"From food to fashion and fast cars, Italy gives America some of our finest imports, and Domenico is the very latest," said Tony Disanto, EVP of Series Development & Programming, MTV. "Tila Tequila may have given her heart to someone else, but this Italian bachelor isn't ready to give up on love, American style. He's still looking for the perfect match and we are going to help him find her! We knew we found our next star when Domenico strutted out in his tiny green and red spandex swimsuit. As we all know ... nothing says 'hot bachelor' like an Italian Flag Speedo."
