MTV Sets 'Amore' For March
MTV will premiere A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila spinoff That’s Amore March 2. The spinoff features Italian native and Tequila contestant Domenico Nesci, as he tries to find “[H]is very own American sweetheart to bring home to his ‘mamma.’”
MTV will preview the series with a one-hour special Febrary 24, Domenico’s Passport to Love, where Nesco (below) will look back at his favorite moments on A Shot at Love, and convince any ladies watching why he is quite the catch.

MTV plans to promote the series all day Valentines Day, and shot a special holiday interstitial to promote the program (which can be viewed here).
That’s Amore will follow the typical dating show format employed by the various MTV Networks on A Shot at Love, Flavor of Love, Rock of Love and I Love New York. A format the network calls a “romantic comedy elimination series.”
15 ladies, from snowboarders to socialites, will try to win over Nesco in a series of competitions and dates.
While the network was coy about what the events would be, it was confirmed that one will be a spaghetti wrestling match. How classy. And of course there’s nothing stereotypical about that.
