We bet Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's Jersey Shore castmates are still proud of their fellow guido despite his poor performance on Monday night's premiere of Dancing With the Stars. Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and Vinny Guadagnino wished their pal well before his performance in a special video message, and didn't seem to have the utmost confidence in his moves.
"I wish Mike the best of luck with Dancing With the Stars," Sammi told MTV News shortly before the show went live. "He can't really dance, but I know he can fist-pump, and I'm sure that Karina is gonna whip some sense into him. So hopefully he does well. I wish him the best of luck. I'm there to support him. I hope he does well."
Sammi predicted right as The Situation and Karina found themselves in a three-way-tie for the lowest score of 15.
Vinny is pulling for his GTL buddy to make everyone proud.
"Situation doesn't really have dance skills, but that show really isn't about having dance skills," he told MTV. "It's pretty serious, what they do on it. It's like real ballroom dancing. If Mike can follow the directions of his partner and he can go to practice every day and get it down — it's really just how much learning capacity you have. You can be not a good dancer at all, but you can also learn how to do it."
"Hopefully he does learn the steps and goes through with it," he added. "We'll support him."
