Looks like Vinny, Pauly D, Mike “The Situation,” Ronnie, Sammi, Snooki and J-Wow are going to have some competition, as MTV UK is expanding the cult-hit reality series Jersey Shore to England with Geordie Shore.
This time, instead of focusing a particular ancestry, the UK version of Jersey Shore is focusing on the North East region of England (typically Newcastle), where its inhabitants are (sometimes) lovingly dubbed "Geordies" because of their accents.
While famed British presenters Ant and Dec, Big Brother UK’s commentator Marcus Bentley, and The X Factor’s (UK and US) pop darling judge Cheryl Cole from Girls Aloud are all proud to be called Geordies, MTV UK’s Geordie Shore is moving past any sort of Geordie glitz and is focusing on delivering the best of the best of the “Geordie shore.”
Set to premiere on May 24, Geordie Shore has already cast their version of the famed Jersey Shore group. With cast members like “Diva” Jay (who is rarely pictured with his top on cause he’s so buff), and Holly (who calls herself the most real “fake” person you’ll ever come across), it appears that MTV UK is filling the talent pool with as many familiar Jersey Shore personality types as possible.
