Season 5 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation premieres tonight! Will you be watching? Personally, I have not watched an episode of Jersey Shore since high school. However, since I am currently in quarantine with nothing else to do, I figured why not give it a try.

According to Just Jared, the entire OG cast will be in season 5 minus Sammie Sweatheart and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. It was announced back in March that Ronnie would be stepping back to focus on his mental health. If you have been keeping up with anything he has been going through over the years ranging from domestic violence incidents to alcoholism, to getting arrested multiple times, you know that it is for the best that he sit this season out.

Have you ever wondered how much each cast member made? Jersey shore has been a long-running show, and you would think that each star has made millions of dollars over the years. Surprisingly, that isn't accurate. Every member of the Jersey Shore has a net worth of over a million dollars except the Situation. That is right. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentin only has a net worth of $300,000. There is a reason for this, however. According to Just Jared, the reason his bank account is much lighter than his fellow cast members is because of his tax evasion situation. (no pun intended) Back in 2018, he pled guilty to one count of tax evasion and as a result, spent 8 months in prison.

What I will say about Mike the Situation is that even though he has the least money, he does seem the happiest. He recently got married, wrote a book, and even put out a rap song. He is also smiling and so positive in interviews and when speaking to the press. I guess being in jail gave him a new perspective on life.
