jersey shore cast season 2 Ammunition For A Raise

Have you been contemplating asking your boss for a raise?  If not, you will now!  The cast of MTV‘s Jersey Shore renegotiated their contracts this year.  While I find myself strangely fascinated by the show, these numbers nearly made me physically ill.

Last season, their salaries were between $5,000 to $10,000 an episode.  This year, that was raised to $25,000 an episode.  Do the math.  That’s about $300,000 each per season.  Us Magazine gives us some more details…

  • MIKE “THE SITUATION” SORRENTINO will earn $100,000 for “Dancing with the Stars.”  Plus appearance fees, his cologne, a fitness DVD and a handful of endorsement deals.  He could be looking at $5 MILLION by the end of the year!
  • SNOOKI charges $20,000 to “walk an event’s red carpet,” and has hair products and a book in the pipeline.
  • J-WOWW has a fashion line on the side.
  • DJ PAULY D charges $20,000 to play your event.
  • RONNIE will host your party for between “$12,000 and $20,000.”  If he sells his drink “Ron-Ron Juice,” that’s even more $$$.
  • VINNY will make club appearances for $6,000-an-HOUR!  Plus, he’s working on a song.
  • ANGELINA “only” asks for $5,000 per appearance, but is also working on an “accessories line.”
  • SAMMI demands $15,000 per appearance, and is developing “beauty and fitness products.”

I don’t know about you, but I make $6.50 an hour and all the music I can stand 😉
