RadarOnline.com has released a rundown of the INSANE MONEY the cast of "Jersey Shore" is pulling down for the upcoming sixth season . . . and you should be warned: It's pretty depressing.
--SNOOKI, THE SITUATION and PAULY D get the most. They each make $150,000 per episode. There will probably be around 12 episodes, although the official number hasn't been set. That comes out to about $1.8 million.
--But they also got a $400,000 "signing bonus" . . . and will get another $200,000 bonus after the season wraps. If MTV decides to add additional "reunion episodes" at the end of the season, they'll also get $150,000 for each one of those.
--That puts the grand total in the neighborhood of $2.55 million.
--The rest of the cast is also picking up ridiculous paychecks. JWOWW makes $100,000 per episode, and VINNY rakes in $90,000. RONNIE and SAMMI each make $80,000 per episode.
--DEENA makes $40,000 per episode. (--That should soften the blow of the $500 fine she could get after being arrested for drunkenly walking through the streets over the weekend. Although, MTV will probably pick that up, too.)
(--What a great example of the American Dream! Just three short years ago, Snooki was reportedly earning only $200 per episode for the first season of "Jersey Shore".)
RELATED COMEDY: Snooki is upset about nude photos of her that were leaked online. Even more upset about the photos? Everyone who saw them.
