Though many of his Jersey Shore co-stars have settled down with families of their own, Vinny Guadagnino is seemingly still on the market. In 2019 the MTV reality star attempted to find "the one" on his own reality show, Double Shot at Love, with BFF and co-star DJ Pauly D. But, finding true love on a dating show didn't work out.
Since then, Vinny has been linked to several women, but is the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star dating anyone at the moment? Here's what we know about the Keto Guido's relationship status.
Who is Vinny from 'Jersey Shore' dating?
Jersey Shore fans can admit that there is undeniable chemistry between Vinny and his co-star Angelina Pivarnick. While the two have hooked up in the past, they never officially dated. However, on a recent 2023 episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Vinny tells cameras that "it's possible" he could end up with Angelina.
For now, it seems like the two are still just flirty friends.
Aside from Angelina, Vinny and his Dancing With the Stars co-star Gabby Windey exchanged flirty Instagram messages in November 2022, according to InTouch Weekly. However, their rumored romance was never confirmed. Vinny has also been connected to Too Hot to Handle's Francesca Farago and Double Shot at Love contestants, Alysse Joyner and Maria Elizondo.
Prior to his reality dating show, Vinny dated model Elicea Shyann, but their relationship ended in 2018. So, is Vinny ready to settle down? While Vinny has not confirmed his current relationship status, it seems the 35-year-old may still be looking for love.
"I am a very complex person — there are elements to me that are nerdy, then there are elements to me that are ratchet," he previously told People. "So, I like someone that has all that balance, someone that I can binge-watch some nerdy documentaries with, but then knows how to dance and twerk in the club."
As to who the Jersey Shore is searching for, Vinny wants a woman who is "independent."
"She has to have so much of her own career going on, she doesn’t need me for anything," he added. "I want to be her fan."
As for a type of girls that Vinny is physically attracted to, he prefers “mixed races, or different ethnicities.” He explained during an interview with The Cut: "[I like] the opposite of me. I’ve only dated like, one Italian girl.” While he’s physically attracted to a certain type of look, the reality star also values being able to open up on an emotional level to someone.
Who is Vinny’s ex-girlfriend Elicea Shyann?
Fans first met Elicea Shyann during the intro package for Season 1 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. However, their relationship quickly took a wrong turn when she heard that Vinny was flirting with other girls while filming in Miami with his castmates.
The fighting seemingly continued off-screen and the two called it quits in April 2018. Telling Us Weekly of their split, Vinny explained at the time: “I love her. She’s a great girl. Long distance... She’s in California and I live in New York. It’s just too hard to keep up. I don’t regret anything. I really care about the girl."
