Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi was a stand-out on MTV’s hit reality show, The Jersey Shore, thanks to her love of alcohol and her tendency to say and do some outrageous things on national television.
Recently, Snooki was announced as a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice Season 15, and while most will probably anticipate she’ll be eliminated fairly early on, it’s important to remember she’s one of the only Jersey Shore alums who’s been able to maintain a business and sizable net worth from her reality TV fame.
