(AP) New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was never a fan of MTV's "Jersey Shore," saying it unfairly cast the state in a negative light.


So when Nicole Polizzi, otherwise known as Snooki, got to meet the governor Friday and shake his hand, their exchange was a bit awkward.


Christie and "Jersey Shore" cast members appeared separately on NBC's "Today" show during filming in Seaside Heights, N.J., to talk about the state's recovery from Superstorm Sandy. Seaside is where "Jersey Shore" was filmed.


In a later exchange captured on video by the Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/ZiTFCx ), an unsmiling Snooki told Christie she hoped he would "start to like us."


Christie responded, "Well, we'll do our best."


After they parted ways, Snooki looked at the camera and said, "He just doesn't like us."
