The Jersey Shore Kids Get Uppity

Cast-of-jersey-shore_405x420 The cast has until COB today to accept MTV's offer for the second season, but are collectively holding out for more money and vowing to stand together Musketeers-style. MTV is all: Whatever.

MTV offered the trashy troupe $10,000 signing bonuses and $5,000 per episode, 12 episodes total. The cast rejected that offer and apparently told the network that they would ALL walk unless the offer was upped. MTV came back with $10,000 an episode, but the cast still hasn't responded, and its unknown if the new offer meets whatever expectations the cast had.

But it seems like they have bought into their own hype a little more than MTV has, because MTV claims to already have replacements lined up for any cast member who refuses the deal. What, are they saying that Snooki and The Situation are not uber-unique one-of-a-kind snowflakes in a blizzard of low-rent fameballs? That's cold, MTV.

There is no one on that show who isn't entirely replaceable and forgettable. Silly kids.

Snarky Amber

Like there aren't boatloads of guidos and guidettes in Jersey who would do it for a tenth that price. They are ALL replaceable.

How much were these clowns making at the boardwalk t-shirt hut/tanning salons?

To borrow from Jon Lovitz in A League of Their Own "well, $130,000 would be more than that, now wouldn't it?" Plus any $ from public appearances/US Weeklies or whatever else the limelight gets the reality Mensa candidiates.

I think they see themselves as the cast from Friends - and even THEY didn't pull this move until what - the 5th season or so?

Sweetney

Yeah, I'm thinking it should be NO PROBLEM for Mtv to find a bunch more lunatics in Jersey for people to point and laugh at. phhhbbbt.

Suzy Q

I've never seen this show, but just from the cast picture, I can tell that all of them would be very easily replaceable. They could switch casts with any of a number of equally stupid shows and no one would notice.

iambellaluna

Agreed.

Snarky Amber

P.S., If MTV wants to foot the bill for our airfare, booze and food, I think the writers of MamaPop would be happy to go stay in a shore house for a few weeks and have our antics taped for television, PRO BONO.
