'Jersey Shore': Fughetaboutit

Posted By on Fri, Aug 31, 2012 at 8:30 AM

Say goodbye to the guido and guidettes of Jersey Shore. MTV announced that the show will conclude after it's upcoming season, which starts on Oct. 4.

At its height, the show drew more than 8 million viewers. According to a June report at nationalledger.com, the "stars" salaries are:


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.

Meanwhile, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the 2011 yearly mean pay for a firefighter was $45,250. A family social worker: $44,410. An EMT: $34,030.

Something is wrong with this picture.
