MTV's mega hit reality show Jersey Shore aired for six seasons from 2009 to 2012. It followed the lives of eight housemates spending their summers together mainly in Seaside Heights, NJ (aka the Jersey Shore), but the show also filmed in Miami, Fla. and Florence, Italy.

The series was known for its focus on partying, relationships, and the cast's unique personalities.

It's no secret that multiple cast members dated or hooked up throughout the OG series. Some of these dalliances were seen on the show, and others were behind the scenes and revealed later—sometimes even years later. So, let's get into the nitty-gritty. Who has dated and/or hooked up who within the Jersey Shore franchise?

Sammi and Ronnie dated for eight years. Sammi also claims to have made out with Mike.

Even if you've only watched a few episodes of Jersey Shore, you likely picked up on Sam and Ron being a couple throughout the series. And what a rollercoaster these two were! They dated on and off for eight years and broke up for good in 2019. Ron had been unfaithful to Sammi multiple times, and during Season 2, Snooki and JWoww wanted to warn Sam that her man had been up to no good, but they didn't want to ruin their friendship with him. The ladies decided to anonymously write a now-famous letter to Sam on Microsoft Word about his infidelities.

This letter, which has since become a viral meme, read: "Sam, The first night at Bed, when you left, Ron made out with 2 girls and put his head between a waitress's breasts. Also was grinding with multiple fat women. When you left crying at Klutch, Ron was holding hands and dancing with a female and took down her number. Multiple people in the house know; therefore, you should know the truth."

Snooki and Vinny had a different situation, as they continually flirted with each other throughout the series. In Season 2, although Snooki was in a relationship with another man named Emilio, she gets into bed and has sex with Vinny for the first time. She does it again three episodes later. They continue to have impromptu hookups during the series.

When Vinny wasn't invited to Snooki's wedding to Jionni LaValle, many fans thought it was because they had history. However, Snooki confirmed that they had a falling out after he started using their hookups as standup comedy material.

"That’s why I kind of stopped talking to him for a little while," she told Life & Style in a 2018 interview. "Just because I get it, it was in the past, whatever — but to use me for comic relief? Like, knowing that it’s not cool to talk about that anymore, you know, when I’m married — that’s just not really something a friend would do, you know?"

Snooki and Vinny have since reconciled.

In Mike's memoir, he reflected on the fact that he and Angelina kept it quiet to MTV that they did know each other before being cast for the show. "[We] thought that would hurt the chances of being on a show that was, like, anonymous or something — you know, like, ‘Oh, all these people in the house, and everybody doesn’t know each other,'" he explained.
