The Italian flag is mounted proudly outside the Jersey Shore house, but not all the roommates have Italy in their blood. As fans of the show know, Vinny, The Situation, Pauly D, Deena Nicole, and Sammi come from Italian-American families, but three roommates have different ethnicities.

JWOWW is part Italian with Irish and Spanish roots, and Ronnie is half-Italian, half-Puerto Rican. As for Snooki, the original meatball is the only cast member who wasn’t born in this country. So where is she from?

In 2011, Snooki opened up about the fact that she is ethnically Chilean, and was adopted by her Italian-American parents when she was six months old. She has said that she has no interest in finding out who her biological parents are, nor does she want to know why they gave her up.

Jersey Shore Season 6 will premiere on Thursday, October 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
