Well, 2011 is drawing to a close. In honor of the end of a great year of Jersey Shore goodness, we want to know: which Macaroni Rascal had the best year?

We've come up with three nominees:

Snooki: In 2011, Snooki dropped 18 pounds, transforming from meatball to svelte swimsuit babe. Plus, she met Jionni, the man she plans to marry one day. On top of that she's written a bestselling novel, launched her own perfume line, and signed up for a spin-off with JWOWW.

Pauly D: Pauly D is all about the music, and 2011 was a great year for that passion. He was Palms Las Vegas' resident DJ for the year, went on tour with Britney Spears, got his own spin-off about his life as a DJ, and, oh yeah, signed a record deal with 50 Cent's record label.

Deena: Before 2011, Deena was just another guidette chain-smoking outside Karma. Now she's a beloved cast member on a hit TV show. That's definitely a good year.
