Nicole Elizabeth â€œSnookiâ€ Polizzi was born in November 23, 1987 in Santiago de Chile and was adopted when she was six months old by Italian American citizens. While attending to high school she was the first one, of her group, to kiss a boy and was given her famous nickname after a character named Snooki who did the same in the movie, Save the Last Dance.
After high school she went to study veterinary technician in a community college.
Big Break: A Hot Chick?
Snooki had her big break in episode 14 of the reality MTV show â€œIs She Really Going Out with Him?â€ inspired on the successful website HotChickswithDoucheBags.com (yes, apparently she is a hot chick. I couldnâ€™t believe it either), during summer 2009.
