Hardcore Jersey Shore followers keep in mind Jonny “The Unit” Manfre, who was arrested throughout Season 5 for drug possession (he ended up getting out of it and paying a $125 superb). Sadly, we didn’t see him in final season’s Jersey Shore: Household Trip, and his social media accounts haven’t been up to date in years. He and Mike Sorrentino (aka, “The Scenario”) had been actually shut, so it’s unusual we haven’t heard something. What provides?
What precisely occurred to The Unit?
It looks like Jonny is totally off the grid and works within the renewable power enterprise in Salt Lake Metropolis. Though The Unit initially ventured into the health business after his time with Jersey Shore, it doesn’t appear like the previous actuality present star went very far with this. On his Instagram, he describes himself as “Half man, half wonderful, Animal love, NASM/Crossfit L1 Licensed, Writer/health vids, Photo voltaic (and sausage) King, Nationals NPC Physique Competitor.” He used to have a pair web sites too: Yourperfectabs.com and Jonnytheunit.com, that are each defunct.
Jonny’s final Instagram he posted was on Might 11, 2017. It reveals him typing away with a cute pup on his lap. “As you possibly can inform by the little man’s face, he wasn’t very impressed with my work,” he wrote within the caption. Curiously, he hasn’t up to date his Fb web page since 2017, both.
About 9 months in the past, one redditor talked about that his identify was introduced up throughout an episode of Jersey Shore: Household Trip however solely as a joke. Someone jokingly requested if they need to invite him to their get together.
Though his major social media pages haven’t been up to date in years, his LinkedIn *might* present us a clearer image of what Jonny is as much as lately. In line with his LinkedIn web page (it appears to actually be his — he makes use of the very same picture from his personal Fb web page), The Unit (who presumably goes by “Jonathan Manfre” now) is now within the enterprise of renewable power. Seems to be like The Unit is all grown up.
In his “About” part, he wrote, “My curiosity is in using and selling renewable power sources, not solely as a result of it makes all of the sense as a wiser, cleaner strategy to generate energy, but additionally as a result of it’s exponentially more economical than standard sources, leading to an financial windfall.”
LinkedIn reveals that he’s at present the enterprise proprietor of 10x Vitality, and has been for the previous 4 years. 10x Vitality has headquarters in Utah and New Jersey and is described as “an business innovator that caters to sellers and gross sales professionals across the nation by offering a singular platform to ship one of the best merchandise, providers, and installations on the lowest charges.”
That’s fairly a pivot from actuality TV and health, but when that’s what Jonny, I imply, Jonathan, is basically as much as lately, good for him! Renewable power is superior for the surroundings, so it’s nice to see the previous actuality star investing in a enterprise that’s truly good for the planet.
