Watch audition videos for Toronto’s Jersey Shore
Last night, Lake Shore, this city’s answer to Jersey Shore, posted a “webisode” of the audition day on its Web site, and it’s as smarmy as you’d expect—bad extensions, big boobs, buzz cuts, bronzer and Lycra. Of 25 finalists, 17 have been chosen for the show (one is revealed on-line every night). Viewers will be able to vote on-line for the contestants they think will give the show a “sexy, distinctive flavour.” The audition videos indicate that ethnicity will play a big role in the show (look at how diverse Toronto is!), and the judges are more insipid than the contestants. Watch the auditions, after the jump.
Vonny The-Kendoll Foreverfly is Guyanese-Jamaican and gay. His talent is “flipping” straight guys.
Joey Violin is Italian. Witness him try to grind solo. Awkward.
Kali “Kalifornia” Eliopolous is “The Greek-Filipino.” Her craziest moment was getting into a hot tub full of naked guys.
Robby Simpson is “The Scotsman.” His passion is working out.
Roxie “Persia” Ramedani feels personally obligated to share her opinions with the world.

Well Said Phil!
Just need to look a the judges to know what type of show this is going to be!
@ Phil and Neidi,
Just an FYI; there are plenty of supremely obnoxious 416er’s in this city as well. I’m willing to bet that this cast is equal parts 905 and 416. Stop being typical, pretentious 416er’s. This act is getting really tired, and you’re giving all Torontonians a bad image.
Most Torontonians are people who grew up in the 905 (or suburban 416) and have moved into the city anyways. Same diff.
If you want to generalize, people who stay in the 905 instead of moving downtown are more frequently the type seen in these audition tapes. (But, of course, there are always exceptions.)
You have to keep in mind that Jersey Shore is based on the premise that its cast comes from an Italian culture (where it’s common to live at home until marriage.) Now that they’ve left the roost for the first time, it’s crazy party time!
It is a shame that they think that this is showing how diverse Toronto is. It is a bunch of kids…not even adults yet with different nationalities who have all conformed to be the same…is that diversity? No. By the way, I am a 905-er (hate to admit it) and 19 years old, pretty much the same age as these “diverse young Torontonians”. Yes, the stereotype is clearly proving itself correct here with these kids…but there are some good seeds out there in the 905 who aspire to be a 416, and have all the same qualities minus the area code.
This is another poisonous concoction of Woodu, Weed, Pimps, b…..s and confused kids that some media jokers who call themselves artists managed to make out of the world’s richest cultures meet in this City that is longing to be the greatest cultural Oasis. You imbeciles should exchange your positions with people such as dry wall guys or brick layers to become more useful to this country. Let real artists shape up the future of media and arts.
Could the judges take a shower prior to the next taping? sick grease balls. will never watch this show.

Ken Doll is hillarious!
I find it interesting that none of them are described as “the Canadian” How about at least someone who has North American heritage.
the imnice guy is cute:):):):):

I think its a dumb idea …i wont watch it…Jersey Shore Rocks and will always rock…
I’m a Toronto-Beach Girl and I am so ashamed that this is truly becoming a show. It paints real torontonians in a bad light.
