The Situation

Real Name – Irrelevant

Born – July 4, 1982
Staten Island, New York, U.S.

Local meathead turned underwear model turned reality star turned grossly overexposed national joke.

Known for his trademark washboard abs which can't actually be trademarked because they're abs and anyone who works out a lot can get them.

Got punched in the face when “Jersey Shore” went to Italy … America rejoiced.

Released an autobiography that only sold 12,000 copies, which has gotta be depressing to the person who actually wrote it.

Made more than 5 million dollars in 2010. Just something to think about as you're struggling to pay back those student loans.

Graduated high school.
