Jersey Shore Cast Reunites After 5 Years for Intellectual Discourse, Sandwiches

Considering the I.Q. of an average Jersey Shore cast member barely rivals that of a chicken sandwich, it’s only fitting that the MTV reality show’s latest reunion went down at a Burger King.

Nearly all of the usual suspects — Snooki, JWoww, Pauly D, The Situation, Sammi Sweethart, Vinny and Deena — appear in a new ad campaign for the fast food franchise’s new Chicken Parmesan Sandwich, though a few faces are conspicuously absent from the festivities. (I can’t say I’m surprised by the lack of Angelina, but was Ronnie really too busy to show up to this? He did know there were free sandwiches at stake, yes?)

Anyway, the menu at Burger King may be evolving, but you’ll be happy — or not, I don’t know your life — to hear that not much has changed in terms of the Jersey Shore crew’s dynamic. Vinny still gets treated like the little brother, The Situation still prefers soft buns, and Pauly D is still a mysteriously ageless DJ.

I’ll admit, it was a little surprising to learn that The Situation is trying to have a baby with his girlfriend — but less so when he referred to it was having “recently pulled the goalie.” Classic Sitch.

UPDATE: The cast of Jersey Shore will reunite again for E!’s Reunion Road Trip, a docuseries that will reunite a different cast of a scripted or unscripted series each week. The Jersey Shore crew (this time with Ronnie!) will serve as the series’ pilot.
