With the sixth and final season of 'Jersey Shore' underway, fans got a chance to see an early look at a changed Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino last night (October 4).

The MTV reality star was best-known for his numerous arguments with his housemates, especially with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi in season five.

But with his rehab stint to kick an addiction to prescription painkillers back in March, "The Situation" hopes to repair damaged relationships.

Sorrentino, 30, explained, "Ever since I've been out, I'm not gonna lie ... it's not easy. But at the same time, where I'm at right now, I'm at a good place. But it took a little bit to get there. In the beginning? A lot of rainy days, so to speak. A lot of rainy days."

“I wasn't a little nervous, but I definitely was a little anxious. I mean, I didn't know how everybody was going to react to me, but I was hoping for the best though,” he added.
