16 Times The Cast Of 'Jersey Shore' Was Too Extra For This World

Diply 28 Mar 2018

Mark your calendars: a situation is about to go down on April 5th!

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation will premiere on MTV, and I have never been more excited about something in my life.

With many of the castmates now flourishing in adulthood — with careers, children, and committed relationships — we're expecting the reunion to be a bit different than the original. But then again, the gang is predictably unpredictable.

To celebrate the party of the century, I'm going to re-visit some of my favorite moments from Jersey Shore history.

1. When we found out Pauly D was related to Justin Bieber.

Pauly D's hair is essentially what made him famous on Jersey Shore. So I will never forget this moment when he ran out of hair gel and compared himself to the Biebs. You know, I can totally see the resemblance.

2. When Snooki proclaimed that "tan" was a race.

The cast is all about their GTL — that's gym, tan, laundry for you folks who don't follow Jersey Shore religiously — so I thought it was rather fitting that Snooki identifies as "tan." Apparently, she's even written that on a job application.

3. Anytime Snooki laid a Snooki-ism on us.

Honestly, the entire show could have been just Snooki-isms. Week to week, Snooki would look straight into the camera and blow our minds with a new saying or fact, just like the one below. You better believe I googled it.

4. When Pauly D first yelled those three beautiful words.

I will never forget the first time I heard Pauly D loudly shout, "Cabs are here." Reminds me of all the times I've gone out with friends and as usual, no one is ready to go, even though I've given them ample time to prepare. I feel you, Pauly D.

5. When the letter was written.

This was the letter to end all letters. JWoww and Snooki sent Sammi an anonymous note detailing all the shady things Ron had done behind her back. It was just the beginning of the couple's on-again-off-again relationship. Today, the letter is so iconic, you can buy in on a tapestry.

6. When The Situation proved just how extra he could be.

One night when Mike "The Situation" was ordering food for him and the crew, he didn't even bother giving them his real name. In his mind, he probably thought: "Bruh, The Situation needs no introduction!"

7. When Snooks got away.

Let's never forget the time Snooki got so drunk, she couldn't find the beach. Decked out in a trucker hat and lime green slippers, when she did find the beach, she fell down and got arrested. Tbh, this isn't too far off from one of my Saturday nights.

8. When the cast gave us the term, grenade.

Without Jersey Shore, incredible words and terms like smush or GTL would have never made it into my vocabulary. One particularly charming term? Grenade. Coined by the men of the house as a way to describe women they were not DTF.

9. When they put partying aside for their special family ritual.

Each and every Sunday, the famiglia would gather for a relaxing, hearty meal. With all of them growing up in Italian households, it was the one tradition that kept them bonded together through thick and thin.

10. When JWoww showed us what she was made of.

JWoww is a fighter! While blackout drunk in Atlantic City, she ended up punching The Situation in the face. He ended up calling her some pretty disgusting things in retaliation and tbh, I wish she had hit him again.

11. When Ronnie broke the first rule of the Jersey Shore.

Rahn, STAWP! If only you had listened to your own advice of never falling in love at the Jersey Shore. These words would come back to haunt him season after season in his super complicated relationship with Sammi Sweetheart.

12. Anytime Snooki got on the dance floor.

While she's forever a meatball, she's a meatball that can move. The former cheerleader was always breaking it down in the club. While the boys were fist pumping, she was jumping, backflipping, and splits-ing into our hearts (whether she was wearing underwear or not).

13. When we were graced with this bromance.

I never thought I would ship something as much as I would ship the relationship between Vinny and Pauly D. Over the course of the six seasons of Jersey Shore, their friendship was just so pure. May we all find the Vinny to our Pauly D.

14. When the boys introduced us to t-shirt time. 

Giphy | Giphy

I had never heard of the term prior to the show, but the ritualistic habit forever became a part of my life. For those who don't know, t-shirt time is the act of sitting shirtless or in a tank top in the living room before putting a shirt on.

15. When The Situation fought a wall.

When this episode aired, we all LOL'd at what happened. I thought for sure that Ronnie had beat the heck out of Mike. But nope, instead, he ran into a wall and ended up injuring himself, which obviously wasn't good because he couldn't GTL.

16. When the gang taught us this game changing move.

When you're feeling lost in the club, the answer is always to fist pump. With Jersey Shore coming back on the air, we can't wait to raise our fist in the air and seriously pump it up.
