“Dancing with the Stars” former hopeful and “Jersey Shore” star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino says steroids are not behind his famous six-pack.

On Monday, The Situation addressed the drug rumors on ABC’s “Nightline.”

“Oh never, never, never,” the reality star told “Nightline’s” Chris Connelly when asked if he’s ever taken steroids. “The steroid look is definitely a bulkier, bulkier look. I have a more thin, lean look. And I don’t judge. If somebody’s going to take steroids, that’s their prerogative and their body. I’m worried about taking care of myself, working out and taking my body to the best it could.”

Following Monday’s “DWTS,” where The Situation and partner Karina Smirnoff’s Argentine tango garnered the night’s lowest score, the reality star continued to addres the rumors with Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson. He was eliminated Tuesday.

“My concern is taking care of me, taking care of my body nutritional wise,” he said. “Doing the right things in the gym in order for my body to look like this.”

He did, however, admit to a small temporary enhancement.

“The Situation is doing whatever it takes to play the part,” he told Shaun when asked about the makeup he was sporting. “I’m so confident, I can put on that mascara.”

The Situation drew the line when Shaun asked if he’d ever add some bling to his abs.

“I don’t know about a belly ring,” he added “But, I am trying my hardest out there.”
