Mike 'The Situation' Takes His Dance Partner Tanning

Mike "The Situation" has an easy time impressing the scantily clad ladies of Seaside Heights and South Beach (his method? ab flashing), but when it comes to worldly ballroom judges, he can barely get them to crack a smile. Thankfully, his smooth-moving "Dancing with the Stars" partner, Karina Smrinoff, has been showing him the ropes, but with back-to-back low scores, the duo needs to find another way to sync up their rhythm.

Perhaps in order for the "Jersey Shore" castie to really connect with his partner, she needs to experience his world. So where did they go for said bonding session? The tanning salon, natch. If you can't beat 'em, bronze 'em!
