The “Snook”

KIRSTEN GUTE ’11

The girl who got punched in the face has become an American phenomenon. Her real name is Nicole Polizzi, but she is known to all those who love her as Snooki. Standing at a height of only 4’9″ her loud personality makes up for her small size. However, her huge hair poof, that, of course, does not require a bump-it, probably adds a foot. The hairstyle which has been labeled “the Snook” has been admired and mocked. It rides atop her head and is a constant fixture in the style of Snooki whether she is “beating up the beat” or eating pickles. Snooki constantly states the fact that “pickles are her thing” and is one of the identifying characteristics like her hair. She takes her pickles very seriously, especially when she finds out a prank has been pulled on her, “I’m not [mad] that they put pickles under my bed as a joke, but I’m [mad] that Mike and Pauly wasted two pickles.”

She had a love-hate relationship with her roommates at the beginning of the show; however they all soon came to love her off-beat personality. She believes in the ideals we all share: that everyone should have equal access to tanning beds, all-night partying, and the hairstyle labeled the Snook. Her intensely bronzed skin is a staple in the Snooki style and would never dare to be pale. A self-proclaimed, in-training veterinarian, she remarked when having a lobster for dinner, “I came home when they were putting in the lobsters. I was like ‘Yo, are those real? That’s disgusting; I’m a vet tech. Like, I save animals; I don’t kill them.'” Always funny and tells it how she sees it I would consider her very blunt but always loveable.

For those of you who have been living under a rock, Jersey Shore is a show that follows around seven cast mates in their summer journeys during their time in the Jersey Shore. It has been called stereotypical of Italians and extremely trashy and has angered and offended a large amount of viewers and various organizations. The cast is proud of their show and enjoys showing off their self titled “guido” and “guidette” personalities. It is a guilty pleasure of many and is actually quite entertaining. Whether there is a “situation” or someone getting punched in the face, you will always find something entertaining when watching the Jersey Shore. There is already talk of another season reportedly in the Bahamas. Will you be watching it?
