Years after the ashes of Jersey Shore have been scattered under the Seaside boardwalk, most of the gang has hung up their creeping spurs and settled down with someone special. We know that Snooki and JWoww have both become mothers, Sam and Ron are living together, and Mike and Deena are both in long-term relationships. This demands the question: Is Vinny Guadagnino from Jersey Shore dating anybody? I hope I wasn't the only one thinking this, but at certain points in the show's run he seemed like the most eligible bachelor of the bunch. Don't judge me, please. This was an "if you had to choose" type of observation. He could correctly use the word "parasite" in a sentence, he had a passable sense of humor, and his hair wasn't gelled into a plasticized block. One would think then that he was probably wifed up by now, but evidence proves otherwise.
Last May, Guadagnino appeared on The Wendy Williams Show to talk about his new career as a talk show host on The Show with Vinny. In addition to talking about his fanboy tendencies, he confirmed that he is indeed single. A year later, judging from his Instagram and Twitter feeds, it would appear that he's still very much available. Case in point, this photo of a J. Crew-looking Vinny looking ready for his Tinder default close-up. What's the fabric content of that shirt? Oh, just the finest and most supple boyfriend material from the farthest reaches of the Orient.
In the past, Guadagnino dated his former Guy Code costar Melanie Iglesias from 2012 into 2013, but the two have been broken up for a significant amount of time. According to MStarz, the pair called it quits last year after some very public Twitter beef. Reportedly, Iglesias sent out a barrage of angry tweets alleging that Guadagnino cheated on her, to which he replied that there was more going on than she revealed. Erm, that doesn't sound like the most promising defense.
Since he and Iglesias split, Guadagnino has become a first-rate satirist on "what girlfriends do." Obviously, this is something that only a man without a girlfriend has the perspective to observe.
Rather than throwing himself into relationships, he is apparently embarking on a new career path in comedy.
With all the Insta-videos he posts, it's pretty apparent that this guy has no time for a girlfriend. Reciprocally, he has so much time on his hands specifically because he has no girlfriend.
Lest you feel bad for him having to play 9th wheel to his Shore family and all, at least he has the bromance of fellow singleton Pauly D to comfort in. Their friendship was always the real love story of The Jersey Shore anyway.
