A new show is in the works that should prove polarizing in much the same way “Jersey Shore” seemed to polarize viewers. MTV announced a greenlight today for “Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny,” a dating competition in which contestants will try to win the hearts of “Jersey Shore Family Vacation’s” iconic bromance duo.
The show is set to premiere later this year, with 20 contestants angling for a hookup with Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio and Vinny Guadagnino, who MTV says are “reality TV’s most-eligible bachelors and ready to find their perfect match.”
“Each episode, the contestants will face off against one another hoping to avoid the elimination ceremony while the boys must also compete for the affection of the contestants as well — making this reality-dating show unlike any other,” MTV says in today’s official announcement, which also offers the following blurbs on the show’s two central characters:
- Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio continues to tour the world DJing while holding down a Las Vegas residency, but are any of the contestants ready to keep up with his luxurious lifestyle?
- Vinny Guadagnino is ready to get back into a relationship, but will the Staten Island keto-guido find someone to take home for Sunday family dinner?
“Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny” is produced by MTV, SallyAnn Salsano and 495 Productions.
