“Jersey Shore” Paychecks Are Gaining Zeros Faster Then The Cast Of “Friends”
Their first time around at Seaside Heights, the castmates of “Jersey Shore” made a reported $5,000 per episode, plus room, board, and a duck phone. For season two, they got upped to $10K per episode, plus bonuses. But the word on the street is that for season four of the show—which will soon be filmed in Italy—the cast members will each be pulling in $100,000 per episode. That’s an 1000 percent increase. Which means our favorite guidos and guidettes’ salaries are accelerating faster than the cast of “Friends”‘ did—it took Jennifer Aniston and crew five seasons to get six-figure paychecks. And need I remind you that in season nine and 10, they were banking $1 million per episode? Do you think “Jersey Shore”‘s popularity will keep ascending or will it taper off soon? Cause if it continues, the cast will soon be able to buy a small country.
