With Season 3 of "Jersey Shore" starting this week, the cast is being unleashed to make celebrity appearances. And ... Snooki is coming to Washington. The pint-sized star plans to sign autographs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 31 at the Washington Auto Show alongside the Washington Redskins' Chris Cooley and Mike Sellers. We hear Cooley and Sellers are pumped.

"They are, like, so charged about meeting Snooki," a source close to the event told Yeas & Nays.

The "Jersey Shore" cast member is easily the biggest name to appear at this year's Auto Show, which also will attract a handful of wrestlers, the Redskins' cheerleaders and a life-sized Dora the Explorer.

The Washington Auto Show will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from Jan. 28 to Feb. 6.

The third season of "The Jersey Shore" debuts Thursday night on MTV.
