Re: Jersey Shore Season 2: Taking their Talents to South Beach

Matt,
They have 8 weeks of footage to create 12 or so episodes. The show was/is successful because the characters are clowns it is guido minstrely. Watching them constantly succeed is not going to be appealing to a large chunk of the audience.

let me ask you this, do you really believe that a good-looking guy like the situation who is pretty damn famous and has hung out with people like leo is going home by himself every night? cmon.
I totally agree that its wierd they wouldnt be hooking up, I think i said that already.

there was that one episode where they had guaranteed sex but deemed the girls to ugly. It is possible i suppose that they have such big egos that they are being to picky.

Im not saying your wrong, but I havent really seen the "extreme length" to cover their famous status, i mean it seems like they get a lot of attention in the ice cream shops and the clubs they attend.

If you are right though, i think the producers are stupid for thinking we would wanna see ronnie and sammi drama and editing out the cast taking advantage of the perks of their fifteen minutes of fame and sexing up miami women, which is obv more exciting than seeing the same exact bad ronnie and sammi storylines each episode over and over again.

I don't think they get all the "hot girl" action some of you think. Look at what Ronnie's always creepin on. The Sitch and Pauly have been seen talkin to their share of zoo creatures as well. And the girls? What the hell is up with them? Are they giving bj's in the bathrooms or what?! I never see them hookin' up! And I SERIOUSLY doubt it's all due to editing. Naaah!

He was in that club really late ( it was 6am when they came home that night) so he probably started drinking by 11pm which means he was drinking for 7 hours. Long time to be drinking.

Some dumbasses had ketamine by the case in the 90s when I was in college before it became illegal. After watching them ingest just a few tiny lines with no alcohol there is no way someone who is ****faced drunk could do K and live unless it was cut to death. They would do two little lines and half of them couldn't move or open their eyes without getting sick or throwing up. Guess that's why they call it the k-hole.

Is K the stuff that juicers take that basically makes you f'd up like alcohol but once you sleep it off you feel fine w/o a hangover? I worked w/ a guy that took steriods years ago and he was always telling me about this awesome drug.

Apparently juicers like it because they get f'd up w/o having to drink which are extra calories.

No that's GHB (i think). Ketamine is used in vet hospitals for subhuman primates and animals. It's a dissociative drug that slows your body down with each line or injection you take. Doing it while drinking is a huge no no.

While low doses of Ketamine can increase heart-rate, at higher doses it depresses consciousness and breathing and is extremely dangerous to combine with downers like alcohol, Valium or GHB.

Ketamine is 'magic drug' for depression
telegraph.co.uk A single dose of the drug Ketamine acts like "magic" lifting people out of depression in hours and lasting more than a week, scientists claim.

Yea I think he was taking K because he was a body builder and never wanted to gain weight other than muscle. He never drank if we went out. He always talked about how the stuff he was taking was used to knock horses out. He would also drive w/ it because he claimed that there was no drug test for it. If he got pulled over and he was acting f'd up, he would pass a blood test for alcohol. This was all in the late '90's.

It's taken by a lot of bb'ers because steroids, particularly oral steroids, are very hard on the liver. If you take steroids and drink, you are stressing your liver in a very unhealthy way. Steroids alone usually push liver values to borderline high, to add alcohol is trouble. It isn't about the weight in general.

GHB is more popular in that crowd from my experience, but if they are taking ketamine, that's why.

Re: Jersey Shore Season 2: Taking their Talents to South Beach

to everyone saying that none of the cast mates hook up with people

go back to the previous episode, when the guys/angelina come back from the club and see all the smashed plates. angelina is holding hands with a random guy, you can see him for 2 seconds. MTV probably tells him to wait in the other room while there is home drama going on, then lets him and angelina have their fun

Ya remember in season 1 during that second fight when Ronnie got arrested. The scenes leading up to it you can see they are all walking with a bunch of people that never get introduced as part of the show. We would never see them except for the fight went down which is too valuable not to show. Honestly most people in their 20's (at least ones who frequent these clubs) would probably recognize them and there is no way its not super easy for any of them to get laid whenever they want.

I think anybody who doesn't think that Ronnie is the most likely candidate to be on cocaine is insane.

Yeah and i feel like they're still doing a bad job of making everything seamless. Like the scene where sammi goes after the cab as its pulling off with Ronnie inside, then it stops 10 feet down the road so the bodyguard/camera man can get in and she doesn't acknowledge that the car is right there to go after again. Or Snooki and JWOWW sitting eating with security clearly sitting with them so they dont get disturbed. Or when they're playing pool there was clearly a huge crowd of people standing around watching them filming. There also seems to be cameras shown in almost every single scene. Basically, they've taken a lot of the realism out of this reality tv show.

Re: Jersey Shore Season 2: Taking their Talents to South Beach

Sammi is so so so horrible. Of course I don't feel sorry for her--wtf she's not being beaten or anything. Everything is either her fault or indirectly her fault since she can end it in 3 seconds by just dumping Ronnie.

Plus she's not much to go after. She has no jugs at all in a house that is overflowing with them. Her face isn't bad but certainly not wowwing. She's guaranteed to have really bad cellulite in 2 years if she doesn't already (which she assuredly does). Plus I don't think she's been in a single scene on this show where she isn't being a ***** or talking about her relationships. Has she ever said anything funny? WTF would you possibly want to be in a relationship with her--all you would ever talk about is the status of your relationship. She's a ****ing idiot.

Recap: Not smart, not funny, zero personality except a penchant for whining, and not really that hot. I know Ronnie is trash, but he's made out with some flashbangs better than her.

most of the people they get with probably dont sign the release forms. Seems like what most smart people would do seeing how randos were treated in the first season.
