Mike The Situation SorrentinoAlthough Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino had been in talks to become the face of the Plaza Hotel's luxury gym, NY Post reports the 'Jersey Shore' star has been barred from the deal. According to reports, the hotel's executives don't think the reality TV star is right for its patrons.

Sorrentino met with Ross Franklin, CEO of RF Health Club Consulting, in October, but Franklin reportedly decided to proceed without the reality star.

"The Plaza is not working with The Situation on any projects, including the gym space," a rep for the hotel said.
