Mike Sorrentino, an assistant manager of a fitness center in Staten Island, refers to himself as "The Situation."
A confident individual, he strikes up friendships, romances and performs well as an employee in the t-shirt shop on MTV's Jersey Shore.
Although cocky on the outside, The Situation has a sensitive side and aspires to settle down in the future.
He develops an attraction towards Sammi "Sweetheart" but a relationship never comes into fruition when she becomes interested in fellow castmate Ronnie.
Bummer. Talk about a disappointing Situation.
