Domineco Nessi turned out to be one of the best cast members on A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila. He had a lot rolled into one Italian meatball: class clown, snitch/instigator, and, by the end, a surprisingly lovable schlub.
So lovable, in fact, he might just be getting his own show in which he, like Tila, will be looking for love. Unlike Tila, however, it looks like he’ll just stick with the ladies.
I say might because some part of me just can’t quite believe that this show is going to get made. I wound up being charmed by Domenico by the time he was being eliminated from A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, but a big part of his appeal was as the underdog. Can the comedic relief transition to leading man? It didn’t really work out so well but The Bachelor Bob Guiney.
But who knows? Maybe for the mixed-up crazy kids that populate the world of A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, anyone can become a romantic lead. I bet few expected Dani to become quite the hit that she turned out to be when she made her initial appearance in the premiere.
So who will be angling for Domenico’s heart on the new show, apparently to be called That’s Amore? Maybe you!
The casting notice went out recently: “MTV is now seeking gorgeous females at least 21 years old who have the looks, outrageous personality and heart to win the love of MTV’s very own Italian stallion Domeico Nessi! Dominico wants his shot at love, and the search is on for his very own American sweetheart, a girl he can bring home to Mama!
We are casting the best America has to offer, so we’re looking for all types, Southern Belles, Big City Socialites, West Coast Surfer Girls, Sexy Farmers’ Daughters, and Beauty Queens so if you’re single, look hot in a bikini, and can hold your wine get ready for the Italian romantic adventure of a lifetime apply electronically now!”
I am also mildly skeptical because they spell the star of the show’s name wrong twice in their own press release. But hopeful romantics who are looking for an Italian stallion? And would be willing to settle for an amusing and sweet Italian…um, I don’t know, mule? Pony? Give it a shot!
