The Situation used to be a stripper and a mortgage broker


Along with honorees like Scarlett Johansson (Babe of the Year), James Franco (Leading Man of the Year) and Jeff Bridges (Man of the Year), GQ Magazine decided to name The Situation as their “Sensation of the Year” – a dubious honor. It’s like saying that the kid is worse than a one-hit wonder. Eh. Maybe that’s just my opinion – I don’t really love or hate these Jersey Shore people, I just wish I didn’t have to deal with them, at all. Anyway, if you would like to read the entire SEVEN PAGE interview with The Situation (or “The Sitch” as I call him), go here. Here are some of the highlights:

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has gone from a fist-pumping Jersey Shore dweller to GQ’s “Sensation of the Year.” The Situation made roughly $5 million this year from various endorsements, is a regular fixture on the red carpet, and has since been a contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. And it won’t stop there. This guy dreams big: “I always had dreams my whole life, of being somebody special. Someone out in the world that everybody knew of and everybody liked. Somebody unique. Even when I was down on my luck, in my head I still had those dreams.”

They’ve certainly paid off; he’s even taking meetings in Hollywood. While running all over L.A., GQ’s Alex Pappademas and the Situation discuss his competitive nature, trying to ditch the Jersey Shore camera crews for a hookup, and his stint as a shirtless waiter in a strip club.

(“He says he wasn’t an actual stripper, then admits he did it once, wearing ‘like, a red-white-and-blue thong and maybe, like, an Uncle Sam hat.’ He quit the gig after a few months: ‘I didn’t mind the attention from pretty girls. But then if I got attention from unattractive girls, it just felt kind of cheap.’ ”)

Eh. I just skimmed a few pages of the GQ piece and the gist of the article is that The Sitch really wants to brand himself on many different levels – The Sitch soap and The Sitch TV specials and The Sitch mortgage company, I guess. Did you know he used to be a mortgage broker? I didn’t. But then again, I don’t really care, either.

  2. chasingadalia says:

    Someone trusted him with their mortgage? Is he the real reason the economy is a mess?

  3. Amanda says:

    I give him credit- he is in good shape.

  4. anti says:

    if he was just doing this all undercover as a marketing ploy, i’d be impressed.

    i don’t think he is though.

  5. SoulLovah says:

    Am I the only one totally unimpressed by this guys abs? They are barely there man. Or like belly-dancer abs….he looks like he’s real flexible in the stomach. Which is…cute, but not my thing.

  6. ziggy says:

    damn! he’s ugly!

  7. original kate says:

    he was a stripper? damn, i’d pay him to keep his clothes ON.

  8. bellaluna says:

    No wonder the housing market crashed.

  9. jessica says:

    He reminds me of pauly shore.. ugh.. yucky!!

  10. Runs with Scissors says:

    He looks like a cross between Ben Kingsley (who is hot imo) and Jay Manuel (from ANTM, who is also hot imo), but the result is an unfortunate Situation indeed.

  11. Michael says:

    i don’t like him or that fat blob of a tanning spray snoki or whatever the fug her name is. they’re all ugly & ridiculous.

  12. hairball says:

    “Someone trusted him with their mortgage?”

    I know!

    UGH. He is REPULSIVE. I try not to vomit looking at him or any one of those orange losers.

  13. kwoww says:

    um, yeah, he talked about this on howard stern like 2 weeks ago.

  14. MSat says:

    If ever there were a candidate for melanoma…..


  15. heathen says:

    The mark that the end of the world is near is that this crude, obnoxious, untalanted meathead is going to make $5 million this year. Can he just go away already?

  16. KateNonymous says:

    I guarantee you that somewhere there is a market for Stripping Mortgage Broker. Just, please, not anywhere near me.

  17. Kiska says:

    He smokes, tans and drinks like a fish yet he is supposedly the picture of health and fitness. BULLSH-T!

  18. Shelley says:

    OMG y’all – he’s young and cute and funny. And enjoying the heck out of himself and this ride he’s on. He’s not hurting anyone. Anyone who takes the Jersey Shore gang seriously is off-base; it’s silly and isn’t meant to be anything else. If you don’t enjoy it, don’t watch it.

  19. texasmom says:

    Justsayin’ — nailed it in one. NOOOOO talking from this one.

    So which is sleazier, being a stripper or a mortgage broker??

  20. Stronzilla says:

    ‘I didn’t mind the attention from pretty girls. But then if I got attention from unattractive girls, it just felt kind of cheap.’

    Oh, I get it. You want to be someone out in the world that everybody knows of and everybody likes, but only if they’re attractive. Double-standard anyone? He can strut around in his red-white-and-blue thong all he wants but sooner or later he’ll end up like all his brokered mortgages-bankrupt and in foreclosure.

  21. Liana says:

    ‘I didn’t mind the attention from pretty girls. But then if I got attention from unattractive girls, it just felt kind of cheap.’

    And I find HIM monumentally unattractive.

  22. Molly says:

    Please tell me when this guys 15 minutes of fame is over please…??…

  23. Yadira says:

    Please no one ever remember me making this comment but he is hot from the neck down. Now the face is a different story..wonder if thats why he is called STITCH?

  24. mtn girl says:

    Haha, the sitch should get together with Bristol – that would really give mama grizzly something to worry about. The sitch and lil’ britches could go on a world tour holding sex-ed revivals in big tents!
