Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola Says Yes to the Dress

Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola has kept to herself since the MTV original Jersey Shore wrapped in 2012 after six seasons. Her tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship with roomie Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was one of the unfortunate highlights of the series. 

Fortunately, Giancola has moved on to bigger and better things. Currently, she is in the process of planning a wedding! The former Jersey Shore star recently purchased her wedding gown and took to social media to share her experience with her fans.

Who is Christian Biscardi?

On Mar. 5, 2019, Giancola got engaged to her boyfriend Christian Biscardi. They have been dating since 2017. The New Jersey native is from Washington Township, a town not far from Giancola’s home in Hazlet.

Based on his social media posts, Giancola’s fans have gathered that Biscardi is a man that loves cars and values family — he posts a lot of photos with his mom.

Much of their personal life is private because that’s the way Giancola wants it. “It’s kind of exciting,” she explained to In Touch Weekly. “He’s no one in the business, it’s just somebody. I’m learning to keep my relationship stuff a little more private — so that’s all I’m gonna say about it,” Giancola said. 

When MTV revived the series with Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Giancola opted out to avoid “potentially toxic situations.” Instead, she wanted to focus on her business and her relationship with then-boyfriend Biscardi. The couple owns a company that is centered around online fitness — fitting, considering Giancola’s history of GTL (gym, tan, laundry).

I get to marry my other half, best friend and soulmate. I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you @_biscardi I love you!! #Fiance #MrsBiscardi #Stillcryingtearsofhappiness.” 

Giancola’s former cast mates couldn’t have been happier for her, taking to the comments to celebrate. Jenni “JWoww” Farley wrote: “Omg omg omg !!!! I’m so freaking happy for you.” Pauly DelVecchio added, “Congats Sam!!!” Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was the most excited, commenting, “OMG I’M SCREAMING SAMANTHA! I LOVE YOU!! You deserve the world and I love him!!” 

Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ says ‘YES’ to the dress 

The former Jersey Shore star took to Instagram once again to announce that she said “yes to the dress.” And no, it’s not the one pictured in the photo! 

Giancola didn’t reveal any details about the wedding gown she chose for her upcoming nuptials, but she did interview the Bridal Manager at Castle Couture to create a resource for fans going through the process of buying their own dresses. 

The video was posted to the couple’s YouTube channel, Sam and Christian TV. Together, they create videos about their favorite recipes, wedding planning, and home renovations. 

Giancola and Biscardi are taking their time setting a wedding date, but Giancola is making quick work of the big tasks, like finding a dress. The 33-year-old recently celebrated her birthday and seems to be enjoying the wedding planning process.
