Buff muscles, fitted shirts, rigidly-sculpted hair, perfect tans — what’s not to love about these party-hardy boys featured on MTV’s hit show “Jersey Shore”? It’d sure be a wake up call to see them in even 10 years. If everyone lived like they do, everyone would die. Well maybe not die, but their lifestyle definitely does some irreversible damage stemming from their daily routine of GTL, which stands for gym, tanning, laundry. As ridiculous as this may seem, a lot of college students are following on the trail blazed by Ronnie, The Situation, Pauly D and Vinny.
