Today is the day! Dancing with the stars is back and Vinny Guadagnino is representing Jersey Shore at the DWTS premiere.
The 31st season of DWTS back on Monday, September 19, 2022, first airing on Disney+. He performed a salsa on Bad Bunny’s ‘Tití Me Preguntó’.
Nicole Polizzi, better known as Snooki, gave her Jersey Shore comrade some advice before taking the stage, according to People. She appeared on the show in 2013, calling her time on DWTS “literally the best time of my life.”
Here’s what you need to know:
Fans of Vinny Guadagnino shared videos of his performance on Twitter and were shocked by his first dance at the premiere.
Fans were quick to point out the sexiness of his salsa.
“Right now I’m sweating so extremely hard from Vinny Guadagnino sexy salsa! That was so much fun and that’s my god’s name!” a fan wrote on Twitter.
Another fan said he would use some of Guadagnino’s moves for himself.
“Literally copied some dance moves from Vinny Guadagnino for my own personal use,” another fan wrote on Twitter.
Another fan said she loves him even more after his dance.
“I didn’t think I could love Vinny Guadagnino more, and then he chose Bad Bunny for his first dwts song,” Jessica Ivetich wrote: on Twitter.
Other fans sent words of encouragement to the Jersey Shore star.
“@VINNYGUADAGNINO you got this button, don’t let this get you down!!!!!!!!! @koko_iwasaki have you even better next week! Keep it up!” a fan wrote on Twitter.
“Beautiful salsa, Vinny Guadagnino and Koko Iwasaki!” Joshua Leclair wrote: on Twitter.
Polizzi told People that DWTS became a regular part of her life almost 10 years ago.
“I still talk to Sasha and everyone. It’s just such a beautiful environment. Everyone is so nice. They literally become your family. You become best friends with the cast. It’s just the best experience,” she told People while promoting her Cheez-It partnership.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino appeared in Season 11 of the show in 2010, but Polizzi told People she thinks Guadagnino has the potential to bring out the best in them all.
“I have a feeling Vinny will be absolutely amazing just because I feel like he’s the best dancer of all of us because it’s natural to him,” she told People. “But I thought, ‘Vinny, this is going to be the best time of your life.’ I’m like, ‘I would go back on that show in a heartbeat. It was stressful, but it was great.’ I was like, “Enjoy it, have the best time, but know it’s stressful and fun.”
Polizzi said she encouraged Guadagnino and told fans to vote for him.
“I was like, ‘Vinny, you better be top five.’ We should vote for him, people should vote for Vinny,” she told People.
