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

1. Vinnie - great week for him, he seems determined to be more of a personality this year (maybe after hearing about Sitch making $5m/year between seasons), good for him!
2. The Situation - quiet this week, but whatever, usually brings it
3. Pauly D - not getting the love on him, sure he's making some ok jokes, but he's been in the background a lot (like Vinnie last year)

[Angelina-style wide gap]

4. Angelina - she sucks as a person, but is making some interesting TV
5. Snickers - is funny too, intentionally or otherwise
6. JWoww - needs more fights or something
7. Ronnie - ditto, hate Ronnie when he's with Debbie Downer

[another huge gap]

8. Sammi - boring idiot with basically no redeeming qualities (other than being kinda hot, personality makes her a real-life 1 though, and an OOT -10)

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

oh, and anyone else notice how they cut together than scene where Vinnie and Angelina were fighting in the living room? scene starts with Vinnie laying on the chair with some white slippers on talking about Angelina or whatever, cuts to her/others, then he's wearing some dark coloured shoes, then the slippers or white socks again, then the shoes again, back-and-forth, back-and-forth...

helped confirm my suspicions about how this show is cut together like all the rest of them. i mean i was wondering last week with The Situation and that girl, when he took time to eat and have a smoke, etc before getting with her, then sending her out to the taxi. obviously they wanted us to think it all happened in that order, and over an hour or two period maybe, but i highly doubt that.

if i cared more i'd point out some other examples, maybe someone smarter (one of our resident TV experts) or better at watching TV wants to take a shot...

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

of course this show is heavily edited, just like every other MTV "reality" show.

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

i wouldn't limit it to MTV. i think every "reality" TV show is created, literally, in the same manner. just kinda sucks that they don't think it's interesting enough on its own that they have to cut & paste to manufacture a watchable show.

yeah, I think they started heavily editing these shows around real world 5 or 6 or something, in order to generate better ratings and it has carried over to every reality show they do. Other stations do the same. Thats why I've stopped being overly judgmental of people on these shows since we never see anything remotely close to their real personality. We just see what makes for good TV. However, even with all the editing, there does seem to be a fairly clear poor image of sammi, ronny, and angelina.

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

lol, vinny shows up one day and all of a sudden he's on top of the rankings? for what, talking **** to angelina (which everyone does)? banging a hot girl (which is not rare for the other guys)? banging snookie (puke)? banging angelina (.....)?

i mean, at least he's making the final cut these days, but he's still a very distant 3rd iyam. he gets laid on his own and he's a cult hero.

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

Just pointing out again that there is a giant difference between editing to make things appear one way and the producers actually telling them to do stuff and arranging it. It's like 95%/5%.

And there is just as much effort if not more that goes into casting than the actual production. It's not really a luckbox.

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

God Sammie is a pathetic ***** and the Sitch is right, Ronnie makes her look stupid and all her hate gets directed at JWOWW and Snooki which makes no sense and Ron comes out squeaky clean. Oh and Angelina needs to *****.

Vinny with an All-Star performance - and that chick he banged frome the club was HOT.

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

Vinnie should be getting no love considering he's hooked up with Snooki and then really initiated the hooking up with Angelina given that he dogged her so much. I mean, I'd bang Angelina too, but he looks pretty stupid given all the **** he talked before hand.

I actually think Ronnie is moving up the rankings, mostly by default I suppose and Sammi was pretty funny since I hate Jenni.

I probably go:

1. Situation
2. Pauly D
3. Ronnie
4. Vinnie
5. Sammi
6. Angelina
7. Snooki
8. Jenni

Untouchable, that's pretty aggressive putting Sammi ahead of anyone, much less three other people.

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

I don't get why you guys think Vinnie is the man and Ronnie is a chump. Ronnie bangs two chicks every night. First he bangs some random slut then he bangs Sammie. Then the midget girl writes a letter to Sammi and Ronnie is busted. except he's not. Sammi loves him more than ever and Ronnie can go back to being Ronnie.

Vinnie on the other hand, by all accounts, needs serious wingman help to get laid. Then, since he can't find a chick at the club he bangs the biggest slut in the eastern time zone that he happens to live with. That is the very definition of low hanging fruit. and you clowns think he's the man.

By any objective standard you have to put Ronnie above Vinnie in any power ranking.

Is there any evidence whatsoever that Ronnie has does anything more than make out with a few random sluts the first couple of nights when he was technically "single" anyway?

It seems like the big issue is that he kissed some skanks and motor-boated a waitress, even the stupid letter lists this as his most egregious transgression. Its actually a little weird how much of a big deal everyone on the show is making out of it if this is all he did.

Did I miss the part where they show Ronnie getting it in with some strange?

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

Well according to most in the house Vinnie hooked up the most in Season 1, but managed to keep it away from the cameras.

Also Sammi going on about how she is ready to fight anytime now was tilting. She got a decent shot in and now thinks shes Tyson, it was clear that she was in trouble until Ronnie stepped in and others held JWOWW. She even yelled at Ronnie "So you gonna hold me so your girl can get some shots in?" Plus seems like Ronnie is unstable enough to hit a girl.

Sammi though reminds me of the Mir vs Lesnar 1 luckbox, and the aftermath of trash talk that came from Mir.

3. Vinnie ("You're more like the Rob Kardashian of Staten Island, you ugly *****!" then he hits it, Vinnie was epic in this episode.)
3. Situation (Kind of a quiet week, but I liked "Mother****er, Santa Claus is dead")













4. Ronnie (Needs to stop being boring and punch someone)
5. Snooki
6. Angelina
7. Sammi (Never thought she would get out of the cellar)
8. Jwoww (Never thought she would get INTO the cellar, but I can't stand her anymore)
When people do this I usually assume they are just talking about their power rankings for that particular episode -- surely people aren't claiming someone else is #1 besides situation in the power rankings collectively for both seasons in terms of added value to the show? Just wondering since other comments people are seemingly interpreting it as though peoples power rankings are now for their overall order from both seasons.

Yeah, this is all also very results oriented too because its dependent on what MTV actually decides to show. Anyone that thinks Pauly D and Situation aren't (at least now) pulling girls hotter than what Vinny pulled are rather naive. But yeah, Vinny's now finally contributing to the show something... good for him, still not ahead of pauly/sitch.

Yeah but most people basically put Ronnie near the bottom just through default association with Sammie. All the value he adds to the show is outweigh'd by all the arguing and scenes with Sammi.

no i dont think it was cut like that, he was wearing black sweatpants, white socks and sneakers, and it started with him wearing the sneakers but he took em off and ended with him just wearing socks. atleast i think. btw the kicks he was wearing were the zoom kobe V chaos
