Family Vacation’ Fans Worry Nikki Hall Is Trying to Replace Snooki on the Show

The Jersey Shore may never be the same. Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino will all be back on MTV this November when season 4 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation premieres. So will Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Cortese, and Angelina Pivarnick. But Jersey Shore icon Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has skipped out on the show, citing family obligations. Her absence means some viewers don’t have high hopes for the new episodes. A few are even worried that someone might be trying to replace her.

Jersey Shore made Polizzi a star, but the one-time party girl has settled down in recent years. Now married with three kids, she says she’s outgrown the show’s drama — and the drinking.

“I have to do something more positive and fun with my life,” she said in a YouTube video she posted in August. 

When Polizzi announced her decision to quit filming in December 2019, she also said she wanted to spend more time with her children. “I don’t like partying three days in a row. It’s just not my life anymore. I want to be home with the kids,” she explained on her podcast, It’s Happening With Snooki & Joey.   

“At 32 years old and with three kids, if I’m doing a reality show I just want it to be fun and light-hearted, and lately it’s not like that and the show is getting so dramatic,” she added. 

‘Jersey Shore’ won’t be the same without Snooki, fans say

Fans have known for months that Snooki wouldn’t be returning for another season. Still, it was a shock not to see her in the first trailer for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 4, which MTV released on Oct. 26. Fans couldn’t help but comment on Snooki’s absence, with several arguing that the show wouldn’t be the same without her. 

“The vibe is just starting to change so much,” one person commented on Instagram.

“I don’t think I can watch without snooks,” another wrote.  

Is Pauly D’s girlfriend Nikki Hall trying to replace Snooki? 

Snooki isn’t on the upcoming season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, but there is a fresh face on the show. Pauly D’s girlfriend Nikki Hall (from Double Shot at Love) will be making an appearance. The two can be seen kissing in the teaser for the show. 

While some fans are eager to see Hall join the Jersey Shore gang, others are skeptical. 

“Please Take Nikki out and put snookie back in!” one person commented when Farley shared the trailer on Instagram. 

Some thought Hall hadn’t “earned” her spot on Jersey Shore, unlike The Situation’s wife Lauren Sorrentino. 

“Lauren took 10 years to make [it] onto the team and she is married to Mike,” someone wrote. “Nikki

Filming Begins Without Snooki and Fans Are ‘Heartbroken’

Fans of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 3 will never forget the speech heard around the world. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, and Deena Cortese gave a bridesmaid speech at Angelina Pivarnick‘s wedding in November 2019. However, it was so inappropriate that it leaked months before airing on MTV in June 2020. 

Shortly after the fallout from the speech, Snooki told her fans that she would not be returning to film another season. Viewers thought that she would eventually change her mind, but it looks like filming is plowing ahead without one beloved meatball.

After season 3, many fans thought Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley was done with ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’  

The drama at Pivarnick’s wedding divided the Jersey Shore roommates — especially the women. 

As the wedding episode aired, Farley took to Twitter to share her feelings. One tweet had many fans convinced she would not return for season 4 of the show, which wasn’t confirmed at the time. 

“I am way to ride or die to see you leave,” Farley tweeted, quoting Polizzi’s tweet about the finale. “If you’re done, I’m done. There’s no Jwoww without my Snooki.” 

Jenni ‘Jwoww’ Farley will be part of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 4

Farley shared the exciting news of her return to Jersey Shore: Family Vacation on her website, Miss Domesticated. 

“Aside from the re-launch of my site, I will be working on a few new projects that I’m very excited about,” Farley said. “YES, I will be getting ready to film another season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Despite the rumors, I’ve made the decision to stick with the show and reunite once again with my second family.” 

Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley had trouble watching season 4 of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ 

Farley recently posted a video on YouTube where she answered questions from Jersey Shore fans. One fan asked if Polizzi would return for season 4 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, to which Farley said she had been praying to the “tan gods above” that Polizzi would change her mind. 

“We make jokes all the time about her coming back,” she said. “As ride or die as we are, I still hear that she is not coming back and that’s devastating to me.”

“I couldn’t really watch the last season,” Farley admitted. “I did catch the very end because I wanted to make sure [it] played out accurately. All I asked from producers for myself to move forward is play it how it was. Don’t edit the speech. Don’t edit reactions. Just play it as it was because I have been living through seven months of hell. And they did.”

Sadly, showing the events of Pivarnick’s wedding as they happened wasn’t enough to make Polizzi want to return.

For Farley, having fans get to see how Pivarnick’s wedding played out was enough for her to want to return to the show.

Jersey Shore fans upset that Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi is not returning for Season 4 of Family Vacation

The season 4 premiere of Jersey Shore Family Vacation is set to air on Thursday, November 19.

However, fans are taking to social media to announce disappointment that OG cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will not be joining her shore family.

Since 2009, Snooki has become a fan favorite, and her crazy “meatball” antics are a beloved staple for the reality series.

Recently, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino shared a photo to his Instagram with the caption, “ITS HAPPENING #jsfamilyvacation4” as he and wife Lauren boarded a jet on their way to their filming location in Nevada.

Snooki commented on the post, “Yasss can’t wait to watch you both 💋 so proud of my fam.”  

This sparked an immediate fan response, with many posting about their displeasure in Snooki’s decision to call it quits. 

One fan wrote, “No Snooki? The show is pointless now without you.” with another adding, “won’t be the same without the queen ❤️.”

Backlash after Season 3

Snooki’s decision to leave is not entirely shocking, as the Season 3 finale ended in a blow out after the infamous speech given by Snooki, JWOWW, and Deena, roasting Angelina at her own wedding.

While meant to be a joke, the speech was not well received by Angelina or her wedding guests.

The speech ignited a feud between the girls, with Angelina proclaiming they ruined her wedding, leaving Snooki in tears during her final confessional.

“I just love my roomies, always. Jersey Shore is literally my life,” she said sobbing. “I never would have met my best friends, so the fact that it has to end like this, for me, it really sucks.”

Jersey Shore fans are not the only ones upset about Snooki’s departure.

JWOWW took to Twitter: “I watched my best friend quit because she couldn’t handle the stress. I stayed up so many nights hearing Deena cry over being called names she didn’t deserve. All while Angelina basked in the attention she was given”.

It is unclear whether the castmates made amends with Angelina before filming.

Production during pandemic

MTV announced the cast would take over a resort and be placed in their own quarantine “bubble.”

The cast is regularly being tested for COVID-19 and following all federal and state safety guidelines to keep everyone safe and healthy.

The cast includes Deena Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Angelina Pivarnick, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

Unlike other seasons, extended family members of the cast will stay with them in the Shore bubble.

While being isolated during a pandemic is sure to make for an interesting dynamic, one thing is for certain, “jerzdays” will be different without everyone’s favorite meatball, Snooki.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 4 premieres on Thursday, November 19, at 8/7c on MTV.
