You might not think the tango, mamba or waltz would require rock-hard abs, but Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is setting out to show that his GTL skills can translate to the dance floor! OK! has exclusively learned that the Jersey Shore cast member who named his own muscles has signed on to the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars.
So will his toned bod and glowing orange tan bring him success in the ballroom? While only time will tell, we think he’ll have a bit of that Patrick Swayze as Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing vibe.
OK! recently spoke to DWTS‘ reigning pro champ, Derek Hough, about the upcoming season. And while he had no idea when we spoke with him that The Situation would be on the show, when we asked about the possibility, he said the presence of the Jersey Shore guido would get fans glued to their screens.
“It’s people like that who come on the show who people will tune in and watch because either it will be a travesty or it will be interesting to see somebody turn something completely around so I’m up for anybody,” he told OK! at the Creative Emmys Saturday in L.A. “For me it’s classic entertainment, it’s fun. Whatever gets people talking and tuning in is interesting to watch.”
Already signed on to the show is his fellow MTV reality star, Audrina Patridge of The Hills, recording artist Brandy and NFL alum Kurt Warner, who led the Arizona Cardinals to a Super Bowl win in 1998.
We can’t wait to see how this all shakes out!
