So, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola might've been "just friends" with Arvin Lal when she texted him behind Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's back during Season 3 of Jersey Shore, but after seeing what he looks like now, we're not surprised he caused drama between the on-again, off-again couple. It all started when Sammi and Ronnie got into one of their explosive blow-out fights that resulted in Sammi briefly leaving the shore house. While home, the brunette beauty texted Arvin and told him to meet her out at the Jersey club Karma once she returned to the show. Unfortunately for Sammi, Arvin was also friends with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino — and didn't hold back in spilling the dirty details to him, which naturally resulted in yet another feud between Ron and Sam.
So, what is Arvin up to today? Well, not only is he in peak physical condition, but he's also incredibly successful. According to his Instagram page, he's the CEO of Shredz, a weight loss supplement company. In fact, if his business is doing as well as reports claim, he might have even more money than the regulars of the MTV reality show.

– I spent almost a decade working my way up the corporate ladder before I decided to leave and become an entrepreneur. During my time there, I wore a suit every day, made sure my shoes were polished, and that my double windsor knot for my tie of the day was spot on perfect. . I learned a lot of lessons from my experience in a corporate setting. Being involved with marketing strategies and business models that generated Billions of dollars a year, I took every day as a true blessing and worked my ass off. I knew that if I paid attention to every detail and put in all the effort I could possible generate, I would learn things that would change my life. . Today, I’m working from the couch. I call this relaxing over the weekend, since I spent close to 18 hours working from the office yesterday. . Whether you are working out of a corporate office, your couch at home, or a fast food restaurant, there is one thing that you should always strive for, and it makes no difference what your job is: Approach each day with your best foot forward, pay attention to the details, and strive to do your best. Whatever your work may be, you are learning something that not everyone has the opportunity to learn, and that can make all the difference. Most of all, whatever you were yesterday….be better than that today.
As for reality TV? Don't expect Arvin to be gracing the small screen again anytime soon. The stud doesn't seem to think too fondly of his Jersey Shore experience. In fact, as he told Brown Girl Magazine in 2013, he believes his 15 seconds of reality fame would only work against his business ambitions. "Television, and especially reality television, is very misleading. The perception of reality TV has a negative stigma. Because of that, I'm swimming against the tide when trying to gain people's trust. The one positive thing is that the age demographic that we target is the same demographic that watched Jersey Shore."

"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will." – Vince Lombardi It doesn't matter how intelligent you are, or how strong you are, what matters is how hard you're willing to work to get what it is you want most. In this office we hold each other accountable every single day, we trust in one another, and we believe in each other. We all have a vision and a goal to change the lives of the many people that have joined this movement. No one is better than the other, I still sweep the floor of this office every night before I lock it. Whether it's the dishes, a presentation, or a multimillion dollar project, we will do what it takes to Get it Done.
