MTV pulled the Jersey Shore gang together five years after they stopped using fist pumps at Seaside Heights for a short vacation, a Jersey Shore Family Vacation.
The cast of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jennifer “JWoww” Farley, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio, Deena Nicole Cortese, Vinny Guadagnino and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro did not reveal their salaries for the reboot, but it is no secret that they were well paid for the original series. How well depends on which member, because they have paid different amounts. After the show was over, they each left for other companies and made some money along the way.
Here is an overview of who paid what for the popular series and what their net worth is today.
Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi
You can’t think of Jersey Shore without thinking of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. Everyone’s favorite meatball went from making $ 2200 per show the first season to $ 150,000 per episode during the last season and today has a net worth of $ 4 million.
After spending the summer with her housemates on the beach, Polizzi did not leave the reality TV behind. She went to the star in a Snooki & JWoww and participated in Dancing with the Stars and the New Celebrity Apprentice. She also started a clothing line and wrote several books entitled Strong is the New Sexy, Baby Bumps, A Shore Thing, Gorilla Beach and Confessions of a Guidette.
Deena Nicole Cortese
Snooki’s fellow meatball, Deena Nicole Cortese, was only a member of the show until it was the third season and therefore not as bankrupt as her roommates, but she still made $ 40,000 per episode.
The “Blast in a Glass” has an estimated value of $ 1 million and appeared on another reality show, Couples Therapy, after its coastal days. She also earns money with sponsored Instagram ads.
When Jersey Shore finished at the end of the race, Vinny Guadagnino, who had paid $ 90,000 in 2012, stayed on TV.
He had guest roles on shows like The Hard Times by RJ Berger and 90210. He also played in his own talk show called The Show with Vinny and a Cooking Channel show entitled Vinny & Ma Eat America with his mother. Guadagnino also has a clothing line and wrote the book Control the Crazy. He has a net worth of $ 3 million.
Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley
Jenni “JWoww” Farley also stayed busy once the series was packed.
Farley banked $ 100,000 per episode at the end of the show before playing with her BFF in Snooki & JWoww. She was also featured on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars with her husband, Roger Matthews, and organized a TLC talk show called Young Americans.
In addition to television, Farley runs the Miss Domesticated website and organizes a YouTube series with her family. Her net worth is estimated at $ 3 million.
Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino
Mike Sorrentino was one of the most popular faces on the show and earned $ 150,000 during the last season. He later had performances at Dancing With the Stars, Celebrity Big Brother and Marriage Boot Camp, but he also suffered some financial misery.
Despite not being in the spotlight, fitness DVDs, a clothing collection and a vitamin line that represent its current value turned out to be much lower than the rest of the cast at $ 300,000. “The Situation” came into a very serious situation in 2014 when he was accused of tax crimes involving around $ 9 million in revenue. He was sentenced to prison after being found guilty of tax evasion.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro didn’t earn as much as some of his co-stars during the last season of Jersey Shore, but he’s worth just as much as today.
Ortiz-Magro earned $ 80,000 per episode in 2012 and has an estimated value of $ 3 million. After Jersey Shore concluded that he was featured on Famously Single, got involved with TNA Wrestling, appeared in Xenadrine ads and promoted Gen X Biotech, a marijuana company.
Pauly ‘DJ Pauly D’ DelVecchio
The richest member of the Jersey Shore cast is by far Pauly D, who has a net worth of around $ 20 million.
DelVecchio earned a $ 150,000 installment for the last season of the show, but most of his money comes from his career as a deejay. After finding the fame of Jersey Shore, DJ Pauly D was very popular and started working at Moon, Rain and the Palms Pool at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. He did special appearances at other clubs and private appearances in which he paid no less than $ 40,000 on a show.
In addition, DelVecchio launched sunscreen products and appeared in other reality shows, including The Pauly D Project and Famously Single.
