The Situation Signs Jersey Shore Contract Extension, Hopes Cast Members Will Follow Suit

by at . Comments

Mike Sorrentino is taking control of the situation. Pun ... intended!

Perhaps the best known member of the Jersey Shore cast has signed a deal for a third season. Now his goal is to get the rest of his raise-seeking crew on board.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, all eight of the principal stars were close to signing new contracts today after initially asking for $30,000 per episode.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "JWoww" Farley and the rest of their partners in crime made $5,000 an episode in Season 1 and $10,000 per for Season 2.

Considering the first season was only nine episodes, that really wasn't that much. Season 2 will feature a robust 24 episodes, giving the cast a big raise.

Yet they wanted more still, and it looks like they'll get it.

No word if The Sitch's contract has a steroids clause. As in he must use them.

MTV released the following statement: "We don't comment on any contractual conversations. Season 2 premieres July 29 and production is on schedule."

Rest assured, The Situation is already ahead of schedule. Rumor has it he was offered a one-time $60,000-$180,000 bonus to sign on for Season 3 and 4.

The network supposedly thinks The Situation, Snooki, and Pauly D are the only three non-expendable stars, but hopefully the gang will remain intact.

"Mike has been packed and ready to go for days for Jersey Shore 3 and is excited to move forward with the shooting," his manager said in a statement.

"After hearing there was a rumored strike, Mike decided in order to get Season 3 done, he was going to have to lead the pack and wants to encourage the rest of his cast to follow his lead and return for another amazing season of Jersey Shore."

"Mike is confident the rest of the cast will rally around him as they have in the past. The Situation has always been respected and well-liked by the entire cast. He felt that he could break the stalemate by putting these rumors to rest."

Ever-altruistic, and always a leader.

I think the Cast of Jersey Shore are just trying to be used. MTV knows dam well that these guidos can make them money! Only way to keep viewers, is to pay them what they want! The cast is happy - the fans are happy - & even though MTV will loose money for thier payrolls, it will double later... you wait & see! Come on Season 3!!!! ; )
