Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino took some time to chat with Jay Leno Tuesday night about his VMA experience, Dancing With the Stars and Lady Gaga‘s meat dress. Everyone’s favorite guido wasn’t as amusing on The Tonight Show as he is on the MTV hit reality show Jersey Shore. Maybe he was just nervous?
“It was just awesome to be there,” The Situation told Jay of the VMAs. “I saw Justin Bieber, Drake, Lady Gaga was out there. It was pretty crazy.”
While the self-proclaimed guido was excited to meet Lady Gaga he was confused by her meat dress.
“I seen her from afar and I didn’t even know — was it actually meat?” he asked. “I heard it was real, and I was like, ‘No way.’ How long do you think it takes to put together something like that?”
As for Dancing With the Stars, The Situation remains confident about his chances, but he refrained from being too boastful.
“I love a challenge,” he said. “I love the people, I love the camera. But I’ll be honest with you: It’s pretty hard.”
So what does he think of the competition?
“I’ve seen some of the dancers practicing, and if I have to say somebody, I have to say the Hoff,” he told Leno of contestant David Hasselhoff. “He’s really breaking it down.”
