29. New Jersey
The typical New Jersey guy depicted in the notorious Jersey Shore has a lot to do with the state’s reputation. However, in the case of New Jersey, the reality show wasn’t too far from reality, and chances are if you pay a visit to any bar around New Jersey, you’re likely to see at least one group of fist-bumping, spray-tanned guys wearing too much hair gel.
But no matter how much we make fun of New Jersey (they make it too easy for the rest of the U.S) nothing ever gets to them, because their state pride is even bigger than the amount of gel they put in their hair. The Jersey pride is a real thing, and people from New Jersey will go tremendous lengths to defend their beloved state.
