Jersey Shore Cast Will Earn Six-Figures This Season

The cast of Jersey Shore just got another pay raise…

Snooki and cast will each earn at least $100,000 for the Italy-bound fourth season of the show. Huge increase from Season Two’s $10,000 per episode.

Chris Linn, MTV executive vice president of programming and head of production, confirmed the news and along with it confirmed that the entire cast have now signed their contracts and will shortly be on their way to Italy [production is set to begin later this month or early May].

The news is no surprise, and with MTV also confirming that spin-offs for Pauly D, Snooki and JWoww will soon be in the works, along with book deals, jewelry and clothing lines, and thousand dollar appearances, it seems the cast are fast becoming famous. But will they fade away into has-beens after Jersey Shore wraps up? After all, the show doesn’t even plan to film The Jersey Shore at the Jersey shore this season – how long can this continue to mesmerize fans?
