Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Gave Vinny Guadagnino Advice Before His Time on DWTS
Polizzi told People that DWTS became a permanent part of her life nearly 10 years ago.
“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,” she told People while promoting her Cheez-It partnership.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino appeared on Season 11 of the show in 2010, but Polizzi told People she thinks Guadagnino has the potential to do the best out of all of them.
“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 told People. “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.”
Polizzi said she encouraged Guadagnino and told fans to vote for him.
“I was like, ‘Vinny, you better be top five.’ We got to vote for him. People got to vote for Vinny,” she told People.
