Justin May and Sammi Giancola’s Relationship

Jersey Shore star Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola was engaged to Christian Biscardi. They started dating in 2017 and were engaged in 2019.

She cited their relationship as one of the reasons she didn’t sign up for the Family Vacation spin-off that also starred her on-and-off ex, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. Sammi confirmed their split in July 2021.

Rumors about Sammi having someone new in her life began swirling in November 2021. She went on to reveal the identity of her new beau, Justin May, that same month.

Although it’s not confirmed, May might have crossed paths with Sammi and the original cast of Jersey Shore long before he became Sammi’s sweetheart. The Jersey Shore gang used to hang out and film at the Bamboo Bar around the time he worked there. So, who knows if they might have had a connection that goes way back before it turned into a romance.
