'Jersey Shore' season 5 kicks off in January
This time, Snooki, "The Situation," JWOWW, Ronnie, Pauly, Vinnie, Sammi and Deena will be back on their home turf: Seaside Heights, N.J. Season 4 followed the kids to Florence, where they proceeded to learn almost nothing about Italian culture, but lots about Deena's bicuriousity and Mike's alleged extracurricular activities with Snooki.
Doubtless the crew -- and fans -- will be happy to see our favorite GTL-ers witihn walking distance of a good tanning salon and surrounded by flimsy paste-board walls much more suited to Situation head-ramming than Florence's age-old plaster. Also, we'll sleep easier at night knowing they can party at Karma and other favorite bars where it isn't a crime to flash your kooka (or wait -- it probably is) and Snooki and Deena won't get faux-assaulted with ice cubes.
Thankfully, MTV has released a preview clip centered around Pauly's tanning over-correction. He got so pale in Florence that, when he was back in range of a tanning bed, he "burned his face off." Oh, Pauly, you and your hyperbole!
To recap: Cabs are here Jan. 5.
