'Jersey Shore' Recap: Cupid Comes Ashore
'Jersey Shore' Recap: Cupid Comes Ashore
It seems appropriate in spite of the recent holiday to talk about the couples that have blossomed in recent Jersey Shore episodes. Surprisingly, most of the cast mates have paired off this week ... yes, even Mike.

Jenni and Her Juice Head

Despite recent arguments, JWOW uses her assets to reassure her man why he is still with her. Her relationship with Roger has lasted a fairly long time and they seem to complement one another. I would bet that out of all the couples, they have the best chance of surviving the shore - as long as he doesn't blow off work without calling her again.

Ronnie and Sam

This is one couple who has completely shocked me this season. They haven't had one outrageous argument or emotionally abusive outburst in seven episodes! These two deserve a medal or something. I really wish they would have started out this way because they would have been my favorite roommates from the beginning. I don't know if they have just finally grown out of fighting with one another or if it took watching other roommate's relationships crash for them to realize their ridiculous behavior. Either way, it's refreshing to see these two get along and now I can actually say I'm rooting for them!

Snooki and Jionni

Snooki still has her perfect gorilla, but I do feel a little bad for him after this episode. Snooki claims to have had at least ten UTIs year, and after that many you have to wonder how they keep coming back. Maybe it's all of those "Jersey showers" she takes in the bathrooms of clubs. Despite her unsanitary behavior, these two seem to be head over heels for each other. The only thing that could ruin their love fest is one sneaky conniving roommate, but only time will tell if Mike will actually carry out his plan to sabotage their relationship.

New Love

Deena is on cloud nine when she meets up with Joey again this week and it seems like they could truly have a connection - or just a streak of drunken hook ups. Either way, she's happy for now.

'Wifing' Up the Situation

The unthinkable has happened on the shore - Mike has hooked up with the same girl more than three times! He is really heating things up with Paula and has already commented that she could be the one to "wife him up." Ha, I'll believe it when I see it. It wouldn't be the worst thing to happen, though. At least the other girls like her and she seems to have somewhat of a good head on her shoulders. Then again, she is hooking up with The Situation, so I must question her intelligence.

The Bromance

The longest lasting couple has stood the test of time throughout these last five seasons, and the bromance between Pauly and Vinny seems like it will never die. They are extra affectionate this week when they pay for each other's food and clothes, and their manly love for one another is perhaps the strongest bond out of any couple on the show. Cupid definitely aimed his arrow in the right direction when he shot these two.

Who do you think is the best couple on the show? Do you think Mike will actually settle down with Paula? Will Deena's fling with Joey last? Leave your comments and come back to BuddyTV every week for your Jersey Shore commentary!
