Along with Ronnie’s Xenadrine spot and Snooki’s ad for pistachios, last night’s episode of “Jersey Shore” featured another cast member’s foray into advertising: Pauly D, who now has a Miracle Whip commercial.
The fact that Pauly reinforces his dislike for the product several times throughout the commercial isn’t the only reason I’m tripping over his endorsing a mayonnaise alternative.
I mean, it kind of makes sense that Ron would take an ultra-strength weight loss pill, what with those red shakes he’s always blending in the kitchen, and that Snooks would crack open nuts with her tanning bed, but I’m not sure about this one.
However, Pauly D can do no wrong. Who wouldn’t want to wake up to him yelling “Cabs are here”? Best. Alarm clock. Ever.
Last night’s episode began with Snooki kicking her smush-of-the-moment to the curb for being a bad big spoon, while Pauly, Deena and The Situation headed in to work. However, playing carnival games sounded like more fun than selling T-shirts, so they decided to do that instead.
After losing $100 playing one game in an attempt to win a gas-powered bike for Pauly’s birthday, Sitch decided to just give up and pay full price. Thank goodness for his high-paying job at the Shore Store.
The bike ended up being worth every penny, though, when it got Ron to smile for the first time since Sammi left the house.
Meanwhile, Snooki calls Roger’s friend Nick to confirm their date, but he doesn’t answer. She calls back 20 times, you know, just in case he didn’t hear his phone or something.
When JWoww calls Roger to see what his friend’s deal is, he says Nick isn’t interested in Snooki because she recently brought home two of his buddies, cousins Jianni and Jeff. At least they weren’t brothers, right?
Nobody in the “Jersey Shore” house was having much success on the phone this week. In a less-than-romantic gesture, Ronnie called Sam to tell her he didn’t appreciate her until he lost her. When she shuts him down, he tells her he doesn’t think they can ever be friends.
Speaking of Ron, we got to meet his dad this week. Is that what Ron will look like when he grows a mustache and ditches the Xenadrine?
In what may or may not have been a prank, Snooki and Deena stick marshmallows all over the house. Sitch thought it was a prank and thus ordered a taxi to take them to Times Square in New York City as a “surprise.”
This mini road trip was hilarious, but not because Snooki offered to show the cab driver her breasts, or because the girls didn’t notice they were leaving Jersey until they had… well, left Jersey.
It's because their cab driver, who should probably get his own reality show chauffeuring meatballs around Seaside Heights, was so funny.
When the girls questioned his route, he condescendingly replied, we had to go this way to avoid traffic.
But poor Sitch didn’t even have the last laugh. He took so long getting ready for dinner that the guys left him behind to break bread with his imaginary roommates.
“So Ronnie, why ya crying all the time?” he asks the empty table.
The boys return in food comas from the copious amounts of pasta they consumed at dinner. After Vin acknowledges that he’s a “Gluttonous piece of" you-know-what, the girls confront him and Pauly about The Situation’s prank.
Lucky for Pauly, he just has to say “I heard you guys are mad at me” in a funny voice and all is forgotten. I wonder if that would work for me.
The episode ends just as Sam gets back to the house. Everyone seems excited to see her, except Ron, who takes his mysterious red shake and makes a beeline for the patio. This should be interesting.
