Mitt Romney and his wife Ann sat down for an interview that will air Tuesday on Live! With Kelly and Michael. The GOP candidate chatted about a number of topics including reality television.

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan engaged the couple in a game of ‘Romney Rapid Fire’ with a series of questions including, “Honey Boo Boo or Snooki?”

In a surprising admission, it turns out that Mitt is slightly smitten with the flamboyant Jersey Shore celeb Nicole ‘Snooki Polizzi.

He explained, “I’m kind of a Snooki fan. Look how tiny she’s gotten. She’s lost weight. She’s energetic. Just her spark-plug personality is kind of fun.”

Two years ago on The View, Barack Obama missed a similar question during a pop culture quiz when he told co-host Joy Behar, “I’ve got to admit, I don’t know who Snooki is.”

Romney’s wife Ann gave a thumbs down to a certain E! network show, “Who keeps up with the Kardashians? Who can keep up with the Kardashians?”
