The couple has appeared together in several reality shows, the most popular being their appearances in “Jersey Shore”, and “Marriage Bootcamp”.
Parents, Family, Life Before Reality TV
Roger spent his childhood in Cherryfield, apparently n only child living with his working-class parents. He eventually moved to New Jersey to a job as a truck driver for Hazmat Tankers, which helped establish himself as a businessman. However, once he got the first taste of the reality TV industry, Roger left his position and focused entirely on his new career.
Reality TV Career and First Meeting with Jwoww
Roger joined “Jersey Shore” in its first season in 2009, which changed his life for good. He and seven other participants, one of which was his future wife Jwoww, were chosen to enter the house in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, and spend a summer there. For the next few seasons, the location of the filming changed, and the participants found themselves living in South Beach, Florida, and even Florence, Italy. During season one, Roger and Jwoww started their relationship, but it was only in the third season that they made it official.
Popularity Through Marriage
The couple’s relationship began in 2010, and after two years Roger took the step of proposing to Jenni. He organized a sky-diving trip for the two of them, and Jenni had no clue what would happen. He bought a pink diamond ring and waited for her to land, and when she was out of her parachute, Roger got down on his knee and popped the question. You can see the whole thing here. Roger’s romantic method made him a star, and as “Jersey Shore” continued, Roger’s popularity grew considerably, and his net worth increased as the producers of the show offered him a new contract. Their wedding ceremony was held on the 18th November 2015 in New Jersey.

Though on screen Roger and Jwoww seem like a perfect couple, it isn’t all milk and honey for the two. They have had a number of problems, which brought them to another reality TV show “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars”. Some of the problems include Jenni’s successful career, while also Roger thought that Jenni was faking in front of the camera, and isn’t that much in love with him. However, the couple have resolved their problems and have kept the sanctity of their marriage.
