The Situation Makes More Money Than He Should

8/23/2010 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In news that is sure to make you re-evaluate all your life choices -- The Situation is estimated to make more than $5 million in 2010, this according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The Sitch takes in roughly $60,000 an episode -- after bonus incentives, a source tells HR. Dude is also expected to rake in $1 million this year in appearance fees.

And there's more -- Situation is also getting paid for "developing" several products -- including an ab-centric workout video and a line of chewable supplements.

The HR also claims Sitch scored a six-figure deal to promote a line of vodka -- plus he'll get partial ownership in the company. He's also released a rap song on iTunes and has signed endorsement deals with Vitamin Water, Reebok and a clothing company.

And get this -- The Situation got a six-figure advance on his autobiography. The book on tape will probably be fascinating.

I have served my country in Iraq and Afghanistan these past nine years. I have devoted most of my life to helping others. I made less than twenty thousand dollars last year and this year I will make less. I am having a hard time feeding my family and get treated poorly as a vet from some of the people where I live that were against the war. I am completely ashamed to be an American if this is what is considered a high wage earner.

Don't worry America. He'll blow it, lose it, try to hide and then end in debt to the IRS.

Wow, the Situation is in a very good situation. If he was my son, I'd be real proud of him. If my daughter brought a guy like him home, I'd tell her how lucky she is to be with the Situation. If I caught my wife cheating on me with the Situation, I'd quietly leave the room and put the do not disturb sign on the door handle. I hope some day, I am in such a great situation, as is the great Situation. No hate. Feel me.

To James
You are completely correct. Its just a symptom of the complete "dumbing down" of our society in general. I wish I had an answer for you, but I do wish you nothing but the best. And I don't support the war either, but I fully support the men and women, who have and continue to serve.For I know their motivations are sincere, and in that belief are willing to put it all on the line. I'm just glad that your home, and
"keep the faith" Things always find a way of "working out", as they should.
Even for the "Situation", so he better get a good accountant

I can see IRS sitting back watching him rake all this money in and waiting for him NOT to pay his taxes... Just wait and watch, he'll be sued by IRS in at least a year or so for not paying taxes....

Whatever, he was just a regular schmuck like the rest of us and honestly though he may have his annoying behaviors the guy hasn't done anything bad to anyone... I'd rather hear of someone like him getting this kind of break instead of some of those lying cheating corporate bast*rds. Good for him, hope he takes advantage of this windfall and invests and saves for his future.
