Reasons Why Jersey Shore Is (& Always Will Be) My Guilty Pleasure Show
Y’all, I’m not even ashamed to mention that Jersey Shore is my guilty pleasure show… through and through. I’ve been watching it since I was a senior in high school, when Season 2 was airing. I so desperately wanted to watch Sammi and JWoww beat the crap out of each other, but I had no idea what was going on, so I spent some time catching up. And then when Season 3 was airing when I was a freshman in college, I would repeatedly sit out in the dorm lobby watching episodes. It’s one of those shows that’s just so trashy that I can’t stop watching it. But why? Well, boys and girls, not like I have to defend myself, but I’ll go ahead and list the reasons why!
It’s Just Funny
Look, watching everyone get drunk and pick fights is just hilarious. You think that these fights are so minuscule but when you’re drunk, small things seem like the end of the world. It’s just fun to watch s*** hit the fan, I’m not going to lie.
It Gives Me A Kick In The Butt
Let me explain… they may drink on the daily and get in fights four times a day… but they know how to nail down a routine. Watching them live their lives by going to the gym, eating healthy, and keeping up on laundry… it weirdly makes me want to get my s*** together. I usually get on a health kick and go to the grocery store after that.
Sometimes, there’s good music in the background. I’ve found some great songs listening to that show. Don’t judge!
It’s Why I’m With Travis
Twice in my life, I have broken up with a boyfriend because of watching Jersey Shore. Watching Sammi and Ron fight all the time made me realize how toxic the relationships were, so I broke them off. As stupid as it sounds, I owe my current relationship to Jersey Shore.
The Makeup And Hair
Yes, it was early 2010s so the trends were very different, but I still get ideas for smokey eyes by watching the show. Sometimes the girls had killer makeup on! Also, watching them take care of their hair makes me want to take care of MY hair.
It Reminds Me How Far I’ve Come
There was a time in my life where I was living like that. Drinking heavily every night, ruining friendships, being really aimless in life, etc. And it wasn’t too long ago! I look back at that time while watching the show and think about what I’ve been through… and where I am now. I’m still not perfectly where I want to be, but I’m making it!
Look, no one should have to defend themselves for liking the TV shows they do, but I gotta tell you… the reaction I get when I tell people I love Jersey Shore is priceless. What is YOUR favorite guilty pleasure show? Leave a comment below and tell me!
