'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation' Season 5: Mike Sorrentino debuts blonde look at son's baptism, fans say 'weirdest thing'
'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation' has returned with an all-new season, and fans are overjoyed. The new season of the show aired on Thursday night, June 23, with Mike Sorrentino turning heads at his own son's baptism.
Episode 15 was titled 'Livin' La Vida Loca,' and it showed Mike and his wife Lauren celebrating the baptism of their baby Romeo. The couple went completely insane to celebrate their son's special day. The baptism was unlike any other on the show. Mike went blonde to match the rest of his family, in addition to turning his son's baptism into a wedding celebration.

Despite Lauren's objections, Mike enlists the assistance of two of his best friends, Vinny and Pauly, to help him with his hair. Pauly believes Mike doesn't change his appearance much, so when the option to make some changes arose, they didn't decline. While Lauren enjoys a ladies' day out with Nikki Hall, the lads in the home dress up in 'Breaking Bad' style to modify Mike's appearance. Vinny couldn't help but compare him to a "fat old Eminem" once they were through. Fans on social media couldn't help but comment on Mike's new look. One fan wrote: "Lol I actually like Mikes blonde hair. #JerseyShoreFamilyVacation".

With Mike kept repeating his new favorite phrase, "Blondes have more fun," and comparing himself to Johnny Bravo, fans on social media chimed in as well: "@ItsTheSituation since going blond #jerseyshorefamilyvacation."

Another fan was quick to call for a t-shirt with the catchphrase on, as their tweet read: "Blondes have more fun Cue a new t-shirt from @ItsTheSituation #JSFamilyVacation #jerseyshorefamilyvacation."

However, one fan felt the blonde look actually made Mike look younger. They tweeted saying: "Why does @ItsTheSituation look oddly younger with blonde hair? @JerseyShore #Jerseyshore #jerseyshorefamilyvacation".

Nevertheless, not everyone was on board with Mike's transformation. A fan tweeted: "Now why Mike dyed his hair blonde #jerseyshorefamilyvacation #Jerseyshore".

One viewer called out Pauly for commenting on Mike's hair: "Pauly did not just say mike’s hair never changes when his is exactly the same #jerseyshorefamilyvacation".

The couple suited up in their wedding attire for the baptism. Mike explains that his wife, Lauren, wanted to go all out for Romeo's special day. He goes on to say that it is the most important event they have ever done since it turned out to be a baptism disguised as a wedding. Vinny was perplexed when Mike and Lauren entered the church in their wedding attire. He felt like he was at their wedding again and refers to them as "extra AF."
As the rest of the gang arrived for the meal following the baptism, they couldn't help but notice the spectacle. Jenni "Jwoww" states that Mike and Lauren are enjoying the "bougie life" based on the decor, since the couple's events are like small weddings. Nikki informs Pauly that, like the Kardashians, a photo booth was set up at the party. She also mentions a balloon arch and how attendees should take their place cards as soon as they enter the venue. After hearing all of this, Pauly describes Mike and Lauren as the "definition of over the top and almost too much." When Mike showed off his new blonde hair, the rest of the housemates had a lot to say. Deena refers to him as "slim shady," while Jenni refers to him as "Eminem having a midlife crisis." She does, however, compliment Mike on the feast he arranged. In a confessional, Pauly also says that Mike never goes cheap when it comes to a decent supper.
The gang discusses the lavish spread and how ludicrous it appeared to have a wedding cake at the celebration with the child's parents dressed in wedding attire. Fans on social media also had a lot to say about the couple's dress code. One Twitter user wrote: "Wearing your wedding dress to your son’s baptism is the weirdest thing I ever saw. #jerseyshorefamilyvacation".

Another fan had a different theory for the situation. Their tweet read: "Lauren just wanted to prove she could fit into her wedding dress. No other reason to wear it to a baptism. #JSFamilyvacation #jerseyshorefamilyvacation #jerseyshore".
