Bar Fight!
Too Bad It Was Staged

The Jersey Shore is a lie!?! With the Jersey Shore season 5 premiere date announced, (un)shocking allegations arise and this time, there's video proof.

The controversy over how real reality TV actually is feels age old at this point, especially in the wake of the Kardashian/Humphries wedding meltdown. Now, however, The Jersey Shore Exposed! Proof It's Fake! video breaks down a Snooki and Deena bar fight to prove there's no way it was real. Plus, don't miss the sneak peek of Jersey Shore season 5!

Is this Snooki and Deena Jersey Shore bar fight fake?

Host and comedian Sean Klitzner is a (not so) serious Jersey Shore fan, so he was loath to share the flub he found in Jersey Shore season 4, episode 11, "Situation Problems," which aired Oct. 13.

In the clip that's been broken down (below), Snooki and Deena are already angry after a bunch of Italian guys at the Central Park bar got too close to them on the dance floor. Anger turns to fury when a bartender throws ice cubes at them, and Snooki and Deena proceed to "trash" the place, breaking the bottles lined up on the bar.

Clearly, Florence, Italy was wise to set up parameters for the Jersey Shore visit!

Klitzner cries foul over this Italian scene, however, claiming the bar brawl is completely fake. The video breaks it down visually, but here are the main components of the argument:

1 – A producer threw the ice, not the bartender: The key to this argument is that the ice comes from the wrong direction, with the camera catching a glimpse of a woman wearing an ear piece. In the slow motion replay, you can even see that woman, presumably a producer, retracting her arm after the ice throw.

2 – The bar was set up for the Snooki attack: Although it's a hopping club, there's no one actually standing at the bar where the showdown happens. In addition, Snooki isn't knocking down expensive bottles of booze. The bar is lined with cheap cocktail mixers.

"It's all real and we couldn't make this all up?" an MTV spokeperson responded when presented with the video, but you be the judge.

I just watched this on my DVR for the first time, even as a first time watcher - this is definitely scripted. You can see after the ice is thrown, a female producer comes in the bottom right corner and tells them to break bottles.

The producer threw the ice people just accept that.

Thats actually not true, watch the show again. Right before the madness happens you see the bartender grab the ice scoop and scoop ice, the ice clearly comes from behind the bar. You can see this BEFORE the ice is even thrown. I can see where you would think the producer through it, because her arm was out but she was actually trying to get the girls attention. Just watch it again, you'll see what I mean. Also, a lot of people are saying the scene with snooki throwing bottles at mike is fake too because Ronnie's shirt color changes. This is also not true. Ron is wearing a red shirt throughout the fight. The only time you see Ron with a grey shirt is a close up of him with his mouth open with a shocked look on his face. That is MTV's editing. They cut that from another scene to make it look like he was surprised. He was in fact in kitchen with the pizza the whole entire time, wearing a red shirt. You have to realize that MTV crops and edits a ton of their shows. Just because someones outfit changes doesnt mean it was staged.

The ice throwing is not fake. If you view the video frame by frame it's clear that the bartender threw the ice.

Uhh, hello? Where have you been the past four seasons? There are actually videos all over YouTube where passersby have recorded it being filmed and, surprise surprise, there are bodyguards holding people back! How could it possibly be legit scenarios when these people have this level of fame? If they didn't have people there to protect the cast there would be no Jersey Shore, just footage of them all being flocked to by fans! Do you really bars along Seaside would be that empty if Deena or Snooki went there for a couple of drinks? Nuh-uh. How are you only just realizing this now?

i understand your story, but if the producer was in fact the one to throw the ice, why is it you can see the bartender backing away once the ice is thrown but the other two stayed in place? the woman suposedly wearing a earpeice talking to the director may have been a fan of the show or a cocky drunk italian.
