The Jersey Shore continually promotes the use of alcohol. Since the arrival of Jersey Shore into our entertainment outlet, viewers have taken it upon themselves to incorporate alcohol when viewing the show. The Jersey Shore Drinking Game (Season 1 and 2) is a game that is frequently played by college viewers. The rules of the game include taking a “drink” when a cast member does or wears specific things. For example, players are supposed to drink when someone uses the word ‘guido’ or ‘guidette’, when I guy has no shirt on, when someone is wearing Ed Hardy, or when Mike refers to himself as ‘The Situation’. Attached is a list of rules to follow when playing this game. (PC)

According to, studies show that as many as 96% of American teenagers say that they have been emotionally and/or psychologically abused by a dating partner. Jersey Shore may help to perpetrate this idea. Viewers may think it's ok. (AP)

LESSON PLAN iDEA: Ask the students to map out the different relationships that they have. They can mention family relationships, friendships, relationships with teachers, etc. After they make a map of their relationships, they should talk about the way that they act in these different relationships that they have. In other words, explain how they act differently with their teachers than they do with their friends. This can lead to a discussion about how students have to act differently depending on the different relationships that they are engaged in. (Kelsey)

Although shows like Jersey Shore promote sex, still education for safe sex. (A.D.)

Although Snooki does not embody morals, she does show some want for a monogamist relationship (A.D.) - "My ultimate dream is to move to Jersey, find a nice, juiced, hot, tan guy and live my life."

Stereotypes (H.P.)

The "Guido" as a now commonly-known/talked about specific type of person(CW)

The way they dress and act, what they enjoy doing, how they take care of themselves, how they talk and the vocabulary/slang they use (CW) other stereotypes in the Unites States can have a huge impact on people today. The characters in Jersey Shore show how stereotypes can have a strong effect on how people are portrayed. (Meghan Mason)

Boys seem to be held to high standards in the media, just like girls are. Sometimes, the stereotpye for men can be tough to live up to. In Jersey Shore, the characters are portrayed as strong, cool, and persuasive men. The pressure for boys to be like this is probably becoming more of an issue. The link below gives some other common stereotypes with men today. (Meghan Mason)

Even though, Jersey Shore does portray many stereotypes, it fails to include certain groups of people like homosexual people, which makes it seem that these type of people cannot have a good time. (MB)

Culture (KB)

Even though "Guido" is listed as a stereotype, the cast of Jersey Shore is extremely proud of where they come from. They are constantly referencing their Italian culture and heritage and talking about their customs. This might be one of the show's better qualities because it shows people that they should be proud of where they come from because that is what made them who they are. (KB)

Jersey Shore is one of the dominant forces in pop culture right now. (MH)

The Guido culture is the next "it" thing and a lifestyle. To them, "the Ten Commandments would be GTL (Gym, Tan, Laundry). This is the daily schedule of the guido, the mundane routine. But at night they come out to play at night clubs where the juice is flowing. This is the guido in his prime, fist pumping to anything the DJ is spinning. " Article from (MH)

Reality Television

Jersey Shore has become a new faze in television in general (MB)

People have a " a hunger to watch people with no discernible talent, no discernible insights, but who are willing, eager to be seen and heard doing . . . nothing" (MB)(

reality television began with Survivor and has now expanded to include about 1/4 of shows on primetime (MB). These reality shows have a large effect on how students view "real" life.

My lesson plan is looking at popular culture today in comparison to popular culture in the past. What has changed what is the same. Finding pictures of ways people have compared old popular culture to present day such as the Mona Lisa picture can show young children things like the Ipod have not always been around. (A.W)

distorted reality

After watching shows like Jersey Shore, kids and teens may assume that life revolves around drinking and sex. (MB)

In Jersey Shore, the participants work at a ice cream shop, which may give viewers the false impression that from that job, they have enough money to party each night. (MB)
