Snooki, JWoww and the rest of the Jersey Shore gang have said their goodbyes. The pint-sized reality star and her BFF may be sad to see this chapter of their lives close, but they're each very much looking forward to the future!

While Jersey Shore fans will be wiping tears away as Snooki and the gang say goodbye in the series finale airing Thursday night, a recent photo of the new mom and bestie JWoww has people talking.

Appearing at The X Factor season finale performances show taping on Wednesday, Snooki and JWoww happily posed for photographers. Though both Jersey Shore stars wore heels, Jenni "JWoww" Farley towered over her red-headed friend.

Curious how tall JWoww and Snooki each are? Reportedly the brunette, who is engaged to marry Roger Matthews, is 5 feet 7 inches, while Snooki comes in at a diminutive 4 feet 8 inches. That's nearly a foot difference between the two!

Sizes aside, both young ladies have mixed emotions about seeing their Jersey Shore days come to an end.

"I'm definitely ready to move on," Snooki told E! News. "But it does suck because it's what started everything. We're always going to be a family, no matter what."

"We're sad because we are a family," JWoww chimed in, adding, "It's easy to get together especially working with MTV, but we have to move on with our lives. Engagements, babies."

"I'll be honest with you, it may be starting to hit me right now," Mike Sorrentino shared. "I'm never anxious or nervous and this is the first moment where I'm like, 'Wow. It's over.' But at the same time, it's bittersweet and the sweet part is that we are a part of something that was so special."

Sharing she's grown too old to party like she used to, Deena Cortese commented, "I just feel like all of us have grown and moved on with our lives. I'll always be a meatball, don't get me wrong, but I think it gets tiring. I can't drink like I used to drink and do what I used to do two years ago. I'm kind of, in a way, happy it's ending."
