Michael Sorrentino's nickname is a misnomer: Having a washboard stomach is not "The Situation." Having a gut is.

Mark Malkoff didn't quite have a gut when he started his latest video challenge for My Damn Channel, but he did feel like most people who see people with six-pack abs and wonder: Could I have six-pack abs, too?

Says Malkoff: "Men's magazines always have headlines reading, 'Get Six-Pack Abs in 30 days.' I wanted to see what a regular guy who doesn't work out would have to subject himself to in order to look like 'The Situation.'"

See what happened, after the jump!


With help two to three times each day from a personal trainer, Robert Brace, Malkoff's workouts took him across New York City, and took 16.8 pounds off of his already slight frame. Spoiler alert?
