If you can fist-pump like Snooki and hold your own alongside J-Woww, the Shore is looking for you. And if scouts think you have the look, swagger and Jersey Shore je ne sais quoi, you might soon be sharing a roof with The Situation.
Producers for the hit reality show are coming to Las Vegas on May 30 in search of people to enhance the Jersey Shore cast.
“We don’t exactly know what we’re looking for,” says Rain Halcumb of Doron Ofir Casting. “We’ll know it when we see it.”
Future Pauly D’s need to gel their hair, spray on their tans, don their best Ed Hardy shirt and get to Bare between 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Those with Shore potential—whatever that is—will be invited to callbacks the following day.
As aspiring Ronnies parade around the pool at The Mirage, a second casting takes place on the eastern shore, at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City. The duo of Memorial Day events is the largest recruiting effort the hit MTV show has ever conducted.
The auditions at Bare mark the first time a Jersey Shore casting call has come to the West Coast—if the Las Vegas desert counts as “West Coast.”
Sources close to the show say they’re not looking to start a spin-off or debut an all-new cast—they’re simply looking for “additional roommates to join the legacy.”
However, you don’t have to fist-pump your way through an audition to hang out with Shoresalites: Ronnie hosts at Jet nightclub at The Mirage on May 28, and Pauly D spins at Palms Pool on May 30. Questions? E-mail cast recruiters at firstname.lastname@example.org.
