|Net Worth:||$4 Million|
Nicole was born in Chile and soon found herself in an orphanage. It is little known about her biological parents: either what happened to them or who they were, but it was believed that their ancestors originated from Spain. However, to the surprise of Snooki the autosomal DNA test determined that she is a mixture of Romani (or Gypsies originally from North India), Slovak, Andalusian and Russian. When this multi-ethnical girl was 6 months old she was adopted by American Italian parents and raised in the United States, Marlboro, New York. While attending high school in this city Nicole was Nicknamed Snooki. And why such a weird nickname? Her friends from school found her similar to one of the characters in the movie Save the Last Dance, because she was the first to kiss a boy.
Nicole Polizzi net worth started to grow in the late 2000s, as she started filming for reality television series. She debuted on one of the episodes of Is She Really Going Out with Him? that concentrated on women dating really arrogant and obnoxious men. But what turned her into a national star was another reality television show, Jersey Shore. The show was widely criticised for various reasons. First of all, for using the term “Guido”, which, when referring to Italians and Italian Americans, is considered to be an ethnic slur. For example, one of the show’s advertisements stated that it “exposes one of the area’s most misunderstood species … the GUIDO. Yes, they really do exist!”. Some politicians and locals have also expressed a concern that the show is misleading and has a negative effect on the image of New Jersey. But the most common criticism thrown at the show and its stars was simpler: it (and they) were utterly, almost unbelievably dumb.
Despite all the controversy and criticism Jersey Shore was extremely popular. The premier of the first season was watched by 1.4 million (which is already an impressive number), meanwhile the finale – by 4.8. The fourth season, which was the most popular, premiered with 8.8 million viewers. Needless to say, the popularity of this show has had a major positive effect on Nicole Polizzi net worth. According to our sources, while the first episodes of Jersey Shore have brought Snooki some $5 000 each, as its popularity grew her salary per episode increased to reach $30 000. This is a pretty impressive fortune to be paid for drinking and getting in trouble in front of the cameras, isn’t it?
