Jersey Shore wrapped up their last season on Thursday. And what a season it’s been. Full of fist-pumping, hook-ups, and actual creepiness.
I don’t know if anyone else noticed how creepy this season got, between the light hitting of women, the physical anger towards girls who weren’t down with hooking up with you and the weirdness of how celebrity has transformed the cast, Jersey Shore was weird watching. Not only was it weird watching – it’s gotten to a weird place of popularity in popular culture. So now the housemates didn’t clean anything up, they were mobbed wherever they went, and people were in awe of them. Not in a good way. Still, they steamrolled through Miami, bringing chaos with them, getting kicked out of prominent nightclubs – having sex with everything that moves and each other — and generally enjoying their celebrity.
But it can be argued that the next season will be even weirder. And I’m expecting it to get way weirder, because they’re at the point where their celebrity is the highest it can possibly be. Nobody from the show is going to go off and do anything spectacular.
The new season will start January 6th of the next year. Celebrate MTV’s runaway smash the way you should – by ringing in the new year with it.
