Bisexual twins will star in the next A Shot of Love

MTV’s bisexual dating series A Shot of Love is returning with a Penthouse Forum set-up: bisexual identical twin sisters will replace Tila Tequila as the show’s star. The new season, officially called A Double Shot at Love, debuts Dec. 9, and will include a dozen straight men and 12 straight women competing for the affections of Rikki and Vikki. (MTV offered Tila a third season, but she said no.)

Rikki and Vikki call themselves the “Ikki twins” and insist they’re “the world’s hottest twins.” MTV says that in college, “they started hosting parties for a living and were later featured on billboards and in numerous calendars and advertisements across the country,” including for Bench Warmer Cards, Import Turner, Fast & Sexy, the Sexy Corvettes Calendar, and they’ve also participated in the Hot Import Night Tour and Steve Harvey’s Big Time Challenge.

In the extended trailer for the new season (below), they complete each other’s sentences and talk at the same time, because that’s what twins do. They also fight with each other, adding a new layer of faux drama to an already faux drama-filled series.
