Partying and Tanning Pays Off Big Time!


How much does the cast of the Jersey Shore get paid for completing life’s simplest tasks? Almost $2 million a season for some cast members, has exclusively learned!

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.

According to a source close to her, “With all the drama that Deena has been bringing to the show, including kissing a girl and even getting arrested, her salary is definitely going up thanks to that.”
