“I think a big part of our show is we don’t show our celebrity. Even though people say that we’re celebrities, we don’t consider ourselves celebrities,” Farley told Celebuzz. “Our show is based on what goes on at our house. It’s the day-to-day activities. So people can relate to our makeups, breakups, fighting, babies, and engagements. They’re growing with us from the Jersey Shore, and they’re also falling in love with our family and friends.”
“We’re very relatable,” Polizzi added. “We’re best friends.”
But it’s not just their real-people personas that makes Snooki & JWOWW stand out in the overly-saturated market of reality television.
Polizzi and Farley believe their show truly pulls back the curtain on their lives, unlike more planned-out series such as The Bachelor, Survivor or the Real Housewives franchises. Over the course of six weeks of shooting, the two forfeit most of their access to television, cell phone and Internet as they are “filmed 2/7,” Farley explained.
“A lot of reality shows, they don’t film 24/7. They are like three days a week from this time to this time, so you don’t get to see everything,” Polizzi said. “With our show, you get to see everything and it’s more organic that way.”
“That’s why I feel a lot of reality TV doesn’t succeed,” Farley added. “[If] you take away the necessities, and you’re going to get real TV. [When] you film 24/7, then you’re going to catch the good stuff.”
