Jersey Shore Ruining State Reputation

New Jersey is a breeding ground for tanned, aggressive, and rowdy 20-somethings.

It sounds like a joke, but people in the Jersey Shore viewing demographic (roughly ages 12 to 30) think the state is comprised solely of beaches, gyms, tanning salons, laundromats and nightclubs. This perception is a direct result of JWoww and her cronies and undermines the scenic beauty of our state…


If an embarrassing reality show was the only problem NJ had, it wouldn’t be such a big deal. Unfortunately we’re already referred to as “the armpit of the country” and constantly have to deal with the repercussions of being so close to New York without actually being New York. Lately, every sentence about the state includes either a reference to “GTLing” or a wisecrack about the governor who is constantly finding himself in goofy and awkward predicaments. (Like stealing helicopters for little league games and taking strange pictures.)

Jersey Shore makes us look worse than we already do …
