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.


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.
