    When most people think of Snooki, they're not familiar with her Chilean background but rather her Italian-American upbringing.
    That being said, without her make-up she could easily pass off as either 3 bottom choices. If I had to pick one, i would say people would consider her to be of an unspecified group of Hispanics.

    I was not aware that she had other origin other than Italian, although I thought she looked suspicious for being Italian. Apparently she's not Italian at all, only adopted by an Italian couple. She is Chilean and born in Chile. And she looks Amerindian, not European.

    If I saw her walking the street, I would assume she was from South of the border.

    Exactly. She looks very Amerindian.
    In my hometown however, the citizens make very basic assumptions.

    I think many people go by colour only, and by colour she could pass in many places. However, when you really look at her, especially now (I saw her doing some dance on TV recently) she looks very unusual from a Euro perspective. Due to her fatness and massive use of makeup, she did look very ethnically nonspecific in the past, but when you look at her now it's quite clear that she's not a European. I even think she looks quite strange now. Maybe she just looks strange, just like a strange European would look strange, but she just looks out of the ordinary. Even if she was a European, she would be a very unusually looking European.

    I did not vote, as I'm not an American.

    She looks more like the long lost daughter of Huayna Capac.
