The cast of Jersey Shore, who have been the new break out stars of this reality show TV season, are demanding big raises after monster rating for their finale broadcast earlier this week.
The show which was been heavily protested by Italian-American groups, has been the guilty pleasure of millions who can’t seem to get enough of the fist-pumping, muscle bound, hot tub shenanigans. Check out below what they have told MTV executives about how much they wanna get paid.
For Jersey Shore season two, MTV offered a bonus to each of the cast members of $10,000 as well as a payment of $5,000 per episode. That is a lot of money for these cast members, but they rejected it apparently stating that they wanted every cast member (eight main ones) to get the same raise.
Now MTV has countered with an offer of $10,000 per episode, which is double what was offered before, and probably much more than these kids could have made in their real jobs. There hasn’t been an update as to whether the Jersey Shore cast is going to accept this new offer from MTV, but not we are getting into some huge numbers for a “reality” show that sometimes doesn’t seem so much real as it does staged.
