Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino checked into a New York federal prison on Tuesday January 15 to serve an 8 month sentence for tax evasion and has all the exclusive details about his terrifying first day behind bars!

After saying goodbye to his fans on social media, the 36-year-old Jersey Shore star entered Otisville Federal Correctional Institution and, according to a former inmate, the reality star got a huge dose of reality.

“Mike was first sent to intake where he was searched and dressed out. They stripped him naked and searched him to the point of squatting and coughing,” Federal prison consultant Dan Wise told exclusively.

“He was then dressed in proper prison attire and was assigned to a unit where he received property, such bed sheets, a towel, face cloth, socks, one t-shirt and uniform. They issued him prison boots for working, which are incredibly uncomfortable. They will give him a cheap version of crocks to wear in the shower. If he wants, he can purchase running shoes and clothing items such as sweats and boxers.”

According to Wise, however, The Situation’s situation isn’t nearly as bad as people think! In fact, the minimum-security facility is known as ‘camp cupcake!”

“By now, the other inmates have approached him to show him around, giving him coffee. Mike is realizing that this will be a cakewalk if he does not do anything stupid. Guys will offer to do his laundry and clean his cell area for him for a weekly fee which I am sure he will pay.”

There is plenty of privacy for the reality star when it comes to showers and toilets. "All of the stalls have doors. There is hot water and all the amenities that any bathroom and shower should have,” Wise told

As reported, Sorrentino will get to have a decent meal — consisting of meatloaf or a soy burger, mashed potatoes, tomato gravy, corn, whole wheat bread and a beverage — before “lights out,” which is at 10 p.m.

Sorrentino was sentenced to eight months in federal prison on tax evasion charges in October 2018. His brother, Marc, was sentenced to two years. Following Mike’s release, he will have 24 months of supervised release and 500 hours of community service to complete.
