The cast of Jersey Shore has come a long way from their humble beginnings. Back when the show first premiered in 2009, they were just a bunch of scrappy kids with insane tans who loved to party at Seaside Heights every summer. Fast forward nearly a decade later, and the OG crew has changed a lot. In addition to well, now being pretty rich, many of them have kids, careers, and have drastically evolved from their old drunken selves. And we don't just mean the plastic surgery, although there has been plenty of that too.
So while the cast has clearly all grown up, many of them (with the exception of two) still call New Jersey home. For Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, she even built her dream house in Florham Park, NJ from scratch. She splurged on everything, from her massive closet to a $10,000 couch. However, after giving birth to two kids, Lorenzo and Giovanna, she now admits that some of her purchases weren't exactly kid-friendly. "I went into designing my house thinking I could have some more expensive items because I didn't realize my kids were going to be animals," she told Glamour. "So the one thing I splurged on was a $10,000 couch that was made from scratch, and now it's ruined. It has poop, pee, throw-up, everything. There's spots everywhere! Once the kids grow up I'll fix it, but I learned that buying expensive furniture with toddlers around is pointless."
However, the good news for Nicole is that the experience of building her own house has ignited her interest in the house flipping business, which is documented in her other reality series, Nicole & Jionni's Shore Flip. "Flipping a house has been a dream of ours, and we literally demolished the whole place and went crazy," she said. "You see the house looking one way and when we're done it looks like a totally different house. And we did it in six weeks."
As for the rest of her Jersey mates, they're all living in equally charming places, from extravagant mansions to modest row houses. Below, take a tour of the places they each call home.
