MTV UK creates 'Jersey Shore' across the pond

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.

    They need to send them all to another country, like the shores of Somalia! Maybe they'll get held captive and held for ransom. Then we just don't pay it. Problem solved, no more frickin' Jersey Shore losers!

    hopefully at least one country based on western civilization will survive the failed experiment called the u s. i doubt the so called progressives and govt employees will allow this to happen though. they would destroy the world to protect theor gs govt jobs.

    "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." Clearly, this writer has never heard a Geordie accent.

    Oh god, South Park's warning is coming true. Soon the whole world will be part of New Jersey.

    • not NJ

      that South park episode was ridiculous, hate to say it but none of the Jersey Shore cast are actually from the Jersey shore and I believe only one of them is even from NJ. The Jersey Shore crowd are from NY and they invade NJ each summer weekend. Some Jersey show mayors have even fought to keep that crowd out and people actually from NJ have as little to do with them as possible.
      And all the supposed "it's a Jersey thing" slang in that South Park episode? Nobody here has ever heard any of the terms before!
