Why is that every time someone reminisces on Jersey Shore Family Reunion it's all about their massive fights from the earlier part of the decade? We still cackle thinking how the toast to The Situation in episode two was a literal series of flashbacks to his days as the group punching bag. These volatile and violent people shouldn't be in the same country together, let alone the same house. And yet as we brace ourselves for more showdowns in Miami, we can't help but look back on all the epic blow-ups that happened on the original Jersey Shore.
And what's funny is seeing how these altercations did — or didn't — impact how the Jersey Shore fam interacts with each other today. Like, no doubt Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro are dunzo for good after their trainwreck of a relationship. Like, we lost count of all the times they were at each other's throats. And yet it's amazing to think back to all the times Sammi lashed out at Jenni "JWoww" Farley (dumb move, TBH) in the early seasons of the show. Cut to: Sammi cradling Jenni's daughter Meilani when she was first born in 2014 and saying "I love you," on her way out the hospital. These kids. They've come so far.
Anyway, let's look back to some of the most insane battles in Jersey Shore history, and definitely anticipate more to top this list.
