The unexpectedly popular MTV series has taken the nation by storm, so it’s no doubt they want to continue the magic. Sources close to the contract negotiations are saying that the cast is sticking together “Friends Style” and making sure everyone is paid the same per episode.
As it stands, MTV wants to keep them at a $10,000 signing bonus, and $5,000 per episode. So each cast member would walk away with about $75,000 per season.
What is upsetting the Shore cast? Reality series on MTV that do not pull in the audience that “Jersey Shore” does, such as The Hills, are paying stars $100,000 per episode.
MTV has the Jersey Shore cast under contract for another year, no technically nothing has to change. But these kind of negotiations always happens when shows become hits.
How much do you think the cast should get per episode?
