The bad news: Snooki, JWoww, and The Situation will have their tanning beds filled by someone else after Season Five of "Jersey Shore." The worse news: There will be more "Jersey Shore" beyond Season Five.
Us Weekly is reporting that MTV has plans to completely recast the show after the fifth go-round (which will see the housemates returning to Seaside Heights, NJ after season four's Italy romp). The concern seems to be, of course, money - seeing as the current cast have already renegotiated their contracts five separate times which has ballooned their salaries to $100,000 per person, per episode.
Of course, at least three of the current cast members (Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, and Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio) already have spin-off shows in the works.
