Reality star Vinny Guadagnino was announced as part of the cast of “Dancing With The Stars” season 31 earlier this month. On Monday evening, the reality dancing competition series finally premiered, and Guadagnino made his debut as a participant.
However, before making his big debut, Guadagnino was given sound advice from his fellow “Jersey Shore” co-star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.
Polizzi herself was also a contestant on the 17th edition of “DWTS” which occurred back in 2013.
Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Cheers On Co-StarVinny Guadagnino
The American Reality star, best known for her nickname “Snooki” in a discussion with People Magazine, idolized her former colleague while also opening up about the piece of advice she gave Guadagnino, which she believes can set him apart from other stars.
Snooki, who partnered with pro dancer Sasha Farber on season 17 and finished at 8th position, described her time on the reality dancing competition series as “literally, the best time in my life.”
With her sea of experience and the swell time she had on “DWTS,” Snooki tried to pass on some wisdom to Guadagnino while expressing her utmost belief in him. In her words: “I feel like Vinny will definitely be amazing just because I feel like, out of all of us, he’s the best dancer because it comes naturally to him.”
She continued, “But I was like, ‘Vinny, this is going to be the best time of your life.’ I’m like, ‘I would go back in a second on that show. It was stressful, but it was amazing.’ I was like, “Enjoy it, have the best time, but know that it is stressful and it’s fun.”
She added that she encouraged the 34-year-old to aim for the top five position. “We got to vote for him. People got to vote for Vinny,” Snooki declared.
The Chile native also detailed her experiences while on the show, revealing that she is still in close connection with her then-dance partner. She noted, “I still talk to Sasha and everyone. It’s just such a nice environment. Everyone is so nice. They literally become your family. You become best friends with the cast. It’s just the best experience.”

It comes as no surprise that Snooki felt she had to pass on the mantle to Guadagnino, given that he is the third “Jersey Shore” star to participate in the competition. Before her time in 2013, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino competed in 2010 for season 11 but was booted from the show early.
Snooki Talks Cheez-It Ambassadorship
During the interview, the mother-of-three also discussed her partnership with the cracker brand Cheez-It. For the brand’s 30th anniversary, they released a special reality TV collector’s cheddition box with her face on it.
Opening up about the joy of seeing her face on one of her favorite snacks, Snooki said, “So I got the box, the ‘100% Real Original,’ and I’m on the box, and my kids think I’m so cool. They just can’t wait to show their friends because my kids love Cheez-Its. So they’re like, ‘Mom, there’s no way you’re on the box.’ It’s literally all in my pantry, in my kitchen.”
However, the partnership didn’t come to the OG reality star by chance. She has no doubt had quite the influence in the reality world sphere, and Snooki is very aware of her impact.
Snooki told the publication that her vast experience in the industry has exposed her to several offers from top brands, but she is very “picky” about who she works with because she was to be true to herself in her collaborations.
“So I’m definitely picky with everything, so don’t say yes to everything. Pick and choose what you like so you don’t just over-saturate yourself,” she advised.
