    The "Jersey Shore" Reboot Is Here And OMG The Cast Has Changed

    A lot can change in nine years.

    Y'all. Jersey Shore is finally back on TV, and if you're not watching it, I honestly feel bad for you.


    But a whole lot has changed in nine years! Here's what the cast looked like in the very first episode of Jersey Shore in 2009 — compared to what they look like in the reboot, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.


    1. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi


    She's married with two kids now, but that didn't stop her from being herself, getting drunk, and peeing in the pool in their very first episode back.

    2. Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino


    He's given up drinking and drugs and has a lovely girlfriend. Unfortunately, he's facing possible prison time for tax fraud.

    3. Jenni "JWOWW" Farley


    Just like Snooki, she's married with two kids. And she has pet fish!

    4. Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio


    He's rich AF from his DJing career, and lives in a big ol' mansion in Las Vegas. He also has a little daughter!

    5. Ronnie Ortiz-Magro


    His girlfriend just gave birth to his first kid — a baby girl named Ariana.

    6. Vinny Guadagnino


    He's all about fitness now — which means when he drunkenly orders pizza, he just scrapes off the toppings and eats that ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

    7. Deena Cortese


    Deena wasn't in the first two seasons of Jersey Shore, so on the left is a picture from *her* first episode in Season 3. She's now married, but waiting on kids for the time being!

    8. Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola

    Sadly, Sammi decided not to return for the reboot — so on the right, we have a recent picture from her Instagram. She's got a boyfriend and says she's over the Jersey Shore drama.

    9. Angelina Pivarnick


    Angelina isn't a regular cast member on the reboot, but she is slated to make a guest appearance. She was last seen on VH1's Couples Therapy.

    10. And finally, the duck phone.


    Yup, they definitely swapped out the phone at some point, cuz those are TWO DIFFERENT DUCKS.
