I'll start by agreeing 100% with #51. I work in a HS, and many of the kids actually do sort of look up to the JS clowns. The ultimate problem with reality TV is that it's not real at all. The producers contrive the situations and the "stars" ad lib through the scenarios... but their reactions are "guided" by the producers. (For the record, two friends of mine have been on reality shows.) So, what's worse than idolizing jerks? Idolizing jerks who are really just laughing at you laughing at them, while they fatten their pockets while you watch them do it. It's all about the money - which isn't wrong. I just shake my head when I see kids wanting to live the Jersey Shore life, when what they're seeing as "the life" is, to some degree, fiction.
Your stupid. 1. Being snookie, If I lived a life where the world thinks of me as some bitchy ass alcoholic whore as a person in my daily life then why would i be comfortable with it if i really wasnt? 2. I watched the show, I gave it a chance, I find Blue Planet on Discovery Channel more fascinating...
256, to your first point, two things: She's worrying about what people think about her as she cashes an episode's paycheck that looks like your or my yearly salary. Second, there really is no such thing as bad press. One of my reality show friends was the show's douchiest character, and the response he gets in public is largely positive, especially when they realize he's not much of a douche in real life.
Agree. She needs to grow up. And she shouldn't be watching Jersey Shore, either.
