New MTV ‘Jersey Shore’-Style Show Films in Hudson Valley
A new generation of wannabe Snookis and Situations more are invading the Hudson Valley.
As I'm sure many of you know, Snooki of Jersey Shore fame is from the Hudson Valley. She claimed to be the "Princess of Poughkeepsie," but was really from Marlboro.
Besides a few scenes filmed outside Snooki's home, the show wasn't filmed in the Hudson Valley. However, sadly (depending on how you feel), that isn't the case anymore.
Jersey Shore creator and executive producer SallyAnn Salsano is bringing the Jersey Shore format to Hunter Mountain.
Winter Break: Hunter Mountain tells the story of eight young strangers left "alone in an isolated cabin," according to the teaser. The "isolated cabin" is at Hunter Mountain in Greene County.
MTV refers to Hunter Mountain, the site of Taste of County, Mountain Jam and much more as "a prime East Coast destination when it's icy outside."
According to MTV, the show will feature some icy outdoor adventures and of course lots of parties, fights, shenanigans and tons of drama.
In the trailer, released Tuesday, by MTV one castmember says, "If this girl came with a 30-pack, I'd marry her!" Yup, those words were uttered not far from your Hudson Valley home! Yikes!
The cast includes:
- Jeffrey Brewer (J. Brew), Manchester, N.H.
- Marc Vindas, Bergenfield, N.J.
- Carissa Witham, Waterbury, C.T.
- Jillian Metz, Manalapan, N.J.
- Alex Shinder (Sheen), Hoboken, N.J.
- Taylar Shinn, Oroville, C.A.
- Alessandra Camerlingo, Blairstown, N.J.
- Taylor James (TJ) Angus, Rutland, M.A.
Winter Break: Hunter Mountain is scheduled to premiere on MTV on Feb. 27.
