Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola Engaged to Justin May, Vinny Guadagnino Trolling with His Own Proposal

In a surprising turn of events, Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino revealed on Tuesday, April 2, that his recent proposal was nothing but an elaborate April Fool's joke. Taking to Instagram Story in the morning, Vinny shared a screenshot of his proposal post and captioned it, "Damn 300K on the April fools joke. Yall really want me to get married."

The prank came on the heels of fellow Jersey Shore cast member Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola's real engagement announcement. Sammi shared a slideshow of proposal pictures with her fiancé Justin May, confirming that her engagement was not a joke and tagging the jeweler who created her ring. The post garnered support from her cast mates, who congratulated her on the exciting news.

While Vinny's prank received mixed reactions from fans and friends, he ultimately confirmed that it was a hoax, leaving everyone relieved that he wasn't actually tying the knot.
