I don’t care who you are, how much money you have in your bank account, or what moral creed you subscribe; we all have all succumbed to some unnatural force that has led us to sit down and watch at least one episode of The Jersey Shore. For six seasons Americans followed the lives eight self-proclaimed “Guidos and Guidettes” as they partied, fought, and embarrassed themselves on national television. It’s a guilty pleasure in which thousands of people will refuse to admit. The thing is that people lie, but numbers do not. The Jersey Shore was MTV’s most watched television show. In return for the high ratings, MTV shelled out big bucks to the cast. In the end it looks like the cast got the last laugh because the cast got some serious dough from MTV.
Jersey Shore: Season 6 Salaries:
Snooki- $150k/per episode
Mike “The Situation”- $150k/per episode
DJ Pauly D- $150k/per episode
JWow- $100k/per episode
Ronnie- $80k/per episode
Vinnie- $90k/per episode
Sammie- $80k/per episode
Deena- $40k/per episode
With an average of 11 episodes per season, and two seasons aired annually, you do the math! In addition to their television salaries the cast charges a nice amount in appearance fees. As expected, the more they increase in popularity the higher they will demand. To get DJ Pauly D to spin at your event he reportedly charges $40,000. “The Situation” and Snooki reportedly charge $25,000 to show up on the red carpet to an event or club. Get prepared to shell out somewhere between $15,000-$20,000 to see Ronnie or Sammie at an event.
Although The Jersey Shore cast is in demand they are not considered A-list celebrities. Have you ever wondered how much A-list celebrities charge to make an appearance? For 25 years Celebrity Talent International has been booking celebrities and public figures for corporate events. They happen to outline the range that it costs to book the persons that their agency represents online. If you want a top celebrity at your event,make sure you have top dollar to shell out because these fees are incredible!
