Fist pump while you can.

The Jersey Shore's casting director, Doron Ofir, tells Blackbook magazine that the entire cast will be replaced for the third season. (Among the shows Ofir has cast: A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila, Paris Hilton's My New BFF, RuPaul's Drag Race and Millionaire Matchmaker.)

A rep for MTV denies Ofir's statement, and tells UsMagazine.com, "We have started general casting for Jersey Shore Season 2 in case we want to explore the option of bringing on new cast members."

Snooki, The Situation, JWOWW, Pauly D, Sammi and Ronnie reportedly demanded a big pay raise after the first season became MTV's highest-rated series. TMZ.com reported the group received a $10,000 signing bonus and $5,000 per episode for season 2, which premieres July 29.

One castmate who won't be too bummed to be off the show: JWOWW, who "cried her eyes out" when she found out the series had been renewed.
