If you didn’t know it by now, this week’s episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation should have sealed the deal: MTV‘s party-happy stars are all grown up now, and The Situation‘s perfect engagement on Thursday night’s episode just proves it!
With the help of his Jerzday roomies, Mike Sorrentino went into full-on proposal mode on the show last night, with every detail down pat — from the matching outfits, to all the necessary errands for supplies, and of course a beautiful bouquet of flowers for his bride-to-be Lauren Pesce.
Later that night, Mike took Lauren out to a romantic dinner while the roomies set up the house, officially kicking off Operation Team Proposal, which was… a little redundant, but whatever!!!
By the time Mike got back with Lauren, the stage was set — and the Situation delivered!
Speaking to Lauren in the newly-decorated backyard pool area, Mike said (below):
“I fell in love with you because you loved me when I couldn’t even love myself. You’re my best friend, my college sweetheart, my better half. You make me a better person. Please make me the happiest man on earth. Will you please marry me?”
Of COURSE she said yes, too!!!
Mike later said to the camera in a confessional (below):
“We’ve been through so much, and for us to finally get engaged, it’s really special. Because it wasn’t guaranteed. It’s been very stormy for a while. The odds were against me. People bet against me. But against all odds, she’s been there throughout the ups and downs, the good times and the bad times. I’ve been wanting to get to this day for so long. And right now, I’m feeling like all these bad times that I’ve been through, it’s all worth it for this moment right here … Lauren is the light at the end of my tunnel. Lauren is my everything, Lauren is my best friend, she is my soulmate, she is my better half. And knowing that I found that, I’m willing to face anything in life.”

Grab your tissue. The Situation is about to pop the question to @lauren_pesce, and I’m already crying! ðŸ˜ ðŸ™Œ The highly anticipated #JSFamilyVacation proposal airs this JERZDAY at 8/7c on @mtv. ðŸ’A post shared by Jersey Shore (@jerseyshore) on Jun 19, 2018 at 9:00am PDT
We couldn’t be happier for the happy couple… even though Mike has, uh, that little potential prison situation to deal with a few months from now.
But with Lauren by his side, he can clearly face anything!!!
