The "Jersey Shore" cast made its way to the homeland
, taking up residence in a former bank building in Florence, Italy. Though the cast managed a few brawls
, fender benders
and bans from public places, Snooki, Pauly D, the Situation, JWOWW, Vinny, Deena, Sammi and Ron scored the largest audience ever
for an MTV series season premiere.
Snooki, who also spoke at Rutgers University
, JWOWW and Pauly D also scored themselves spin-offs
to their juggernaut reality series.
