Jersey Shore's Pauly D to appear at Polar Bear Plunge event

photo%201.JPGBecause nothing says bear plunge like smudged spray-on tan. 

Pauly D, one of the guidos in "Jersey Shore," will appear at the Polar Bear Plunge on January 29 as a DJ.

According to the press release from organizers, he will "do two (2) DJ sets - one pre-Plunge and one post-Plunge - inside the Rams Head Ice Lodge," a heated entertainment tent that's set up for the event.

Sadly, the release notes, he will not "do the Plunge himself," as that would totally mess up his hair.

For $500 a pop, he will also be available for meet and greets.

Money raised from that and the plunge will go towards Maryland Special Olympics, which has been organizing the event for 15 years as a fundraiser. 

The plunge will take place at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis. Registration is open at

$500.00 are you kidding me? You know what I can do with $500.00?
Renew my gym membership, wash my laundry for two months & get 16 tan booth passes that could last me for weeks!

500 bucks...? is that a joke?

who even invited this clown? i mean, just look at him

Damon "The Bulldog" Yaffe has a better body.

This is AWESOME!!! I'm putting all of my collective Christmas money into getting me a meet n greet - I mean, come on people, its a good cause and an even cooler opportunity! I wouldn't be surprised if the meet and greets sell out, people love the GTL!

It's TSHIRT TIIIIIMMEE! Is the entertaiment lounge open to the public? I'd definitely go down to see Pauly D and cheer on the plungers, but I'm not down with actually plunging myself as it would definitely mess up my hair.

Katee Bee-Plunge staffer here. To answer your question, yes, the entertainment lounge is open to the public. There are six great zones of entertainment at the Plunge and they are all FREE. For complete details, visit

Kateebee, Plunge staff here. To answer your question, yes, the entertainment lounge is open to the public. Better yet, it is completely free, as are five other zones at the PlungFest. For full details, visit
