On Thursday aka Jers-day, Deena Nicole Cortese, Vinny Guadagnino and Samantha Giancola from MTV’s Jersey Shore uncomfortably squirmed as the Fox & Friends crew peppered them with Bill O’Reilly‘s vocab questions.
“I don’t know if this is going to go well,” Alisyn Camerota acknowledged. “Let’s start with ‘miscreant’.”
“Something missing in action,” Cortese replied confidently.
This response cracked up the news anchors, who made jokes at her expense.
“Where did I put my creant!? It’s missing!” Brian Kilmeade snarked.
“It’s miscreant!” Steve Doocy replied.
Interestingly, despite being wrong, the show gave Cortese a “correct” sound.
“I like how you delivered that with ‘tude! You just knew it!” Camerota exclaimed.
The word ‘morose’ also stumped the reality stars; Guadagnino thought it was a fine wine.
However, the crew seemed absolutely convinced ‘jackanapes’ meant crazy — which unfortunately, actually meant a conceited or impudent person.
