MTV’s Jersey Shore is rapidly becoming America’s latest guilty pleasure – and not just for the cast’s liberal use of hair gel and use of borderline offensive terms.
For these addictively trashy twenty-somethings, it’s all about lookin’ good. Livin’ La Vida Guido may look like a joyride, but believe Pauly D, it takes some work.
“A guy from [the] Jersey Shore is a guy that is looking good, feeling confident, taking care of himself,” DJ Pauly D said of his now-infamous attire and hair.
“It takes me 25 minutes to get it right. Greatness takes time, and this hair right here is greatness. I have it down to a tee, but this is a process right here.”
You heard it here, folks. Greatness takes time.
Jersey Shore’s The Situation, J-WOWW, Snooki and Pauly D.
“At the end of the day, it’s not about Italians coming together, it’s about a lifestyle,” says Jenni Farley (aka “J-WOWW“) “We all live by a certain lifestyle.”
“It’s all about the hair, the makeup, the tans, being fit. It’s all preparation for the summer.” Seconds Snooki (aka “Nicole Pilozzi”): “I look good in anything!”
As for critics who bash the show’s Italian-American stereotyping, Mike Sorrentino (aka “The Situation“) asks that fans of Jersey Shore show a little patience.
“It’s only the first episode and we’re only seven days in, so you have to give us a chance,” says the Staten Island native. “You can’t judge a book by its cover.”
No but with this show, you can come pretty close. If you haven’t seen it, it’s exactly as bad as you think it is … but that doesn’t mean it’s not entertaining!
