The Pauly D Project premiere was a 30 minute reminder of why Pauly D is the Jersey Shore fan favorite and the first to land a spinoff. Now with his longtime friends Pauly D is definitely in his element which makes for some good TV. Here are the top five moments from The Pauly D Project Season 1 Episode 1.
Pauly D’s equipment malfunction – When DJ Pauly D’s equipment malfunctions during his intense audition at The Palms you can almost see his heart beating out of his chest. For a guy whose nerves don’t normally appear rattled on camera, Pauly’s emotions are raw. “This is really embarrassing. Like I’m stressed out. This is almost unbearable,” he admits. Thankfully, DJ Biggie has his back and after a matter of minutes – but what must have felt like much longer – Pauly D’s fist is back in the air and the music is once again pumping.
Biggie’s Sweating – To see Biggie sweat over how he’s gonna tell his longtime girlfriend, MaryJane, about moving to Vegas is somehow endearing. While the boys are pressing his buttons about ‘getting his permission slip signed’ Biggie is clearly nervous about how MJ will react. While Pauly and Ryan break the ice with some herpes jokes, MaryJane hands out her own funny one-liners. “No no strip clubs, no whores…or you’ll never be able to reproduce ever in your life.”
Jerry’s Shower Cap – Whether he was trying to ‘c— block’ as Ryan suggested or just enjoy a late night swim, Jerry in a shower cap, robe and bathing suit is just plain hilarious. Three’s company…but not for long.
The Pauly D Project Episode 1: Best quotes from Pauly & Co.
The Good Son – The scene in which Pauly D says goodbye to his dad, who recently suffered a stroke, shows a different side of the MTV reality star. It was clear the decision to leave his dad was a tough one, but it was also evident where Pauly gets his sense of humor. The headache’s worth it, Mr. DelVecchio.
Providence Sendoff – It was only appropriate that Providence send off their one and only DJ Pauly D – and what a sendoff it was. You could feel the love not only from the hometown crowd, but from Pauly’s co-stars. Both Jerry and Biggie got emotional – seeming to realize at that one moment that their life would never be the same and recognizing they owe it all to the man with the blowout. “I wake up every morning and thank God he’s had these opportunities and he’s brought me along.” I mean how can you not love Biggie when he says that kinda stuff?
The Pauly D Project airs Thursdays at 10:30pm ET/PT on MTV.
