The season premiere of Jersey Shore is right around the corner and with the new season comes a new cast member – party girl (and waitress) Deena Nicole Cortese – but will she be able to keep the show exciting?

Deena joins the cast as a replacement for Angelina, the Staten Island drama queen who loved to stir up trouble with her roommates during the first two seasons of the hit show.

Angelina may have been loathed in the cast house but she was great for entertainment – will Deena be able to provide the same level of drama and entertainment for viewers? Celebuzz has pieced together a side-by-side analysis of Deena and Angelina to see if the newest Shore chick will be able to compete with the former cast member.

Is Deena going to make Jersey Shore even more watchable? Check out our study guide.

Deena Nicole Cortese

Hometown: New Egypt, New York

Catchphrase: “I’m a party in a shot glass!”

Connection To Cast: Snooki’s BFF.

First Impression On The Cast: Aside from JWoWW and Snooks, the rest of the cast seems wary of the petite new spitfire. Sammi Sweetheart picks a fight with Deena within hours of moving in and Deena later gets naked in front of The Situation while the two are drunk.

Party Score: 9.5 out of 10. While she may be a little rough around the edges, Deena is ready to have a good time, even if it means embarrassing herself in front of the MTV cameras.

Drama Score: 6 out of 10. Deena gets picked on by a few cast members but her cheerful attitude quickly dispels any bad feelings.

Watch Deena sine in a preview of the third season of Jersey Shore.

Angelina Pivarnick

Hometown: Staten Island, New York.

Catchphrase: “Um, hello!”

Connection To Cast: Appeared in seasons one and two. Slept with Vinny and DJ Pauly D. Fought with pretty much everyone.

First Impression On The Cast: Angelina earned the nickname “Trash Bags” after she arrived at the Shore house with black garbage bags in lieu of luggage. A creative traveling alternative in a pinch but the other cast members mocked the bags relentlessly.

Party Score: 4 out of 10. Angelina loved to tag along when the cast would go out to clubs in the Jersey and Miami but she had a tendency to crush the good times vibes with her endless drama and petty fights.

Drama Score: 10 our of 10. Angelina loved to pick fights and stir up problems amongst her various roommates so it’s no surprise that she outshined everyone when it came to bringing the dramz.

Season three of Jersey Shore airs on Thursday, January 6 at 10/9 c. on MTV.
