Here’s the Problem: It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a reality show hit like Jersey Shore – the drama, the controversy, the lingo. Now that I think of it – I haven’t been so immersed in a docu-drama since Real Housewives of NJ. There’s just something about that state… Anyway, it’s obvious that MTV is going to want to bring back their shining star for another season – but how? They could never get another cast with the same je ne sais quoi as this year’s. Also, they can’t really bring this cast back to Seaside. Jersey doesn’t forget. These colors don’t run. And all that other shit that means to say if these out-of-towners reinfect the same town next summer they will not be able to walk down the boardwalk without the papz, fist clenched locals, and exterminator trucks close behind.
Actual Problem: There are suggestions to bring the cast to another locale. Maybe Point Pleasant or Belmar still on the Jersey Shore (too classy for this clan). Or the Hamptons or a SoCal beach (it’s one thing to take a fish out of water, it’s another thing to bring a fish to the Louvre). My suggestion? They have to go to another country. I’m sure there’s an Italian or Greek equivalent to The Shore. And once that season is over, we send them to some trashy hot spot on the moon. And then we kill them, because after season 3 they will be of no use to us.
