Vinny J. Guadagnino, born on November 11, 1987, is a renowned reality star sensation, with millions of people around the globe invested in this star’s life. Guadagnino was born on Staunton Island in New York, where he remained until after university. He attended the State University of New York and got a bachelor’s degree in politics, achieving an amazing 3.9 G.P.A. from the institution. After leaving university, he focused on furthering his career in the world of politics (Vinny for mayor?) and was the political aide for Democratic Staten Island state assemblyman Michael Cusick. At the time, he even wanted to go to school for law. During his preparation, he was sent the audition form for “Jersey Shore” and took a detour on the road to law school. He didn’t realize how successful of a detour it would be.

Guadagnino was successful in his application to become one of the members of the show, and his rise to stardom began during the first season in 2009 when he was a favorite right from the start. “Jersey Shore” was a resounding success, with many people from around the world tuning in to explore the dramatic lives of the cast. The show would last until 2012, when sadly, after six seasons, it came to an end.

Guadagnino had always enjoyed the spotlight and had a love of playing the comedian. After “Jersey Shore,” he decided to put his full focus on acting and he even enrolled in a few acting classes. While he was cast in a few minor roles in “90210,” “The Hard Times of R.J. Berger,” and “Jersey Shore Shark Attack,” he seemed to be a favorite when it came to reality T.V. In 2013, M.T.V. created a show called “The Show with Vinny,” where he invited celebrity guests into his home and cooked with them. In 2017, he started the “Vinny and Ma Eat America” show, again centered on his love of good food, where he and his Italian-born mother toured around America to find the best cuisine. Today, he is still extremely successful and we hope to see his acting career take off soon.
