The Jersey Shore Takes Miami

In possibly the most highly anticipated season premiere in the depraved world that is reality television, Jersey Shore returned for a second season on MTV in July — well south of its roots. Cast members like Mike "the Situation" Sorrentino and Pauly D focused on smushing (hooking up) and fending off grenades (ugly women) and spent lots of time picking out T-shirts. The eight young, tanned and drunken housemates made sure to show Miami exactly just how Jersey Shore they are — fights, hot-tub trysts, club-hopping debauchery and the occasional touching moments of roommate love. And this season, Snooki did not get punched in the face. Instead, the main story lines involved Ronnie and Sammi's relationship drama and plenty of roommate bickering to tide us over until the premiere of Season 3, which will find the Situation, Pauly D, Vinny, Ronnie, Sammi, Snooki and JWoww back in Seaside Heights, N.J. — with a possible new castmate. Stay tuned.
