js4 11 'Jersey Shore' season 4: Florence, Italy subs for Seaside HeightsOn Thursday (Aug. 4), MTV returns to the “Jersey Shore,” except that this time around the GTL crew got way upgraded, with Florence, Italy standing in for their usual tee-shirt time stomping grounds.

What will a European vacation bring for our favorite fist-pumpers? Well, thanks to the ever-vigilant paparazzi — and the unhushable hijinks of the “JS” cast, we already know some of what is set to unfold.

If you’d prefer to go into season 4 with no clue about what to expect, stop reading now and come back later for our post-premiere recap. This stuff hardly counts as spoilers, but we’d rather warn:

>> Snooki crashes into a cop car: In May, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi drove into a parked cop car. No alcohol was involved and though a couple of Italian police officers sustained light injuries, Snooki’s pouf was unaffected.

>> Ronnie vs. the Situation:
Not a huge shock that these two finally duke it out. We’re not going to say who won, but we know who we’d put our money on FTW.

>> Pale: Apparently the crew had trouble finding a place to complete the “tanning” part of their GTL trifecta. They fade to almost human coloring by the end of the season.

What are you looking forward to from season 4 of “Jersey Shore,” zappers?
