‘Snooki,’ ‘JWoww,’ and more celebrate their 2021 successes

“I am most proud of getting through 2021,” Farley says in the video shared to the Jersey Shore Twitter account. The reality star had a hugely successful 2021, opening her boutique store Heavenly Flower in the American Dream Mall and getting engaged to Zack “24” Carpinello

“I think in general, the thing I’m most proud of this year is being a kick-ass mom,” Polizzi says. During her break from the reality series, she spent most of her time with her three kids: Lorenzo, Giovanna, and Angelo. “I’m just proud of myself that I get it all done and I’m really good at it.” 


Cortese is also proud of her mom status. She and her husband Chris Buckner welcomed their second son, Cameron Theo, in May 2021.

When Sorrentino shared what he’s most proud of from 2021, he teased the challenges he and his wife Lauren met throughout the year. He also said fans will get to see them rise to the occasion in the new season of JSFV. Guadagnino is proud of figuring out where he wants to live — the reality star moved back to New York after a brief stint in Los Angeles. 

New Year’s resolutions for the ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ cast 

Farley admits she doesn’t have any resolutions for the new year in the video. But she would like to welcome travel back into her life, as would Cortese. “I just wanna do everything and make memories for my kids,” she says of her 2022 resolution. 

Like Cortese and Farley, Polizzi says she “doesn’t do resolutions” either. “I just want to be healthier, but not give up my wine,” says “Snooki.”

Guadagnino has similar aspirations, claiming he has to “get shredded” if he returns to Chippendales in 2022. Sorrentino, who is actively living his best life, plans to continue that trend and work on “progress over perfection.”

Favorite 2021 memory for the cast of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’  

The Jersey Shore roommates also share their favorite memories from 2021 in the video. For Cortese and Sorrentino, the best part of the year was bringing their babies home from the hospital. Meanwhile, Guadagnino’s favorite memory was eating dinner with his family. 

“Probably coming back to the show because I quit!” Polizzi laughs. “I came back because I missed my roomies.”

After her brief mental health break, Polizzi returned to the series in the second half of season 4. She’ll also be part of season 5.

Farley’s favorite 2021 memories involve filming for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, including their trips to the Poconos and Florida Keys. “Being able to still be with my Jersey Shore family is incredible,” she says. 

‘Jersey Shore’ cast look forward to 2022 

Like many of us, the Jersey Shore cast is looking forward to doing more in 2022. Guadagnino hopes to get back to Las Vegas and perform as the “Keto Guido.” Meanwhile, Farley wants to plan a trip to Hawaii to see her cousin, who moved there years ago.
