Snooki is a television personality who achieved reality TV fame and is Chilean-American with a cumulative net worth of $4 million. Her personal fortune was earned primarily from being a reality TV star on the Jersey Shore show, which first began to air in 2009. Since then, she has appeared in several spinoff shows that all had a relationship with Jersey Shore. It is estimated that she receives $150,000 per episode. Nicole Snooki Polizzi has also gone on to become a respected screenwriter, producer, and actor, and she is still only 34 years old, having been born on November 23rd, 1987.
Snooki’s Early Life
As you might guess, Snooki is not her real name, and when she was born in Santiago, Chile, her parents named her Nicole Elizabeth Polizzi. When she was just six months old, she was adopted by a New York couple, Andy and Helen Polizzi, and then grew up in Marlboro, New York. Her adoptive parents are of Italian American descent. Even though Snooki herself was born in Chile, she has no real Chilean heritage. She is the result of a melting pot of ethnicities, including South Asian, Middle Eastern, Jewish, and Iberian-American.
Her father managed an auto salvage yard while her mother managed an office. In high school, she earned the nickname ‘Snooking’ when she became the first of her friends to actually kiss a boy. The name Snooki itself comes from the movie Save the Last Dance. She had an eating disorder throughout high school but still became an athletic cheerleader. After graduating high school, she decided to become a veterinary technician and enrolled at Brookdale Community College.
Career as an MTV personality
Although she is most closely identified with Jersey Shore, that was not Snooki’s first attempt at reality TV. She actually had her first experience on reality television, appearing on Is She Really Going Out With Him? This MTV show featured women who dated obnoxious or arrogant men, and Snooki appeared in episode 14 with her boyfriend at the time, Justin. Luckily, the Jersey Shore casting director was there to scout her, and she immediately became the breakout star of the Jersey Shore cast. By 2010, she had become so popular that Snooki costumes appeared everywhere, and everyone wanted to wear them.
In 2011, Snooki and a Jersey Shore cast member, Jennifer Farley (JWoww), signed up to appear in a spinoff TV series called Snooki and JWoww. The network considered it to be something of a modern-day Laverne and Shirley, so it ran for four seasons until its run ended in February of 2015. In the 17th season of Dancing With the Stars, Snooki was matched up with a professional dancer, Sasha Farber, and they were able to secure 8th Place when they were eliminated on October 28th, 2013.
Snooki branches out
Later on, in 2015, a new web series called Snooki & JWoww: Moms With Attitude premiered, and Snooki had another television responsibility. By December of 2019, Snooki was ready to announce that she was leaving Jersey Shore and she made the revelation on an episode of the podcast It’s Happening with Snooki & Joey.
At that time, she said, “I’m not coming back for Jersey Shore season 4 even if the series is renewed. The main reason is I just can’t do it anymore. Literally, leaving my kids to film the show has become very difficult on me. I try and quit every single day, because I hate being away from my kids. I don’t like partying three straight days anymore, that’s’ just not my lifestyle now. I want to be home with my kids, so I can watch them grow up.”
Snooki’s personal life
Snooki was engaged to Jionni LaValle in March of 2012. In August of that same year, she gave birth to the couple’s first child, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle. No. Her second child, Giovanna Marie Lavalle, came along in September of 2014. Finally, on November 29th, 2014, Snooki and Jionni LaValle were married after giving birth to their third child, Angelo James LaValle, earlier in the year, on May 30th.
Jionni himself prefers to stay out of the spotlight and allow his wife to gather all the critical praise, while he remains in the background. The two met at a nightclub in 2010 when Snooki was filming an episode of season 3 of Jersey Shore. She was inebriated at the time and could not remember his name, so she called him Bernard. Despite that, the two quickly became a major item and were soon after engaged and expecting their first child.
In October of 2016, Snooki announced that she had undergone a procedure to augment her breasts to have a larger C cup. By July of 2020, she was prepared to announce her own clothing line of baby merchandise that she called MAWMA. The products would be stocked at all Buy Buy Baby stores. This line of merchandise includes such things as diaper bags, travel systems, strollers, and highchairs. Snooki herself demonstrated many of the samples of her strollers and other products in an Instagram video. The line of merchandise was well-received and has enjoyed brisk sales since then.
Earnings from MTV
During her first season of Jersey Shore, Snooki earned a paltry $2,000 per episode. By the time season 2 rolled around, that was increased to $30,000, and when the show’s last season was filmed, she earned a whopping $150,000 for every episode. A famous incident occurred when Snooki was filming in Seaside Heights when she was literally punched in the face by a New York City school gym teacher named Brad Ferro. Numerous videos captured the action, and it went viral on YouTube before being picked up by national news media. Following this public punch in the face, Snooki demanded an increase from her $2,000 appearance fee, up to $10,000 for every event that she attended. Snooki’s net worth continues to grow, but she is enjoying motherhood’s joys and taking a Jersey Shore family vacation. When Jersey Shore ended, she was undoubtedly the richest cast member, and that was just fine with her.
