Every Thursday night, millions of viewers gather around their television sets for a little GTL (gym, tan, laundry). This famous acronym appropriately highlights the ritualistic behaviors of a Guido or Guidette. This Guido/Guidette lifestyle is so accurately portrayed through the cast members who make up MTV’s hit show, The Jersey Shore.
These Guidos and Guidettes get their stereotypical titles from the word ‘Guido’ which once held the meaning of a younger lower class or working class urban Italian-American. This term has since transformed into a word describing a tan-obsessed, muscle-head who pumps his or her fists at the night clubs in the epicenter of their world, New Jersey.
One of the most infamous Guidettes on the Jersey Shore is Nicole Polizzi, a.k.a Snooki. This 4’9 Guidette has got the look and attitude, but there is speculation as to whether she really is a TRUE Guidette or not.
Shockingly, Nicole Polizzi, Snooki, “The Ultimate Guidette” is in fact NOT Italian and even more shocking is that she is also adopted! Her adoptive parents are Italian, but Snooki herself is Chilean. It’s easy to think that ALL of the cast members are full-bloodied, first generation Italians; however, this is not the case! As seen with Snooki, there are actually other cast members who would fail this true “Guido test.”
