Mix up another batch of Ron Ron Juice.

The tanned misfits of "Jersey Shore" are down for a potential fourth season of their popular MTV reality series, which documents their hard-partying, slap-tastic lifestyle while living under one roof. Paul "Pauly D" Del Vecchio and his castmates said last month that they haven't signed up for another installment but would be juiced for more T-Shirt Time.

"There's been talk about doing another season," said Del Vecchio. "If it happens, I'd love to do it."

Story: 'Jersey Shore' spinoff would be all Snooki

Del Vecchio's dream edition? Transplanting the mostly Italian-American cast to Italy. Jenni "J-Woww" Farley, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, the hulk known for concocting his blend of alcoholic juice, share the sentiment, though Ron Ron warned he's "only got two more left in me, and then I'll go do 'Dancing with the Stars.'"

Before the cast could return to The Motherland or the ballroom, their Miami-set sophomore edition, which has continued to dominate in the ratings, will end Thursday with an episode featuring the gang road-tripping to Florida's Everglades for an encounter with, as Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi calls them, "crocodillies." Then, they'll be reunited on an Oct. 28 episode.

Polizzi and Del Vecchio are rumored to be filming their own MTV spin-offs, but the network declined to confirm any new commitments to programming related to "Jersey Shore." The cast's much-ballyhooed return to the boardwalk last July in Seaside Heights, N.J., will set the stage for the upcoming third season, likely to begin airing early next year.

"It's the same deal," said Vinny Guadagnino. "It's the 'Jersey Shore' you know and love. We never fail to entertain. We have a new roommate, and we stay true to who we are. Seaside Heights is not a complicated place. There's like three bars, three clubs and that's what you see, and that's what we keep doing. It gets funnier and funnier by the second."

Angelina Pivarnick, the feisty outsider who battled throughout the second season with the other self-proclaimed "guidos" and "guidettes," was replaced for the third edition by Deena Nicole Cortese, the "partner in crime" of Snooki, who recently completed community service stemming from her arrest for being drunk and disorderly on the beach in July.

Since the cast of "Jersey Shore" last partied together at the MTV Video Music Awards, the foul-mouthed twenty- and thirtysomethings have been working hard to extend their 15 minutes of just-add-bronzer fame. Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino tangoed on and off "Dancing with the Stars," while J-Woww brawled on an episode of TNA Wrestling's "iMPACT!"

"I think we're all doing our own thing and taking this opportunity and making the best of it," said Ortiz-Magro, who is currently appearing in "Just Dance 2" commercials. "This gave us the chance to get our foot in the door, and I think we're all doing pretty good. We kicked the door wide open, and now we're just doing whatever we want at this point."

That mostly means hawking clothes, energy drinks, makeup, health supplements and an array of other products, including novels. Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, is scheduled to release Polizzi's "Shore Thing" in January. Just don't expect the cast to get into politics. Ortiz-Magro isn't interested in being a full-time role model.

"I'm not running for president," he said. "My job is to be in the shore house and have a good time, and that's what I'm doing, and there happens to be cameras around filming me. My job is to have a good time. It's not to be reserved. It's to go out and have a good time, go clubbing, go to the beach, cause a lot of drama. That's what America loves, obviously."
