Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola tells she is "excited" her Jersey Shore costar Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino will be on the show's 11th season, airing Sept. 20.

"I will be rooting for him every week -- nothing like a little Jersey on the dance floor!" she tells Us.

Her No. 1 wish? "I just hope his partner knows how to fist pump," she tells Us.

Also anxious to see The Situation's moves? Contestant Margaret Cho!

"I cannot wait to meet the Situation!" she told Us at a DWTS press conference Monday night. "He is awesome and I'm very excited!"
