Jersey Shore : Then & Now

Poutlings, Happy Wednesday!

Jersey Shore Cast


A classic family shot… in a hot tub.

So, like I’ve said before, I watched this mind numbing show for about 20 minutes and then it finished. Thank god. I cannot watch it, but I stumbled across these pictures of the cast before they were in fact the cast of Jersey Shore.

All I saw when watching was a bunch of douche bags, fighting about who hooked up with who and what when how and blah blah. Like the K-Klan but a hell of a lot worse – yup… WORSE.

Okay, maybe you’re even more clueless than I am, to what this show is about… So here is an extract from wikipedia, because that website has all the answers:

Jersey Shore is an American reality television series that premiered on MTV on December 3, 2009 in the United States. The series follows the lives of eight housemates spending their summer at the Jersey Shore in the U.S. state of New Jersey. Season 2 followed the cast escaping the cold northeast winter to Miami Beach, with Season 3 returning to the Jersey Shore. The fourth season, filmed in Italy, premiered on August 4, 2011. MTV confirmed in June 2011 that Season 5 will return to Seaside Heights. The show debuted amid large amounts of controversy regarding the use of the words “Guido/Guidette,” portrayals of Italian-American stereotypes, and scrutiny from locals because the cast members were not residents of the area.  Dubbed a cultural phenomenon, the series has garnered record ratings for MTV, making it the network’s most viewed series telecast ever. The series’ cast has also been credited with introducing unique lexicon and phrases into American popular culture. The University of Chicago and the University of Oklahoma are among the educational institutions that have had classes or conferences about the show. In 2010, the cast of Jersey Shore was named on Barbara Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People list, and the series has since been exported to dozens of countries worldwide. It has been announced that the show will return on January 5, 2012 for season 5.

With all of that being said, lets get back to the original reason for my post! The pictures of the young pre cast stars. I unfortunately couldn’t find pictures of all the cast but have included them in the NOW which are the casts promo pictures for season 4 which has recently shown in the states, I don’t know if its broadcasted in South Africa yet, nor do I really give a damn! 🙂

Just like Sandylashxx’s previous posts about then & now, here is the THEN & NOW for Jersey Shore cast. Some have got worse, others stayed the same and some have got a lot better!


THEN: Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Final Year of Highschool


A pre-pouf Snooki poses for her senior portrait at Marlboro High School in Marlboro, New York, 2006


Varsity cheerleading captain Snooki obviously got her big mouth from all those cheers, she does talk and shout… a lot. As that was all she did in the episode I watched, oh, and hooked up with some random guy in a club. Classy…

 I bet bespecalled Snooki hates the fact that this picture made it onto the internet…

THEN: Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Highschool


Jenni “JWoww” Farley poses for her sophomore portrait at Columbia High School in East Greenbush, New York, 2001.

NOW: JWoww Rides Again


She’s come a long way, right? Straddle that fake pony, love.

NOW: Snooki in Italy


Snooki and her heels in Florence, Italy, for season 4 of Jersey Shore. In the episode I had the disfortune of watching she did not look this glamorous at all, so maybe the show has gotten better? I don’t know. But she looks fabulous here. Have to give credit where it is due.

NOW: JWoww in Italy


JWoww hits the streets of Florence, Italy, for season 4.

NOW: Deena in Italy

Deena mugs for the camera in Florence.

NOW: Sammi in Italy

Sammi steps out in Florence, Italy, during season 4 of Jersey Shore.


THEN: Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Final Year of Highschool


The bowtie before the bowtie? The Situation’s hair enjoys a more relaxed style back in 1999′s senior portrait for Manalapan High School in Manalapan, New Jersey.

THEN: Young Vinny Guadagnino


Young Vinny was such a card. I  don’t really doubt for any minute that he still is. ha ha.

NOW: The Situation in Italy


Italy, has a situation, all right. RUN ITALIANS…. RUN WHILE YOU CAN!!

NOW: Vinny in Italy

 Hopefully he’ll get some fashion sense from the real Italians… hmm…. Thats an unrealistic expectation!

NOW: Ronnie Ortiz-Magro

Doesn’t he have a face you’d just like to smack??

Just doing a little photo session before a night of “creepin’.”

Watch the hair!

Peace out Pouters!

  1. I’m not sure if they actually look better, but they just have more money. So they can buy more expensive stuff. Snookie looked better in school. Did you ever watch Kideo? She looks just like Timothy Traddle! xx

  2. I’m loving season 4 to be honest, never saw the old ones tho 🙂
