Oh, what a difference a few years make. RadarOnline.com has the surprising photos from one rising reality television star's high school years.
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi may now be famous -- or at least infamous -- as one of the castmates of MTV's Jersey Shore, but she wasn't always as tan, outlandish, and uncensored.
In 2006, she was a bespectacled senior at Marlboro High School in Marlboro, NY. When asked what her greatest moment of high school was, Polizzi gave a tame and sweet answer.
"My greatest moment has to be sophomore year when we all started to become really close. I feel truly blessed to have such amazing friends and I will never forget my 06. I Love You!"
In the old pictures, the former cheerleader is barely recognizable based on her current inception as a raven-haired party girl with a penchant for short hemlines and dark make-up. In high school she was clearly more covered up and wore less cover up on her face!
