MTV has picked up a new “Jersey Shore” spinoff, allowing fans of the show to vie to win the hearts of its two biggest bachelors, Vinny Guadagnino and DJ Pauly D.
Announced by the network on Friday, the reality dating series “Double Shot at Love With DJ Pauly D & Vinny” will see two of the show’s stars attempt to find love from a group of 20 contestants while simultaneously competing against one other for the affection of the contestants as well.
No premiere date has been announced, but the series is slated to premiere later this year.
Per MTV, “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?” and “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?”
The original “Jersey Shore” became a breakout hit for MTV in its first run in 2009, thanks to the show’s unforgettable personalities, including Angelina Pivarnick, Jennifer “JWoww” Farley, Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio, Ronald “Ronnie” Ortiz-Magro, Samantha “Sammi Sweetheart” Giancola, Vincenzo “Vinny” Guadagnino and Deena Nicole Cortese.
The show was revived under the title “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” last year, bringing back the original cast members for another go nearly a decade later. A third season of the revival is already slated to air later on MTV this year.
Like “Jersey Shore” and “Family Vacation,” “Double Shot at Love” will be produced by MTV, SallyAnn Salsano and 495 Productions.
