Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola Is Ready to Let Fans Back into Her Life

Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola made the surprising decision not to return to Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. While her decision shocked her castmates and fans alike, it all seems to have worked out for the best. Giancola managed to circumvent any drama with her ex, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and that’s worked out well. Sure, she missed out on a pretty big payday by passing on the show, but now engaged to Christian Biscardi, Giancola’s life is shaping up just fine. She is even ready to let fans back in, but she plans to do it on her own terms.

Sammi Giancola announced her next project

Giancola is finally ready to come back to the small screen, but she’s going to be doing it on YouTube. Giancola and her fiancé, Biscardi, announced that they are launching a YouTube channel together in an Instagram post. The couple did not, however, release a full video. If fans want to see the couple’s first video, they’ll need to get the subscriber count up to 50,000.

In one day, the couple managed to amass over 9,000 subscribers. Their first release, which is serving as a trailer to the upcoming channel, has amassed over 35,000 views in less than 24 hours. While the pair are off vacationing, their subscriber count continues to climb. There is no word on what the first video will be if they hit their subscriber goal, but from the looks of their trailer, there will be plenty of food and fun in the sun involved.

What will Sammi Giancola’s YouTube channel document?

Giancola and Biscardi are responding to fan’s desires to see the inner-workings of their life together. While Giancola has shared snapshots of the couple on Instagram and has discussed her relationship on her podcast, Just Sayin’, fans have yet to really see them interact in long-form videos. In fact, Biscardi remains a bit of a mystery, more than two years after he started dating the former reality TV star. Biscardi is not part of the entertainment industry.

The YouTube channel will focus on the couple’s life together, including the lead up to their wedding. Biscardi popped the question in March 2019, but the pair have yet to set an actual wedding date, according to In Touch Weekly. The couple also plans to share cooking and eating tips. Both are incredibly fit, so surely they’ll be cooking up some healthy meals.

Will the savvy TV personality ever return to MTV?

While Giancola is okay with returning to the limelight, it seems like she has no plans to ever return to MTV. She passed on the opportunity to join her former castmates in the show’s reboot and appears to be icing out her old friends. Sure, her decision was made to avoid her ex, but it doesn’t look like she’s missing the rest of the cast, either.

According to Us Weekly, Giancola has failed to respond to any of her former castmates in quite some time. Texts, phone calls, and emails have allegedly gone unanswered. Giancola was also not in attendance at Angelina Pivarnick’s wedding. Pivarnick married long-time beau, Chris Larangeira on Nov. 20. While Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, Jenni ‘Jwoww’ Farley and Deena Cortes were all in the bridal party, Giancola was off on vacation with her future spouse. Mike Sorrentino, Vinny Guadignino, Pauly Delvecchio and Ortiz-Magro were also in attendance.

It doesn’t seem like there is any bad blood between Giancola and her former castmates, though. She just appears to be putting space between herself and her previous life, including the people she spent those years with. It makes sense, too. After all, Giancola’s relationship with Ortiz-Magro was rife with drama, and frankly, it was pretty abusive if you look at it from all angles. The desire to cut ties with the people she knew during that time in her life isn’t out of the ordinary.
