TheDailyBeast: TV’s Nastiest Contract Battles

‘Jersey Shore’ Cast

The cast of "Jersey Shore" may not be able to get through a night out without fights, vomit, hair pulling, or, in some cases, arrests, but they can sure drive a hard bargain. In July 2010, while filming the end of the reality show’s second season (which MTV instead decided to use as the start of the third season, giving the cast members a chance to renegotiate contracts), Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, and the rest of the "Jersey Shore" cast reportedly demanded a pay bump from $10,000 to $30,000 per episode. And it was only up from there—for Season 5, at least one cast member (Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio) was reportedly raking in $150,000 per episode.
