Snooki and the gang have yet to begin filming season four in Italy, but a group of eight tanned 18- to 26-year-olds are already wreaking havoc across the pond.
A new MTV UK series, “Geordie Shore,” was inspired by MTV’s mega-hit “Jersey Shore” and will premiere in the U.K. on May 24.
The reality show, which takes place in Newcastle (also located in the northeast - the northeast of England, that is) draws from all the bits that make “Jersey Shore” a ratings juggernaut: “shared bedrooms, a shag-pile outhouse for ‘special visitors’ and a hot tub.” (Sound familiar, “Shore” fans?)
The only difference is that lines such as “my biggest fear is getting wrinkles” and “I’ll never kiss anyone without a 6-pack" sound much more refined when spoken with a British accent.
Wouldn’t it be great if the two casts met up for a special “Jersey Shore” meets “Geordie Shore” episode?!
A girl can dream.
