Last summer, MTV premiered a new show featuring Jersey Shore star, Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio and Vinny Guadagnino. The two bros participated in a reality TV competition similar to The Bachelor, called Double Shot at Love.

What happened with ‘Jersey Shore’ star DJ Pauly D on ‘Double Shot at Love’ Season 1?

During season 1 of Double Shot at LoveJersey Shore star Pauly D seemed to fall for Nikki Hall. His final two women were Hall and Derynn Paige. However, in the finale, Pauly D shocked viewers — and his lovely ladies — when he decided to remain single instead of having a relationship with either.

The DJ explained that he didn’t feel a strong enough connection with Derynn, and he thought that Nikki was too over the top in love with him.

“Last season on Double Shot at Love, Pauly D and Vinny looked for love with 20 beautiful women, but found friendship instead,” reads MTV’s description of the show. “For Season 2, the guys reunite with their favorite exes in Las Vegas, and drama comes with them.” 

Hall is back for the second season; however, the two have not spoken more than a few words over the first four episodes. On the reality TV show, it looks like the two are at odds, but in real life, fans believe something else is going on.

How do ‘Jersey Shore’ fans know that Pauly D is dating Nikki Hall in real life?

Fans have several solid reasons to believe that Pauly D is dating Hall in real life. The first bit of evidence occurred after the show aired. Hall leaked messages between her and Pauly D. The exchange shows a much more affectionate side of the star. 

“I love u just the way u are,” the DJ said in The Blast’s exposed messages.

Another source confirmed they saw Pauly D with Hall at one of his shows in Avalon, New Jersey, in December 2019. 

“Our sources say the two were very flirty, all over each other, and just like at the Vegas club in October; they spent a lot of time smooching,” TMZ reported on Dec. 6, 2019.

More recently, fans continuously point out that Hall films her IGTV cooking videos in Pauly D’s kitchen. She even posts photos of herself in his home. 

“They’ve been in a relationship for almost a year, and she’s been living with him for at least six months,” another fan wrote on Reddit. “She has a whole cooking show on IGTV that is filmed in Pauly’s kitchen. She may have temporarily taken them down right now bc of the show, but currently, when she goes on live on Instagram right now, she is usually in Pauly’s kitchen or living room, and you can hear Pauly talking in the background.”
