Gym, Tan, Strip! 'Jersey Shore' 's Vinny Guadagnino to Guest Host Chippendales Show in Las Vegas

The Jersey Shore star will be donning the iconic cuffs and collar to guest host the show for five weeks

The famed Chippendales show just added a beloved guido to its lineup: Vinny Guadagnino.

PEOPLE can exclusively announce that the Jersey Shore star is the latest celebrity donning the iconic cuffs and collar to guest host the show for five weeks at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Guadagnino will perform Friday through Sunday from April 26 through May 26.

“I have spent a lot of time in Vegas, I love it there,” says Guadagnino, 31. “Now, to be cast as guest host of Chippendales — wow, let’s do this! I guess my ‘Keto Guido’ diet is working!”

“We are really excited to have Vinny on board as our next celebrity guest host,” said Chippendales managing partner, Kevin Denberg. “He’s a fan favorite on the Shore and clearly has been working hard on his health and fitness making him a great fit for our award winning production at the Rio.”

Guadagnino is no stranger to the show: The cast recently filmed an episode of the Jersey Shore Family Vacation reboot at Chippendales during a trip to Vegas last year, and his costar Ronnie Ortiz-Magro guest-hosted the show for one night in 2011.
