Wow we have been so caught up in the world of Geordie Shore we had kind of forgotten about the original Jersey Shore. Over the weekend rumours were flying about that the cast are apparently to be replaced by some newbies for the next series of Jersey Shore much to the disgust and outrage of many fans of the show.
The cast members; The Situation, Snooki, J-Woww, Pauly D, Vinnie, Sammi, Ronnie and Deena were reportedly going to get the boot as a result of their ever growing demands and salaries. Aww don’t do it MTV the reason the show is a hit is because of the cast! They have just not long finished filming the fourth series of Jersey Shore in Italy and have definitely caused quite a stir with the locals. It wasn’t surprising to hear the cast had been fighting in the street, chatting up locals and getting into trouble with the police.
Jersey Shore had provided a much needed boost to MTV’s ratings which is why they then caved in to demands made by the cast which sees them raking in up to $100,000 each per episode. Yes, you read that right, $100,000 to be filmed partying hard with your friends and living in a luxury house. Poor things, what a hard life.
So where would the show be without the over-the-top and hilarious characters like Mike ‘The Situation’ and of course Nicole aka ‘Snooki’? I think it would be a huge mistake to axe the original cast as the replacements would probably be poorer versions and wannabe’s of the current cast. That is what normally happens when a replacement cast are introduced on shows like this and it’s no fun to watch. Although we could so without Sammi and Ronnie’s painful constant arguing!
Oh MTV please don’t replace them, it wouldn’t be the same without them!!!
