Different worlds of reality TV are colliding on All Star Shore. Giannina Gibelli teased her romance with Blake Horstmann on the new show and admitted many people wouldn’t like it.

‘All Star Shore’ unites reality stars to compete

The new reality show has contestants living together in a shore house in the Canary Islands. They face off in competitions and face elimination. The winner gets the cash prize of $150,000. The cast includes stars from Jersey Shore, Bachelor in Paradise, Love Is Blind, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Love Island, The Circle, Geordie Shore, and more. 

Blake from The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise is one of those cast members. Gianniana from Love Is Blind is also competing. Their dating rumors started in January 2022 after they filmed the show.

In April, they eventually posted a picture of Blake having his arm around her. She posted it on her Instagram stories with her phone blocking most of his face.

Soon, fans will see Gianniana and Blake’s connection on the new show. But she revealed the rest of the cast wasn’t as excited about their new relationship.

“I think it’s safe to say that we weren’t shy about how we felt for each other and how comfortable we were,” she told People. “During the show, you’ll see some people being like, ‘Get a room. Can you please figure this out over there? I miss my boyfriend. I miss my husband. You’re making me jealous.'”

The Love Is Blind alum admitted fans might turn on them too. “By the end of it, yeah, you might get annoyed with us, but we were at bliss,” Gianniana said. “We were, like, in our honeymoon. So … I really don’t care.”

She revealed that when they first met, something felt “familiar” to her about Blake. Gianniana said she didn’t watch The Bachelorette but recognized Blake from promos of the dating show.
