Who knew acting like idiots could make so much money? Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her Jersey Shore cast mates hit it big with their popular MTV reality show. Snooki, Pauly D, and The Situation will each earn $150,000 per episode for the sixth season, according to Radar.

After the season’s 12 episodes, these three will have made $1.8 million. On top of that, there was a $400,000 signing bonus at the start of the season, a $200,000 bonus at the end of the season, and $150,000 for each additional reunion special. By the time the sixth season’s over, Snooki, Pauly D, and the Sitch will have earned a total of $2.55 million each.

JWoww will bring in about $100,000 per episode, while Vinny will take home $90,000 per episode. Ron and Sammi will rake in $80,000 per episode (but who really cares about the on-again-off-again lovers anyway).

Since Deena wasn’t an original member of the crew, she’ll only be earning $40,000 per episode. Still, that’s not too shabby for just drinking and partying everyday.
