'Temptation Island 2' tempter Tony resigns teaching position due to gay porno appearance


By Reality TV World staff, 10/13/2002 

Anthony Vanchieri, the "Temptation Island 2" male tempter and elementary school teacher who appeared in gay pornographic videos, has abandoned his fight to keep his job. Vanchieri quietly resigned on September 9th, but it was made public only this month because the Broward School Board in Florida will formally accept his request on October 15th.

The board suspended Vanchieri on June 18th as the first step toward firing him for "disgracing the profession." But Vanchieri said he would fight the suspension in an administrative hearing. "They are seeking to terminate him based on actions taken in his private life which have no direct impact on his ability to teach and had nothing to do with his profession as a teacher," Vanchieri's attorney, Steve Rossi, had argued.

Vanchieri still opposes any action by the state board of education to withdraw his teaching license, although he is not sure he will keep teaching, Rossi said.
