18 Times The Jersey Shore Was the Height of Reality TV

By  | 


If you're an avid watcher of terrible reality TV, there's probably a big hole in your heart where The Jersey Shore used to be. As much as you may hate to admit it, there was nothing more entertaining than seeing what new kinds of debauchery the cast got up to every week. Who knew that putting seven Italian-American twentysomethings in a house, getting them belligerently drunk every night and seeing what happens would be the formula for one of the most popular shows of all time. It was reality TV *magic*.

Not only do you end up kind of loving the cast members despite yourself, it's kind of comforting to see people who have their lives together even less than you do. Seriously, watch The Jersey Shore when you're recovering from a particularly wild night out, and suddenly every embarrassing moment and questionable decision you made won't seem so bad.

So, whether you didn't watch the Shore and want to know what you were missing out on (a lot, tbh), or you're a super-fan feeling nostalgic AF, we've compiled 18 of the best moments from The Jersey Shore, solidifying its place as the height of reality television.
