Mike "The Situation" doesn't think he was as bad as people said he was last night. He and Karina Smirnoff only received 15 out of a possible 30 points. But Mike still thinks he did ok.
"I didn't do bad," he told
Us Magazine after the show.
"I knew dancing wasn't my strong point. But I thought, 'I'm going to give this everything and try my hardest and whatever happens, happens.' And this was in front of millions of people! I just jumped head-first into it, like I do with everything."
Dancing wasn't his strong point?! Did someone inform him that this is a dancing competition?!
Mike went on to say he thought the judges were too critical of his ballroom skills. "I think they were definitely a little hard on me! I mean, I jumped off the stage! I thought that was cool."
"I am a very confident guy, but I understand you have to sometimes risk defeat to get a victory," he said. His goal on the show? "I'm trying to show people, 'Hey, this guy is going out of his element, and he's taking on a competition in front of millions of people. Maybe he's making a fool out of himself, but he's still doing okay,'" he told Us. I just want people to know this is an intelligent kid."
Riiiight. The only thing smart about that performance was that he left his shirt on for once. But don't expect that to last long. "I don't want to cop out and show abs right off the bat!" he said. "Maybe we're going to save The Situation for another situation."
That is, if they don't get kicked off!
