Chippendales welcomed the return of “Jersey Shore” star Vinny Guadagnino as their special celebrity guest host for a third residency with a red-carpet event on Friday, March 11, 2022.
His return also coincides with Chippendales celebrating its 20th anniversary at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
“I am so grateful to Chippendales and the fans for really making me feel like I belong on this stage and in Vegas,” Guadagnino said of his return to Chippendales. “The best part about doing this show is that it’s a family here and everyone welcomed me back as if I never left, including the fans.”
Guadagnino’s return was met with screams of joy as he once again stepped on stage and into the shower scene that made his last appearance “baring all” break the Internet. Guadagnino credits his physique to his Keto diet and creative workouts due to gyms being closed during the quarantine.
“I would go on runs and started riding my bike but when it got cold, I started jump roping a lot,” said Guadagnino. This new workout has inspired his new Instagram account, @vinnyjumps, and is incorporated into his Chippendales performance.
In addition to steaming up the stage with his shower scene, Guadagnino personally invited fellow Las Vegas headliner, Lady Gaga to the show as his “dream guest” to watch him in action on stage.
“Lady Gaga has got to come to Chippendales,” said Guadagnino. “It’s right up her alley – I’ll even give her a lap dance – I’ll do whatever I can to get her here!”
The 20th anniversary celebration was held at the Flirt Lounge inside the Chippendales Theatre Complex at the Rio where Vinny G. and the cast of Chippendales mingled with partygoers who enjoyed small bites provided by Guy Fieri’s El Burro Borracho, as well as cocktails.
Vinny Guadagnino’s limited engagement with Chippendales runs on Friday, March 11 through Sunday, April 10 (Friday through Sunday performances).
