Fear not, Jersey Shore fans: The Situation has returned to the GTL lifestyle. At least, that's the impression made by the reality show personality on social media this weekend. After the well-tanned, clothes-accessorizing and gym-enthused TV star found himself getting a bit flabby on the recent revival of the mega-popular MTV series, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, it appears that Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is back to his usual self, particularly in getting ready for his upcoming wedding to Lauren Pesce. Here's what he posted on social media after his wedding shower ceremony.
These wedding shower photos feature The Situation looking snazzy in a fashionable button-up shirt and other well-groomed attire. He appears to be back in more toned shape as well, as his physical appearance is similar to what fans of the long-standing reality TV series are used to seeing from the ab-flashing star. Furthermore, The Situation not only looks good and healthy, but he also looks happy. As he prepares himself for a marriage that fans wouldn't have seen coming back in the day, The Situation seems to be cleaning himself up and flying straight. The buttoned-down, sobered-up, well-dressed man in these photos is what we should expect to see at his wedding.
During the wedding shower, The Situation was joined by the regular roaster of familiar faces, including Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Angelina Pivarnick, Chris Larangeira, and Vinny Guadagnino. As it was reported by Life & Style Magazine, Snooki's 4-year-old daughter Giovanna LaValle was also in attendance at the wedding shower, as was Jenni "JWoww" Farley, making her first public appearance at the event since her recent divorce. The shower took place in New Jersey, naturally, at the Osteria Cucina Rustica restaurant in Marlboro. By all accounts, it was a very pleasant evening.
Here's a photo of the Jersey Shore cast together during the wedding shower, courtesy of Snooki's Instagram account. It also provides us with another fashionable look at The Situation and his revamped, you know, situation.
Meanwhile, The Situation and Lauren Pesce released an exclusive statement to E! News about the wedding shower, which you can read below.
"GTL," for the uninhibited, stands for "Gym, Tan, Landry." It's the means through which The Situation and the Shore crew professes to stay fresh and mint. With his recent weight gain and lack of attention to his physical appearance, some fans were wondering if the days of GTL were left in the well-brushed sands of New Jersey beaches, never to be revisited or renewed again. But fear not, though, for it seems that The SItuation has been reacquainted to his GTL mantra, no matter what the "L" stands for. And with that, we should expect to see and hear more updates from the reality television personality, particularly as the big wedding day loom ahead.
Jersey Shore Family Vacation airs on MTV on Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET.
