There can be only one.

Tommy "Cheeseballs" Perna is that tough, macho guy you take notice of when first walking into the bar. His personality is as loud as his silly-ass hat. His voice is as big as his biceps (no implants—peace to the calf guy). He thinks he runs this town. But he does not run this town.

At heart, Tommy is a softie who just wants to have some summer fun at the Jersey Shore, maybe find love again. He'll fight you at the urinal while you piss. He'll try and mob the pizzeria, only to be denied. He just wants someone to wipe him down after a sweaty night at the club. Will you wipe down Tommy Cheeseballs?

It's because of these antics that MTV introduced Jersey Shore. Thank Tommy every day.
