Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is known for his partying ways, but for his next reality show, the focus is on something much different – his relationship.
Sorrentino and Lauren Pesce, his girlfriend and college sweetheart, are one of several famous couples on WE tv's Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, premiering Friday.
While the Jersey Shore alum, 32, was eager to sign up for the show's third season, Pesce took a little convincing, he told PEOPLE during the show's premiere party in West Hollywood on Thursday.

Apparently, Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett need a little more "reality" in their life to shore up their marriage.

Wilkinson and Baskett will be joined on the show by Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Lauren Pesce from Jersey Shore and The Sorrentinos, Aubrey O'Day and Travis Garland from Making the Band and Celebrity Apprentice, Tami Roman and Reggie Youngblood from Basketball Wives, and Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd from Big Brother.

Two years after he filmed the final season of MTV's smash hit Jersey Shore, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is moving on with his life – but it wasn't so easy.
"When I had gotten out of Jersey Shore, I had a year to settle down and find out who I was, and I wasn't in the best shape," Sorrentino tells PEOPLE. "I had to rebuild myself inside and out."
That included gaining control of an addiction to prescription medication, drugs and alcohol, with a trip to rehab in 2012.
