Those Lovable Kids from Jersey Shore Finally Got Another Raise!

Last summer, our Jersey Shore sweethearts made news for earning $10,000 per episode.  I remember reading that and thinking “really, these wacky people get paid ten thousand dollars to party on the beach for a summer?!”  But these guys have come a long way since then, and they’re getting the paychecks to prove it.  You want to know how much they’re making for the fourth season?

$100,000. Per episode.

Now, the $100,000 is just for the “core group” of the cast, which probably means Snooki and The Situation, maybe JWoww and Pauly D, but I wouldn’t think the rest of the cast would be all that far behind.

Doesn’t that feel good, guys?  To just snuggle up next to the poverty line while these kids bring in literal hundreds of thousands of dollars to get trashed in Italy?  Is anyone else questioning every decision you’ve ever made?

  • It’s going to be SO fun when they’re like: “I’M ITALIAN, Y’ALL!” and an actual Italian asks “well, but do you speak Italian?”.

  • It wasn’t a life option for me because when I was their age there was no reality TV. Well, yes, there was, but it was called “the evening news” and people generally didn’t get paid for being on it. You actually tried to avoid it. Like your mother would be ashamed of you if you were on it.
    But anyway, the viewers are the ones giving them the pay raise. If people stopped watching this crap, or stopped watching it so avidly, this wouldn’t be happening.
    Don’t look at it and it will go away.
