She always knew.

Who knew Nicole Polizzi before Dec. 3's premiere of the MTV reality series Jersey Shore.

And now, two months and two days into her 15 minutes of fame, she managed to elicit the day's loudest crowd reaction (mostly boos) at the WIP Wing Bowl, where she was a guest and rode a slow-moving mechanical bull.

"I always knew I was going to be famous," she told me when I asked her about the reaction. "I didn't know when, and I didn't know how, and I didn't know why."

Maybe we'll learn the answer in Season 2.

(Wondering why she was booed? Here's a clip from Jenn Frederick's live interview on today's Good Day Philadelphia. Note Snooki flipping the bird around 00:50.)
