'Jersey Shore' riches: Is The Situation a $5 million man?

Is Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino a $5 million man?

Possibly.

The 29-year-old "Jersey Shore" star could earn more than $5 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter, who cites "a source familiar with his finances."

How will he amass the fortune? The source confirmed that Sorrentino is earning close to $60,000 an episode for Season 3 of "Jersey Shore," currently filming. And his appearance fees range from $15,000-$50,000 per event.

He's also developing several products, including — shockingly — a fitness video, "The Situation Workout," and a "chewable supplement line." Sorrentino is even working on an autobiography, "Here's the Situation," which reportedly earned him a six-figure advance. Yes, six figures.


He's endorsing a new vodka line (yet another six-figure deal) and has endorsements with Vitamin Water and Reebok. The oft-shirtless Sorrentino also, for some reason, has a clothing line in the works.

The Hollywood Reporter points out that this year, Sorrentino is out-earning fellow TV stars Anna Paquin ($900,000 for Season 3 of "True Blood") and Matthew Morrison ($540,000 for "Glee"). Even Edie Falco can't match The Situation — she gets $2.1 million for "Nurse Jackie."

We sort-of don't want to live in a world where The Situation out-earns Edie Falco. JORDAN BARTEL, B
