On December 3, 2009, "Jersey Shore" debuted on MTV. Three years and six seasons later, the gang said farewell to their digs in Seaside Heights on the series finale of the reality TV phenomenon.
The cast bid farewell to one of their own, as Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino destroyed the duck phone in one of his last bouts of frustration. And then, it was time to say goodbye to the house and the show. Their comments were heartfelt, and just about as eloquent as their fans have come to expect.
"Yo, my eye is f*cking itchy right now, yo," Vinny said, denying that he was getting emotional. "Our lives will never be the same again because of this f*cking thing."
When they talked about how the experience had changed their lives, they really meant it. The entire cast became household names, and many of them have already found success beyond the show. It was a rare show that became more than just a television series. Love it or hate it, you'll surely remember it.
