The Pauly D Project The Pauly D Project

Jersey Shore's first official spin-off is upon us: The Pauly D Project, starring Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio, premieres Thursday at 10:30/9:30c on MTV.

Like Jersey Shore, the series prominently features three recurring themes: beats, booze and blowouts. But unlike Jersey Shore, this show refreshingly acknowledges that its star is famous — and celebrates it.

Jason "JROC" Craig
His Role According to Pauly
: "JROC? He is responsible for all of 'dis. Just like we run Rhode Island — like, we're the guys to know — this is the guy."
Why You'll Love Him: We don't get to see much of him in the first few episodes, but it seems as though he's being a pretty gracious Vegas host, making sure the boys are taken care of.   
Why You Won't
: He's known as "Mr. Vegas" — enough said.
Memorable Quote: "Everybody's gonna be there, and everybody's watching. I want you to be you, do you, have a good time."
