Pauly DelVecchio left season 1 of ‘Double Shot at Love’ single 

After dating 20-some women with his Jersey Shore pal Vinny Guadagnino, DelVecchio’s decision came down to Hall and Derynn Paige. When he told Paige her cab had arrived, fans thought that could only mean one thing — he and Hall were going to be together. But DelVecchio shocked everyone. 

“I’m rolling solo for now,” he told Hall. Heartbroken, she left the show and took her frustrations out online. After sharing screenshots of text conversations between her and DelVecchio, Hall was blocked from the Jersey Shore stars life for a bit. When she returned for season 2 of Double Shot at Love, things started off rocky, but slowly got better between the two. 

Pauly DelVecchio and Nikki Hall agreed to ‘take things slow’ on ‘Double Shot at Love’ Season 2 

During the reunion special when DelVecchio was asked about the status of his relationship with Hall, she abruptly left her chair and appeared next to him. Finally, everything fans had thought about Hall and DelVecchio’s relationship was confirmed.

“What you guys didn’t realize is right when they dropped her off at the airport, I’m sure she did a u-turn right to Pauly’s house,” Guadagnino joked. When asked if they were “officially living together,” both Hall and DelVecchio responded: “I guess you could say that.” 

“It kind of just happened,” Hall admitted. DelVecchio joked that Hall started moving her things slowly until eventually, she took over his closet. “Then she changed the bedding!” he laughed. 

“Now we get to spend real time with each other on a different type of level all together,” DelVecchio added. The two have only every lived together with roommates around. That made it difficult to establish a relationship and get to know one another. Now, being quarantined together, their relationship has been able to bloom.

Pauly DelVecchio says Nikki Hall’s love of cooking makes them ‘the perfect match’ 

Double Shot at Love fans know Hall loves to cook. She has her own series on Instagram called “Cooking With Nikki,” where she shares how-to videos of her favorite recipes. Hall’s cooking has been one of DelVecchio’s favorite things about living together. 

“She enjoys cooking, I enjoy eating,” DelVecchio said. “It’s the perfect match.” 

Aside from Hall’s cooking, DelVecchio said he has enjoyed merely spending time with her. From watching their favorite shows, going on hikes, or taking his motorcycles out, DelVecchio said he enjoys having someone “be there” for him. 

Keeping the relationship private has also helped Pauly DelVecchio and Nikki Hall form a strong bond

Since 2009, most of DelVecchio’s life has been documented on MTV. From Jersey Shore to The Pauly D ProjectJersey Shore: Family Vacation, and Double Shot at Love, fans have had a front-row seat to all of DelVecchio’s big moments. Aside from his daughter, Amabella Sophia, DelVecchio has been an open book for fans — until now.

“For one time in my life, I wanted to enjoy a moment for myself and not have to always put it out there for the world,” DelVecchio said. Hall added that he didn’t share much of their relationship with the world “to prove a point.” DelVecchio explained more, saying, “what’s real is real,” adding: “You don’t always have to take a photograph of [what’s going on]. Put your phone away for a second.” 

Many fans are happy to see the perpetually single Jersey Shore star finally settle down with Hall. While some fans have turned their minds to “When is the wedding?” DelVecchio and Hall seem to be enjoying each other’s company.
