The cast of MTV's “Jersey Shore” first appeared on the show in 2009, when Guadagnino was 21 years old. From 2009 to 2012, he appeared in every episode of the show's six seasons.
The sitcom revolved around the lives of eight housemates who share a vacation home in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, with their respective partners. Seasons two and four of the show were filmed in South Beach, Florida, and Florence, Italy, respectively, for the second and fourth seasons.
The show was a cultural phenomenon that grew in popularity, with several of the original cast members going on to have successful careers in television as a result of their appearance on the show.
Following the conclusion of the show, Guadagnino himself began taking acting training. He acted as a guest star on the comedy series “The Hard Times of RJ Berger” and in the Syfy original film “Jersey Shore Shark Attack.” He is also a model and actor.
With the launch of his talk show on MTV, “The Show with Vinny,” Guadagnino became the first celebrity to do so. The show was filmed at Guadagnino's own house, where he interviewed celebrities while they ate dinner with him and his family. Later on, he and his mother were featured on a cooking show on The Cooking Channel called “Vinny & Me Eat America.”
In 2018, Guadagnino reunited with the bulk of the original cast members of “Jersey Shore” for the filming of “Jersey Shore: Family Reunion,” which was released in 2018. The relaunch aired for three seasons from 2018 to 2019, with the final season airing in 2019.
In April of this year, Guadagnino embarked on two major projects: he began a month-long residency as a guest host at Chippendales at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and his show “Double Shot at Love,” which he co-hosted with “Jersey Shore” castmate Pauly D, premiered on MTV in the United States.
“The Masked Dancer,” a spin-off of “The Masked Singer,” was a reality television show in which Guadagnino competed and was eliminated in the sixth round in 2021.
Outside of his business life, Guadagnino has devoted his time and resources to several charitable endeavors as well. As part of his anti-bullying campaign, he founded the IHAV clothing brand in 2011, with all of the sales going to the “Do Something” charity.

He has also invested time in his wellness, and he has personally dropped more than 50 pounds while following the ketogenic diet, which prompted him to launch social media channels devoted only to the ketogenic lifestyle. In addition, he is the co-author of a book titled “Control the Crazy: My Plan to Stop Stressing, Avoid Drama, and Maintain Inner Cool,” which was published in 2012.
He has had romantic relationships with several different women, some of whom he met while appearing on various reality television shows in which he has appeared. The two were in a relationship while filming the “Jersey Shore: Family Reunion” reboot, but they ended up breaking up in April of this year.
