On Jersey Shore Season 6, Episode 5: “Old Profession”, Snooki got some frightening news at the doctor’s office. The then-pregnant meatball went with JWOWW on her appointment, after Roger’s  shove caused JWOWW’s ankle to fracture. While Jenni received her own terrible news, Snooki had a thought: How tall am I?

Stepping up to a height measure, a doctor tells Snooki that she is 4’8” tall. This shocked most viewers, and especially Snooki, since her height was widely reported as 4’9”. Did she really shrink?

There isn’t a lot of information on a correlation between pregnancy and shrinking, so we’re going to have to assume that Snooki just wore some super-thick socks or flats (!) back in the day when she originally got measured. Or maybe her 6-months-pregnant belly was causing her to slouch, or invert her back, leading to the lost inch.

Why do you think Snooki’s measurements are off? Tell us in the reaction buttons below!
