PGTW has previously reported some of the incredible salaries paid to the boozing cast of Jersey Shore… now there’s new details itemizing just how much all the cast members get per episode.
RadarOnline.com reports that in season six of the hit MTV reality show the cast is bringing in big bucks. Here’s a breakdown:
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio: $150,000 per episode, with a season running about 12 episodes, which totals $1.8 million dollars.
A reported $400,000 signing bonus at the beginning of the season, $200,000 bonus at the end of the season.
$150,000 for reunion episodes.
TOTAL: $2.55 million dollars a season for Snooki, The Situation and Pauly D!
These itemized numbers vary slightly from the numbers we reported in April, but are roughly the same total.
Jennie “JWoww” Farley: $100,000 per episode
Vinny Guadagnino: $90,000 an episode.
Ronnie Magro and Sammi Sweetheart: roughly $80,000 per episode.
Deena Cortese is a new cast member. She reportedly gets about $40,000 per episode. Still not too shabby! She’s likely to get more in her next contract negotiation.
These figures, of course, don’t include the money each cast member makes for public appearances. DJ Pauly D makes significant sums for club appearances, and “The Situation” has done incredibly well with product deals. Sorrentino has deals with nutritional supplements and even had been in negotiations about fronting a chain of gyms. He also has a comic book coming out this summer.
