Jersey Shore Cast Gets Six-Figure Raise

Looks like there will plenty of money for the Jersey Shore cast to go tanning: At least some of the reality show stars are getting a minimum of $100,000 per episode, sources said Friday. The sources said the eight-member cast and MTV had finished salary negotiations and the “core group” of the cast will bring in at least six figures per episode. It’s a huge raise, especially considering they only netted about $10,000 an episode for season 2—although most of the cast picked up heaps of money with appearances and product endorsements. The show also closed a deal to shoot the next season in Italy.
