Mike Sorrentino is quickly becoming one of Hollywood's emerging talents. Born in Staten Island, N.Y., and raised in Manalapan, N.J., he is known for starring on the hit show "The Jersey Shore," now in its second season on MTV. He graduated from Manalapan High School and went on to college in New Jersey, where he graduated in 2004. After graduation, he tried his hand at personal training, fitness modeling and soon after was scouted for an upcoming reality show that would eventually become "The Jersey Shore." The popularity of the show caught fire, becoming one of the highest rated shows in MTV history and made "The Situation" into a pop culture phenomenon. As "The Jersey Shore" continues in its success, Sorrentino continues to gain in popularity -- nationally and internationally. He was nominated this year at the Teen Choice Awards for "Choice TV: Male Reality Star." His upcoming projects include a book, "Here's the Situation," which will be on store shelves Nov. 2, a vitamin line with nationwide store GNC, which launches in the fall, and a fitness DVD, which comes out in December.
Kurt Warner is the first quarterback to participate in "Dancing With the Stars." In 1999, he emerged from obscurity to lead the St. Louis Rams to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIV. That same year, Warner was named the NFL and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. As the ringleader of the Greatest Show on Turf, he led the Rams to two additional playoff appearances, including another Super Bowl, and received Pro Bowl honors for three consecutive years (1999-2001). He also earned his second NFL MVP in 2001. Injuries led Warner to move from the Rams to the Giants, and finally the Arizona Cardinals in 2005. In 2007, he led the Cardinals to their first Super Bowl berth, was voted to his fourth Pro Bowl and surpassed several Cardinals' franchise records, including touchdowns, attempts, completions, completion percentage and passer rating. Warner's gridiron accomplishments pale in comparison to the dedication he devotes to the community. In 2001, Kurt and his wife Brenda established the First Things First Foundation, a nonprofit public charity dedicated to affecting lives by promoting Christian values, sharing experiences and providing opportunities to encourage everyone that all things are possible when people seek to put first things first. Warner was born and raised in Iowa and played college football at the University of Northern Iowa. He lives in Arizona with his wife Brenda and seven children.
