There's no denying that the cast of 'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation' lives lavishly. From mansions with in-home fitness centers, spas, and pools to renting out huge hotels, the roommates' lifestyle has changed dramatically since the show's inception 11 years ago. Fans are left wondering how much they each make for their time on the show.

The eight original Jersey Shore roommates – Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Pauly Delvecchio, Vinny Guadagnino, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Angelina Pivarnick, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, Jenni "Jwoww" Farley, and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi – changed their lives irrevocably 11 years ago when they chose to spend their summer at the shore with a bunch of strangers. Although some new faces have joined the party and some have left, the majority of the original cast members continue to feature in the spin-off, 'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.' Fans have watched as the wild roommates grew up over the years. Some are (finally) in committed relationships, while others have established their own families.


Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 5: 5 Things you need to know about MTV show

'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation' fans want Snooki out!

Every one of the housemates, including those who no longer appear on the program, flaunt their lavish lifestyles on social media regularly. While most of them have side ventures that pay well, the group can only thank 'Jersey Shore' for providing them with the funds to support their lifestyles. While many people believe that the cast receives equal pay for their time on the show, this may not be the case.

What is each roommate's income and current net worth on 'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation?'

Angelina Pivarnick

Angelina earned more money than we imagined during her brief reality TV appearance, according to Celebrity Net Worth – a whopping $4 million, to be exact. Ang gave 'Jersey Shore' her all for two seasons, one in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, and the other in Miami, Florida, but both times she left the house to go home. Angelina had left the cast for good during the third season until she rejoined for 'Jersey Shore Family Vacation.' According to In Touch, Angelina apparently raked in $3,000 an episode in season 1 and somewhere between $12,000 and $15,000 an episode for the second season. After leaving reality television, the self-proclaimed "Kim Kardashian of Staten Island" went back to work as an EMT for the FDNY.


Deena Cortese

According to Celebrity Net Worth, the now-married New Jerseyan has collected a respectable $2 million after joining the housemates during season 3 when Angelina made her second and last exit from the original series. While it has previously been stated that Deena's income was embarrassingly low compared to her Shore House companions — a meager $40K each episode — it is thought that Deena's salary grew with time, particularly due to the amount of turmoil Snooki's fellow meatball put up. Deena had been arrested by the last season, was videotaped hooking up with both girls and boys, displayed full-frontal nudity, and pushed followers to love her because of her self-assigned moniker "Blast in a Glass."


Jenni "JWOWW" Farley

According to Celebrity Net Worth, the Long Island native garnered $4 million from some of her most iconic confrontations and inebriated moments. She punched Mike in the face in Atlantic City, lost all of her lashes and nails in a violent altercation with Sammi, and cheated on her partner at the time with Pauly D. JWoww made $100,000 each episode of 'Jersey Shore' before going on to her spinoff, Snooki & JWoww. Other reality shows on which she appeared include 'Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars,' 'Disaster Date,' and 'TNA Impact!' She also published a book titled 'The Rules According to JWOWW: Shore-Tested Secrets on Landing a Mint Guy, Staying Fresh to Death, and Kicking the Competition to the Curb,' and marketed her suntanning goods brand, apparel line Filthy Couture, and design company Jenni Farley Designs, Inc.


Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino

Despite his prior relatively modest net worth of $300,000, The Situation now has a net worth of $2 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. It's no surprise, given that he's one of Jersey Shore's highest-earning cast members. Mike, who was known for his nefarious plots, clever thwarting, and, of course, his rock-hard abs, earned $2 million in a single season, owing to his $150,000 per episode profits. The Staten Island native has a book, a DVD workout series, a vitamin brand, and a clothing line, in addition to being on season 11 of 'Dancing With the Stars.' During his brief rap career, he recorded one track and took part in an abstinence public service campaign in 2010.


Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi

Because so much of 'Jersey Shore's tremendous popularity is due in part to how memorable Snooki is as a character, it's safe to say the mother of three has been raking in the cash. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Nicole is worth $4 million. The reality star immediately became a fan favorite on the MTV series, with memorable catchphrases like "meatball problems" and "WAH!" and a predilection for doing backflips at the club... It ended up practically paying off. Snooks heightened the drama of the series by being detained for public drunkenness, colliding with a police officer's car while in Italy, hooking up with both men and women, and, of course, being pregnant. Snooki earned $150,000 every episode for her intoxicated antics on JS's final two seasons, totaling an easy $2 million in a single season.


Pauly "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio

Being a well-known worldwide DJ pays! According to Celebrity Net Worth, the Rhode Island native is presently worth a whopping $20 million. Along with earning $150,000 each episode of 'Jersey Shore,' DJ Pauly D starred in his spinoff series, 'The Pauly D Project.' He garnered a devoted following not just for his love of music and DJing, but also for the immortal catchphrases he provided to 'Jersey Shore': "It's T-shirt time" and "The cabs are here!" He was also a member of the adored group MVP.


Vinny Guadagnino

Vinny accumulated a good $3 million after fans fell in love with his typical Italian-American charisma and his mom—a stay that earned him $90K each episode—as per Celebrity Net Worth. He went on to have a successful acting and comedy career, appearing on shows such as 'Guy Code,' 'The Great Food Truck Race,' '90210,' and 'The Hard Times of RJ Berger.' He also appeared in 'Vinny & Ma Eat America' and hosted 'The Show With Vinny.' After going public with his mental health and anxiety concerns, he also wrote a New York Times bestseller, 'Control the Crazy: My Plan to Stop Stressing, Avoid Drama, and Maintain Inner Cool.' Vin also published 'The Keto Guido Cookbook' in 2019 after achieving social media fame with his low-carb diet.


Ronnie Ortiz-Magro

According to Celebrity Net Worth, the remark "Rahn, stahp, you're traumatizing me" will long be connected with the Bronx native, who made a cool $3 million throughout the years appearing on MTV. Ronnie was paid $80,000 each episode at first, then $150,000, as the show's drama increased with the threat of fights, cheating scandals, and flaming anger. Ronnie has previously advertised items such as the weight-loss drug Xenadrine and appeared in the 2012 film 'The Three Stooges.' Ron has also appeared on the shows Famously Single,' 'Snooki & JWoww,' and 'Impact Wrestling.' Ariana, his daughter with ex-girlfriend Jen Harley, was born in April 2018.
