It appears Vinny Guadagnino’s fist-pumping days on the “Jersey Shore” may be over.
Vinny, who along with his series castmates has been filming Season 5 back in Seaside Heights, N.J., following a jaunt to Italy for Season 4, has reportedly packed up and left the “Shore” house – for good.
According to Us Weekly, Vinny was seen last Wednesday grabbing his suitcases and hopping into a taxi in the middle of the night. However, he returned to the house the next day after spending a night in a hotel.

It appears his return was short-lived, however, as TMZ reported he left “for good” on Friday and returned to his family’s home in Staten Island.
According to TMZ, sources close to the show said Vinny was feeling “burned out” and “homesick.”
“I don’t think he will be back,” a separate source told Us Weekly.
Reps for MTV told both outlets they wouldn’t comment on the news.
If Vinny were to leave, it may mean one less face to replace if MTV decides to overhaul the cast with a new bunch of guidos & guidettes.
Amid reports last month that the original cast would soon all be replaced, a rep for MTV told Access Hollywood that “We love the present cast, and their summer adventures have just begun. We currently have no plans to recast the show.”
Season 4 of “Jersey Shore,” set in Italy, will debut on August 4 on MTV. No airdate for season 5, which is currently in production, has been announced.
