'Jersey Shore's' Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino creates a 'Sensation' in 2010
After all, this is the man who snagged a pair of Star Candy panties from the official American Music Awards gift lounge reading "You're So Lucky" in rhinestones across the back because, "Any girl would be so lucky [to be with me]." Wonder who on his gift list is going to find those stuffed in their Christmas stocking.
Sorrentino has become such a media savvy phenom (was there a red carpet where he didn't pull up his shirt so we could all check out his "Situation" for ourselves in the past 12 months?), GQ magazine really had no choice but to name him their "Sensation of the Year" for 2010. The fact that he's managed to turning GTL -- Gym, Tan, Laundry -- into $5 million worth of endorsements and a turn on the "Dancing With the Stars" floor is not to be dismissed.
His previous dance experience was limited to grinding in the clubs and working as a shirtless waiter in a strip joint although he didn't strip himself, except for that one time while wearing "like, a red-white-and-blue thong and maybe, like, an Uncle Sam hat." But his aspirations were always to do something more, bigger, with his life.
"I didn't mind the attention from pretty girls. But then if I got attention from unattractive girls, it just felt kind of cheap."
