The "Jersey Shore" cast will soon have enough money to spend on tanning and gym memberships for a long time to come, because they're getting a huge raise.
According to Entertainment Weekly, sources close to the pay negotiations say that cast members that form the "core group" of the show will allegedly make at least $100,000 per episode.
This raise is a huge increase from what the cast was paid for Season Two, which was only $10,000 per episode.
The actual yearly income of each cast member is even larger than the $1.3 million they will allegedly make on their hit MTV show next season. The "Jersey Shore" cast are also paid for public appearances and product endorsements. Cast members Snooki and JWoww have even written books.
The next season of "Jersey Shore" begins filming in May and is being shot on location in Italy.
