'Jersey Shore Family Vacation': What Are Snooki, Pauly D and the Rest of the Gang up to Now?
Five years older—but hopefully not wiser!—the castmates from MTV’s reality phenomenon Jersey Shore (with the exception of Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and only a brief cameo from Angelina Pivarnick) reunite in Miami for another round of fist-pumping in the new follow-up series Jersey Shore Family Vacation.
Here’s a sneak peek at what the gang gets up to.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, 32
The soon-to-be dad is under instructions from his pregnant girlfriend, Jen Harley—not Sammi Sweetheart—to behave. “I have a reason to control myself,” he says. “I’m not that stupid.” Hmmm.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 30
Marriage and kids haven’t worn out the Garden State’s pint-size partier: She falls over on Night 1!
Prepare for more countdowns, interviews, and live performances.
Deena Nicole Cortese, 31
“I’m a little classier,” promises the married Cortese. She spends much of the premiere defending her pal—and MIA castmate—Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola.
Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, 37
“I’m living the life I’ve always wanted,” says Pauly D, now a successful DJ in Las Vegas. The single dad (he’s the only one not coupled up!) arrives ready to mingle.
Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, 32
Sporting new implants and a refreshed face, this married MILF still draws shade from Snooki for donning “grandma glasses” to hit the club.
Cabs are here!
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, 35
Clean, sober and dating his college sweetheart, Sorrentino is a changed man. The only snag: Tax-evasion charges that could threaten his sojourn.
Vinny Guadagnino, 30
“I’m super into nutrition,” says the New Yorker, who’s in a relationship and no longer lives with Mom. In Miami, he’s Pauly D’s wingman.
