Fist pumping at the club is not that much of a priority for the cast members of Jersey Shore this season. Ronnie Ortiz-Magro’s girlfriend situation is going downhill, Angelina’s surprise visit, all of this happening in crazy Las Vegas for the cast members to adventure and have fun with the Shore Family.

Jersey Shore Family vacation began their second season on Aug. 23 on MTV. After five years of Jersey Shore not being on air, this reality TV show started with their first season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation on April. 5. On this season the cast members consist of Mike Sorrentino, Nicole Polizzi (Snooki), DJ Pauly D, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Jennifer Farley (JWoww), Vinny Guadagnino, and Deena Cortese, who could not make it due to her pregnancy.

Lets just say Ortiz-Magro had been one of the cast members that has suffer the most, such as getting punched by Sammi Giancola, almost ending his relationship with his girlfriend, and getting in a verbal fight with a random guy at a pool party. This season is no exception of him with bad luck. Ortiz-Magro is being threatened by his girlfriend to take away his baby from him. This made the episode more intense and heart dropping when seeing Ortiz-Magro frustrated with his baby situation to the point where he called the cops on his girlfriend.

Angelina who? Angelina Pivarnick is not a pleasing person to see for the Shore family. Pivarnick has been hated by the crew since the beginnings of Jersey Shore. Especially with JWoww, Pivarnick and her were in a internet feud. When Snooki informed the house that she was arriving, it made me laugh due to the comments Guadagnino stated, “the hamster is in her cage” referring to Pivarnick. This drama feud made the episode entertaining to watch.

Having the Shore Family in Vegas adds a different vibe to the setting, since the viewers are used to seeing them on the east side. Being in Vegas the cast is doing fun activities, such as ziplining from a tall building. Also, throughout the episodes the cast goes to a restaurant and these clips are often my favorite part because they pick on one another and makes you want to laugh a couple of times.

Certain viewers have stated that it is not entertaining anymore because it repeats the same things, such as only drinking. However, I say that the family shore is not the same from five years ago because the cast members have their own families now and it makes the show have a different vibe, and it is even better because it adds to the exaggerated scenes.
