Tax Time Reveals ‘Jersey Shore' Star Filed For Unemployment In '09

The Situation was apparently strapped for cash

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino may now be receiving a reported $10,000 an episode to film Season 2 of MTV's "Jersey Shore," but last year, times were tougher for the self-professed guido.

According to TMZ, The Sitch filed for unemployment on October 25, 2009 in New Jersey, claiming that his last job as a waiter – in Florida — was in July 2009. It was unclear if he ever received an unemployment check.

In fairness to the reality hunk, Sorrentino filed for unemployment more than a month before "Jersey Shore" was launched on an unsuspecting world, turning The Situation, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and the rest of their boisterous gang into nationally recognized stars.

As previously reported on, the "Jersey Shore" gang is currently filming Season 2 of their show in Miami.

The cast is living at Lieberman's Metropole Hotel, where walls in the 1940's establishment were knocked down to create the gang's new living locale, the Miami Herald reported.

After "Jersey Shore" wraps up filming, the Hotel will reportedly be offering the "Jersey Shore Suite" for rent for $2,000 a night.
