The Situation’s Epic Freak Out On Jersey Shore

Wow. I was a bit nervous for him at first, but “The Situation” really stepped up the alpha to muscle man Ronnie, especially with the whole complete loss of control freak out thing. Notice that the dude actually half-drools half projectile-froths at one point.

I wonder how they feel, really. It must be out in the open between cast and crew: they’re circus acts. Much like The Real Housewives, the only reason the show exists is for us to gawk and feel reassured about our own lives, because, hey, we know we’re definitely not as idiotic as them.

Or is it left unsaid? Perhaps the knowledge is merely an undercurrent none of them are able to articulate – only feel, at times, as a nagging, vague sense of discomfort that something’s not right. This is doubtful, though.

Maybe the most reasonable guess is that they heavily fortify their own idiocy with repeated self and group affirmation. The millions of dollars MTV and other sponsors are giving them most likely provide much needed justification for being extreme douchebags and douchebaguettes as well.

Whatever’s the case, they’re still getting paid, and they’re still on air, so enjoy the freak show. TC mark

    These guys are all multimillionaires now, there’s no way the whole thing is not scripted. They’re just actors, it’s pro wrestling for a new generation

      In all seriousness, I love the show. Also, if you wanna kill a few minutes, go ‘like’ Jersey Shore on Facebook, and browse the comments on a typical post. You’ll be tickled.

        I thought I was the only one who found joy in those?


  • Cas

    If I had to live with Sam and Ronnie’s bullshit, I would freak out, too.

  • Kimx2030

    well, that was disappointing
    Now that he’s a multimillionaire, you would think he’d come up with some new cray cray freak-out,  something other than kicking out someone’s bed

  • FuncDegen

    The idea of this freak out had a lot of potential, and then shockingly, like every other MTV scene the “reality” of the freak out was a complete let down.

  • Gary McClelland

    it’s real. they’re just roidin’ out.

  • Jill

    Douchebaguettes is my new favorite word.

    lolz, thought catalog post with the words ‘epic freak out’ in the title. 

  • devin

    I feel like Ronnie is one of the creepiest people that I can think of. Like, half rapist with his weirdly dead eyes, and half complete ‘roided out psychopath. He would probably kill someone with his bare hands in a fit of rage and sort of snicker about it later. jesus

    the SITUATION’S freak out? ronnie is absolutely psycho!

  • Captain Obvious

    Why do people watch this shit willingly? I’d compare watching an entire episode of this to Chinese water torture…

    • Julian Galette

      Honestly, I watched Ancient Aliens and then Jersey Shore thursday night, pretty sure I lost half my gray matter.
