Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino says he is used to hearing all kinds of crazy criticism about his fist-pumping castmates.

"One time we were in a bar and a guy walked by and said, 'You are everything that's wrong with this country today,'" he recalls Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (check your local listings). "I was taken back by that. There's the economy, poverty, equal rights -- and Jersey Shore is the worst thing that's wrong?"

Despite New Jersey Governor Chris Christie once declaring that the hit MTV show is bad for the state, Vinny, 21, says, "I think the Jersey Shore is awesome. It's fun, and it's entertaining."

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi insists they don't just party all the time.

"I think no one knows how we really are," says the guidette, 23. "We have, like, different sides. Obviously you see us on the show we party, we do this, and we do that. But outside of the show, we're very quiet."

Take Snooki, for example.

"I'll go to frickin' Barnes & Nobles, get a coffee and just sit down and read," she says. "No one would ever think that. We have different sides to us and people don't see that." Fans might also be surprised that Snooki no longer wants to date a "juicehead."

Says the pint-sized reality starlet, "I think I want to move forward. I want to move Brooklyn and find a business Italian guy to take care of me."
