Many of you may either hate or love the Jersey Shore kids. If you did like any of them then you would def hate Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. I cant knock the guy for being cocky and arrogant because he is actually getting paid from that. Sorrentino is set to make about $5 million this year thanks to his $60,000 per episode salary from the show and several lucrative deals.

“We are really excited about all the opportunities coming Mike’s way,” said Sorrentino’s manager, Mike Petolino of Gotham Entertainment. “He has been able to secure many endorsement deals, business opportunities and additional television offers based on the success of the show. Our goal has always been to try to build a brand if the situation presented itself.”

Amid hefty and much-publicized salary negotiations for Season 3, the source confirmed that Sorrentino is earning close to $60,000 an episode after bonus incentives, based on ratings, and event-appearance fees from $15,000-$50,000 (which will bring him $1 million this year alone).

The New York native also has developed several products based on his much-touted six-pack: an abs-focused fitness video, “The Situation Workout,” and a chewable supplement line distributed in association with GNC.

Literary ambitions? Check. Sorrentino has partnered with Gotham Books to pen his autobiography, “Here’s the Situation,” which the source said earned him a six-figure advance. Top-shelf liquor connection? Check. He is signing to endorse a new vodka line that boasts another six-figure payday plus partial ownership. Of course he has a “GTL” app and a rap song on iTunes. It doesn’t stop: He has further endorsements with Vitamin Water and Reebok…he`s making more money than the majority of rappers out there.
