How Much Snooki (Nicole Polizzi) Made On Jersey Shore And Details Of Her Family

Its been over a decade since the MTV reality television series, Jersey Shore, introduced Snooki to the world. The Chilean American was one of the eight cast members of the show who entertained viewers through her drunken stumbles, hilarious dance moves, and run-ins with the police. She has since then grown to become a TV personality, host, dancer, author, and professional wrestler.

Snooki, who has further gained fame for her appearances in shows like Snooki & Jwoww (2012-2015), Snooki & Jwoww: Moms With Attitude (2015-present), and Jersey Shore: Family Vacation (2018-present) was born Nicole Elizabeth Polizzi. She, however, got her new name in middle school when her friends decided to name her after a male character in the movie Save the Last Dance because she was the first among them to kiss a boy.

Snooki’s Time on Jersey Shore and How Much Money She was Paid For Appearing on the Show

Snooki is no doubt Jersey Shore’s biggest breakout star. She is most noted for her bold and bubbly attitude as well as her fashion sense. She has thus managed to make a great number of fans and followers from the reality show, as well as a few millions of dollars.

MTV aired Jersey Shore for six seasons, from 2009 through 2012 and it was listed as one of the most notable shows on air at the time. The show, which garnered a whopping 8.8 million total viewers for its season four premiere, further became a cultural phenomenon with university classes and conferences happy to discourse it. The show was such a success that it spawned spinoffs like Warsaw Shore in Poland, Geordie Shore in the U.K., and Gandia Shore in Spain. Above all, the success of the show helped most of its cast members live largely.

Snooki, alongside Pauly D, were among the highest-paid cast members of the show by the time it was done. She started off with about $2,200 per episode in the first season and about $30,000 per episode in the second season. By the time the show was in its final season, she was earning $150,000 per episode.

What is Her Net Worth?

Before her role in Jersey Shore, Snooki appeared on the MTV reality show, Is She Really Going Out With Him? Later on, she got the chance to be a part of the cast of Jersey Shore which served as a platform to show her striking personality. Her carefree attitude and craze for parties took her to the next level as she became an overnight celebrity. She would then go on to appear in various other shows, earning handsome paychecks for those appearances. She has further released her own books; A Shore Thing in 2011, Confessions of a Guidette in 2011, and Gorilla Beach in 2012.

Add these earnings to what she also receives from endorsement deals and other dealings like the time Rutgers University paid her $32,000 to speak to students about being a celebrity, then you can see why she is reported to have an estimated net worth of $4 million.

The reality TV star has made a multi-millionaire out of herself, owning a $2.6 million home in Florham Park, New Jersey, and the whole credit goes to her lively character and positive outlook towards life. Some people note her as a weird personality and accuse her of being hollow, but she has proved time and again that she is a straightforward and a big-hearted person with her involvement in different causes and charities.

Why Snooki Decided to Leave Jersey Shore

Snooki was undoubtedly one of the most popular people on the reality television show, therefore, her sudden decision to leave caught many people by surprise. According to her, she decided to leave the show in order to pay attention to her children as leaving them behind to go and shoot the show was unbearable for her.

One other reason Snooki gave for leaving was that she was no longer satisfied with the show’s direction and the lifestyle it promoted, which included partying three days in a row. While this was no big issue for her during her years as a single lady, she wouldn’t see that as fitting for her new life as a wife and mother. She further revealed that her family had been receiving death threats over some of the events that played out on the series.

A new season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation debuted in February 2020 and while you may be seeing her appear on the show., that does not mean she is back. Snooki revealed that she acted that role prior to her announcement about quitting the show.

Meet Her Husband and Kids

Snooki and family

In March 2012, just after Snooki and her Jersey Shore co-star Jennifer Farley began appearing in Snooki & JWoww, the reality TV star announced her engagement to Jionni LaValle. She further confirmed that she was pregnant with Jionni’s child.

Sequel to the news of her pregnancy, there were speculations as to how the creative direction of her spin-off show would be affected, as she would not be able to engage in the “hard-partying, booze-swilling” antics that had formerly garnered high ratings for MTV.

Regardless of this, Snooki later gave birth to her child Lorenzo Dominic LaValle on August 26, 2012. Her second child, Giovanna Marie LaValle, was born two years later on September 26, 2014, weighing in at 6lbs 7oz. About two months after Giovanna was born, Snooki and the father of her kids exchanged marital vows on November 29, 2014.

Snooki’s husband, who prefers to stay out of the spotlight, has not revealed much about himself but from what we are able to gather about him, he is a Jersey boy who grew up in East Hanover. He met Polizzi during a drunken night party at Karma in Seaside Heights.

LaValle does not make a living in the entertainment industry as his wife but he does have a brain for business and he seems to be more concerned about running his business than being a reality TV star. When he met Snooki, he was going to Centenary College to be a gym teacher. Currently, he is majoring in sports management.
