#TBT: Remember The Jersey Shore Cast's First Time At The MTV Movie Awards?

You know, back when the smush room was actually used

Way back before a bacon cheeseburger deluxe equated to Mike living his best life and long before Snooki and JWOWW were bona fide mama bears, the Jersey Shore cast attended the MTV Movie Awards for the very first time.

Let us set the scene, shall we? Season 1 of the hit series had just wrapped (and forever changed the meaning of the word "grenade"), and Snooki co-hosted the pre-show alongside MTV News correspondent Sway. The guidos and their tans were all there -- Angelina included. My, how times (and poufs) have changed!

As we gear up for the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation cast to attend this year's Movie and TV Awards (airing June 18), let's take a gander down the sandy shore at their inaugural appearance eight years ago:

  • What catfights? We're all best friends. Ha ha, jay kay. (And no, that's not a doll. That's really Sammi.)

  • Do you recognize this 'keto guido'?

  • Who wore the bejeweled nude minidress better -- Katy Perry or Snooki?

  • The days before JWOWW wore spectacles and was married with two kids.

  • We love us some Pauly D this time of year!
  • Besties for life. Or at least since 2010.

  • Ronnie, minus the guylights.

  • Snooki and the Hilton sisters? Party's (really) here!
