What does The Situation’s girlfriend Paula Pickard love about him? It’s a question JWOWW seemed confounded by on Jersey Shore Season 6, Episode 8: “Control the Crazy". And thanks to a long double date with Paula, Mike, Deena Nicole, and her boyfriend Chris Buckner, we heard a little bit more from Paula about what she sees in her man.

While having a cigarette with Deena, Paula opens up about her attraction to Mike. “There’s that bad boy quality about him,” she says. “But he’s a sweetheart, he’s a teddy bear.”

Even though Snooki and Sammi seemed outraged when The Situation jokingly said to Paula, “When you sit there and smile,” he likes it better, we think it’s unfair to judge relationships from the outside looking in. Paula seems to be confident in her relationship status, and really doesn’t look like she minds Mike’s comments.

Do you think they have a good relationship?
