“So one day, I was 17, and my girl came over and we decided to go four-wheeling. So me and her are driving on the road and I pass this really hot senior’s house. He’s outside watering his plants with his shirt off. I turned my head and I noticed that I’m going into this bank [at] 20 miles per hour [and] ran into the bank. The four-wheeler tumbled three times. My girlfriend jumped off [and] skinned her knee. You could see her knee bone and I got stuck under the four-wheeler. I couldn’t move anything just because I looked at this boy because his shirt was off.”
-“Jersey Shore” cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, explaining an unfortunate incident from her teenage years to MTV’s “When I Was 17.” Though she is more interesting in GTL (gym, tan, laundry) nowadays, back in high school she was a great enthusiast of the great outdoors. “Growing up [I was] very into, like, four-wheelers, snowmobiles, snowboarding,” she explained.
Snooki’s story, along with a number of other tales, will be featured on the new episode of “When I Was 17,” which airs this Saturday, July 10, at 11:00 a.m. on MTV. The show also features former “Dawson’s Creek” star James Van Der Beek and master producer and N.E.R.D. frontman Pharrell Williams. Each new episode seeks to reveal something new about the teenage years of some of the biggest stars in the worlds of television, music, film, sports and celebrity.
