Jersey Shore Star Vinny Guadagnino Scores His Own MTV Spin-Off Series, The Show With Vinny

Jersey Shore may be in its sixth and final season. But, the show will go on for Vinny Guadagnino. He is set to star in a new MTV spinoff series called The Show With Vinny.

“It’s probably the biggest thing that’s happened in my life,” Guadagnino revealed to the Huffington Post during  MTV’s Restore the Shore special. “I’m really excited because there’s another side of my personality that likes to act and do improv and host and to be able to get your own show, doing what you want to do, is an amazing feeling.”

And, while the show is being pegged as a talkshow, Vinny admits his new series will definitely be outside the box.”My show doesn’t know what it is!” he joked. “Picture a reality show that sleeps with a TV show and has a baby and that’s what it is. I knew it was going to be a talk show, but I’m not the type to be in a studio with a suit and tie. We wanted to use what I had, which was my family and my house, because that’s what everyone at home always loved. It’s not hiding anything. My mom cooks for the crew and for the celebrities! We got the biggest names in the world for the first episode. I can’t tell you who, but somebody really, really big.”

MTV believes Vinny’s new show will also be a big addition to the network’s lineup. “Vinny’s unique mix of humor, intelligence, curiosity, and heart make him the perfect choice for this genre-busting take on the interview format,” said Chris Linn, MTV Executive Vice President of programming and head of production. “As the lives of the Jersey Shore cast evolve, we are excited to explore new ground while still delivering the laughs and surprises that fans have come to expect from the franchise.”

While the premiere date for The Show With Vinny has yet to be announced, you can watch some of Vinny’s best zingers from his time on the Jersey Shore below.
