Vinny Guadagnino Talks About His Hopes for ‘Double Shot at Love’ Season 3

After two seasons of Double Shot at Love, Vinny Guadagnino remains a single man. He left season 1 with Alysse Joyner, but his alleged lack of communication when they weren’t allowed to see each other caused their relationship to fizzle out quickly. In Double Shot at Love Season 2, the reality TV star rekindled his romance with season 1 contestant Maria Elizondo. Despite their Las Vegas hookup, Guadagnino was still single when the season ended. 

Now, Guadagnino is hoping the third time is the charm. Guadagnino shares what he’s hoping to experience in Double Shot at Love Season 3.

Vinny Guadagnino is the only single ‘Jersey Shore’ roommate 

“I am the last person on Jersey Shore that is still single,” Guadagnino explains in a teaser for DSAL Season 3. “I think it is starting to be my time to find somebody.” 

Thanks to his roommates who are married or coupled off, Guadagnino has a good idea of “what to do” in relationships. “I learn a lot [about] relationships from Jersey Shore, but most importantly, I learn what not to do,” he adds. 

Over the years, Guadagnino has watched his roommates get married and start families together. “I’m learning a lot from them and would love that for myself,” he says. 

Vinny Guadagnino feels ‘set up for success’ in ‘Double Shot at Love’ Season 3 

This is Guadagnino’s third time living with a group of potential girlfriends. With all that experience comes growth. 

“I am definitely set up for success here,” says Guadagnino. “I’ve done this before. I know what I want and what I don’t want.” Using the wisdom he gained in seasons 1 and 2, Guadagnino plans to take his time getting to know the women of season 3 and potentially entering a relationship with one of them.

“I’m looking for something real,” Guadagnino says, citing a woman who can fit into his reality TV lifestyle with the lights and cameras around most of the time. “I’m not looking for some TV s—. There are real people here. Let’s really talk, let’s really have a connection. And then let’s really see where it goes after that.” 

DJ Pauly D and Nikki Hall are #CouplesGoals for the ‘Keto Guido’

In addition to the wisdom he gained in seasons 1 and 2, Guadagnino has Pauly DelVecchio and his girlfriend, Nikki Hall, ready to help him find love. As a couple who formed a relationship on reality television, there’s no one better to guide Guadagnino on his journey. 

“Pauly took his time and it ended up working out for him in the long run,” Guadagnino explains. “I thought that I would be wifed up before Pauly, but I am so happy and looking forward to this experience.”

Seeing Hall and DelVecchio’s relationship blossom has been a beacon of hope for Guadagnino. “There was a lot going on the first time,” he adds. Instead of competing with DelVecchio for a “shot at love,” Guadagnino says “it’s all about the ‘Keto Guido'” now.

“I don’t like being the center of attention and I grew up not getting girls,” Guadagnino concludes. But now that he has 17 women vying for his affection, Guadagnino admits “it doesn’t suck.” Tune in to Double Shot at Love Season 3 beginning Thursday, Sept. 16 on MTV.
