'Jersey Shore' hopefuls hit Long Island for casting call
"America's Next Top Model"? Psh. These bronzed-hopefuls are aiming to be America's Next Top Situation/Snooki/DJ Pauly D/ ... well, you get the picture.
An army of "Jersey Shore" wannabes descended upon Long Island for Season 3's casting call -- hosted by 495 Productions (the company behind MTV's hit show) and Long Island radio station WBLI -- Monday and Tuesday night at the Crazy Donkey bar. Ambitious considering there's been no official word on whether there will be a third season.
But even the best fist pumpers weren't guaranteed a chance: "Remember not everyone will be picked and not everyone will get to meet with the casting directors," the notice said on the station's site. Could a future Snooki have been overlooked? Let's hope not.
For now, you can enjoy/loathe the original "Jersey Shore" cast when it returns for a second season, which was filmed in South Beach, in July.
