‘Teen Mom’ Stars’ Salaries Revealed

/ October 28, 2010

The stars of Teen Mom are reportedly earning a paycheck far bigger than their non-famous peers.

According to Life & Style (via Huffington Post), the Teen Mom principals earn $60,000 to $65,000 per season, which typically consists of twelve episodes.

While $60,000 may sound like a lot to your average teen, the salary is chump change compared to the salaries of other MTV reality stars. Jersey Shore dynamos Snooki and The Situation are reportedly pulling in $30,000 per episode (or $360,000 per season) for their upcoming third installment of the party-heavy series.

Meanwhile, the beautiful stars of The Hills were making serious bank during their final season. Stars Kristin Cavallari, Heidi Montag and Audrina Patridge were pulling in $90,000 to $100,000 per episode.

While the stars of Teen Mom live a rather modest lifestyle compared to their reality counterparts, the issue of money comes up often on the show. Watch cash-strapped Farrah get stressed about money-related woes below.
