Jersey Shore crew get paid to party! Word on the street is, the cast mates of MTV’s hit reality-tv show are CAKING off their latest…
It is reported, that Snooki, Pauly D and the rest of the members get paid up to…$2 million per season for some cast members to be on the show!! The original numbers figured in at $10,000 for each cast mate, but being that they have reached Season 6 – their “GTL” popularity seems to serve them quite well! According to Radar Online,
“Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio are each taking home $150,000 per episode, with a season running about 12 episodes, which totals $1.8 million dollars, but they also get a reported $400,000 signing bonus at the beginning of the season, $200,000 bonus at the end of the season and for any additional reunion episodes they get the $150,000 for that too.
That totals a whopping $2.55 million dollars a season for Snooki, The Situation and Pauly D!
The rest of the cast doesn’t make quite as much as the top three, but they’re certainly not hurting either.
Jennie “JWoww” Farley brings in about $100,000 per episode and Vinny Guadagnino makes $90,000 an episode.
Lovebirds Ronnie Magro and Sammi Sweetheart each bring in about $80,000 per episode.
The newest member of the cast, Deena Cortese, who was just arrested while filming season six, brings in significantly less than her fellow cast mates, at about $40,000 per episode, but her numbers have been increasing lately.”
