NEW YORK, Nov. 27, 2012

NEW YORK, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --MTV's Jersey Shore cast member, Ronnie
Ortiz-Magro, announced the release of his BroDown app, a fun and
Ronnie-approved way to exercise and motivate friends to stay in shape.

This new app allows users to challenge their friends and others around the
world to see who can do the most continuous push-ups. The more users win, the
higher up on the leader board they climb and the stronger they become.
Eventually users can climb up to "Meatball", "GTL Bro", "Gorilla", and "Team
Ronnie" status, all of which are popular Jersey Shore lines.

Through the app users can record themselves doing as many consecutive push-ups
as they can and keep track of their progress. Users can also share this app
through Facebook and Twitter to challenge their friends.

"Fitness is important to me and I wanted to be a part of something that really
motivates people," said Ronnie. "When I partnered with the tech team behind
BroDown, I knew it was the right fit. I'm challenging everyone to download the
app, get stronger, get your friends and family involved and show the world how
many push-ups you can actually do."

Not only can users compete against friends and "Ronnie's Crew", but they can
access Ronnie's Shore Store to boost their swag. This app is available on
iTunes today.

"It's a great way to show everyone that you're a real Gorilla and check out
the competitions."

The BroDown app can be purchased on iTunes and is also available at for $0.99.
