It's hard to believe, but Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was a total unknown less than three years ago!
Five seasons of Jersey Shore later, she's become of the most recognizable and infamous reality stars of all time with her penchant for "smushing" and outrageous antics. She's even managed to parlay that notoriety into becoming a bestselling author, boxing promoter and pro wrestler! And as the sixth and final season of the show kicks off tonight, we've even been seeing a gentler, grown-up Snooki lately as she's now engaged and raising her first child. There have been plenty of crazy Snooki moments over the last three years, but we managed to, ahem, smush together our top 13 favorites.
How much money did Snooki get paid to speak at a university? Find out after the jump!
