Teen Mom” star Javi Marroquin may just have joined the show last season when he met Kailyn and got married to her before he headed off for the air force training school, but it appears that many people think that he is making big money filming the show next to his wife. There have been rumors of these girls making a ton of money filming for MTV, because the show is so successful. However, Javi wishes he was making as much as reported. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Feb. 21, “Teen Mom” star Javi Marroquin is now speaking out on his supposed paycheck.

One can imagine that Kailyn, Jenelle Evans, Chelsea Houska and Leah Calvert cannot reveal how much they are making because they are under contract. However, it has been criticized that they are showing their struggles as teen mothers without actually having that financial stress. Some reports claim that the girls have made about $60-$100K per year. Some even believe that Kailyn is making $30K per episode, which seems like a lot of money.

However, Javi doesn’t believe it is that much. “30k?! In my dreams!” he tweeted after learning what people were saying about his income. They are working hard and establishing careers on the side. Kailyn has even thought about going back to school.

What do you think of their income?
