For better or for worse, the MTV reality show Jersey Shore was a complete game-changer – not least because it made the likes of Snooki, JWoww and The Situation household names.

But, eventually, America lost interest in all the drinking and puking and smushing, and the show faded away. So whatever became of the ten fabled Shore stars – only a handful of whom were actually even from New Jersey?
