Jersey Shore has already made headlines for being a highly controversial show. The reality show airs on MTV and examines eight Italian Americans living and vacationing on various Jersey Shore destinations, specifically Seaside Heights. Each cast member is required to work shifts at a local boardwalk t-shirt store and in return they can live in a local Shore residence. Any failure to comply with their store’s boss results in eviction from the house. Most of the show’s interaction is centered around house life and partying.
