Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is an American reality television personality who appeared on the MTV reality show Jersey Shore starting in 2009.

Early years and career:

Polizzi is of Chilean descent (including Italian Chilean ancestry), and was adopted when she was six months old and was raised by Italian American parents. Polizzi earned her nickname, Snooki, in middle school when her friends named her after "Snookie", a (male) character in Save the Last Dance because she was the first of her friends to kiss a boy.

Polizzi grew up and attended school in Marlboro, New York, where she was a cheerleader. During high school, Polizzi suffered from an eating disorder, at one point weighing a mere 80 lbs. The 4 ft. 9 in. (145 cm) Polizzi attributes maintaining her position as a cheerleader partly led to her disorder.

Polizzi attended community college after graduating from Marlboro High School, where she studied to become a veterinarian.

MTV first introduced Polizzi in Is She Really Going Out with Him?,[5] a show that focused on women dating obnoxious or arrogant men. Polizzi and her beau, Justin, appeared in episode 14, "Jerz Pud".

Polizzi became part of the reality TV series Jersey Shore after responding to a Facebook advertisement she saw about auditioning. The New York Times identified her as "the breakout member of the cast". According to the New York Times, her actions on the show have caused her to be the target of public disdain while having a "strange appeal". One measure of her appeal was that it was reported in 2010 that she was one of the most popular Halloween costumes for the year.

Polizzi's popularity on the first season of Jersey Shore, which earned her $5,000 per episode, now earns her $30,000 per episode. While shooting in Seaside Heights, a drunk man in a bar punched Polizzi in the face. The hit was deleted from future showings of the episode. Videos of the punch went viral on Youtube and were featured in many news media. After the punch was made public, Polizzi's appearance fees increased from $2,000 per event to $10,000 per event.

Polizzi presented an award at 2010 CMT Music Awards On July 27, 2010, the cast of Jersey Shore appeared at the New York Stock Exchange and Polizzi rang the opening bell. Polizzi and the cast of Jersey Shore appeared at the 2010 MTV VMAs on September 12, 2010. Polizzi also appeared on TLC's Cake Boss episode "Snookie, Super Anthony & a Ship" on November 8, 2010, in which she orders a cake for her mom.

She was subsequently parodied in the South Park episode "It's a Jersey Thing", and is frequently caricatured on Saturday Night Live by actor Bobby Moynihan.

On September 30, 2010, it was announced that Polizzi would be writing a book entitled A Shore Thing. It will be released January 2011 and will describe her search for love on the boardwalk.

On November 7, 2010, Polizzi appeared at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Madrid, Spain.
