Jersey Shore Salaries Revealed - How Much Does Snooki Make?
The Jersey Shore salaries have been revealed and Snooki and some of the rest of the MTV gang are pulling in seven figures a season.
Snooki, Mike and Pauly are each paid $150,000 per episode, and every season has roughly 12 episodes, which gives them each an estimated grand total of $1.8 million dollars per season.
Those figures are a very big increase over their $10,000-per-episode take for Season 2 (premiering July 29) -- and a huge increase over the $5,000-per-episode they earned in Season 1.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, JWoww earns a bit less and brings in about $100,000 per episode and Vinny Guadagnino makes $90,000 per.
Ronnie and Sammi each bring in about $80,000 per show installment, while newcomer Deena Cortese earns $40,000 an episode.
Speaking of the Deena...
She was arrested on Sunday on a charge of disorderly conduct. (see arrest photos below).
The MTV reality star was handcuffed after police officers in New Jersey reportedly caught her hitting out at passing cars outside a bar in Seaside Heights, where the show's cast is currently filming the upcoming sixth season of the program.
Local police chief Tommy Boyd tells the NBC New York news channel, "(It was) nothing major, but we can't put up with it."
The 25 year old was released after a few hours in custody.
Cortese isn't the first Jersey Shore star to get in trouble for her boozing - in 2010, her cast mate Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi was ordered to complete two days of community service following an arrest for allegedly drinking alcohol in public while filming the hit series' third season.
