Jersey Shore: They Get More and More

I wonder if the cast of Jersey Shore had any idea of their future when they signed on for the first season of the series.

Did Snooki, Pauly D, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Angelina, J-Woww, Ronnie and Sammie know that they'd skyrocket into fame, fashion lines and multiple spin-off series? Not to mention the phrases they coined, like my personal favorite, GTL. (I can't keep up with it, though. I've only got the occasional G, no T, and lots of L, but whatever.)

First, we heard that Angelina was getting a spin-off show. This makes sense, because we can't send her back with the Jersey Shore cast when she keeps walking out every season.

Then, Mike "The Situation" graced (or at least showed up on) our television sets with his moves on Dancing With the Stars.

Now, Pauly D has an MTV spin-off in the works. The topic of the show is a secret, but reports note that it's probably about his deejaying.

Between the clothing, the books (J-Woww's writing one and Mike has one already),and the appearances, the Jersey Shore cast has surely brought revenue to MTV Networks and to their own pockets.

Of course, the original Jersey Shore stars and MTV networks aren't the only groups benefiting from the Jersey Shore fame. New cast member Deena Nicole Cortese, the newest cast member of Jersey Shore (taking Angelina's place), is walking into ready-made fame. Also, the stars of spin-off shows such as "The Persian Version," another MTV creation, will be benefiting when they eat their slice of reality pie.
