Who Is Jionni LaValle? 5 Things to Know About Snooki’s Soulmate
Now that Jionni LaValle is an official part of the Jersey Shore famiglia, it’s time we got to know him better. Yes, we know that he’s a lovable goofball, but do you know what he does for a living? His lifetime goals and career dreams? Hopefully, these five facts will paint a clearer picture.
He has two jobs. Earlier this year, Snooki tweeted that Jionni “owns his own ATMs.” No word on just how many he owns, but one report suggested that an ATM owner can make $810 per month, per ATM. Not too shabby! Also, Jionni has his own T-shirt company called NJ Fatman. If you watched Snooki & JWOWW closely enough, you would have noticed Jionni wearing shirts that said, “Give me a scotch, I’m starving.” Those are Jionni’s Ts!
He’s a family man. Jionni, Snooki, and Lorenzo all live in his parents’ basement in East Hanover, NJ; and Jionni told Roger Mathews in an episode of Snooki & JWOWW that he knew everything there is to know about raising a baby because he’d seen his family members do it several times.
He wanted to be a teacher. Can you imagine how cute it would be if, one day in the future, Snooki returned to veterinary school and became an animal doctor, and Jionni went back to his original career dream of becoming a teacher like his two older brothers? They would go from international superstars to The LaValles down the street, living modestly and hosting barbeques. If only!
He’s a former wrestler. Before meeting Snooki, Jionni had a third job, as a youth wrestling coach. Snooki has said that if she and Jionni had a boy, that he would be a "strong wrestler". Let’s just hope it doesn’t look anything like that high-kick battle between Jionni and Roger on Snooki & JWOWW.
