You might have read that cast members of MTV’s Jersey Shore are asking for $10,000 per episode to do season 2. So maybe MTV will be looking for new guidos and guidettes to populate their unaccountably popular “reality” series. Do you have what it takes?
You can see tonight from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. by competing in a Jersey Shore pageant at Sidebar at 120 E 15th St. (in Manhattan) in six categories:
Best Blow Out
Best Poof
Best Fake Tan
Best Six-Pack
Best Fist Pump
Jersey Shore Cast Look-a-Like Contest.

“People can hate all they want, but what can you say about a guy that looks pretty much like Rambo with his shirt off” – The Situation
“I wanna pound out every girl in Seaside.” – Ronnie
“I feel like this is beneath me. I’m a bartender. I do great things.” -Angelina “Jolie”
“It only takes nine pounds of pressure to break a nose.” -Pauly D
“Don’t bring dirty girls back.” – Angelina
“I don’t give a… if you’re fat, you’re ugly, you’re 45 years old, I’ll dance with you.” – Vinnie
“He has to be a juice head, you know, shootin’ up… big guy. That’s what I like!” – Snookie
“Tits are coming out tonight.” -JWOWW
“Back Home I’m the Princess of Poughkeepie” – Snookie
“We gotta get Purell in this house” – Vinnie

Update: Negotiations are reportedly concluded, and the cast of Jersey Shore will return for a second season, each of the eight cast members receiving $10,000 per episode, which would be flabbergasting in any other country. In any case, whoever won the Jersey Shore Cast Look-a-Like Contest at Sidebar will apparently have to wait at least another year.
