The 'Jersey Shore' Cast Visited Mike "The Situation" In Prison And The Photos Are Wild

In the interest of being 100% transparent, I was a major Jersey Shore fan back when it was airing. I was probably way too young to be watching raunchy, reality TV shows. But nonetheless, it was iconic.

Influencers of their time.


They pretty much shaped a generation.

You might think we're exaggerating, but you're the one reading the article, aren't you?

People still love the show even after all these years.

Sometimes something just doesn't go out of style.

It's definitely worth a binge watch.

Here's what OG cast of "Jersey Shore" is up to nowadays.


Vinny and Pauly have their own dating show called A Double Shot At Love.

It's like The Bachelor but doubly hilarious and dramatic.

Snooki, AKA, Nicole, is a full-time mother of two, soon to be three!

She's still married to Jionni LaValle, going strong, living her best life.

She has really come a long way.

Oh, and fun fact, Snooki appeared on another TV show.

You might have heard of a little show called Supernatural.

She appeared in a season for one episode, and she played a demon.

Deena is married and has a son. Her and Snooki's kids actually have play-dates together, it's pretty adorable tbh.

I never thought I'd see the day when Snooki and Deena were fully grown-up moms.

#SquadGoals, though.

Jenni 'JWOWW' Farley is also living the mom-life.

She may not be with Roger anymore, but she has two children, a lucrative business, a new boyfriend, and she's looking better than ever.

Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola is engaged.

She and her fiancé are rock solid — which is apparently why she did not return to the Jersey Shore reunion.

Ronnie is, well, still being Ronnie. He recently got liposuction to make his abs more defined.

He also has a daughter with his on-again-off-again girlfriend, Jen Harley.

Which brings us to Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino.

Mike is currently in prison, serving eight months for tax evasion.

He has been in the slammer for about four months so far.

Some took their chance to make him into a meme right away.

Okay, this one is pretty good.

And be honest, you would watch that show. We definitely would.

He turned himself in and pleaded guilty to offences related to nearly $9 million in income.


Before commencing his sentence, he posted a video letting fans know that he will be "back and better than ever".

Lucky for Mike, he has such kind supportive friends, willing to visit him behind bars.


The entire Jersey Shore gang paid him a visit, and the photos were everything we dreamed of and more.

It's truly heartwarming to see that everybody is still so close, even after all these years.

Well, except Sammi.

Also, please note that Mike's wife is wearing a "Free Stitch" t-shirt.

After the photo was posted, the whole crew made sure to comment — sending off their love and support.

This is weirdly making me feel very sentimental. I think I need to reevaluate my priorities.

Here's a photo from another time Pauly and Vinny went to visit.

For somebody that's in jail, Mike is beaming.

If I didn't know any better, I'd say this photo was taken on some kind of autumn, family-oriented holiday, in his backyard.

Vinny even commented on the photo, pointing out that Mike is glowing more than everyone else in the photo and he's the only one in jail.

Prison seems to be doing wonders for his complexion.

Evidently, Mike has been keeping himself in shape behind bars, cause look at those arms.

His arm is making Vinny's arm look like a brittle twig.

In another four months, Mike will be free at last, and I'm guessing there will be a warm welcoming committee waiting for him when he gets out.
