Shock of shocks: Pauly D is ditching his home state of Rhode Island and moving to Sin City!

The Jersey Shore star revealed on Chelsea Lately earlier this week that he is packing up his fresh-to-death kicks and his hair gel and moving to Las Vegas. However, the star admits that he’ll still visit the state that made him famous — New Jersey — “every summer.”

Pauly is no stranger to Vegas. The star briefly lived there in 2011 when he was a DJ in Residence for the Palms Casino. (A journey that was documented on The Pauly D Project.) When he wasn’t in Sin City, the star lived at home with his parents in Providence, Rhode Island. But now that Pauly is a big time celebrity, he deserves to have his own place away from his parents.

Do you think Pauly will last in Las Vegas?

Jersey Shore Season 6 will premiere on Thursday, October 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
