Jersey Shore season six premiered in America on MTV on October the twelfth 2012. The music channel had already announced that this was to be the last season of Jersey Shore and its documentary style reality TV show about eight perma-tanned party animals. Their hard-partying shenanigans are set against the backdrop of a shared house in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
The eight immature housemates originally hit the small screen for MTV audiences on December 3rd 2009. The house-mates have also performed on vacation in Florence, Italy in addition to Miami. Anywhere they happen, the intoxicated incidents, feuds, frolics and fights are certain to be captured on camera.
These four orange-skinned girls and four muscle-bound guys have made a total of seventy-one episodes; each lasting forty-two minutes. The idea for this “loud, young, bold” program was developed by SallyAnn Salsano for MTV. Her experiences of similar summer house shares nudged her in this particular direction. The hilarity is created by the dysfunctional, showboating cast.
Initially, the cast constituted of Michael (aka “The Situation“) Sorrentino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Paul DelVecchio (also known by the pseudonym of “Pauly D” in the blossoming career as a DJ that his growing celebrity status has helped), Vinny Guadagnino, Nicole (“Snooki“) Polizzi, Jennifer (“JWoww”) Farley, Sam (“Sweetheart”) Giancola, and Angelina Pivarnick. After the conclusion of the second season, Nicole Cortese took the place of Angelina. As you possibly will assume from their names, quite a few of the house-mates are of Italian-American extraction.
This Italian background prompted the stars to proclaim themselves to be “guidos and guidettes“. The exploitation of these expressions has caused controversy because the Italian-American community consider the terms to be ethnic slurs. A number of organizations decided to cancel their advertising over these concerns.
Thirty-five remote-controlled cameras in fixed locations, twelve hand-held cameras, six DV cameras and one IMX camera capture the cast’s every move. This format quickly built a following which peaked at an audience figure of 8.87million in season three. Ratings remained strong but were falling before the announcement that series six would be the last.
Snooki being heavy with child, spin-off endeavours for such stars of the show as Farley, DelVecchio and Polizzi, in addition to Guadagnino’s talk show venture are alleged to be amongst the complications which inclined MTV’s executives towards the assessment that it was time for the program to be terminated. Snooki above all has projected the image of a pint-sized trouble-maker. DVDs of all six series are currently available.
This ‘out of this world’ show has been such a phenomenal success, that when Jersey Shore season six was aired, its stars enjoyed lucrative personal endorsements for goods like fragrances, sunglasses, energy drinks and slippers. Products like Halloween outfits, beach game kits, a diverse variety of clothing, and even bobble-headed talking dolls of the characters are on sale. The music video promoting “I Like It”, Enrique Iglesias’ hit track also features all 8 cast members of this great show.
