It’s a difficult transition, but not an impossible one. The road from reality TV star to serious actor is a road that is less travelled, especially from the MTV Real World/Road Rules juggernaut, but there are a few exceptions out there. We all know about Jacinda Barrett and Jamie Chung’s recent success, but there’s a Road Ruler doing the MTV family proud: Dave Giuntoli!
Dave made his first appearance on the 12th installment of Road Rules. He then went on to prove he’s a formidable competitor on its sister show Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Gauntlet. He’s been hitting the Hollywood pavement ever since then and he’s finally landed his own show Grimm on NBC.
Catch a clip of Dave capturing the win on The Gauntlet below!
Pauly D is the only reason Jerzday is worth the wait.
Tyler: “While everyone was eating breakfast the morning of the final, I was puking up last night’s dinner. I am literally about to faint I’m so hungry. I’m shoving as much food down my throat as possible.”
Johnny: “Bet you guys wish you had Tyler on your side for this one!”

Anyone but Vinny! One third of the hysterical, grenade whistle blowing, DTF, party ensemble that is MVP (Mike, Vinny, Pauly D) of MTV’s wildly popular Jersey Shore has left the house. Sources have told TMZ that Vinny left the house after an altercation with a cast member and because he was missing his family in Staten Island.
Though the cast just came back from filming season 4 in Italy, they were immediately ushered back to the Shore to film the 5th season. If anything, Vinny might have felt a little burned out and needed to take a breather from the rest of the house. Here’s hoping his leave is only temporary and he’ll pull a Sammi Sweetheart and return to the house after a few days.
Are you upset that Vinny left the house? Do you think he’ll be back?
