Immediately after the news came out, fans started asking how they could apply. MTV has yet to reveal casting details, but MTV News did say to stay tuned for more information. Presumably, they'll announce casting details either on MTV.com or through Jersey Shore accounts. Or the guys will just share the details on social media. It would be a shame if they already secretly cast this, when so many fans seem to be excited to apply.
For now, we know that this version of Double Shot at Love will have 20 single women face off against each other, hoping to avoid the elimination ceremony. But Vinny, 31, and Pauly, 38, will also have to compete for the affections of the women. It's a two-way street.
Here are the official bios for both bachelors, per MTV:
Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio - Pauly 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 - Vinny is ready to get back into a relationship, but will the Staten Island keto-guido find someone to take home for Sunday family dinner?
Here's Jersey Shore's adorable video announcing the new show:
Honestly, they should just pick each other. That's true love right there. Who can compete?
This is a spinoff within a spinoff, which is par for the course for MTV. The original Double Shot at Love was a spinoff of A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila. On Double Shot, bisexual twins Erica "Rikki" Mongeon and Victoria "Vikki" Mongeon looked for love among 12 men and 12 women.
Vinny and DJ Pauly D are no strangers to reality TV, even beyond Jersey Shore. Pauly -- who announced in 2013 that he was father to a daughter named Amabella Sophia -- was part of E!'s Famously Single in 2016. Vinny had his own MTV talk show/reality show called The Show with Vinny, with celebs coming over to his home to talk and have dinner with the rest of his family. Vinny and his mother also got their own show on The Cooking Channel called Vinny & Ma Eat America.
Both Vinny and Pauly are now starring on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Season 2 just finished airing in December, but MTV confirmed Season 3 for 2019. There are a lot of changes ahead for Season 3, plus this new dating show which could add some intrigue (and more discussion of the weirdest places the boys have had sex). Here's what else is airing on TV in midseason 2019.
