“Before joining the cast, Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio never earned more than a few hundred dollars a week as a DJ, but now he's grappled on WrestleMania. Sitch went from an assistant manager at a fitness center to competing on Dancing With the Stars. They've become mini industries onto themselves; each generates between $20,000 to $50,000 per personal appearance alone. The Situation will earn between $2 million and $5 million this year; Pauly D recently signed a DJ'ing deal at Palms Las Vegas that could bring him as much as $50,000 a night. In the last go around of negotiations this year, MTV agreed to pay several of the cast more than $100,000 per episode, locking them in through season six.”

All I can say is, Oy! With these salaries, why bother going to college.
