CABS ARE HEREEEEE, but not the entire crew is here.
This week marked “Disney+ Week” on the competition dance show, and Vinny and Koko danced a “Luca”-inspired samba.
The pair scored their highest score yes this week with a 29/40.
Vinny Dances His Way To His Highest Score Yet!
Vinny had some extra people in his cheering section. Those people were none other than his “Jersey Shore” brothers Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and DJ Pauly D.
Did someone say “MVP?”
Vinny attributes his high score to their attendance at the show. He told Page Six, “I mean, just having them there, having my boys there — we were all laughing backstage.”
“We’re MVP, baby!” he continued. “We’re a group and they’re here to support me.”
His dance partner agreed that M and P help V perform.
The Secret Sauce Is… M.V.P.
“I want them here every week because [Vinny] did great today!” she admitted. “I’m like, ‘Maybe Pauly and Mike are good luck charms,’ I’m here for it.”
However, what people may not know is that more of his ‘JS’ family were supposed to be in attendance.
Polizzi explained the reason she and Jenni were absent on an episode of her podcast, “It’s Happening.”
Snooki & JWOWW Were Supposed To Be In The ‘DWTS’ Crowd
During the October 7th episode of her podcast, Polizzi told her co-host, Joey Camasta, “I was gonna go surprise Vinny, because the boys are going out to see him on “Dancing with the Stars.” And I told you guys that if he makes it to Disney week, I want to fly out and bring Giovanna, and me and Jenni were supposed to go and bring our daughters and it didn’t end up working out.”
If you didn’t know, Polizzi is a MASSIVE Disney fan and she previously competed on ‘DWTS’ season 17.
Unfortunately, she got eliminated before she could compete during Disney Week during her season.
So, why didn’t their trip to support Vinny work out?

“It was 11-thousand-dollars. Literally, like two First Class tickets from Newark to Los Angeles… eleven grand! I was like, ‘alright, bye,’” she said to Camasta.
Of course, Polizzi, Jenni and the rest of his co-stars were supporting Vinny from the east coast.
Vinny noted this while speaking to Page Six telling the outlet, “I mean, ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is like Nicole’s favorite show.”
The Chippendale’s dancer actually appeared on a different episode of “It’s Happening” and opened up about his early days on ‘DWTS.’
“Who would’ve thought that stripping has turned into a life-long career of ballroom dancing?” Camasta asked jokingly.

“A lot of people keep saying, ‘Oh you do Chippendales, so you’re gonna know how to ballroom dance.’ I’m just like, I take a shower onstage and shake my a** for like two eight counts and that’s it. This is nothing like that,” Vinny explained.
The reality TV star remained tight-lipped about his ‘DWTS’ gig to the rest of his ‘JS’ family
This thoroughly “annoyed” Polizzi and she demanded an answer.
“Well, first of all I was under strict legal guidelines not to. I also found out about it a few days before [it was announced],” he said in defense.
“Dancing with the Stars” returns to Disney+ next Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
