He may still tan, but if you tuned into TVGN's premiere of The Sorrentinos looking for The Situation to be up to his old tricks -- you're better off watching re-runs of Jersey Shore. Mike Sorrentino (as he would like to be known from here on out) is sharing a peek into his new sober life with his two brothers, his mom, and his girlfriend. They run a tanning salon together. Because you might be able to remove the G and the L and the boy from the shore, but the T -- that's here to stay. Mike meant it when he said he's changed, and making his brother Marc Sorrentino cry was proof he means it.
I was surprised by this new toned-down version of Mike. He's still cut (like, scary cut. I know I shouldn't body snark, but damn, boy, eat some Nutella) and he's still funny and strange, but he's sober and focused and really wants to reconnect with his family. He made good strides with his bossy brother Marc.
