As seen in the trailer for the upcoming season of MTV's Jersey Shore, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino puts it best: "We're back in our habitat!" You'll no doubt remember that he and the rest of the cast -- Deena, J-Woww, DJ Pauly D, Ronnie, Sammi, Snooki and Vinny -- spent last season in Florence, Italy, fulfilling their role as the worst-ever ambassadors for America. Season 5, which premieres Thursday, Jan. 5, at 10 p.m. ET, marks their triumphant return to Seaside Heights, N.J. What sorts of shenanigans do they have in store for us next season? Take a look!
There's the requisite shot of the gang doing shots. And fist pumping and brawling. And Snooki peeing in a bush. ("There's all the bathrooms is taken!," she cries.) And Snooki being taken away in handcuffs.
There are some new elements, too. Someone in a bunny suit is humping one of the guys. There's a prank involving crabs, which has nothing to do with an STD. And there is tension between Snooki and The Situation, which involves a milk splashing fight and a secret about Snooki's boyfriend Jionni. "This is Hurricane Situation," says Sorrentino. "And it's headed straight for Snooki Island."
Based on the sneak peek that MTV released in October, we've already seen an overshadowing of foul weather ahead for that relationship. Snooki shows off a pair of booty shorts with Jionni's name on them, only to be reminded by J-Woww that he reacted badly the last time she mooned the whole club.
In that sneak peek we also learned what the expression "Pauly D Problems" means: "I got no tan in Italy, so I got a little excited…I burnt my whole face off…Our GTL endurance is not up. I shocked the system, bro."
Viewers will also find out what went down with Vinny, the aspiring actor/rapper who took a break from the Shore house early in the season. Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly has just reported on a project that will surely be a treat for his fans. He's starring in a Syfy movie called Jersey Shore Shark Attack.
But most of all, the upcoming season will demonstrate the bond of friendship and support among this gang. Consider, if you will, a tender moment between BFFs Snooki and J-Woww. Hoping to look hot for her return to their favorite nightclub, Snooki pushes up her boobs and asks her pal, "Would you bang me?"
"Bent over and sideways," replies J-Woww. Awww!
