'Jersey Shore' season premiere a 'blast in a glass'

My how things have changed since season one.

Last night we watched as Snooki and the gang hopped in their BMWs, Range Rovers and Cadillacs and headed toward Seaside Heights, New Jersey - where it all began in 2009.

After Angelina ducked out early (for the second time) in Miami, there was no chance of the “Staten Island Dump” returning for season three. Long story short: the role of most hated person in the house officially belongs to Sammi, who accepted the honor with open arms.

Sam and Ron, the first to arrive at the house, quickly nabbed the “best” room, which just so happened to have three beds in it. Thus making The Situation, the last to arrive, the most unfortunate third wheel in the history of third wheels.

Snooki showed up with her friend from home, Deena, a self-proclaimed “blast in a glass.”

And, like MTV taught us a long time ago, it’s best to get to know your new roommate over a few drinks and a little hot tub action.

In the hot tub, Deena and Vinny share a mild flirtation while Snooki stares in jealousy. It’s then that we find out just how much Snooki cares for Vinny. But, the gentleman he is, Vinny let Snooki down gently, telling her they couldn’t hook up because he didn’t want to potentially hurt her feelings. I knew he was a sensitive guy as soon as he brought out the purple shower caddy.

Back to the “Shore’s” newest addition…

Between using her "lost" cowboy hat as an excuse to lure Sitch to an empty bedroom and her undressing almost immediately upon arriving at the house, something tells me Deena is going to fit in just fine.

“I’m just like a walking holiday,” she says at the dinner table.

“If Deena was a holiday she’d be Thanksgiving,” Sitch says in the confessional. Hmmm…We'll let you figure out why.

But, to Deena’s dismay - what with her two-month long dry spell and all - nothing happened between her and Sitch. That’s right, folks: The Situation turned down a living, breathing female. (Just one more reason season three is different so far.)

Of course, being rejected once didn't stop Deena from trying to crawl into bed with a fake-sleeping Sitch moments later. This charade, which eventually leads to the first fight of the season, causes Sammi to laugh at Deena's expense.

She’s not laughing at you, Sitch says in an attempt to neutralize the impending drama.

Yes I am, Sam responds. (Say what you want about the girl, but she's definitely not fake.)

After Deena storms downstairs and shares a few choice words with the rest of the crew regarding Ron and his girlfriend, the couple heads down to regulate.

The episode, of course, ends with the beginning of a Sammi-JWoww brawl and some fighting words from Snooki, including, “I will attack you like a squirrel monkey.”

What did you think of the season three premiere of “Jersey Shore”? Will you tune in again next week or has "Shore" jumped the... Snooki?

    Hey li girl...snooki went to school to be a vet tech...way different then a real veternarian. A vet tech is a glorified dog groomer. And last time u checked about the ruralness of nj or ny? Why would that be something u would check on? Have u ever been to nj? U know how many farms there are in nj. Nj is very rural.

    This show is horrible! I firmly believe that this show is a sign of The Last Days. The Bible itself says "there will be terrible times in the Last Days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money,boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God. Having a form of religion, but denying it's power- from people like this turn away."- 2Timothy 3:1-5. It's not just this show it's our entire culture. We have made what is bad into something good. Our culture is swiftly becoming just like that of Rome before that empire fell. We glorify evil on TV, the Internet, radio, and print. Just like Rome our culture is crumbling from within. The question I leave you is HOW FAR WILL OUR SOCIETY GO?

    Sorry to bust your bubble but for the most part the cast of Jersey Shore has an education. Snooki left college in her last semester of studying to be a veternarian to join the show. JWoww, Vinnie and Sam are college grads, Pauly is actually a DJ and Mike was a trainer & exotic dancer before the show.

    Definition of hick: an offensive term that deliberately insults somebody's rural residence or background and his or her intelligence and level of sophistication...last time I checked neiher NJ or NY were classifed as rural areas so check your insults first.

    As for the rest of you blasting the show...were you ever young once and had fun and acted a fool??? Geez...get over it. I'd like to see a video tape of your life. Maybe I'd get some sleep. *yawn*

      @ LongIslandGirl...Omg, had not heard that Mike (the situation) had been an exotic dancer prior to the show, but this makes total sense as his skin has that fake orange glow and he is all oiled up all the time and always like pulling his shirt up...lol. Can't imagine Snookie being a veterinarian? Are you sure about this?? I went to college with a girl who was studying to be a veterinarian and she was pretty sharp...it isn't all that different from being a doctor, there are a lot of math and science courses involved and you can't be getting trashed 7 nights a week and still be passing those type of classes. I bet it is more like she was studying to be a veterinary assistant, at one of those ITT tech schools or something.

      Cuz its not the show itself, the problem is there are people who really act like the jersey shore people act.... face it those tools arent actors theyre just being themselves and for people to act so stupid and ignorant and become famous for it shows that there is a serious problem with the culture in this country.

    Started watching and got caught up on this show near the end of Season One - mainly because I was curious about all the hype and the constant Love it / Hate it comments it generated. Became addicted immediately and won't miss an episode now. These people are hilarious! Don't worry about your own IQ dropping. Just get the popcorn ready, sit back and enjoy an hour of silliness.

    Why do people in this country wonder why the rest of the world HATES americans. It's because of this show (not just his show, but it's a good start). People see this show and think this is how amercans act, and they have every right to hate americans because of it. Hell, i see anything about these fools and I hate americans.

    Im still trying to figure out what makes idiots like this and their "scene" so appealing. People have been tanning, wearing fohawks, and fistpumping for a while before this show came out. But now the show brings more attention to it and almost legitimizes it. That scene doesnt need any attention. It should die out. Total sign of how braindead and stupid America is becoming.

    Most of them aren't from New Jersey. In fact I think only one of them (think its Sammi) is actually from the Garden State.

    The rest are from New York.

    As for this show, not enough bad things can be said about it.

    The fact that America has chosen to make these morons famous is just appalling.

    From what I’ve read on this page all of these jokers should be deported and not allowed to reproduce.

    I will definitely be tuning in for more Jersey Shore. "Blast in a glass" was just the tip of the iceberg for me. Sammi is definitely not use to being approached by anyone because she has Ron defending her all the time. I can't wait to see what else happens with them at the Shore.
