'Jersey Shore' Stars Salaries Are Outrageous!
How Much Money Do the 'Jersey Shore' Stars Make?
The Jersey Shore stars are raking in the cash -- check out their salaries and then ponder why exactly these reality trash bags get paid so much.
No doubt about it, being on a successful MTV reality show really pays off.
In addition to the fame and adoration, the Jersey Shore stars are sitting pretty, financially speaking.
RadarOnline has the scoop on the Jersey Shore stars salaries and you won't believe it.
Some of the cast earn almost $2 million a season!
For a little perspective, consider that they had to lobby for an extra $10,000 a season when the little show got its start.
Now, in season six, their financial worries are over, with Snooki, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Pauly D earning $150,000 PER episode. Run that through the old calculator and they're pulling in $1.8 million per season.
They also earn a $400,000 signing bonus at the start of each season, an extra $150,000 for reunion episodes, and a $200,000 bonus at season's end.
Cha-ching! That comes out to $2.55 million each season when all is said and done.
Plus, most of the Jersey Shore gang have other projects going on too -- endorsements, books, music, etc.

Jennie "JWoww" Farley earns $100,000 per episode and Vinny Guadagnino gets $90,000 an episode, with Ronnie and Sammi reportedly earning $80,000 an episode.
Not too shabby, for partying and hooking up on TV!
