NEW YORK (CBS) "Jersey Shore" is back in Seaside, and the housemates didn't waste any time before the drama exploded into a full-out fight.

The person behind most of the issues? Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, who moved back into the house with a terrible attitude and was looking to start problems.

Sammi and Ronnie, who are apparently still together despite his Miami antics, arrive at the house first and immediately cause trouble by picking the coveted upstairs room, which has three beds. Everyone wanted that room, but no one wants to live up there with them (can you blame them?). The Situation arrives last, so he's the one stuck in that...situation.

Snooki arrives with Deena Nicole Cortese, the new roommate and replacement for the gone-and-hopefully-forgotten Angelina. She's just like her pal - showing up drunk on the first day, calling herself a "walking holiday" and just being ridiculous.

Everyone welcomes her to the house, except for Sammi, who isn't acting very friendly and basically refuses to talk to her. She also decides to revive her issues with Jenni "JWoww" Farley from last season, and then whines to Ronnie that she has no female friends in the house.

Later that night, things heated up when Deena drunkenly tries to get Mike to cuddle. He rebuffs her, explaining to the camera that the first night is too early to get himself into a "situation," and Sammi laughs at her. Deena leaves the room, calling her names and telling everyone what happened.

Deena goes downstairs and complains to the other roommates about Sammi and Ronnie. They overhear and come downstairs, and everyone starts yelling. A catfight breaks out, but Deena isn't the one throwing punches - it's Jenni, who takes the opportunity to go at Sammi and the two start the house's first brawl. And this is just the first episode!

Other things that happened:

-Snooki told Vinny she had feelings for him, and he went off and had sex with her friend Ryder. He doesn't want to hook up with Snooki again, because he doesn't want her to get hurt if he ends up hooking up with other girls after. She also gets jealous when he flirts with Deena in the hottub.

-Speaking of hottubs, Pauly D tells his mom that no one goes in after The Situation uses it.

-Everyone is pulling up to the house in Mercedes and Bentleys, instead of driving old beat-up cars and packing in garbage bags.

-It only takes Deena a day before she shows someone her "goods" - namely, drunkenly taking off her bikini bottom (by accident?) when modeling her cowboy a for The Situation. He claims he'll keep the mishap between them, but immediately goes and tells everyone. Such a gentleman.

Previews of upcoming episodes show Snooki's infamous arrest on the beach and much more relationship drama for Sammi and Ronnie.
