Forget Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s impressive appearance fee for her college gigs — she and her merry band of “Jersey Shore” guidos and guidettes are doing just fine with their day gigs, thank you very much.
EW.com reports that Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and the rest of the reality show’s cast, who are preparing to film their series’ fourth season in Italy, have just received a substantial pay bump, and will each rake in at least $100,000 per episode.
With a typical season running 13 episodes, they’re now millionaires.
That kind of money will buy a whole lotta spray-tanning sessions and industrial-strength hair gel. And that’s not even including the various book deals, endorsements and every other money-making opportunity that presents itself to the modern reality-TV personality.
Job security doesn’t seem to be much of a problem for the orange-hued media darlings, either; as reported last week, before they’ve even begun filming the latest season of their show, MTV has already found spin-offs for Polizzi, Farley and Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio.
