A Double Shot at Love (stylized as A Double Shot at Love with the ikki twins in the show's logo) is an American reality television dating game show that first aired weekly on MTV from December 9, 2008 to February 3, 2009. It is a spin-off of A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila. The show, like its predecessor, is a bisexual-themed dating competition where 12 hetero males and 12 lesbian females live in a house with Rikki (Erica Mongeon) and Vikki (Victoria Mongeon) and compete for their attention and affection.
One of the contestants, Kandice (Kandi) Hutchinson, died in a car crash shortly after the end of production. Out of respect to her family, the producers edited Hutchinson's scenes to remove some of her more outrageous behavior. The second episode of the series was dedicated to her memory.
