Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and her Jersey Shore castmates will be pulling in money hand over fist for the sixth season of the popular MTV show. Snooki, Pauly D, and The Situation will earn $150,000 per episode, Radar reports. Multiply that by 12 episodes and the total season's haul comes out to $1.8 million each. Tack on a reported $400,000 signing bonus at the beginning of the season, another $200,000 bonus at the end of the season, and $150,000 for each additional reunion special, and just like that, Snooks, Sitch and Pauly are $2.55 million richer.
JWoww will reportedly earn about $100,000 per ep, while Vinny will rake in $90,000, and Ron and Sammi come away with $80,000 each.
But what about Deena, the other meatball? Well, since she wasn't an original cast member, her earnings aren't nearly as high as the others, but don't feel sorry for her. She will still make $40,000 an episode.
