'Jersey Shore' Star

Some of My Co-Stars

Will FAIL in TV

9/6/2012 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vinny from "Jersey Shore" believes some of his co-stars are destined for failure after the show wraps up later this year ... telling TMZ only the ones with a BRAIN will succeed in TV.

Vinny was hangin' in L.A. last night when we asked how he felt about MTV getting rid of "Shore" after its 6th season.

"They didn't get rid of it ... they just want us to go out on top," Vinny told us ... adding, "Best show in MTV history."

But when we asked if the "Jersey" cast will have better success in their own spin-off shows, Vinny replied, "I don't know about ALL of us ... but I think whoever has imagination and talent will make it."

Unfortunately, Vinny didn't name any names.

Still, Vinny told us the show could be a major launching pad for one of his co-stars ... noting Adam Sandler started on MTV ("Remote Control" anyone?) ... "and then he became a big movie star."

As for Vinny's next project, the reality star wouldn't tell us what's next on his plate ... but insists, "Good things."

is this guy serious? Of all the cast, he had the least personality BY FAR. Hope he realizes that

How does "bottom of the barrel" go out "on top"? Maybe on Opposite Day?

And "the best show in MTV history"? Ummm... no! That would be either "Unplugged" for bringing handmade acoustic guitar music back to the mainstream audience's attention, or "Beavis and Butt-head" by Mike Judge for breaking new ground in television and opening doors for creative people who had no chance of ever having their work broadcast before. "Jersey Shore" had Snooki peeing herself on the dancefloor. That's all you really need to know about that...

This guy is one sorry loser. His 15 min are long over with. He has an ego that is beyond belief. Wish he would just go away. Enough is enough.

This show lost its thunder in season 3. Should have rotated the cast like the real world.

Most of them have already failed at LIFE, losers.... money does not buy you respect or admiration nor does acting like an asshat on TV for money

Failure is based on personal goals. Maybe all the casts members don't want to pursue a future in television. "Celebrity" is fleeting, often elusive and, unfortunately, today...rarely based on talent. So, Vinnie, if you were actually "intelligent" would have kept that comment to yourself. Because...what you may call success...maybe someone else's version of failure and vice versa. Keep it classy and keep it moving.
