Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is already making $10,000 an episode to act like a total moron on MTV’s hit TV show Jersey Shore and now we’ve learned that his contract for further seasons could reach much higher.
According to TMZ, the network has offered “The Situation” a one-time bonus ranging from $60,000 to $180,000 based on ratings for Season 2 in Miami. They have also proposed paying Sorrentino somewhere between $27,500 – $45,000 per episode for Season 4.
Under MTV’s new plans, season two would be broken up into seasons 2 and 3 (in which Sorrentino is already making $10k per episode), which means the next episodes to be shot for season 4 would pay Mike the larger sum.
According to sources, MTV wanted an answer by this past Thursday, but have given him more time to mull it over, which shows their dedication to keeping “The Situation” on their network.
I’ll give him $100 to just go away.
