Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, the 29 year-old star of MTV’s "Jersey Shore", is on track to earn more than $5 million by year-end, the Hollywood Reporter reports, citing a source familiar with the ab-flashing reality star’s finances.
"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," says Mike Petolino, Sorrentino’s manager.
The star will be earning nearly $60,000 per episode after bonus incentives for the third season of "Jersey Shore," which should net him about $1 million this year, the story says.
He’s also making money off of products such as an ab-focused workout video and a vodka endorsement, the article says.
