'Jersey Shore' vs. 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' smackdown

" Jersey Shore" finally returns for its much ballyhooed sophomore season on MTV Thursday (July 29). We all know that the cast is juicing up Miami Beach this season and Angelina Pivarnick has returned. That's about all the changes you can expect from the crew.

After watching the season premiere, you'll find they're up to their usual tricks. And if you had any worries that the cast has played out their juiced up shtick, you can put those thoughts to bed right now. There's just enough dynamics going on between the new locale, Angelina's return and Ronnie Magro's split from Sammi Giancola to keep the house party going.

We at the Zap2it offices have always thought there was kinship between the "Jersey Shore" kids and Bravo's " The Real Housewives of New Jersey." It's almost like looking at a Garden State time machine, right? So, we decided to pit the shows against each other in a smackdown in several categories: the babes, the hunks, the fashion, the fights and more. Creep on over and see if you agree with us!
