Which Jersey Shore Stars Are Actually From New Jersey?

Are all of the castmates of Jersey Shore actually from New Jersey? Many people assume so, since the word "Jersey" is right there in the title. But the fact is, many of the cast members are not natives of the Shore — or any part of the state.

When selecting the cast, the show chose people who liked to vacation in Jersey, which means many of the cast members are actually from surrounding states. However, their love if Jersey is far from fake, and several of the cast members have recently relocated to the state that made them famous.

So here's a rundown of who is a Jersey native, who has moved there recently, and who only lives there during filming.

Sammi: Sammi is from Jersey, but she currently lives in the Palisades, NY with Ronnie.

Deena: Deena Nicole is another real Jersey girl. She hails from New Egypt, NJ. As far as we know, she still lives there.

The Situation: The Situation was born in Staten Island, but grew up in New Jersey, where we believe he still lives.

Snooki: Snooki is a native of Poughkeepsie, New York — or, according to some defensive Facebook fans, neighboring county Marlboro, NY. Either way, not Jersey. However, she currently lives in Jersey, with her fiance Jionni LaValle's family, making her son Lorenzo LaValle a real Jersey boy.

JWOWW: Like Snooki, JWOWW is originally from New York (specifically Franklin Square). However, like Snooks, she lives in Jersey now: She and her fiance Roger Mathews live in Toms River, NJ. Their home was recently hit hard by hurricane Sandy, but they seem to be recovering quickly.

Vinny: Vinny is a Staten Island kid through and through. He was born and raised there, and he recently bought a house there.

Ronnie: Ronnie is a Bronx boy and, as we said above, now lives in NY with Sammi.

Pauly D: Pauly D is from Providence, Rhode Island, and currently lives in Vegas.

Jersey Shore airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
