Excuses, temper tantrums and sulking has become expected behavior from Dancing With The Stars resident cry-baby Michael ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino. He reminds us of last season’s contestant Kate Gosselin, who was, to put it nicely, ‘difficult to work with.’ Is it possible that The Situation is taking her crown as the worst contestant ever on ‘Dancing With The Stars?’
The Situation, 27, has week after week failed to do better than mediocre with his dance numbers. His Oct. 11 performance of the Tango was no different with partner Karina Smirnoff. After judges Carrie Ann Inaba called it a “rough ride” and Bruno Tonioli called it “a terrible mess,” The Situation retreated to the parking lot to cool off from his steaming anger.
“I was upset. I actually stormed off upset because I tried so hard. I really did,” he told UsMagazine.com “I changed my haircut, I don’t know. Once I landed all those lifts and the judges were trashing me? I’ll be honest with you, it was in one ear and out the other. In the back of my head, I knew those lifts were extremely hard. I tried my best, and if they didn’t see it and wanted to be negative, so be it.”
His excuses echo those of last seasons contestant, Kate Gosselin, 35, who tried to run the gauntlet with her rumored diva behavior. Requesting to be sat separate from her fellow contestants, body guards, not fulfilling her practice committments and then being shocked by an unimpressed judging panel made her the dancer fans loved to hate and celebrated when she was eliminated from competition.
Although The Situation’s Jersey Shore cast mates said there was little hope for him to do well on the show, he has shown more commitment to making it work. His Twitter is a non-stop stream of DWTS chatter and his fear of failure has prompted more chest exposure each week in what we think may be a play for extra votes. He can’t rely on his hot ‘situation’ to win the show, but at least we have yet to see him do a dance as painfully bad as Kate’s infamously terrible Paso Doble.
