He might not be Snookin’ For Love any time soon now that he and Jersey Shore‘s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi have split, but Emilio Masella is just fine with that — he’s got his own dating show on the horizon… Fist Pumping for Love! “It’s about me searching the country for love, in search of a real Italian woman,” he tells OK!.
So we wanted to know, of course, what is a “real” Italian woman, by Emilio’s definition?
“It is someone that can cook, someone that can actually speak [Italian], and have a nice big family, well, someone who is family-oriented,” he explains to OK!.
It’s not just about finding the right woman to fist pump with, Emilio adds.
The show “is going to be me traveling, partying everywhere, and just being myself in search of love. It’s basically whatever I want.”
Emilio isn’t restricting himself to the lower 48 states either, he’s truly heading out on the road to find this perfect mate — including Italy, where he’s never been!
“It will be everywhere,” he reveals. Obviously in Connecticut, probably Jersey, maybe Long Island, Alaska, Italy and Canada.”
But for fans who are still hoping for a reunion with Snooki in Emilio’s future, no such luck.
“No, not at all,” he says when asked if there’s a chance they’ll reunite on the upcoming chance of Jersey Shore.
Girls, start lining up!
