In the episode, Angelina and Sammi arrived together at the group’s vacation rental, and the former Jersey Shore star’s opening line couldn’t have been better.

“Hey guys, sorry I’m late,” Sammi told the group. And Pauly D couldn’t withhold his bewilderment. “Is this real? Are you a hologram? Is this AI?”
