MTV’s hit Jersey Shore just ended shooting its third season and the household full of Guidos and Guidettes popularity shows no sign of slowing down. The Jersey Shore cast consists of Angelina “Jolie” Pivarnick, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino and Deena Nicole Cortese. While all nine of the roommates have a claim to fame, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and Pauley D seem to be the breakout stars of the Guido and Guidette clan.
Snooki is famous for her hair “poof” and her drunken escapades. Although she was recently arrested for being a public nuisance, that has only helped her stardom. The Situation is most famous for his six-pack and booty calls but he was savvy enough to cast his net into other projects such as a stint on Dancing With The Stars and a rap album.
Pauley D is a cute, gel-obsessed DJ with from Rhode Island. Thanks to his new found stardom on Jersey Shore, he books gigs all over the country and placed 8th in the America’s Best DJ contest. J-Woww isn’t trying to stay in the background either. She is using her fame and considerable assets to tantalize in pictorial magazines like Playboy and Maxim. She also has her own lingerie inspired clothing (luoi an toan ban cong) line called ‘Filthy Couture’.
All of the cast members enjoy paid club appearances, an endless stream of hookup partners, music videos cameos and red carpet treatment. They’ve also inspired a variety of different Halloween costumes, masks and wigs. Many trick-or-treaters or party goers will be dressing up as their favorite Jersey Shore cast member this October 31st along with other popular celebs like Lady Gaga, Sarah Palin and Kate Gosselin!
