Last night’s “Tonight Show With Jay Leno” was a room full of hair, confusion, and giggles when “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi took the hot seat.
Resembling a mini Elvira with her signature pouf and black-and-white-striped tresses, Snooki elicited cries of joy from the audience, thanks to her mix of bewilderment and perfunctory guidette candor.
“So did you meet Chef Boyardee?” Jay inquired in reference to her time spent shooting Season 4 in Italy. She giggled, shook her head “no,” and after a momentary pause, asked, “He lives in Italy?”

As for whether or not she really smushed The Situation, Snooki stood her ground. “Well, honestly, Mike is a creep, and we all know he’s creepy and I wouldn’t touch him with a 10-foot pole, so I don’t know what he’s talking about.”
However, the winning moment of the night was when Jay discussed the 23-year-old’s new scent soon to debut.
“It doesn’t smell like pickles,” Snooki declared triumphantly. “When I found my real scent for the perfume, I wanted it flirty and bubbly like my personality, and obviously, something DTF.”
“DTF?” Jay asked baffled with amusement. To bring guest Jeff Bridges into the conversation, the host asked Snooki to translate for her equally confused couch neighbor. Under a barrage of accompanying bleeps, the reality starlet explained the acronym.
“How do you use that in a sentence?” implored the bearded Academy Award winner.
