So what makes the show different than its Seaside Heights predecessors? The cast of eight young adults, from ages 21 to 25 sat down with Us to explain.

“It’s a completely different part of the country. Obviously we’re going to be different. We’re not from Jersey,” Gus Smyrnios clarified. “Every part of country, people are different. We’re trying to show how people are on the Floribama side, the Southeast region.”

Kirk Medas further explained: “They fist pump, we dab!”

When asked if they see themselves relating to the Jersey cast, several cast members gave a resounding ‘No!’

 Though they may not be seeking advice from Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, they did admit to watching Jersey Shore when it was on. Tallahassee native Smyrnios said, “I wasn’t allowed to watch Jersey Shore growing up. I would sneak at night and turn it on and my mom would come in and I’d have to switch the channel real fast.”
