It's been five years since Jersey Shore signed off after six seasons of GTL, fights, hook-ups, and Sunday dinners. Now, the debauchery heads south for Floribama Shore. Eight new roommates have descended upon Panama City, and ahead of Monday's series premiere at 10 p.m. ET on MTV, it's time to meet the new Situations and Snookis.
A local of Panama City, Nilsa is thrilled to show her new friends a good time in her hometown. The 23-year-old has already experienced plenty of heartbreak in her life, considering she's divorced. That might explain why she's having a tough time picking which guy in the house she's most into.
Jersey Shore comparison: Sammi. Early in season 1, Sammi "Sweartheart" found herself in a love triangle with Mike and Ronnie. Similarly, Nilsa has already caught feelings for multiple roommates. Let's hope her search for love at the shore ends with less fights and less mattresses being thrown outside!
This home schooled, muscled, ladies man can be summed up by this quote from the first episode: "Being a Southern boy, I have to be a gentleman and a douchebag at the same time." Even worse, the man loves to dab.
Jersey Shore comparison: Ronnie. It's not just the muscles (okay, a lot of it is about the muscles). But, like Ronnie, Jeremiah causes one of the roommates to think twice about who she's most interested in.
Where to begin with this wild child? Like Nilsa, the 21-year-old is a Panama City local. Nicknamed "Krazy Kortni," she's ready to party (maybe too ready), as her stay in the beach house marks her first time living away from home.
Jersey Shore comparison: Snooki. Everyone loves Snooki now, but when she first showed up in Seaside, she didn't make the best first impression. The same goes for Kortni, who gets a little too wet and wild on the first night. Apparently, she likes my comparison, since she told ET, "I see a little bit of Snooki in myself." As do I.
Originally from Atlanta, Kirk is now a Panama City resident. Like the Fast & Furious crew, there's nothing he cares more about than family, so expect him to go all out to protect his new Floribama crew.
Jersey Shore comparison: Pauly D. The combination of the hair and the smile makes this an easy one.
Fresh out of Alabama, Aimee just ended a 10-year relationship after her boyfriend cheated on her with her cousin and got another girl pregnant. But the self-described "Princess Goddess Mermaid" is now set to "get butt booty wild."
Jersey Shore comparison: Deena. I'm gonna be honest, Deena was the only one left, especially since I didn't want to do Aimee wrong and compare her to Angelina.
