The Situation has had to make a lot of adjustments in his new life as a wife’d up sober guido. In this sneak peek from Jersey Shore Season 6, Episode 8: “Free Deena” (airing November 8), Mike sits down with Deena Nicole’s boyfriend Chris Buckner, and evaluates his current Paula situation.

The Situation asked Paula to be his “official” girl only two episodes ago, but already, he says, “I’m really trying. Normally, I’d pull the shoot immediately.” He tells Chris, “I like when I see her, like 10 seconds at the tanning salon.”

But we think his heart is in it. He might laugh as he says, “This will slowly subside,” referring to his feelings of trepidation, but we think Mike is a good guy underneath all his swagger.
