Lookin' GoodSnooki’s Come a Long Way Since ‘Jersey Shore’ — See Nicole Polizzi’s Weight Loss Transformation!

Nicole “SnookiPolizzi has come a long way since her Jersey Shore days! The mother of three found fame on the hit reality show — but today, she looks nothing like she did on the MTV series. After losing weight, getting breast implants and becoming a mother, the starlet has changed a lot and she’s loving it.

We first met Nicole as a spunky go-getter with a heart of gold in late 2009 when the now-famous reality series about Italians in New Jersey debuted. Initially, she had a hard time fitting in with costars Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, DJ Pauly D, JWoww, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Sammi SweetheartVinny Guadagnino and Angelina Pivarnick. However, following a heartfelt apology for her drunken behavior on the group’s first night at the shore house, the cast welcomed her with open arms.

During the show’s initial season, Snooki’s image became a worldwide phenomenon — so much so that she became one of the most popular celebrity Halloween costumes in 2010. Her appeal, along with the charm of her costars, cemented the series as one of the most notable reality shows of all time.

The original run of Jersey Shore came to an end in late 2012 — but Snooki was already taking over the channel. Her successful spinoff series with Jenni Farley was titled Snooki & JWoww and premiered in June of that year. The series ran for four seasons and ended in late 2015. In 2013, the starlet competed on season 17 of Dancing With the Stars alongside pro Sasha Farber. She received 8th place honors and overall good reviews from the judges.

Though it seemed her Jersey Shore days were behind her, she joined the original crew (sans Sammi) for the Jersey Shore Family Vacation reboot, which premiered in April 2018. The new series has had three seasons so far and has been greenlit for a fourth, though no official filming news has been announced due to the coronavirus pandemic.

All the while, Nicole has had an incredible family by her side throughout her reality TV career. She got engaged to boyfriend Jionni LaValle in March 2012. They welcomed their first child, son Lorenzo, in August of that year. Snooki gave birth to their second child, daughter Giovanna, in September 2014. The couple tied the knot two months later in late November. In May 2019, she gave birth to her third child, son Angelo.
