A couple of years ago, no one had a clue who Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was. Now, thanks to MTV‘s wildly successful reality TV show, Jersey Shore, The Situation is a huge star. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Situation could earn upwards of $5 million this year alone. That’s quite a good paycheck for a guy whose life consists of GTL: gym, tanning, laundry.

According to the mag, thanks to recent salary negotiations, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino makes somewhere in the ballpark of $60,000 per episode of Jersey Shore. He also rakes in between $15,000 and $50,000 simply for making an appearance at events. He recently secured endorsement deals with Reebok, Vitaminwater, and a vodka company, in addition to his clothing line with Dilligaf and supplement line with GNC. The Situation is capitalizing on his newfound fame with a fitness video, GTL app, a rap song, film offers, and a soon-to-be-released autobiography.

“We are really excited about all the opportunities coming Mike’s way,” says his manager, Mike Petolino of Gotham Entertainment. “He has been able to secure many endorsement deals, business opportunities and additional television offers based on the success of the show. Our goal has always been to try to build a brand if the situation presented itself.”
