The Situation -- Armed and Loaded

7/18/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MTV is in secret negotiations with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino ... putting a super-confidential contract on the table that could make The Sitch a fairly rich man.  It's totally confidential, except for the fact that we have a copy.

According to the proposed deal, MTV is offering Mikey a one-time bonus for the impending Season 2 in Miami, ranging from $60,000 to $180,000, depending on ratings.

So why, you ask, would MTV offer Mike more money if he already has a contract for Season 2?  Turns out MTV plans to split up Season 2 -- using the second half (Seaside Heights) for Season 3 -- and they want Mike to sign on for a possible Season 4.

Under the new proposal, The Sitch would pull in between $27,500 - $45,000 an episode for Season 4. Not a bad bump ... considering he's making $10k an episode for Seasons 2 and 3.

MTV wanted The Sitch to sign on the dotted line by this past Thursday, or the deal was off the table.  But we've heard they are now giving him a few more days to mull it over.

Best case scenario -- The Situation walks away from "Jersey Shore" far filthier than he was before ... rich, that is.

Some of you people need to relax. Is Jersey shore a stupid show? **** yes it is, but it's ****ing hilarious!!!! If these people want to make asses of themselves for all of the world to laugh and make fun of them then who cares. I cant wait til the next season. Anyone who is pissed that they are banking is jealous.

This is why television is a JOKE. These MTV buffoons are running after this completely average person while very talented people like Christina Perri are barely noticed or only found by accident.

Fools chasing fools seducing the stupid.

Why does the letter refer to July 15th at 6:00PM PST? Since the west coast is now observing PDT, does this mean he had until 7:00PM PDT, which would equal to 6:00PM PST, right? You'd think someone writing a ironclad contract would know what time zone they were in.

Mike "The Situation" = is this guy for real? He is the UGLIEST, big nosed, bow-legged, stupid ass.

He's a punk. 'Cause every time there is a fight, he runs away like a girl. Most of the time he starts the fight.

My advice...the next time you pull up your shirt, pull it all the way up and cover that nasty ass face of yours!

You are all a bunch of stupid daygos!
