Casting For The Russian Jersey Shore!

| Filed under: TV NewsSnooki

Now that Jersey Shore is one of the most talked about shows on TV, producer Elina Miller is capitalizing on the stereotypes of privileged ethnic communities in a knock off show based on the Russian-Americans in NYC's Brighton Beach community.

The casting notice says:

“Are you the Russian Snooki or The Situation? Are you a super outgoing and fun-loving Russian-American that sometimes sneaks kalbaska, pel’meni and vodka from the fridge? Can people hear the Euro/Techno/Russian music blasting from your car before they see you pull up? … The cameras will roll as you do what you do best—eat, drink and PARTY. Here’s who we’re looking for: Outgoing guys and girls between the ages of 21 and 30 who would be willing to spend one summer living in an all-expense paid digs in the New York City area and consider themselves to be Russian-American (or from the former U.S.S.R, including the Caucasus). We’re searching for people throughout the entire U.S. including: NYC, Miami, Cleveland, Chicago, L.A., San Francisco and beyond. You must love attention and be the opposite of camera-shy…..”

Brighton Beach, which is known as Little Odessa, has one of the largest Russian communities next to Moscow. Yet, the producer claims she has no intention of accentuating stereotypes.

“While some of the stereotypes may have merit, I’m trying to show that [the community is] a lot more complex," said Miller. "One thing that’s common across all cultures is the desire young people have to have fun, to unleash.”

No one can compare to the glory of Snooki! Sounds like a big mistake!

    "Yet, the producer claims she has no ATTENTION of accentuating stereotypes"

    Intention, right? Intention. Okay, Perez or ghostwriter, the typos and blatant use of the WRONG word is getting annoying. I'm an English major, so it kind of gets to me. And it doesn't just happen once in a while, it happens at least three posts or more a day. Come on, now. Spell-check and proofread, that's all you need. It's just a few sentences, it's not a fucking essay. There's really no excuse.

    Most talked about TV show???

    For the wrong reasons idiot! Because they are disgusting and it is unbelievable that it is even on the air! Don't honor a bunch of neanderthals who are walking STD's.

    YOU honestly make George W. And Palin look like geniuses. Your mom must be sooooo proud.

    SNOOKI ISNT EVEN ITALIAN. IF SHE IS IT IS ONLY A TINY BIT IN HER BLOOD. FAAAAAAAAAAKE.



  24. 24

    I'm Russian so I'm really excited to see what the show's all about and how stereotypical these other Russiain-American people will be.



  25. 25

    Why must she always have that idiotic, pursed lips, expression on her face?

    Re: shittin_condoms – I don't fucking watch the Jersey shore and I won't be watching this shit either!

    Re: shittin_condoms – LICK MY AMERICAN ASS BITCH



  28. 28

    Because only white ethnics are telegenic, right?

    I don't see any North Jersey show about India's immigrants. Just sayin'.



  29. 29

    Thankfully, we don't have any self defacing stereotypes. So what, we drink on occasion, so does everyone. We do have tons of ghetto acting young idiots here in BB, that's a shame.

    Somehow, I am not overly-opposed to the idea, but I am cautious. This is probably how italian-americans felt when JS was being produced.



  30. 30

    OH BOY. Cant wait for this. Im serious.



  31. 31

    Re: GayRay
    we're not all communists, don't be ignorant. and when was it official that communism was bad in the first place..?



  32. 32

    I'm Russian too, and I think this idea is just so fucking dumb. Hardly anybody seriously enjoyed the original Jersey Shore. it just creates more unnecessary stereotypes in society.
    Regardless if you believe that or not, there are lots of people who stereotype ethnic groups based on what they see on TV. The Russian one will be just the same.
    When you intentionally seek out "party and camera-loving" young people, obviously they're going to be obnoxious anyways. The difference with this reality TV shit is, their behavior is internationally televised, and it creates a (or amplifies an existing) stereotype of a specific ethnic group, because that is what was intentionally desired by this producer. I mean why would she specifically seek out "Italian-Americans" or "Russian-Americans" or any other group of people? Think about it.

    The people I imagine they will get to represent Russian-Americans will probably be like this disgusting waste of flesh in the image above. Not realistic, nothing like real Russians at all.



  33. 33

    Anything to get rid of Snooki



  34. 34

    FAIL
    the first was worse enough



  35. 35

    I really don't like Snooki. She's really ugly and she should not be on TV. ew ew ew.



  36. 36

    i honestly cant understand the outrage with this show jersey shore with people saying their crazy and outrageous.. i watched the show and none of them even have good personalities .. also going out to club and hooking up with girls is pretty much every guys night out.. nothing new there.. why snooki is so popular i have no clue and situation with those abs.. lol ..has he looked in the mirror? thats not a six pack .. ronnie is a 3rd grade kid all juiced up .. that sammi girl thinks shes such hot shit .. lol shes gross..and so is that smokin voice she got..vinny is ok .. dj pauly d cant dj lol .. hes whack if you heard on of his sets and bolt on tits j-wow .. hah! ….loser with a corny name like j-woww.. change ur name to j-ow ..cause them tit balls prolly hurt!

    If Snooki keeps pursing her lips like that she'll have wrinkles before she's 30. Bring on the Juvederm!



  38. 38

    I have a better idea … instead of casting for teh Russian versions… send these losers over there and leave them there.



  39. 39

    okay, i now know how the italians felt because of this show. If you don't understand the outrage of it, just wait until they make a jersey shore about your nationality.
    i'm only half russian (half finnish XD) and i can not believe how insulted i feel.
    maybe if the world stop stereo-typing people (colour/race/nationality, gay/straight, girl or boy etc.) then there wouldn't be so much fucking hate in the world!



  40. 40

    Why does she always have to pucker up in all her pics…..even her new BF does the same thing when posing….lol



  41. 41

    The people on the Jersey Shore are not even from the Jersey Shore or Jersey for that matter. I am and it pisses me off. At least use people that are really from New Jersey!! I'm from South Jersey and we don't act like those asses



  42. 42

    Re: Vanechka

    I will make it official for you - communism was bad and horrible etc etc -
    signed, entire Eastern Europe.



  43. 43

    Let's be positive. At least the russian Snooki could look good. The real Snooki is ugly for italian standards.



  44. 44

    i dont really care what kind of shitodd named bunch of losers they desire to bring to tv next i will not be watching and bythe way i hate hate hate looking at that amy winehouse crooked mouthed dwarf of a ho who you seem to want to fucks picture please stop giving NOOKi major time



  45. 45

    Re: flwergal – seriously asshole…communism wasnt all bad! back in the day no one paid for education, the children were taken care of and fed! it was safe to walk on the street at 11 pm! the only downfall was the fear that people lived with every day and the collapse of communism, that left you being "free" but no idea how to stand on your own feet!



  46. 46

    This hideous bitch has a face you would never get tired of kicking. Can you kids please get tired of this fucking show so that she will disappear into obscurity?

    Please!!



  47. 47

    SNOOKI IS EFFING HIDEOUS AND SHE IS NOT EVEN ITALIAN!



  48. 48

    YAY! Can't wait to see it! I



  49. 49

    is that a bump-it that snooki is sporting? AH



  50. 50

    there's never a time when you want to fuck with russians. that's why we keep them way out in brighton beach. this can't be good.



  51. 51

    Mark My Words this will be the best show EVER!!! Russians know how to party! This show is long overdue!!!!!



  52. 52

    hahaha you so have to do one with the serbians, theyre even crazier :)



  53. 53

    I'm Russian, and from Brooklyn…I don't live far from Brighton Beach. I am already ashamed of those who live there, they really are an embarrassment. The show would be entertaining but they would put an even worse rep on Russians than guidos did for Italians.



  54. 54

    OOOO MAN. i should totally be on that show! Show them how Real Russians DO!



  55. 55

    I was not a fan of the Jersey Shore but i will check this show out! Cant wait!
