In light of Pauly D's and Vinny's new spinoff show "Double Shot at Love", here are some of the most memorable moments from the original show which made them famous.

*SPOILER ALERTS*

10. "Cabs are Here"

in season 3 episode 7, Sam and Ron finally ran the course of their toxic relationship. Through the ups and the downs of the 3 seasons, the fighting seemed too repetitive. However, in this particular episode, Sam decides to leave and go home in order to relieve the stress from the constant fighting. This was a monumental moment in the show because it pointed to a better future and eventual healing of Ron and Sam's relationship.

9. "Back to the Shore"

In season 3 episode 1, after leaving Miami with tensions between the girls due to situations between Ron and Sam a fight immediately breaks out. Sam and Jwoww end up fighting because words were said about Ron and Sam's relationship and the fact that Sam had previously ended her friendships between the girls in the house. This episode was a monumental fight between the girls which set the scene for season 3.

8. "Free Vinny"

In season 5 episode 4, the house realizes how much they miss and need Vinny back in the house to function normally. Vinny had previously left the house due to his anxiety and homesickness. The group decided they had enough of missing their best friend and went to go kidnap him. This was a monumental part of the show because it demonstrated how much of a family the members of the house were. Also, it was priceless to see Pauly D and Vinny reunite.

7. "We are a Family"

in season 5 episode 11, the shore family experience Hurricane Irene. Even though the season was filled with a bunch of drama, the hurricane brought the family closer together. This episode was exciting yet sad to watch because of all the drama and distress.

6. "Where's My Boyfriend?"

During season 4 episode 8, the gang is in Italy. Snooki has Jionni come to Italy to spend time with her. During this episode, Snooki has too much fun at the club and not only makes Jionni run out of the club because of her, but she gets into a heated argument with Jwoww. This episode is important because it was the first time we saw Jionni and one of the biggest arguments between Jwoww and Snooki. Ultimately, everything ends up okay but the episode definitely kept the audience on the edge of seats.

5. "Free Snooki"

In season 3 episode 4, Not only does Snooki get released from jail due to public intoxication, but Jwoww undergoes a rough breakup with her ex-boyfriend, Tom. The breakup results in Jwoww's house being left destroyed and her dogs abandoned. Snooki and Jwoww need to go rescue the dogs and clean the house from how Tom left it. In this episode, the audience gets to see how close Jenni and Nicole are to each other, which is very heartwarming.

4. "Toxic Shots Syndrome"

In season 6 episode 3, Snooki announces her pregnancy to the gang. At this point, the family becomes closer together and understand everyone will soon be starting a new chapter in their lives. Snooki leaves the original house and moves next door, so they can all still be close. This foreshadows the show coming to an end but is bittersweet.

3. "And the Wall Won"

During season 4 episode 5, Mike and Ron get into a huge argument. This argument results in Mike slamming his head against the wall in order to prove his dominance in the SITUATION. Ultimately, Mike goes to the hospital and needs to remain in a neck brace for 7 days. This episode left the audience wondering how the rest of the season would play out and if Mike was going to be okay. Everyone in the house was emotional and felt the argument between the two, which made the experience for all of them worse.

2. "Breaking Up"

During season 2 episode 4, Snooki and Jwoww take it upon themselves to write an "anonymous letter" to Sam in order to tell her about Ron cheating on her. This letter was made in all good intentions, obviously, but made a framework for the rest of the season. This letter became a historic part of the family falling apart and getting back together and will forever be remembered when thinking about the show.

1. "New Family"

Season 1 episode 1 is where it all started, so obviously it comes as the number one most memorable moment on the show. This episode introduced us to the cast which we know and love today. Little did all of those little guidos and guidettes know they would become a family and continue on to have more seasons and multiple spinoffs of the show.

I Went To "The Bachelor" Auditions

And here's why you won’t be seeing me on TV.

It’s finally time to admit my guilty pleasure: I have always been a huge fan of The Bachelor.

I can readily admit that I’ve been a part of Bachelor fantasy leagues, watch parties, solo watching — you name it, I’ve gone the whole nine yards. While I will admit that the show can be incredibly trashy at times, something about it makes me want to watch it that much more. So when I found out that The Bachelor was holding auditions in Houston, I had to investigate.

While I never had the intention of actually auditioning, there was no way I would miss an opportunity to spend some time people watching and check out the filming location of one of my favorite TV shows.

The casting location of The Bachelor, The Downtown Aquarium in Houston, was less than two blocks away from my office. I assumed that I would easily be able to spot the audition line, secretly hoping that the endless line of people would beg the question: what fish could draw THAT big of a crowd?

As I trekked around the tanks full of aquatic creatures in my bright pink dress and heels (feeling somewhat silly for being in such nice clothes in an aquarium and being really proud of myself for somewhat looking the part), I realized that these auditions would be a lot harder to find than I thought.

Finally, I followed the scent of hairspray leading me up the elevator to the third floor of the aquarium.

The doors slid open. I found myself at the end of a large line of 20-something-year-old men and women and I could feel all eyes on me, their next competitor. I watched as one woman pulled out her travel sized hair curler, someone practiced answering interview questions with a companion, and a man (who was definitely a little too old to be the next bachelor) trying out his own pick-up lines on some of the women standing next to him.

I walked to the end of the line (trying to maintain my nonchalant attitude — I don’t want to find love on a TV show). As I looked around, I realized that one woman had not taken her eyes off of me. She batted her fake eyelashes and looked at her friend, mumbling something about the *grumble mumble* “girl in the pink dress.”

I felt a wave of insecurity as I looked down at my body, immediately beginning to recognize the minor flaws in my appearance.

The string hanging off my dress, the bruise on my ankle, the smudge of mascara I was sure I had on the left corner of my eye. I could feel myself begin to sweat. These women were all so gorgeous. Everyone’s hair was perfectly in place, their eyeliner was done flawlessly, and most of them looked like they had just walked off the runway. Obviously, I stuck out like a sore thumb.

I walked over to the couches and sat down. For someone who for the most part spent most of the two hours each Monday night mocking the cast, I was shocked by how much pressure and tension I felt in the room.

A cop, stationed outside the audition room, looked over at me. After a brief explanation that I was just there to watch, he smiled and offered me a tour around the audition space. I watched the lines of beautiful people walk in and out of the space, realizing that each and every one of these contestants to-be was fixated on their own flaws rather than actually worrying about “love.”

Being with all these people, I can see why it’s so easy to get sucked into the fantasy. Reality TV sells because it’s different than real life. And really, what girl wouldn’t like a rose?

Why was I so intimidated by these people? Reality TV is actually the biggest oxymoron. In real life, one person doesn’t get to call all the shots. Every night isn’t going to be in a helicopter looking over the south of France. A real relationship depends on more than the first impression.

The best part of being in a relationship is the reality. The best part about yourself isn’t your high heels. It’s not the perfect dress or the great pick-up lines. It’s being with the person that you can be real with. While I will always be a fan of The Bachelor franchise, this was a nice dose of reality. I think I’ll stick to my cheap sushi dates and getting caught in the rain.

But for anyone who wants to be on The Bachelor, let me just tell you: Your mom was right. There really are a lot of fish in the sea. Or at least at the aquarium.
