(Newser) – If, for some reason, you want to live out your own Jersey Shore fantasy, all you need is $2,500 a night. That’s how much the Seaside Heights home where the reality show is taped rents for, according to the AP, which uses a bunch of terms in its article that are basically incomprehensible to anyone not familiar with the show. (For example, renters of the home will have access to “the duck phone” and “the Smush Room.”)

And, yes, people do actually pony up the dough for a night of quasi-celebrity. “Whenever we went out on the deck or did anything, right away cameras were flashing and people were saying ‘Hey, I think it’s one of them,’” one renter tells the Asbury Park Press. “It's like you are buying 15 minutes of fame.” Another says that she enjoyed her stay, but made sure to bring her own sheets.
