The Situation leaves DWTS
'Jersey Shore' star Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino became the fourth person to be voted off 'Dancing with the Stars' last night (12.10.10)
Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino became the fourth person to be voted off 'Dancing with the Stars' last night (12.10.10).
After a series of low scores in the competition since it started a month ago, Mike's Argentine tango with professional partner Karina Smirnoff - which scored a dismal 12 out of 30 points from the judges - landed him in the bottom two acts with Bristol 'The Pistol' Palin.
Mike, who had opened his dance with an impressive flip, declared his score "a situation" before he was sent home due to his low score and low votes from the public.
Speaking about his time on the show, 'Jersey Shore' star Mike said: "I was like, 'You know what, if I got eliminated today, I put it all on the floor last night, so I bow out gracefully.'
"It is what it is, I tried my best. At the end of the day, somebody's gotta go home."
Mike also felt he didn't get enough encouragement from the judging panel, adding: "They were so unpositive and didn't even see the work I put in, didn't even see the progress I made this week and you know what, you know what? I'm done with this. (sic)"
The highest score of the night went to Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough, who scored a combined total of 56 points, including the only judge's perfect 10 of the evening. The performance, also an Argentine tango, means the pair hold their position at the top of the leader board.
