DJ Pauly D performs at Madison Square Garden  

In January 2022, Pauly DelVecchio performed at Madison Square Garden when the New York Rangers played the Toronto Maple Leafs. His girlfriend Nikki Hall and side piece Vinny Guadagnino were in attendance, as documented by MTV cameras.

Mike ‘The Situation’ dyes his hair blond 

“The Situation” went blond in December 2021, as documented on social media. “The whole family is blonde now,” Mike wrote in a tweet. In the second half of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 5, cameras caught Mike showing off his golden locks to the roomies. 

“You look like Slim Shady!” DJ Pauly D tells him in the teaser. “More like Thick Shady,” Vinny adds. “I’m having heart palpitations,” Lauren reacts initially.

But Mike’s time with blond hair doesn’t last long. He’s already back to dark hair — which isn’t his natural hair color, according to “The Lie Detector Test.” A brown-haired “Situation” played in the American Cornhole League’s competition on March 20, 2022. 

Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley and Zack ’24’ Carpinello talk wedding plans in the second half of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’

Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Zack “24” Carpinello got engaged on her birthday in February 2021 atop the Empire State Building. So far, the couple has been enjoying their engagement. But in the teaser for the upcoming episodes of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Jenni and Zack talk about wedding plans. 

“You would literally get married tomorrow,” Jenni says in the clip. He replies: “100%.” It’s unclear whether MTV will film Jenni’s wedding for the reality TV series. 

‘Jersey Shore’ cast visits El Paso, Texas 

In early March 2022, Jersey Shore fans in El Paso, Texas, spotted the Jersey Shore cast at a local bar. Photos started circulating on Reddit after one user posted. While there, DJ Pauly D performed at the 11:11 nightclub, which we’ll likely get to see in the second half of season 5. 

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni, Pauly D, Vinny, Deena Cortese, and Mike were in the photos. The Jersey Shore cast appeared to be playing pool and dancing. In the teaser trailer for the second half of season 5, “Snooki” is seen barking into Pauly D’s megaphone.

Angelina Pivarnick’s relationship with Chris Larangeira comes up in the next half of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’

Despite what happened in the first half of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 5, Angelina Pivarnick and Chris Larangeira are going through a divorce. According to the teaser, the MTV show will address their separation in the second half of season 5. “You take a f***ing TV that’s like 40 inches bro,” Angelina says to the wall where her television once was. 

In another clip, “Snooki” notices Angelina is not wearing her ring at a sit-down dinner with Jenni and Deena. “I thought that things were going to change, and they didn’t change,” she tells them. “I’m like, ‘This is not normal.'” 

‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 5 estimated return date

On March 31, a new season of Ex on the Beach will premiere on MTV in Jersey Shore: Family Vacation‘s time slot — 8 p.m. ET. With 10 episodes in the season, the earliest it’ll end is June 2022. If Ex on the Beach doesn’t take any breaks in air dates, June is the soonest we’ll get another season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation
