This past summer, Snooki confused the paparazzi by visiting a DNA testing facility. At the time, speculation pointed to possible concerns regarding the identity of Lorenzo’s father. Turns out, the Jersey Shore star wanted to learn more about her own heritage. The test results just might surprise you; they certainly proved a revelation for our favorite guidette!
Viewers have traditionally assumed that anyone and everyone portrayed on Jersey Shore could point to a thoroughly Italian-American background. Turns out, that’s not exactly the case for Snooki. The pint-sized reality star was born in Chile and later adopted by an Italian-American family, so while she’s spent her life among guidos and guidettes, her biological background differs somewhat from that of her Jersey Shore counterparts.
Curious about her heritage, Snooki decided to seek feedback from a DNA test. And of course, MTV was there to film the entire escapade — after all, producers needed material for Snooki & JWoww. Snooki definitely experienced a case of the nerves before she learned the results, although she was also excited to find out why, exactly, her natural skin color had always been on the dark side.
She assumed some sort of Spanish background would enter the equation, but it looks like Snooki’s ancestry covers the entire globe! While consulting with a DNA specialist, Snooki learned that she had Jewish, Slovakian, Asian, even Gypsy blood! She had mixed feelings about the DNA test results, later admitting that she didn’t mind learning of her Asian heritage, because “Asians are hot.”
