Jersey Shore Cast Members Will Earn Six Figures Next Season

By

After getting paid to screw around, and often just screw, at a beach house in New Jersey and one in Miami, the Jersey Shore cast is getting an enormous raise to do the same thing in Italy. Members of the “core group” — Snooki? Mike? — will be earning at least $100,000 per episode next season, according to Entertainment Weekly. (Most seasons are thirteen episodes.) There's something inspiring about this news, but if you find it harrowing, you only have yourself to blame: Jersey Shore is delivering record-breaking ratings. Meanwhile, Toni Morrison is weeping.
