Each year, New Times puts together a list of the
sketchiest politicians and unholiest celebrities and weirdest human
beings to call the Magic City home. So who made the filthy cut this
year? We're releasing the names one by one ahead of next week's issue,
which comes with a full-page illustration of the dynamic dozen.
In 2010, South Beach's trashiest clubs were invaded by a film crew trailing a group of sexually promiscuous New Jersey Italians--one of whom was Chilean and another Spanish--who spoke in acronyms and war metaphors and dressed like they had been chased from their homes by fire.
God save the Jersey Shore.
It seemed simultaneously serendipitous and ominous when MTV's crew of self-proclaimed guidos descended on South Beach. It also made the perfect amount of nonsense-- after all the show is freakin' called "Jersey Shore" but really, where else could they end up but Club Space?
They perpetuated the orange-skin-and-club-music stereotype that plagues Miami, puked all over Washington Avenue, and provided a horrible model for our daughters and little sisters.
So why are we so amped to have them back for Season 4?
