Mitt Romney has faced some tough questions on the campaign trail, and he was presented with another difficult one during a recently-taped interview for "Live! With Kelly and Michael": Snooki or Honey Boo Boo?

"Do you know who either of these are?" Kelly Ripa asked the Republican presidential nominee after her co-host Michael Strahan presented him with the choice. (Romney had said earlier in the interview that he didn't "keep up" with the Kardashians.)

"Yes. ... I'm kind of a Snooki fan," Romney replied, opting for the "Jersey Shore" star. "Look how tiny she's gotten. She's lost weight. She's energetic. Just her spark-plug personality is kind of fun."

Romney appeared on the show with his wife, Ann, but the couple said they have little time for romance at the moment.

"Hardly," Mitt Romney said, when asked if they have date nights. "We typically get Sunday morning. We get to go to church together."

Elsewhere in the "Live!" interview, Romney revealed that he wears "as little as possible" to bed at night, that Nelson Mandela is the person he'd most like to have dinner with, and that he thinks Gene Hackman and Michelle Pfeiffer should play the Romneys if their story were ever told on the big screen.

The Romneys' full interview airs Tuesday on "Live!" Watch a clip below:
