The Dutch Approach To “Jersey Shore”

The Dutch Approach To "Jersey Shore"

Last night I found myself wasting a good chunk of my night glued to a television show that wasn’t even in a language I understood: “Oh Oh Cherso,” which is essentially the Dutch version of “Jersey Shore.”

From what I understand from not understanding a word of it: Like 10 people from The Haag (which apologies to my ancestry is one of the ugliest named cities in the world) are followed around on camera while at a Greek beach town where all they do is get drunk, fight with one another, and have a lot of sex. Which sounds more or less like what we’re used to except: It’s WAY more explicit in terms of sex (the episode I watched included a couple penises), and it actually has a gay character – albeit an extraordinarily unappealing one. He’s the one on the far left and is essentially a exaggerated, trailer trash Dutch version of Christian Siriano.

Watch this random episode and tell me you aren’t hooked!
