S5E9: Week after week, Jersey Shore bestows its viewers with an hour of non-stop ridiculousness that, much like a car wreck, we just can’t look away from. Amusing: yes. Suspenseful: no. However, this episode actually proved to be downright riveting, thanks to The Situation’s unrelenting urge to meddle. (That’s right, The Situation causes a situation). Call him annoying if you want, but you have to admit the show just wouldn’t be the same without him. Don’t worry though, the rest of the gang had many eye roll-inducing moments to contribute as well.
Angelina Makes A Cameo
You know that person from high school who keeps popping up in your life even though you were never that thrilled about them in the first place? Well Angelina is kind of like that for these guys. Vinny and Pauly D run into the ex-Jersey Shore housemate at a club and it’s sufficiently awkward, which is surprising. You’d think with all the one night stands these guys have had over the years, they’d know how to handle uncomfortable situations.
Mike Tips a Delivery Guy With Protein Powder
Being the genuinely nice guy that he is, Mike decides to order breakfast for the entire house – his treat. However, when the delivery guy arrives, he realizes he doesn’t have any cash to tip him with. So after checking with his equally cash-less housemates, he decides to pay the poor guy by giving him a packet of protein powder. Shockingly, the guy didn’t seem all that thrilled by the gesture. Some people are just so greedy.
Vinny and Pauly D De-Smush The Smush Room
Vin and Pauly are a little frustrated that the house is becoming completely crowded with couples. So as a form of protest they hide the bed in the smush room, so it can’t be used for a couple’s retreat. Of course, they leave it outside, poorly covered by a sheet, so it doesn’t stay missing for long, but still you have to give them credit for thinking outside the box.
Sammi is Psychic
Now that Deena is showing a real interest in this guy Joey, Sammi feels it’s her right as a friend to voice her concerns about him. Crediting her apparent psychic powers, she tells Deena that Joey is just looking for a booty call, not a relationship. This makes Deena paranoid to point where she starts interrogating him at Karma. Needless to say, it doesn’t work out and Deena once again leaves the club empty handed. Perhaps Sammi is psychic after all. Just remember: with great power comes great responsibility.
The Situation Gives Jionni An Earful of Truth
For weeks and weeks Mike has been threatening to come clean with Jionni about the “situation” that went down between him and Snooki, but so far we’ve seen very little follow through…until now that is. But since Mike is known for his passive aggressive behavior, he tries to get The Unit to do his dirty work for him. However, The Unit gets arrested, which forces Mike to finally takes matters into his own hands: he asks to speak with Jionni in private back at the house. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until next week to see how it all goes down (groan). But hey, there’s always that one percent chance Jionni won’t be all that mad about the hook up.
So what did you think of tonight’s episode? Are you happy Jionni will finally know the truth or is The Situation going too far this time? How do you think Jionni will react? Sound off in the comments below or get at me on Twitter @KellyBean0415.
