What we know is, since season 4, Pauly D has been making $100,000 for each of the 12 episodes, on top of a $400,000 signing bonus. Pauly D makes $1.6 million to live in a dirty shore house, where he gets wasted, and gets laid- all for fun on TV.
For Jersey Shore’s upcoming season 6, Pauly D is said to be upping his earnings to $175,000 for each of 12 episodes! We don’t know how much he’ll get to ‘sign’ this time, but we’re sure that will be more than $400,000.
We found this now public information out, because Pauly is being sued by his former talent agency ICM (International Creative Management), who claims that Pauly has not paid them commission that they are owed.
