Mike ‘The Situation’ from Jersey Shore fame will be joining this season’s cast of Dancing With the Stars, but RadarOnline.com has learned the reality star with the rock hard abs is apprehensive because he’s off to a late start.

“He’s a little nervous but really excited about the opportunity,” said a close friend of the family. “He doesn’t come from a dancing background, and wishes he could have gotten started with the rest of the dancers.”
