Do you remember last season’s ‘Jersey Shore: Reunion?’ The cast was asked who the best dancer was and they unanimously voted Ronnie.

Then they asked who the worst was and, again, it was unanimous. ‘The Situation’ won that round.

Well, OK magazine reported Monday that the man with the golden abs will compete on ‘Dancing With the Stars.’

We’ve been hard at work confirming this development, and even though ABC does not discuss these matters until host Tom Bergeron officially announces the show’s new cast before each season, sources close to the dance competition confirm that Mike Sorrentino will be dancing his heart away with all those other, ahem, stars.

The costumes alone will make us watch! We can also picture ‘The Situation’ showing his abs to the judges for extra points when his wardrobe covers his biggest asset. Bruno, take a Valium. Or two.


Another thing we wondered: Does ‘The Situation’ know what he’s getting himself into? How is he gonna fit GTL (that’s the stay-cool process of gym, tan, laundry) into all those hours of practice?

What do you think? Does this make you wish it was already Sept. 20 so you can watch him incorporate fist-pumping into a samba or a waltz?

Or are you all Situation’ed out?
