Rep: 'Situation' Strikes Secret 'Jersey Shore' Deal

7/20/2010 2:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It could be the first time "The Situation" has ever done anything quietly -- his manager says Sitch steathily struck a new deal late Monday night and thinks it will end the "Jersey Shore" strike.


According to the manager, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino "believes he and MTV have reach [sic] a great new arrangement." No mention of dollar amounts, but interestingly, the manager says the deal was sealed (though he never says it's been signed) with MTV, and not JS producers 495 Productions.

TMZ broke the story ... MTV offered The Sitch anywhere between $27,500 to $45,000 per episode over a period of time -- he was making $10k for season 2, so not bad.

But move over Moses -- Sitch's manager says, "Mike decided in order to get season 3 done he was going to have to lead the pack and wants to encourage the rest of his cast to follow his lead."

MTV had no comment about a new contract for "The Situation."  We're betting his castmates will have plenty to say about it.

I'm sick of all you Italian-Americans protesting on websites making comments to have ths show removed. Get over it and stop your whinging. Jersey Shore is a phenomenon and the guido and guidette lifestyle is here to stay so if you don't like it then GO AWAY !!! Jersey Shore rocks, GTL baby !!

I say shut down production and recast entirely. Maybe hire less greety and more talented actors this time. TPTB don't cave to their desires. Pathetic lil ingrates for wanting more $$$. Be happy with what you got. So many people make so much less and would KILL for that income anyday.

I think "The Situation" has a serious situation with the nails. The dude needs some hand groomin' and I mean fast. They are called nail clippers...please use them. Ewww...who knows what ends up under those nails after his daily constitutional. That's just nasty.

He does look like a young Pauly Shore. I could never put my finger on it.

His forehead looks leathery because he's wearing make up. He probably wears make up on his abs

These posters are all complaining about the cast being talentless.. We're talking about an effn reality show! You're not supposed to be professional actors in a reality show. People don't need to take acting classes for everyday life which is pretty much what this show is about.

Hey lets complain about how they can't even get an Oscar nomination! har har har!

LOVE this show!!! I'm 50 and it so reminds me of the disco days in the late 70's and early 80's. MTV is awesome...forget videos, reality TV rules!! Love Teen Moms show also. The Real World has gone by the wayside.
