Jersey Shore's Ronnie Ortiz-Magro left off new season poster as fans think troubled star will 'never return to show'

JERSEY Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is absent from the new series poster in a snub which fans believe signals he is "done" with the programme completely.

Broadcaster MTV recently revealed the 2022 instalment with a Tweet introducing Jersey Shore Family Vacation's season five crew – with Ronnie, 36, a complete no-show.

This added yet more fuel to the fire after reality TV show previously speculated the cast was dropping subtle hints about Ronnie's exit.

Ronnie announced his break from the show in May after he was arrested in April for domestic violence in an incident involving fiancee Saffire.

He released a statement at the time, saying: "After talking to the team at MTV, we have mutually agreed that I will step away from the show while I seek medical treatment for mental health issues that I've ignored too long.

"My number one goal now is facing my struggled head on."

In May, sources told The Sun: "The entire case has said they don't want to film with him because they believe he is not mentally stable. They feel his is a ticking time bomb and he makes all of them look bad."

He previously said he hoped to "hopefully be back by the end of season five."

Worried fans have now called out his absence from the show pic – which the rest of the cast have re-posted to their Instagram Stories.

One wrote on Twitter: "Why is Ronnie not in this pic?" as another quizzed: "Where's Ronnie at I don't see him?

"A fan wrote: "Is Ronnie done with the show? Maybe Sam comes back," before an MTV viewer commented: "No Ron Ron? No thank you."

One then added: "I dont see @RealRonnieMagro on there hope he is doing well and taking the time to do what he needs to do for himself good for you ron.

"Still going to be a lit season lets go."

The outlet lists Ronnie as part of the cast.


Earlier this week, speculation of Ronnie's permanent absence started swirling after Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino shared a photo from son Romeo's baptism.

Ronnie, 36, was noticeably absent from the snap, which featured the caption: "We don't have friends we only have family."

The picture made its way from Instagram to Reddit, where fans questioned Ronnie's future on the show.

One commenter wrote: "Yeah, Ronnie's no longer part of the fam, officially… it seems."

Another Reddit user wrote: "Pretty sure it was filmed for the show, so no, no Ron."

A third fan jokingly speculated that Ronnie was there, he just wasn't pictured, writing: "Ron's crying in a nearby bathroom," a nod to some of his past behavior on the show.


He attended court in Los Angeles in September, at which time he was facing up to 30 days in jail.

The judge allowed him to go free, asking him to take 26 parenting classes instead.

Ronnie was also placed on a three-year protective order where he is prohibited from harassing or intimidating Saffire.

At the time, Ronnie had recently completed a rehab program in Florida, which is why he was permitted to skip jail.
