‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 5 was filming in Marathon, Florida 

Fans of the MTV series are some of the best detectives. After the breadcrumbs the cast left on social media the week of Nov. 1, fans on Reddit figured out where the new season was being filmed. 

“I’m pretty sure they’re filming at the Isla Bella Resort in [the] Florida Keys,” the fan shared. The resort had a live feed up until we published news about Jersey Shore filming season 5 there. But before the hotel took the feed down, fans on Reddit believe they spotted Vinny Guadagnino and several other cast members around the resort’s pool area and beachfront. 


“Look at the rooms on the website … the carpet and bathroom [match] Lauren [Sorrentino’s] pictures [that] she just posted,” another fan pointed out in a comment. They also mention how the drapes and patterned carpet matched a post from Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi‘s stories.

Hotel staff may have taken down the Isla Bella Resort’s live feed, but that didn’t stop guests staying at the resort from taking pictures and video of the Jersey Shore cast and crew. DeuxMoi, the celebrity gossip Instagram account, shared a fan-submitted video of the roommates gathered on the beach.

The video showed candles arranged in the shape of a heart on the sand and what looked like Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Zach “24” Carpinello sharing a romantic moment. As the video pans out, Guadagnino, the Sorrentino’s, and the rest of the Jersey Shore cast appeared to be watching the sweet moment. 

“Last night, they were filming a scene with a heart made out of candles on the beach,” the submission read. Fans will have to wait for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 5 to find out more. 

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is still an unknown for ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 5

Since Ortiz-Magro’s exit in May 2021Jersey Shore fans have been curious about his return in season 5. In August 2021, the reality star told TMZ he was eager to come back and was communicating with producers. At the time, he hinted about his return at “the end of season 5.”

While no reports came in about Ortiz-Magro being at the Isla Bella Resort in Florida, that doesn’t mean he won’t show up in new episodes. Based on social media posts, the Jersey Shore cast seems to have most of the footage they need for the new season. Some of it was filmed in Florida, while some was filmed at the casts’ respective homes. There’s still time for Ortiz-Magro to join the Jersey Shore cast in a more home-oriented gathering. 

With all of that said, fans can likely expect new episodes of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation in early 2022. Stay tuned to Showbiz Cheat Sheet for updates on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 5.
