Not only is Jersey Shore the most buzzed-about TV show emanating from the Garden State since The Sopranos, its got nearly as much violence: Thursday's episode, titled Boardwalk Blowups, featured more hand-to-hand combat involving the stars of MTV's new smash hit.
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Ronnie Magro had their game faces on with would-be extras during the episode, both getting into dust-ups.
Polizzi clawed it up against a portly blond attacker cast mate Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio aptly described as "total white trash."
Magro, arguing with Sammi Giancola during an attempted romantic stroll on the famed boardwalk, caught the negative attention of some onlookers, eventually wrestling one of them down faster than you can say "Paulie Walnuts."
For more of the dust-ups, hook-ups and break-ups, check out Jersey Shore, which airs on MTV Thursday at 10/9c.
