The Situation Makes More Money Than He Should

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.

This message is for James. Thank you for serving your country with honor and for putting your life on the line for our freedoms, I truly appreciate you and every other service person.

As for addressing the disgusting sum of money this s***bag makes, no, it isn't fair. He and every other person on that show are worthless, they drink and act like damn fools and make money doing so but at the end of the day they know they are still worthless. You on the other hand are so very valuable, have guts, wisdom, are brave beyond words and loved by many.
Money isn't the be all end all in life.

Good for him. Only in America!
I've never watched his show but obviously someone does.
He's a go getter, nothing wrong with that. He's like a young Gene Simmons.

While people are losing their jobs, their homes, their cars, and everything they've worked their whole lives for, these uneducated pieces of human garbage get rich off being obnoxious, drunk, rude and stupid. It's disgusting.
