Is Jersey Shore’s Snooki Chilean?
Watching Jersey Shore, you'd probably get the impression that all of the castmates are Italian-American. But that's actually wrong.
As anyone who watched Season 4 knows, Vinny has a proud Italian heritage, and plenty of family back in the home country. As far as we know The Situation, Sammi, and Pauly D are also Italian. Ronnie is half Italian, half Puerto Rican.
But JWOWW is half Irish and half Spanish, and Snooki? Snooki's actually Chilean. And don't you dare try to say she denies her heritage!
A "fan" recently tweeted at Snooks, "snooki is CHILENA...she won't admit it tho. Lol yo snooks u actually look mexican.”
Snooki replied proudly, "Chile all the way!" No denial here.
Snooks comes by her Italian persona honestly, too. She was adopted by the Italian-American family we've come to know and love on Jersey Shore when she was just six months old.
Catch the next episode of Snooki & JWOWW on Thursday, August 9 at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
