“Jersey Shore” fans already knew Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino to be a woman chaser as they watched him flirt, dance, and bring countless women home to the hot tub in Season One. With Pauly D playing wingman, The Situation tried to step up his game in Season Two of the “Jersey Shore” in the new Miami setting. Many of the things he did in this season were over the top, even for him, and it showed viewers to a greater extent the kind of person he is, and most of it reflected poorly on his image.
The boys of the “Jersey Shore” house came up with two new mottos this season which were DTF and GTF. I can’t say what those letters stand for in this article, but DTF means that a girl is likely willing to sleep with one of them and GTF means that it would be good to sleep with that woman. Lingo like this shows a lot about their attitude towards women. From labeling them grenades and bombs, to using these code words, and treating women like they are trash to be let out the next day, the boys certainly took it up a notch this season.
The Situation made himself look even more horrible as he continually tried to steal any girl that showed interest in Vinny. He even tried to snatch away Ramona, a girl Vinny had actually had real feelings for, only to be rejected by her.
Later on in the episode, The Situation sat sulking on the couch and watched as Vinny and Ramona danced. He had to spoil the night for Snooki, who had her friend from home with her, by demanding that they all leave the club with him. The Situation claimed that he was the boss of the house and that everyone should leave at the same time. Snooki was upset because she was enjoying herself and didn’t want to go home yet. Another time at the club after that, Mike decided that it was time to go home again. This time he was even more aggressive with Snooki and gave her a slap on the face.
The Situation degraded women in other ways throughout the season, too. He would sleep with them and then tell them that they had to leave. When one girl rejected him, he told her that she had to go out to the living room and sit by herself while she waited for her friend who was hooking up with Pauly. Mike blocked Pauly from sleeping with the friend because she ended up leaving due to the way Mike treated the girl.
The Situation has become widely popular, but not always for the right reasons. The “Jersey Shore” allowed Mike to capture some fame, which led to other deals for him, but he needs to watch out for his image and stop behaving so immaturely.
