Snooki's a stunner at the 2013 Video Music Awards.
Tom Bergeron better brush up on his hosting skills, because out of all the big personalities who've waltzed (and tangoed, and foxtrotted, and flamenco'ed...) onto the "Dancing with the Stars" stage over the years, none has ever been capable of stealing a show or making an entire room speechless quite like Nicole Polizzi, who was announced as part of the competition's 17th season lineup on "Good Morning America" today. The MTV standout will cast aside the fist-pumping tradition of her Northeastern Guidonian peoples in favor of ballroom routines that harken back to Hollywood greats such as Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Charo, and while she's not totally confident in her footwork just yet, the hot mama hopes to at least make a bigger splash than her former "Jersey Shore" co-star, Mike "The Situation," did back in 2010. "I was very proud of him because he is not a dancer whatsoever...but my goal is to be better than Mike, obviously," she told us yesterday at our "Snooki & JWOWW" Season 3 photo shoot.
Snooks has got years of gymnastics and Varsity cheerleading, as well as a lifetime's worth of shaking her rump at nightclubs, under her (size zero) belt, so it's very possible she and her ruský partner, Sasha Farber, can go the "DWTS" distance. The fact that the guy's not much taller than her doesn't hurt their chances, either. "We're the perfect height for each other. We're actually the smallest couple in 'Dancing with the Stars' history to compete," she says in the video interview below. "So that's really cool, we're already breaking a record!"
Hear what else the Mirror Ball Trophy contender had to say about her latest entertainment biz endeavor, find out who she's up against (Bill Nye "The Science Guy" and Jessie Spano better watch their backs!) and make sure to vote for Snooki and Sasha (Snasha?) when the show premieres this fall!
