The 'Shore' starlet busts out in LA.
Fresh off of the plane from Italy, the Jersey Shore crew headed straight from the airport down to the lovely town of Seaside Heights — leaving no time for rest and all the time in the world for pure, instigated Jersey drama on the season five premiere. With plotlines crossing the Atlantic along with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and the rest of the gang, it was a swift transition from Florence to Seaside, and despite the cultural and historical learnings everyone soaked up in Italy (ha!), they were all thrilled to be back in America … and moreso, the meathead-filled stomping grounds of the Shore. And within minutes, the Snooki-Situation, um, situation, was playing out once again and innocent, lovable Vinny Guadagnino was at his breaking point. The entire cast was surprised with friends and family members at a happy hour, leaving Vinny homesick to the point of wanting to leave the show in his jetlagged daze. But beyond that, the real story in the premiere was Snooki’s reunion with boyfriend Jionni, and Sitch and his friend The Unit (yep, The Unit) looking to run some interference with their romance being rekindled.

According to Situation and Unit, there was a bit of a fling between Sitch and Snooki (that Unit watched while, uh, entertaining Snooki’s friend Ryder), and they’re holding that as their proverbial reality ace up the sleeve — leading to all sorts of tension, blackmail and drama that will surely play out as the season goes along. So … five seasons in, and here we are: What did you think of the Shore premiere? Vote in the poll above and sound off in the comments!
