Cast of Toronto’s Lake Shore even more despicable than cast of Jersey Shore

Toronto Facebook news feeds were in a frenzy yesterday, not in response to anything of worth—like Movember or even Keenan Cahill—but to the much hyped Lake Shore, Canada’s attempt at Jersey Shore. The show, which conducted casting earlier this summer, just dropped this video (or “sizzle reel”) of the desperate attention seekers sassy characters who make up the cast. We subjected ourselves to the whole eight and a half minutes so you don’t have to.

Picture identical condo party rooms, dudes who party with their shirts off (hey, the Guv can get hot, broham) and plenty of peacocking. It seems the only thing that will bond this group is wearing sunglasses indoors and a (presumable) love of Ed Hardy.

The Situation may have some competition from Tommy Hollywood (or as Lake Shore dubs him, “the Czech”), who has given himself a staggering five nicknames: Lake Shore Tommy, Pretty Boy Floyd, Money Mayweather Tommy and King of the Hood. And reality television (excuse us, webisodes) is nothing without a little dose of Haterade, so we weren’t shocked to hear Sibel (“the Turk”) claim she “hates everyone equally (insert record scratch here), especially Jews”; Downtown D “the Albanian” say, “You can be gay, as long as you don’t get anywhere near me”; and Robyn “the Jew” dish that Downtown D isn’t “confident, he’s cocky.”

We’ve often wondered if there is something easier than shooting fish in a barrel. Turns out, it’s making fun of these losers. So we’ll leave it to Gawker and the American media outlets, who can finally cry, “Sure, they’ve got free health care, but have you seen this?”
