In an episode of her talk show airing February 8, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, and DJ Pauly D played the show's trivia game "Know Or Go!" Each contestant gets asked a maximum of three trivia questions with an incorrect answer resulting in them being plunged into a hole.
DJ Pauly D was first up. He correctly answered which city Newark airport was in (uhh, Newark) and did simple math to answer the second question correctly, but incorrectly guessed the slogan for Olive Garden. "We don't pump our gas, we pump our fists" he answered before getting the plunge.
"The Situation" was next. After a reprieve on his first question and correctly naming the four seasons, he too got the boot when he couldn't answer who hosted "The Situation Room" on CNN.
Last, but not least, Snooki had her turn. She only got as far as two questions though. Despite a strong start with naming the original 12 colonies, she squealed as DeGeneres quickly pulled the plug on her after she named Canada as one of the colonies.
