While the rest of the Jersey Shore cast made their special flight to the VMAs, The Situation got stuck in Hurricane Irene traffic and couldn't make it.
He later tweeted:
I wish I could be at the VMA's but all flights were grounded because of the Hurricane. Sorry #SituationNation
We knew something had to be up when he didn't make a photo op!
Oh well, Mike. We think SituationNation made it juuuust fine!
