“Teen Mom” stars Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell, Leah Messer, Chelsea Houska, Jenelle Evans, and Kailyn Lowry’s salaries have been revealed, Teen Mom News reported on Mar. 8.
According to the report, The ladies of “Teen Mom” make an average of $60-$65K per season, which usually consists of about twelve episodes.
While Maci, Farrah, Amber, and Catelynn have ended their on “Teen Mom” the “Teen Mom 2” girls are still going strong in the ratings, and rumors of a fifth season are flying.
Meanwhile, the “Teen Mom 3” newbies, Mackenzie Douthit, Katie Yeager, Alex Sekella, and Brianna DeJesus are about to have their debut on MTV.
It seems that “Teen Mom” mom girls are making a decent living by sharing their struggles on television. However, they don’t make near as much as the cast of “Jersey Shore” used to bank, with Snooki pulling in $30K per episode, or the former “Hills” gang, as Kristin Cavallari used to make $90-$100K per episode.
Do you think the “Teen Mom” stars are under paid for their reality TV star status?
