Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino — The Long Islander who made the phrase “Gym, Tan, Laundry” a national phenomenon — is cashing in on his chiseled frame by releasing a workout DVD devoted to turning that marshmallowy midsection into a well-crafted work of art.

The Sitch’s pals have the choice of Sorrentino posing either topless, or semi-topless, with his white tank top pulled up. The winning picture will serve as the cover of the exercise video.
