Jersey Shore Cast Struggles With Simple Questions On Leno

The Jersey Shore gang stopped by The Tonight Show Wednesday in a repeat appearance on Leno's "Battle of the Celebrity All-Stars" segment. It’s a mostly cringe-worthy affair in which Leno asks them simple questions about current affairs and they stare ahead blankly and uncomfortably giggle. JWOWW mistakes Kim Jong-Il for Jackie Chan! Pauly D thinks “homo sapien” means "homosexual”! Like half of them think Mexico is a U.S. state! Uh, lolz?

Somehow Vinny was able to avoid taking part in the ridicule. With his scholarly ambitions, one presumes he felt above answering questions like “What country started the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day?” on air.
