New Jersey Governor Complains ‘Jersey Shore,’ Filled With New Yorkers, Is Bad for State

Jul 26, 2010  •  Post A Comment

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie described MTV’s "Jersey Shore" as a negative for his state and pointed out that most of the cast are interlopers from New York during an interview on Sunday’s "This Week" on ABC, according to an article in the New York Times

“What it does is it takes a bunch of New Yorkers — most of the people on ‘Jersey Shore’ are New Yorkers — drops them at the Jersey Shore and tries to make America feel like this is New Jersey," Christie said. He had earlier responded to host Jake Tapper’s question of whether he believed the show was positive or negative for New Jersey.

The story points out that the governor’s remarks may just bring more viewers to the reality show, which starts its second season on Tuesday.


  1. We’ve been snookered by snooki!

  2. He’s right. Only one is from NJ – Sammy is from Hazlet NJ. One guy – Pauly D is from RI and the rest of the cast is from NY. Not even Manhattan, they’re all b&t people – locals know what this is – and at the shore, they’re called bennies.
    NJ is not made up of Italians with big hair and mob ties who live near refineries! I’m just sayin’!
