Life just got a lot more green for the guidos and guidettes of everyone's favorite Jersey Shore. Entertainment Weekly isreporting that the main members of the cast will be paid $100,000 per episode this coming season -- giving the reality stars enough money to buy their own personal in-house tanning salons, as well as a lifetime supply of hair spray and other cosmetic essentials.
Compared to their Season 2 wages, this year's salary bump is enormous. Last year they were only getting $10,000 per episode on MTV's hit show. Not that the cast was struggling financially. Members of the house cashed in on lucrative endorsement deals, as well as public speaking offers -- Nicole "Snooki" Polozzi got paid $32,000 to speakat Rutgers University in New Jersey just last month.
Season 3 of Jersey Shore will begin filming in May and is being shot on location in Italy... as if anyone would ever want to be paid a million dollars to live and party in Europe.
