Can you find love on a reality show? It seems like it would be an impossible task, but a few lucky couples met amid their reality fame and managed to make it work off-screen, too. Here are eight couples making us wonder if it might be a good idea to try and become the next big reality drama queen!
8. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jionni LaValle (Jersey Shore)
Nobody’s relationship has shocked us more than Snooki’s. After being launched to fame on MTV’s party-centric series Jersey Shore, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has made a huge transformation to a married mother of two, at the young age of just 28. It’s clear that she trusts Jionni, whom she met while she was filming the reality show: Nicole decided to get married without a prenuptial agreement to protect her assets. But even though Snooki is in love, she admitted on her podcast that she had pre-wedding jitters. “I was nervous, I had to have a little vodka. I was like, “Where’s my vodka? I need my nerves to calm down,'” she said. Luckily, everything worked out: “It was honestly the best day of my life. I kind of want to renew my vows next year just so I can have a wedding again and relive that experience because it was so amazing.” Their relationship’s stability came under fire when it was reported that Jionni had an internet account at cheating site Ashley Madison, but Snooki stood by her man, saying, “I’m lucky if he knows how to even use a computer, yet go on Ashley Madison to cheat on me.”Photo by Broadimage / Rex Features
