"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."

Domenico Nesci, born and raised in Milano, Italy, is looking for his very own American sweetheart to win his heart and bring home to his 'mamma.' From southern belles to big city socialites to west coast surfers, MTV is hand- selecting 15 girls who will have their own 'shot at love' and an Italian romantic adventure of a lifetime with Domenico.
