“Floribama Shore” star Gus Smyrnios has a new girlfriend named Samantha Carucci, who he calls Sammi.
Ahead of season 4B, also being called season 5 by fans, of “Floribama Shore,” Smyrnios released photos of his girlfriend on his Instagram account, along with a lengthy caption. In the caption, Smyrnios wrote, “This is my girlfriend Sami. We’ve been together going on 9 months now. Had just started going steady when I filmed the new Szn of @floribamashore coming out tomorrow. I’ve been super hesitant to put my love life out there for the world because my last 2 relationships were put on broadcast and my heart broke for people to watch them fall apart and watch me crumble.”
Smyrnios continued, writing, “Break ups are hard, even harder when a show is made out of it and u spiral like usually everyone does after break ups. Also in my position, not knowing if girls love you for you or because you’re on a show, or using u for their benefit had scarred me. I’ve let go of all that anger from the past and started looking for a pure kind soul to spend my days with. I found it. Also I’ve wanted to keep the happiness we’ve created between us, without strangers trying to ruin it.”
The “Floribama Shore” star concluded his caption with, “I thank you Sami for being so sweet and understanding. You’re a true blessing to me, I love you and thanks for accepting my craziness.”
On previous seasons of “Floribama Shore,” Smyrnios featured ex-girlfriends Lisa Burns and Athena Megaloudis. He also was romantically involved with co-star Nilsa Prowant. Prowant and her fiance Gus Gazda welcomed their first baby together in May 2021.
