It is there where fans will be able to watch her reunite with her ex from the show, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, for the first time in a decade. The pair dated off-and-on throughout filming, before calling it quits in 2014. 

"I, of course, was not fond of filming with an ex-boyfriend," Sammi told E! News in February of coming back for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. "You're gonna see me basically navigate that, and you're gonna see it all play out. But of course, I knew eventually that this would happen." 

But thankfully, she had someone by her side through it all. 

"What's really cool about Justin is he's very supportive and kind of like a breath of fresh air," she explained. "So with me coming back, he was like, 'Listen, I'm here for you.' And it kind of was nice to have that different type of aspect in my life. He's very uplifting, supportive, and loving and caring, and I really just adore that about him."

And even then, Sammi had a ring on her mind, adding, "I hope there's wedding bells in the near future. I love him. He's the one for me, and I know that."
