When the gang of Jersey Shore hit Florence, Italy to film season four, we knew they’d have a few secrets from the set. Read on to see what we discovered — trust us, there’s some good dish…
While you’re watching the season four premiere of Jersey Shore on August 4th, you’ll already have the scoop on some secrets from the set. The Hollywood Reporter visited the Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and the rest of the gang while they were filming in Italy and brought back a few nuggets of information that you might be interested in knowing.
Did you know that the apartment they filmed in was actually a bank? Yeah, they turned a bank into a fun Jersey living quarters. Don’t worry, there was no money or treasure to be found.
Another fun fact? Don’t think these fist pumping guido and guidettes were sneaking off to make private phone calls — because they weren’t. The cast was only allowed one private call a week and the rest were filmed for the show. Maybe that’s why Vinny Guadagnino was so homesick — he didn’t get to talk to his buds back home. It all makes perfect sense.
Last but not least in the highlighted secret info The Hollywood Reporter brought back — Snooki’s little stuffed crocodile found his way to Florence, Italy. Yes, the green stuffed animal affectionately named Crocodilly who became the victim of a season three prank made his was to the Motherland. Crocodilly even helped Snooki with some sad times while filming — a fight with her season four boyfriend Jionni LaValle.
A few other little facts popped up like LaValle spent Snooki’s money like crazy and they lived like pigs, but those aren’t really secrets we didn’t already know. Don’t forget to check out the season four premiere of Jersey Shore August 4th. What are you most looking forward to seeing? Snookie hitting a cop car, the fights or the hot and heavy hookups?
