'Jersey Shore' Skews Shore Market, Brighton Beach Is Inspired

Jersey ShoreThanks to the popularity of the MTV's "Jersey Shore" reality show, spending a night inside the show's Seaside Heights home requires about as much social currency as it takes to score a sleepover in the Lincoln bedroom. Not, really.

But the cost to dump your clothing filled trash bags and hit the boardwalk at the humble abode where Snooki desperately tried to get frickysnicky can reach upwards to $4,000 for a single night, says CNN.
That's a steal when compared to a night in The Plaza's Royal Plaza Suite at $20,000 a night or Ty Warner penthouse ar the Four Seasons Hotel for $34,000 a night. Still, we're willing to bet that the presidential suite and the $50 million I.M. Pei designed penthouse can't claim such an esteemed assortment of juiceheads, guidos, guidettes, hippos, and grenades under their roof.

Meanwhile, another under-appreciated stretch of coastline is hoping to revitalize their situation a la Jersey Shore. New York's Brighton Beach is looking for a Russian Snooki and a Russian The Situation for their own brand of all-night partiers and vodka bingers.

Here's a description of who the show is casting:
Are you the Russian Snooki or The Situation? Are you a super outgoing and fun-loving Russian-American that sometimes sneaks kalbaska, pel'meni and vodka from the fridge? Can people hear the Euro/Techno/Russian music blasting from your car before they see you pull up? Do you attend birthday parties at Russian restaurants every weekend? If so, we may want to cast you for a new reality TV show that centers around a group of Russian-American strangers living together in a house on the shores of Brighton Beach for a summer. The cameras will roll as you do what you do best - eat, drink and PARTY.
So instead of offending the Italian community as "Jersey Shore" succeeded in doing, "Brighton Beach" will do it's best to anger the Russian community. We're hoping Oksana Baiul gets a room!
