Justina Valentine’s hosting credits include ‘How Far Is Tattoo Far?’

Justina’s extensive hosting repertoire includes a series one famed Jersey Shore star once hosted. When the popular MTV show How Far Is Tattoo Far? debuted in 2018, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Nico Tortorella moderated the series.

However, Nicole’s role as host ended almost as soon as it began.

During Season 2, the Family Vacation personality suddenly stopped appearing in episodes and was replaced by Justina. However, the reason for Nicole’s departure was straightforward: she went on maternity leave following the birth of her third child.

For the remainder of the second season, the “Candy Land” singer served as a temporary co-host.
