Basically Jersey Shore is a reality show about a group of twentysomething Americans living together in a beach home in New Jersey. The cast members are people generally referred to as "Guidos" and "Guidettes" which are Americans of Italian descent who try to look preppy and rich. They are stereotypically depicted as having bad attitudes, dark fake tans, hair that has way too much product in it, and they practically live at night clubs. The women all have fake boobs and the men are all steroid freaks who live at the gym.
For this show, MTV assembled a group of the most stereotypical Guidos/Guidettes to live together under one roof in a beach house for the summer under the stipulation that they work part time jobs at a local T-shirt/souvenir shop. As long as they can hold down that part time job they stay on the show. Throughout the show, their stupidity and need to always party/get laid/get drunk puts them in compromising situations that make you lose all respect for them as human beings.
Here are the cast members:
Angelina - Drama queen. Not much is seen about her since she gets kicked off the show only a few episodes in. All you get to learn about her in the short time she's on the show is that she's got a bad attitude.
Mike "The Situation" - A womanizing jerk who truly honestly believes that he can get any woman into bed at any time. He is disrespectful to others and a backstabber to his friends.
Ronnie - A steroid-abusing bodybuilder with a hot head who's always getting into fights.
Pauly D - One of the only semi-respectable ones of the bunch, he's a DJ who lives for his hobby. He doesn't really mingle with the other cast members and doesn't get involved in much drama over the course of the show.
Nicole "Snooki" - A girl with no self respect who lets everyone walk all over her. She spends most of the show getting drunk, crying, and acting like a skank.
Jenn "Jwoww" - Hypocritical, quick to judge others when she makes the same mistake herself. She spends half the show talking on the phone with her long distance boyfriend who she claims she loves, trying to hide the fact that she cheats on him.
Vinny - The dude with no backbone. He seems nice enough and respectable enough but lets everyone walk all over him and, for the most part, stays out of drama, like Pauly.
Sammi "Sweetheart" - She is the poster child for every stereotypical bad thing about American teenage girls, only not a teenager. She goes through more mood swings than you can shake a stick at and is second only to Angelina in being a drama queen.
Most Americans and even people from NJ are not like this. For this show, MTV simply picked the worst of the worst of an ethnic/racial stereotype and lumped them together for laughs.2
