Like the rest of his Jersey Shore castmates, The Situation rose to fame thanks in large part to his constant state of inebriation and subsequent ability to speak whatever the hell was on his mind.

So what’s the poor guy supposed to do now that he’s fresh out of a stint in rehab and reportedly sober? Apparently not club promoting, which previously earned Mike up to $25,000 per appearance.

"Clubs aren't going to want him to promote while stone-cold sober," an industry source told Us (via OMG!) of The Situation. "His out-of-control character on the show is what's appealing about him."

Clubs don’t seem to have a problem bribing a pregnant and sober Snooki to their establishments, which doesn’t seem quite fair. But keeping Mike far from alcohol and drugs is probably a good idea at the moment — he’ll have enough temptations back at the Shore House for Season 6.
