MTV Releases Premiere Date & First Promo for ‘A Double Shot At Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny’

“Grenades need not apply!”

Jersey Shore stars Vinny Guadagnino and DJ Pauly D are hoping to find the guidettes of their dreams on their new dating show A Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny and, according to the new promo released Thursday by MTV, viewers won’t have to wait long to watch it all go down.

MTV announced that the dating show— which will have the ‘Jersey Shore’ BFFs looking for their “swolemates” among 20 women— will premiere on April 21.

In the first promo, which very much mocks promos for ABC’s The Bachelor, Vinny and Pauly D are sporting sleeveless tuxes (naturally), and grooming to meet their ladies.

“Sometimes the ‘Bachelor’ life isn’t for every ‘buddy’,” the voice over states. 

See what they did there? 

The guys are surrounded by ‘Bachelor’-esque red rose petals (which have been mixed with green and white petals to represent their Italian heritage, obviously). 

“Will you accept these bros?” Vinny asks, obviously playing off the famous ‘Bachelor’ phrase.

As The Ashley previously reported, ‘A Double Shot at Love’ will work sort of like ‘The Bachelor.’

“Ronnie, man, stop callin’ bro. You still can’t be on our show!”

“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,” a January press release from MTV reads.

“While the men may get to choose who stays and who goes, the women get to decide whose love they’re competing for,” Page Six reports.

In a tweet posted Thursday, Vinny revealed that he and Pauly will actually be living in the same house as their 20 potential soulmates.

“@DJPauly D and I are living in a house with 20 women. What could go wrong?” he tweeted. “Watch the season premiere of @MTVShotAtLove on Jerzday, April 11th!” 

DJ Pauly D has been very active in his search for the love of his life. He recently starred on MTV’s Game of Clones, where he dated seven Megan Fox lookalikes. (The show is currently airing but was taped last summer.) He was unsuccessful in finding lasting love, though.

  1. In the end they will marry an ordinary girl not related with reality shows… almost everyone on Bachelor type of shows.

  2. I’m giving it one episode, only because I like Pauly and Vinnie on Jersey Shore, but if the 1st episode sucks…I’m done. I didn’t mind A Shot At Love with Tila Tequila, but the Double Shot At Love with the Icki twins was pretty bad. MTV was trying to compete with the epic dating shows on VH1 at that time, and couldn’t do it.

  3. If it’s as bad as that clone dating show…I’ll pass. If it’s more like Flavor of Love/Rock of Love then I am in.

    1. So funny you mention those shows…my daughter and I both had the flu this entire week…she opted for the living room couch and cartoons, I opted for my bed and the TV was not working so I went to amazon prime video on my iPad and watched both rock of love and flavor of love…all week long. Remember daisy of love? Good ole days of VH1.

      1. Flavor of Love was pretty insane back in the day! When Pumkin spit on New York? They replayed that clip so many times! I wonder what she’s doing these days. Still teaching? Lol.

        1. LOL remember that one girl named “Somethin” popped on the floor during the elimination ceremony?…and Flav was like wow I think I gave her the right name cuz that was really Somethin…

      2. I use to love Daisy of Love!…I remember she was obsessed with that London guy, but he kept leaving lol. I loved all those ratchet VH1 TV shows…I Love New York, Daisy of Love, Rock of Love, Flavor of Love (GIVE IT UP DEELISHIS YOU LOOK LIKE A MAN!), I Love Money, Charm School, Real Chance at Love….I’m still upset about VH1 being forced cancel Megan Wants a Millionaire because one of her millionaires was an actual murderer.

        Those shows were one of a kind…no shows since then been able to capture that ratchet TV magic.

        1. Lolololol!!!
          I actually don’t ferment Daisy of love….
          But yes! That shows were funny!
          Wow, so long ago… Showing our age 🤣
