Jersey Shore stars' new reality: Unemployment

After six seasons, the reality TV series Jersey Shore is coming to an end. It's been a lucrative run, but what will Snooki, the Situation and the other cast members do after the party's over?

Samantha 'Sammi' Giancola


Claim to fame: Dubbing herself "the sweetheart" but never acting like one. Being ostracized by other cast members. Wallowing in a mutually destructive relationship with Ronnie, who once threw her bed out the window while bellowing like Stanley from A Streetcar Named Desire.

Before the Shore: She was a soccer-playing college student.

Side projects: Launched a cologne in 2011 called Dangerous. Also made a cameo in The Three Stooges movie, along with her fellow Shore-mates. Her publicist says she's been paid at least $10,000 for appearances.

Post-Shore career prospects: Sammi has a line of fitness products, including sports bras and yoga pants with a built-in "booty lift." But her publicist says, "She's the one member of the cast who hasn't manipulated her brand as much as anyone else has."
