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.
JWOWW: Like Snooki, JWOWW is originally from New York (specificallyFranklin 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.
