‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’s 25 Cringiest Moments
If there's one takeaway from Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, it's that nine years later, Snooki, Jenni, Mike, Ronnie, Pauly, Vinny, Deena and yes, even Angelina, can still make us cringe. And we mean criiiinge.
When it comes to secondhand embarrassment, Family Vacation truly is the gift that keeps on giving, from pants-pooping awkwardness to baby mama drama and sooo much immaturity. While some of the cast of Jersey Shore may have learned about adulthood and responsibility since the show first aired on MTV back in 2009, a few self-proclaimed guidos and guidettes still have a thing or two to learn about growing up. (We're looking at you Ronnie.)
Below, check out 25 totally cringe-worthy moments from the sensational revival.
When Snooki Got a College Student So Wasted She Threw Up and Passed Out in Her Underwear
After Ronnie, then in a relationship, brought home a group of women from the club, Snooki tried to foil his opportunity to cheat by doing everything in her power to make the women black out — rather than, you know, having Ronnie be responsible for his own actions.
When Ronnie's Terrible Grammar Ruined the Note He and the Boys Wrote Deena
In an attempt to get Deena out of the house so he and the the Jersey Shore men could have a boys weekend, they sort of endearingly bought her a plane ticket home to see her husband, but botched the surprise with a note made nonsensical by Ronnie's extremely poor grammar.
When Vinny Wouldn't Leave Snooki the Hell Alone After She Explicitly Told Him Not to Come Near Her
Snooki, who previously cheated on her now-husband with Vinny, repeatedly asked him to keep his distance out of concern that it would upset Jionni. Vinny, however, is apparently a 30-year-old man who doesn't understand boundaries or basic social cues, and kept getting obnoxiously close to her despite her explicit request to stop.
When Ronnie Called Mike "The Incarceration," "The Tax Evasion" and an Assortment of Other Wince-Inducing Names
There are just certain lines you shouldn't cross, and Ronnie, though fully aware of what he was doing, ignored them outright.
Any Time Vinny Talked to His Girlfriend On the Phone, Digging Himself Deeper Into a Hole
Because somehow, in Vinny's mind, getting the numbers of two women who are definitely not his girlfriend is somehow better than just one.
When Jenni and Snooki Fought and Snooki Called Her an "Idiot" for No Reason
One the one hand, it was the kind of fight you only have with someone you deeply love. On the other, third graders have have had arguments with more maturity and tact.
Pretty Much All of Ronnie's Behavior From the Night He Cheated on His Girlfriend
Including the next day, when he repeatedly insisted he had done nothing wrong. (He most certainly had).
When Jenni Awkwardly Had to Ask Angelina to Leave the House in Miami
When Ronnie Called a Cab to Take Pauly D's Date Home Simply Because She Resembled Sammi
When it comes to all things Sammi-related, Ronnie may want to heed the advice of a certain Disney princess.
Every Time Anyone Interacted With the Creepy Sammi Doll
That there even was a creepy Sammi doll says enough on its own.
But, More Specifically, Ron Treating the Doll Like It Was the Actual Sam, Who He Is Very Clearly Not Over
We have secondhand embarrassment.
The Way Vinny "The Keto Guido" Scraped Cheese Off His Pizza In the First Episode
In the words of Sammi: STAHP.
Every Time Vinny Joked About the Girls' Plastic Surgery
“Nicole’s face has the price tag hanging off of it.”
Every Time Mike Brought Up "French Fries" in Front of Ronnie or Jen
For all the progress Mike has made, he apparently hasn't fully let go of his pot-stirring past.
When Angelina Apparently Pooped Her Pants... and Wouldn't Shut Up About It
But why would you keep talking about it? UM, HELLO!?
When Ronnie Nearly Ruined Mike's Proposal By Instigating a Fight With Jenni
He literally told Jenni Mike said he wanted to throw a pie in her face as a prank because he was jealous of Mike's happy relationship. WTF?
When Ronnie Nearly Ruined Mike's Proposal (Again!!) by Talking About It Loudly While in Earshot of Lauren
Seriously, Rahn, stahp.

Behold, an adult man who refuses to accept responsibility for a single thing he does!
When Vinny Was a Total Brat About His Dumb Haircut

We've got a situation.
Uncle Nino. Full Stop.
What the hell is he saying, anyway?
