To the horror of MTV watchers everywhere, Jersey Shore replaced its entire cast for Season 3. At least thatâ€™s the latest scoop. Whatâ€™s confirmed is that all the members are holding out for a huge pay increase, and thereâ€™s almost no chance MTV is going to meet it. Check out the full story, with pictures and video below!
The second season, premiering shortly, will feature new additions to the original cast, but the third season may only have new members according to sources. The Situation and Pauly D are the two members leading the charge for the pay increase, but the group says theyâ€™ll stick together no matter what.
MTVâ€™s Jersey Shore replaced nobody for the second season because everyone gladly accepted their pay, which was a $10,000 signing bonus and $5,000 per episode, which amounts to $70,000 per season. When met with demands for a raise for season three, the network came back with $10,000 per episode ($130,000 per season) for each cast member. But to the shock of absolutely no body, the cast members valued themselves higher than that and are stubbornly sticking to their lofty demands.
If the stalemate sticks, MTV will be forced to re-cast the show with a whole new crew. That would be bad news for everybody except JWOWW, who â€ścried her eyes outâ€ť when the show was renewed for Season 2.
â€śShe doesn’t want to be on the show anymore [because] she isn’t friends with them.” Said a source close to JWOWW.
So itâ€™s a win-win for her! Apparently MTV is willing to accept any member who takes the pay offer, so we might see a couple of the more sensible crew back for 3, but odds are the hard headed Pauly D and The Situation will be gone for good.
