‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’s 25 Cringiest Moments
If there's one takeaway from Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, it's that nine years later, Snooki, Jenni, Mike, Ronnie, Pauly, Vinny, Deena and yes, even Angelina, can still make us cringe. And we mean criiiinge.
When it comes to secondhand embarrassment, Family Vacation truly is the gift that keeps on giving, from pants-pooping awkwardness to baby mama drama and sooo much immaturity. While some of the cast of Jersey Shore may have learned about adulthood and responsibility since the show first aired on MTV back in 2009, a few self-proclaimed guidos and guidettes still have a thing or two to learn about growing up. (We're looking at you Ronnie.)
Below, check out 25 totally cringe-worthy moments from the sensational revival.
After Ronnie, then in a relationship, brought home a group of women from the club, Snooki tried to foil his opportunity to cheat by doing everything in her power to make the women black out — rather than, you know, having Ronnie be responsible for his own actions.
In an attempt to get Deena out of the house so he and the the Jersey Shore men could have a boys weekend, they sort of endearingly bought her a plane ticket home to see her husband, but botched the surprise with a note made nonsensical by Ronnie's extremely poor grammar.
Snooki, who previously cheated on her now-husband with Vinny, repeatedly asked him to keep his distance out of concern that it would upset Jionni. Vinny, however, is apparently a 30-year-old man who doesn't understand boundaries or basic social cues, and kept getting obnoxiously close to her despite her explicit request to stop.
There are just certain lines you shouldn't cross, and Ronnie, though fully aware of what he was doing, ignored them outright.
Because somehow, in Vinny's mind, getting the numbers of two women who are definitely not his girlfriend is somehow better than just one.
One the one hand, it was the kind of fight you only have with someone you deeply love. On the other, third graders have have had arguments with more maturity and tact.
Including the next day, when he repeatedly insisted he had done nothing wrong. (He most certainly had).
When it comes to all things Sammi-related, Ronnie may want to heed the advice of a certain Disney princess.
That there even was a creepy Sammi doll says enough on its own.
We have secondhand embarrassment.
In the words of Sammi: STAHP.
“Nicole’s face has the price tag hanging off of it.”
For all the progress Mike has made, he apparently hasn't fully let go of his pot-stirring past.
But why would you keep talking about it? UM, HELLO!?
He literally told Jenni Mike said he wanted to throw a pie in her face as a prank because he was jealous of Mike's happy relationship. WTF?
Seriously, Rahn, stahp.
Behold, an adult man who refuses to accept responsibility for a single thing he does!
It literally looked the same.
We've got a situation.
What the hell is he saying, anyway?
Why did she agree to this?
A meatball's gotta do what a meatball's gotta do.
