Dancing with the Stars Season 11: Reality star Mike Sorrentino


For some, calling Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino a star might be stretching the meaning of the word. The Staten Island-born Sorrentino grew up in Manalapan, New Jersey, graduating from Manalapan High School and graduating from college in 2004.

FAMOUS FOR: His mantra back in Jersey is “Gym, tan, laundry.” After graduation, he tried his hand at personal training, fitness modeling and soon after was scouted for an upcoming reality show which would eventually become “The Jersey Shore”, now in its 2nd season on MTV.

The show is one of the highest rated shows in MTV history and propelled “The Situation” into pop culture phenomenon. Sorrentino was nominated this year at the Teen Choice Awards for “Choice TV: Male Reality Star.” Upcoming projects for Mike include a book—”Here’s the Situation”—which be out in stores on November 2nd, a vitamin line with nationwide store GNC that will launch in the fall, and a fitness DVD which will be out in December.
