In one of the more surprising pieces of news today, Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino revealed to MTV News that he used to be bullied in high school. As in, the same Vinny who's girls pant over and who is now the star of pretty much one of the most successful reality television shows ever. That Vinny.

"I was really awkward-looking and I got bullied a lot — especially by the hot girls," Vinny divulged to MTV, "I was cool enough to sit at the popular table with the hot girls, but at the same time, I wasn't the most popular kid at that table. They would make fun of me and it would really hurt me, because you don't want the girls thinking that you're a loser."

Well, at the very least, it's safe to say they definitely don't think that now.
