Fist pump madness: 12 hours of Jersey Shore
Your fists are going to be very tired after Thursday. MTV is running a super-sized, 12-hour Jersey Shore marathon leading up to the big season five premiere.
Get ready for 12 hours of gym, tanning and laundry!
Yes, the guidos and guidettes of the Jersey Shore are back starting Thursday, Jan. 5, but if you're like us, you need a visual reminder of who was cracking whose skull and who was licking whose tongue before the new season gets under way.
According to TheWrap, on Thursday, Jan. 5, MTV is starting its 12-hour Jersey Shore marathon at 9:30 a.m. EST.
We love the smell of hair gel in the morning!
The marathon is running until 10 p.m. EST, giving you plenty of time to catch up with the entire gang before the big season five premiere directly after.
During the long, long, marathon, you'll have a chance to see previous seasons' episodes, as well as hot new sneak peeks from season five.
Besides GTL, what does season five hold? Well, for starters, the gang returns to Seaside Heights, New Jersey after spending season four demolishing Italy.
MTV teases of the cast: "A drama storm brews due to their unresolved issues left over from their time overseas. Mike threatens to destroy Snooki's newly rekindled relationship with her boyfriend Jionni and the roommates worry about Vinny as he starts to withdraw."
Speaking of Vinny Guadagnino…
Snooki recently stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and, while she danced around the specifics of him and the departure dish, she did shed some light on why it's so easy to want to leave -- it's all about being homesick.
Check out the video as Snooki confirms Vinny's departure...
Watch as it all goes down, starting with the 12-hour marathon on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 9:30 a.m. EST. Don't forget to stick around for the season five premiere.
