‘Jersey Shore’: We Get the Season Finale Scoop from Sammi, Vinny, and Deena
Sammi, Vinny, and Deena dish on this week's finale (MTV)
After spending all season clubbing and fighting, the roommates decide to get a little Italian culture this week by taking a guided tour of Florence's art and architecture. "Our last couple days in Italy, we got to travel around and see Italy for what it is," Sammi says. But don't worry, this isn't exactly PBS; Team Meatball's idea of art appreciation is admiring the rear end on Michelangelo's "David." (That bod of his would make him a real hit at Karma, we're guessing.)

Of course, there's in-house conflict to resolve this week, too: namely, the rest of the roommates finally getting fed up with The Situation and his dumb antics. "You're really gonna see people get frustrated with him, because we've just had enough of it," Sammi says. Vinny agrees, saying Mike has "always been a little bit of a villain. He likes that role... and now it's all coming back in his face." But Deena says Mike will always be a part of the "Shore" family: "As much as we all hate him, we still love him... he's like the brother that we all needed a little space from."
Mike tells Snooki he might not join them back in Jersey in this season finale clip:
Considering all the drama that went down this season (and how ready they all seemed to go home), we weren't sure the roommates even enjoyed their Italian adventure. "We loved Italy," Sammi insists, "but by the end, we were all extremely homesick and ready to go home." Vinny will always cherish getting the chance to visit his relatives in Sicily, though. He calls the Sicily trip "probably one of the highlights of my life... I'm only the second grandchild out of 50 to go there, so it was a proud moment."
One welcome change this season: We got a break from the usual Ron-and-Sam relationship drama. Sammi admits their peaceful co-existence was a "new twist," but don't expect the Ron-Sam rollercoaster to end anytime soon. "You know how me and Ron are: One day we're together, one day we're not." (Yes, Sam, we know -- all too well.) Meanwhile, Deena says she left her crush on Pauly D back in Italy: "I was just so homesick, I was confusing the friendship we have with real feelings. But once we got back to Jersey, that kind of disappeared."
And don't look for any grand romance between Snooki and Vinny: He says that all their hookups are "just kind of a freak thing that happens... We'll always remain friends, but there's no real physical or emotional connection there." (Um, we think Snooki might beg to differ on the "physical" side of that, Vin.) Meanwhile, he and Pauly are keeping their bromance alive, even when the cameras aren't rolling. "We both travel a lot, but whenever we can bump into each other, we always make it a point to chill together. We still keep in touch; we talk every day."
