Who has two thumbs, four abs, and is worth $5 million per year? That guy down there! Seriously. The Situation apparently makes about $5 million bucks off Jersey Shore, public appearances and endorsements per year, and all because he has abdominal muscles that look like a happy puppy. Take this information and kill yourself with it.
Mike Sorrentino, 29, reportedly earns $60,000 per episode of Jersey Shore and commands an appearance fee of $15,000 to $50,000. These paychecks put him at about $1 million before his many endorsements and branded products.
“We are really excited about all the opportunities coming Mike’s way,” his manager, Mike Petolino of Gotham Entertainment, told THR. “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.” SOURCE
Hey, I like Jersey Shore as much as the next person (Read: It makes me want to set myself and everyone I love on fire), but are you fucking kidding me? He makes that much for having four abs? You can grate cheese and wash your laundry simultaneously on Erik Rhodes‘ abs, and even he doesn’t make that much. Well, maybe he would if he painted himself orange and acted like the biggest douche to ever douche a douche.
