When it was time for Chippendales to resume performances after the pandemic, producers quickly asked Vinny Guadagnino to come back for more. "We just picked up where we left off because I was kind of on a roll the first time that we did it," he said. "It has become a fun kind of side gig that I have."
In the weeks leading up to his Chippendales return, Vinny was diligent about his workout routine and diet. "I get into really strict mode when I'm preparing for the show," the Keto Guido Cookbook author shared with E! News. "Then, when I'm here, I'm kind of on cruise control. I kind of maintain what I've worked so hard for. I just got back from a 5-mile run. I do a bunch of classes here. The show keeps me active, but I try to enjoy my life too."
Don't underestimate the skills and swag of the Chippendales cast. "The guys are super talented," Vinny shared with E! News. "They're amazing dancers and singers, and it's all work. Everybody is changing in two seconds and jumping from number to number and doing backflips literally on stage. Check it out and you would know what I'm talking about."
One show moment gaining steam is a memorable shower scene. "It kind of fell into my lap—no pun intended," he teased. "It's almost like if Vinny did that, he set the bar pretty high and he doesn't have to do anything else." Spoiler: He sticks around for the rest of the show.
What's it really like to live in Las Vegas? For starters, Vinny says he's off the strip and not in "tourist mode" everyday. "During the week, I keep it very low key," he said. "I work out. I have a lot of friends up here that are locals so we go to the local gyms, local restaurants. I save all my energy and drinking and all that stuff for the weekend."
Vinny is ready to spread the love to all audience members, including celebrities. "If Lady Gaga is in town, I would give her a lap dance," he joked. "I honestly would think that she would love it just because she's so eccentric. But I'm also down to give Katy Perry a lap dance too and any of the other performers who are in town."
