There has been a run of shows about people from Jersey lately...Jersey Shore, Jerseylicious, Jersey Couture, etc...my questions is: do people outside of NJ REALLY think we are all like the people on those shows? Italian (goodfellas/mafia type italian), big hair, too much make-up, too much bronzer and fake tanning, over the top expensive fashion, loud mouths, etc. I am from Jersey. I have lived here my whole life (minus a few years in my early 20's) and I can ASSURE you that I don't know anyone that even remotely resembles the people that are on these shows...the types of people on Jersey shows are more similar to people from Staten and Long Islands (New York). And the whole fist pump thing? We do that as a joke because I've never witnessed anyone do it seriously.
