There’s definitely one familiar face who will be returning for season three of the hitÂ MTV reality showÂ Jersey Shore: Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. While the rest of the cast is in contract negotiations with MTV, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino inked a deal for another year. Keep reading for more details on season three and the cast’s demands…
It seems the newfound fame of theÂ Jersey Shore cast is going to their heads. Although season two of theÂ MTV reality show isn’t slated to air until next Thursday, July 29th, plans are already beginning to be made for season three. While MTV is hoping to begin production soon, the cast is holding out for more money. Everyone save one: Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
While the rest of the Jersey Shore cast demands more money for season three, Mike “The Situation” has reportedly inked a deal with MTV for his return. Rumor has it the cast demanded $30,000 per episode, quite a far cry from the $10,000 per episode they received for season two. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino decided to sign his contract though in hopes of convincing the cast to follow suit.
â€œMike decided in order to get season 3 done he was going to have to lead the pack,â€Â Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s manager, Michael Petolino, said in a statement.Â â€œMike is confident the rest of the cast will rally around him. He felt that he could break the stalemate by putting these rumors of a cast strike to rest by moving forward.â€
Although rumors are flying that the rest of the cast is refusing to shoot scenes until their demands are met, a representative for MTV said,Â â€œSeason 2 premieres July 29 and production is on schedule.â€
