Pauly D and Vinny's 'Double Shot at Love' Girls Are Already Very Popular on Instagram
It looks like DJ Pauly D didn't find "the one" with a Megan Fox lookalike on Game of Clones — so now, he's looking for love on a reality dating show alongside his Jersey Shore BFF Vinny Guadagnino.
MTV is rebooting Double Shot at Love — remember Rikki and Vikki Mongeon? — featuring the famous guidos in an attempt to find them their perfect meatball. "Sometimes the Bachelor life isn't for every-buddy," a first look at the show explains before Vinny asks, "Will you accept these bros?" The Italian flag-colored roses also accented Pauly D and Vinny's sleeveless tuxedos perfectly.
While we are sure that each of the 20 girls who will compete on the show are gym, tan, laundry experts — and know the importance of t-shirt time — some of these contestants look like they came straight from the boardwalk for their chance to date Jersey royalty. And we're here for it. Keep scrolling to see all the lucky ladies who will appear on Double Shot at Love when it premieres Thursday, April 11.
1. Alysse Joyner
Not only is the 24-year-old from Brooklyn a model, she can also throw down in the kitchen. She has an Instagram page called @lysseskitchen dedicated to her cooking, and we already spotted some Italian dishes.
Do we sense a love connection with self-proclaimed foodie and former Vinny and Me Eat America star Vinny? We think so.

Along with being a fellow New Jersey native, Derryn, 25, is an Instagram influencer — she has over 50k followers already — and has her own clothing business called Goddess of Easton.
3. Marissa Lucchese
Also from the tri-state area, Marissa is a makeup artist and has her own line of fake eyelashes. This 22-year-old has beauty and brains!
4. Zuljeily Andino
Zuly, 30, is a former beauty queen — she was crowned Miss Puerto Rico Petite in 2011 — and current model living in Miami, which a favorite destination for both Pauly D and Vinny.
5. Shira Tran
Based in New Orleans, Shira, 27, is a hairstylist, makeup artist, and lash tech. And she has a pretty impressive online portfolio. Maybe she can update Pauly D's blowout?

The 28-year-old model and marketing maven is from Wisconsin but currently residing in Nashville — and she loves showing off her tattoos on Instagram.
7. Nadya Erazo
Nadya, 29, is a makeup artist and "fitness bunny" — as well as an Instagram model, duh.

Pauly and Vinny better not mess with Deserée, 37 — she's a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. And has the muscles to prove it!

One of the youngest contestants at 22, Mish is from Tustin, California. According to her Instagram bio, she has a passion for travel and is obsessed with music. Could dating a DJ be in her future?
14. Cate Lepera
Cate definitely has her Jersey look down thanks to her Snooki-inspired poof and love of leopard print. The 27-year-old is from Staten Island, New York — just like Vinny. Wink, wink.
15. Brittnay Dawson
Producers went out of the box when they casted Brittnay, 33, a blonde beauty from Nebraska to date a couple of Italian guidos. "I’m back from a really fun experience where I have been doing a little bit traveling and a whole lot of self-reflecting," she recently wrote on social media.

17. Maria Elizondo
This 22-year-old Cuban beauty is here to win the competition — and she has a good chance seeing as she already has nearly 100K followers on Instagram. In a recent YouTube video, she revealed she applied for another reality show — Are You the One? — because of her 34-year-old ex.
18. Holly Gurbisz
The 27-year-old Jersey beauty's Instagram is currently set to private, but her bio reads, "True beauty is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside." We don't think she's going to last too long with these guys...
