Giannina Gibelli kissed James Tindale on ‘All Star Shore’

It didn’t take long for the single reality stars to start hooking up on All Star Shore. The second episode showed the cast partying together. 

Giannina got into the hot tub, and Blake Horstmann from The Bachelorette eagerly followed. James Tindale from Geordie Shore told Joey Essex from The Only Way is Essex that he was also interested in her. 

“You got to understand it’s very early days. We both like the same girl,” James said in his confessional. Joey noticed they were in the hot tub together and decided to crash it.

More cast members joined them to play a drinking game. Blake made it clear in his confessional that he didn’t want his first kiss with Giannina there, so he picked questions. However, Giannina decided kiss. Blake volunteered to kiss her, but she kissed his neck instead. 

It was James’ turn, and he picked kiss. He then passionately kissed Giannina on the lips. “F*ck, that sucks,” Blake said in his confessional. “It’s not even she kissed him. It’s the way she kissed him.” After this, Angelina was very angry with Giannina and accused her of playing the guys.

“You and Blake are really cute, I must say,” Angelina told her. She later added, “He’s a really good guy.” Giannina revealed she wouldn’t sleep in Blake’s bed because she wants to take her time getting to know him.

“It’s amazing because then when you get out of here, it’ll be better,” Angelina said. “You want your first time to be romantic.” Giannina said, “Well, that’s why I didn’t kiss him in the jacuzzi.” The Love Is Blind star added, “Because I didn’t want it to be in front of everybody.”

Angelina admitted she thought Giannina was playing with his heart and apologized for getting upset. The Jersey Shore star said they have squashed their problems and will have a new friendship.
