There’s still something there! Double Shot at Love hopeful Marissa Lucchese dished to Life & Style exclusively about her connection with Pauly D — and how they duo is still keeping in touch post-elimination.

“I haven’t talked to Vinny [Guadagnino] because me and Vinny, he’s like very introverted, I’m very extroverted,” the Long Island native revealed. “So I get along with Pauly more, but me and Pauly definitely have kept in touch with each other. We talk to each other here and there in DMs, so we still keep in touch.”

Yeah, you heard that right: DMs! According to the brunette beauty, things have been casual as far as the messages are concerned, but who knows what could happen in the future. In fact, Marissa told us that the 38-year-old DJ still stays in contact with a lot of the eliminated babes from the show.

“He’s definitely still keeping in touch with everybody and he still talks to the girls here and there. We all left off on good terms and now we’re all friends,” she dished. “He even was saying ‘We’re all cool with each other. We all know each other. We were filming and living together for a month. It’s not like we’re strangers.'”

Marissa was eliminated on the June 6 episode of the MTV series, but she made some seriously great connections along the way — even if she didn’t find the love she was looking for. Costars Brittani Schwartz, a.k.a. B-Lashes, and Derynn Paige fostered a great friendship through the show from their shared east coast pride.

“I literally talk to [them] still like thousand times a day,” Marissa gushed about her new lifelong pals. Plus, she did also get close with the Jersey Shore hotties, so what could be better than that?

Just because you didn’t go home with the gold doesn’t mean you’re not a winner in our eyes, girl.
