You might want to take off your belt and your shoelaces before you read this — Jersey Shore asswipe Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is set to make more then $5 million dollars this year… and there are reports that that amount could even double in 2011. The Daily Mail says:
The star is also earning nearly $60,000 per episode after bonus incentives, while earning up to $50,000 for celebrity appearance fees.
There is talk of an autobiography called ‘Here’s the Situation’ which has earned Sorrentino a six-figure book advance.
Alongside the usual celebrity supply of endorsements (Vitamin Water, Reebok), there is a ‘GTL’ app and a rap song on iTunes.
As if all that weren’t enough, the star might appear on the big screen as he is in talk with various Hollywood production companies.
Not to mention The Situation Brand vodka coming to a liquor store near you. Hope you like the taste of nipple sweat and L.A. Looks. According to TMZ:
The “Jersey Shore” money machine scored a $400,000 signing bonus to be the spokesman for a vodka company called Devotion.
But this ain’t no ordinary booze — Devotion contains a clear protein called Casein, which can support an increase in lean body mass and a decrease in body fat if the user is also on some sort of weight training program.
We’re told The Sitch’s brother, Marc Sorrentino, brokered the deal through the company they run together, MPS Entertainment.
It has muscle-building protein in it. Of course it does. But I think it’s biggest selling point will be that you can also use it as aftershave/genital disinfectant/tire shine. For the man who likes to look buff, smell great, keep his rims clean and chemically peel the stank of guido whore off his wiener. Available in half-pint, 750 ml and 1.75L bottles. Vaporizer attachment sold separately.
UPDATE: And now he’s joining the cast of next season’s “Dancing with the Stars.” Because there’s no such thing as overexposure.
