‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation’ Season 3 Sneak Peek: Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s Roommates Show Up At His Sentencing

“Make way for Big Daddy Sitch!”

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino had plenty of support on the morning in October 2018 that he was sentenced for his tax evasion crimes, and now MTV is giving us an inside look at what was happening with Mike– and the rest of the Jersey Shore crew— on that day. 

In a new sneak peek of the premiere episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 3, posted by People magazine, we see Mike arrive at his sentencing hearing as the rest of his roommates show their support— and talk about how nervous they are for their friend. 

“I’m terrified,” Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi says as they wait for Mike to arrive. “Like, I’m not in a good mood right now.” 

“Hope for the best, prepare for the worst,” Jenni “Jwoww” Farley tells the group.

To lighten the mood, Pauly D and Vinny Guadagnino make some jokes at their friends’ expenses. 

“Angelina, your ride’s here!” Pauly says as a garbage truck drives by.

“Not right now!” she says. “I can’t laugh at a moment like this!” 

The roommates all realize that they showed up to the hearing wearing black.

“It looks like we’re going to a funeral,” Pauly says, to which Nicole replies, “It feels like it, honestly.”

While all the ‘Shore’ stars donned their darkest duds for Mike’s hearing, Vinny points out that none of them were dressed appropriately for a day in court.

“Pauly looks good, but he’s wearing Yeezys,” Vinny says. (Pauly explains he had no dress shoes.) “Jenni looks like she’s a former prosecutor mixed with a p0rn star. And Ronnie looks like he’s going to court…as a criminal.” 

Nicole tells the cameras that she’s hoping Mike’s judge isn’t too harsh on him.

“I’m tearing up but that joke about Angelina and the garbage truck WAS funny…”

“If Mike gets a Judge Judy-type judge right now, he’s f**ked,” she says. “He doesn’t fit in in prison. Ronnie does, but not Mike!” 

Mike then pulls up in a car, accompanied by his now-wife Lauren

“My heart is racing right now, but at the end of the day, I need to hold my head high with grace and class, for myself and my family,” Mike says in a voiceover. 

“Mike is the most positive person I’ve ever met,” Vinny explains. “But even for him this is a monumental moment, a tough moment. He will truly be tested today.” 

‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation’ Season 3 premieres Thursday, July 11 on MTV.

  1. I didn’t like old Situation but he seems to have genuinely turned things around. He made one mistake but he deserves a sec chance. And I ABSOLUTELY loved the outpouring of support from his Jersey Shore family!!!!


  2. Yeah, I’m touched as well by the genuine love here. Hoping Mike gets out soon, back to his lovely wife.


  3. Look, I like Mike and feel for him… but it’s not like he couldn’t have avoided these charges… BY PAYING HIS TAXES. Amazingly the rest of the cast isn’t falling into the same kind of trouble. This guy has made more money being a douche on reality TV than I’ll probably ever see in my lifetime, the LEAST he could have done was hired a competent CPA and paid his taxes. And don’t let them fool you, you get plenty of warnings before they actually bother to send you to jail – they’d rather have thier money. Hopefully he learns from this whole experience.


  4. I honestly believe that most of them would have been there for Mike even if they weren’t filming and hadn’t rebooted the show. I really don’t know how it happened, and they’ll never be able to recreate it, but mtv stumbled on a gold mine of real connections when they cast this show so many years ago.

    I’m a little ashamed of myself for how much I like these ridiculous people. Most of them anyway…


    1. I really can’t stand Vinny, but you’re right. It’s the real connections that made it a good show at the heart.
