The Republican presidential candidate was interviewed alongside wife Ann on Live! With Kelly and Michael, in an interview set to air next week.
The New York TImes reports that when Romney was asked who he preferred between Snooki and child star Honey Boo Boo, he came down in favour of the Jersey Shore star.
"I'm kind of a Snooki fan," Romney revealed. "Look how tiny she's gotten. She's lost weight. She's energetic. Just her spark-plug personality is kind of fun."
When wife Ann was asked then whether she keeps up with the Kardashians, she replied: "Who keeps up with the Kardashians? Who can keep up with the Kardashians?"
Romney also revealed personal details such as his predilection for peanut butter sandwiches and chocolate milk, his bad snoring habits and his admiration for actor Gene Hackman. He also claimed that he'd like Hackman to play him, should a movie of his life ever be produced.
Ann also reiterated that her favourite TV show is sitcom Modern Family, despite executive producer Steve Levitan recently ridiculing what he perceived as her hypocrisy on Twitter.
