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.’ “)
