I have to admit, when I first tuned to watch the first season of Jersey Shore, I was thinking, “Why would MTV put eight oompa loompas in a show?” Those guys are such meat heads, while the girls look so skanky! Even if they’re just going to the market to buy groceries, they looked like they’re dressed to go to the club. But after watching a few episodes, let me tell ya – I am hooked!
I don’t want to become like the people from Jersey Shore, but I watch it because of the entertainment value. Here are my six reasons of why I like (not love – well not yet anyway) watching the Jersey Shore.
1. It gives you a brain vacay.
I completely agree with Marc Jacobs that when watching this reality show, you get a “brain vacation.” Some of my favorite shows are House M.D., drama television shows from various Chinese channels. But the last thing I want to do is “work my brain” into following the plotlines. I want my brain to not think after a long, hard day’s of work. And what better show to do that than the Jersey Shore. I literally feel like I’m turning off my brain when I’m watching it (yes – I see this as a good thing)!
2. Snooki is hilarious.
Sometimes I laugh with her, and most of the time, I laugh at her. She’s like the Chilean version of Jessica Simpson because what she says can be so funny. This scene was when she couldn’t find a date and decided to have her own fun on the boardwalk. She was just dancing and she did give out some good advice (no, not the crotch part) – that you shouldn’t care what others think of you. I think I’ll start by dressing differently and not dancing on the boardwalk, though.
No – I don’t think Ed Hardy will ever be trendy!
3. The show makes you feel better about your own fashion.
I probably don’t need to elaborate on this. Whatever you’re wearing now (even if it’s just pajamas), it is far better than what they wear on the show! I sometimes think, “Wow, I’m glad I wear underwear when I go to the clubs. Wouldn’t want my private parts flashing around!”
My armpit may be sweating – but I don’t care, I’m fist pumping!
4. Lastly, I now know how to do the “fist pump.”
Not that I would do it in public – but it’s a nice move to switch to when you run out of dance moves at the club! If this animated picture doesn’t help you understand the fist pump – there’s a guide for ya gals and guys! Turns out there are FOUR versions of the fist pump.
Do you think my reasons are valid? What are your reasons (if any) for watching Jersey Shore?
