When you see the neon pink, yellow, and purple cheetah print on the TV screen, you instantly think that Snooki must be close by. The premiere of the third season of “Snooki and Jwoww” opens up with the song “I Don’t Care,” obviously carrying on their “Jersey-girl party animal” reputation. Although this song signifies their old behaviors in the popular MTV series “Jersey Shore,” they both assure the audience in the beginning of the episode that they somehow have magically transformed from their old “young and stupid” selves to their new and improved “mature and sexy” selves. Although extremely assuring, both girls still bring out their young and stupid sides from the start.
Snooki, being known for her incredible intelligence, always knows the right things to say, especially when it comes to her wide knowledge of vocabulary and historical events. When Jwoww and Snooki are chatting over “fro-yo,” Jwoww refers to Snooki as “the epitome of vain,” Snooki responds with a confused look on her face. After having to ask what “vain” means, Snooki repeats the definition and then looks at Jwoww, very offended. Later in the episode, Jwoww makes a reference to the Egyptians and how “they didn’t have any help building the Pyramids.” While this already sounds idiotic, Snooki then adds her expertise when she reassures Jwoww that they did have help, from the cats. What cats, you ask? Not even Snooki knows the answer to that question.
Even though their obvious ignorance comes out in their normal conversations, there is definitely a more mature platform to this new season. Now that Snooki has her baby, Lorenzo, her and Jionni’s (her fiancée) lives have become more about parenting and less about partying. Although the small family of three still lives with Jionni’s mom, the episode focuses on the two of them planning to tell his mom that they are escaping the nest for the summer in order to, essentially, do a “test drive” of their parenting skills without their safety net around to do all of the dirty work.
On Jwoww’s side of the episode, it starts out quite rocky when Roger (her fiancée) catches her without her ring on. As seen on the seasons of “Jersey Shore,” Roger and Jenny have seemed to have a lot of troubles in their relationship. Attempting to take a step in the right direction, Jenny schedules an appointment with a couple’s counselor. Like most men would be, Roger was highly opposed to counseling because he thinks they are “better than that.” Like most women, Jenny stuck to her guns and made him go to the counseling session.
Overall, the beginning to this season of “Snooki and Jwoww” was full of humor, but it lacked keeping my attention for even 30 minutes. The next episodes seem to have more substance as Snooki, Jwoww, Jionni, and Roger move down to the Jersey Shore for the summer. Tune in next week to the second episode of “Snooki and Jwoww” on MTV at 10 p.m.
