MTV's The Jersey Shore took America by storm this winter with their fist pumping, muscular, juice head antics and Thursday night's season finale was a reminder about just why we fell in love with them.
"I came in with a bang and I'm going out with a bang," declared Nicole "Snookie" Polizzi. While the finale didn't quite pack the same punch as the regular season did, there was still plenty of hooking up to heat up the screen.
Poor Snooki had a bad run with men in the finale, getting denied by both her ex-boyfriend Justin, and her current crush, Keith, but she more than made up for it during a steamy romp in the hot tub with her housemate Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. Things really start to sizzle when The Situation asks, "If you're hungry try a Snickers?" and Snooki teasingly responds, "Yeah, try me." The bikini comes off and tongues fly!
On a more romantic level, Ronnie Magro and his summer hookup, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, realize that while "you're not supposed to fall in love on the Jersey Shore", they've gotten very close and want to continue with their relationship.
At the end of the day, it wasn't just a season of hookups and heartache. While having their final dinner together, Pauly "Pauly D" Del Vecchio tears up while reminiscing with Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Snooki, The Situation, Sammi and Ronnie about how they've become a family, what a blast they've had in the house together and how they wish they could do it again next summer.
They got their wish and so did all the Jersey Shore fans! The cast has been signed to a second season where Snooki promises things will get "a lot crazier" than the first. Is that even possible?!?
