Jeff Miranda, a 24-year-old Iraq war veteran who lives in Millstone, N.J., says he's getting bombarded online.

"You should see my Facebook and e-mails," Miranda told in an interview. "Every day I get people sending me angry messages. I've had death threats on more than one occasion."

Miranda told People Magazine that he met Polizzi at a Jersey club in Seaside Heights and said it was "love at first sight."

Just after a few weeks of dating, Miranda appeared shirtless on the cover of "Steppin' Out" magazine, with a boldface headline asking Polizzi, "Will You Marry Me?"

Polizzi, 22, not only turned down Miranda's offer of marriage, but also said via Twitter that she's "single," according toCBS News' Celebrity Circuit.

"Jersey Shore," in its third season on MTV, chronicles the carryings-on of a group of hard-partying, 20-something Italian-Americans at a beach house on the Seaside Heights boardwalk.
