Jersey Shore Season 3: MTV surprised cast with new housemate, Deena Cortese

Dec 22, 2010

By now it's no secret that Jersey Shore Season 3 includes a new housemate - Deena Nicole Cortese - but today MTV confirms the other housemates were shocked by her arrival when they returned to Seaside Heights. has learned, with the exception of Snooki, producers of the hugely popular reality show didn't tell the other housemates that Deena was gonna be moving in. "None of them know Snooki has invited her BFF Deena Nicole Cortese to fill the void (left by Angelina's departure)," MTV confirms.

The first time The Situation, Pauly D, Vinny, Ronnie, Sammi and JWoWW will meet Deena is during the Jersey Shore Season 3 premiere. While Deena knows her housemates personalities from watching the two previous seasons of Jersey Shore - they don't know her - and that leads to a blowout fight on the first night.

Deena actually submitted a Jersey Shore audition tape before the first series ever premiered in 2009, but was passed over by Jersey Shore casting directors. But when Angelina stormed out of the shore house in Miami, that opened the door for Deena, who got her second chance. "This cast is about to double their pleasure because like her diminutive, fireball bestie Snooki, Deena is going to prove that big fun and big drama continue to come in small packages," the network confirms in a statement.

Jersey Shore Season 3 premieres on MTV on January 6, 2011 at 10pm ET/PT.
