It’s been several years since former Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Palozzi adorned our television screens with her overtly tanned presence. Yet the reality TV starlet continues her reign with her MTV spinoff Snooki and JWoww. If that still isn’t enough, the pint-sized pickle lover hopes to expand her viewer audience, as she, along with fellow Latina and former The Voice social media correspondent Christian Milian, sashay their way across prime time as contestants on ABC’s "Dancing With the Stars."
Between the two ladies, Milian is the one with more experience, as she started her career as a musical performer. But that's not to say that Snooki herself didn’t compare.
In fact, during last night’s season premiere, both Latinas did amazingly well with Christiana scoring 21/30 (with Latino partner Mark Ballas) and Snooki nabbing an even higher score of 23/30.
The hit ABC show features additional television favorites such as Amber Riley of Glee, Pretty Little Liars heartthrob Brant Daugherty, former High School Musical star Corbin Bleu and son to the famous Ozzy and Sharoun Osbourne, Jack Osbourne.
As for the nights’ front-runner, Amber is the current act to beat with a score of 27/30. Yet, the Glee star might credit her moves to something familiar to the Latin culture.
We chatted with Snooki, Christina, Mark and Amber at the show's opening last night.
