After being dumped by Snooki via voicemail, Emilio Masella is now on the hunt for love — and Spencer Pratt (???) is going to help him find it!
Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi may have broken his heart heart, but Emilio Masella knows there are other fish in the sea. This is why the Jersey Shore star’s ex-boyfriend has decided to team up with The Hills villain Spencer Pratt for his own dating show: Fist Pumping For Love!
“Spencer was trying to get in touch with me through Twitter, and somehow he got me,” the 21-year-old Golds Gym trainer tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, confiding, “This all happened yesterday [April 28].”
Emilio, who Snooki, 21, dumped by voicemail in April after four months of dating, will travel the country searching for love in this Pratt-produced reality show (Spencer’s wife, Heidi Montag, serves as executive producer), so although he’s searching for the perfect “guidette”, he’s open to dating, well….pretty much anyone!
“I want a real Italian guidette who can speak the language, who can cook, who has a nice body, fit — she has to work out,” he told us. “But she’s got to be real.”
And if Emilio can’t have his real girl, he’s totally open to dating a celebrity, like, say, Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus.
“My ideal woman is Taylor Swift,” he confides reverentially. “I’m in love with her. Oh my god, if I run into Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus, then I might actually fall in love with them!” He adds, “You might never think a guido like me would like country music, but I love it.”
The show, which began filming on April 28 in Emilio’s local bar, and will continue this weekend in Long Island nightclub Glow.
All we can say is, watch out, Hollywood…and Nashville.
