WATCH: 'Jersey Shore' Ladies Take a Vocab Test -- How'd They Do?

Snooki and Deena face off in a test of their brain power -- and you'll be surprised (or not!) at the words they don't know

The ladies of Jersey Shore enjoy talking long as the words don't have more than two syllables. On Wednesday night, Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen challenged Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Deena Cortese to a vocabulary test... and between the two of them, they got one answer right. Who emerged victorious in the "Encylodeenia vs. Snookopedia" competition? Watch below to find out!

Yes, Deena won by a nose (no plastic surgery reference intended), since she knew the word "hypothesis." Has she been catching up on her Scientific American subscription? Or just watching lots of Sesame Street videos?

Either way, she did better than Snooki, who guessed that "halitosis" meant "hocus pocus magic" and "flatulent" meant "out of control obnoxious." But Deena had her share of embarrassing moments -- particularly when it came to a certain naughty word.

"Wait, fellatio. That's a body part, is it not?" Deena asked, as Jenni "J-WOWW" Farley and Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola rolled their eyes.

It's easy to make fun, but really, there's only one qualification for becoming a reality TV star: being wildly entertaining. And Deena and Snooki both pass that test with flying colors.

Watch the gang tackle some more questions below, including "Who's the richest Jersey Shore castmate?" and "Which Real Housewives couple do Sammi and Ronnie Magro think they most resemble?" (Hint: they're also from New Jersey!)
