maybe they'll still love him, but we've lost respect. Why those words are even in people's vocabulary in this day and age is beyond us. Wouldn't "a$$hole" suffice?

No word how Sammi Giancola reacted to Ronnie's apology, or if they are broken up or getting back together at this very minute. One can never be sure with them.

So much for being a "guidette."

Jersey Shore star Jenni Farley, a.k.a. JWoww, admitted on Fox's Strategy Room Tuesday that she and co-star Nicole Polizzi, a.k.a. Snooki, aren't even Italian.

She may be the "Guidette Princess of F*%king Poughkeepsie" (one of our favorite Jersey Shore quotes), but Snooki is predominantly of ... Chilean descent.

So f'ing weak. Now we don't want to see Snooki nude anymore. THG NOTE: We never did, nor can we see what the appeal is there. Sorry, Emilio Masella.

J-Woww says she personally is Spanish and Irish. Spain and Ireland are rolling in their collective graves, while Italians everywhere are rejoicing at this.

Snooki is not really Italian. Nor is she tall.

In truth, the ancestry of these idiots (or anyone) doesn't matter. They're all Americans and we watch because they're lovably trashy. But why promote it so falsely?

The MTV hit show was slammed by Italian-Americans for perpetuating "negative stereotypes," hyping up its "guidos" and "guidettes" in previews and interviews.

"If you replace Italian-Americans with any other ethnic group, would they use such a pejorative term to promote the show?" the president of one group posited.

Basically they bash Italians and aren't even Italians themselves. Classy.

Such a disappointment. We feel so used. At least we know Heidi Montag's plastic surgery is real ... though by definition her boobs, face, etc., are fake. Irony.
