Life & Style finally uncovered how much exactly each of the participants are being paid for their appearances on the show. Each person is paid between $60,000 to $65,000 for the season. Considering they are not very long seasons that is some really good money. In their story, they quote a source who says that Gary and Amber would love to stop filming the show (uh huh), but that the money is just too good to pass up. Combine that money with the money some of the moms make at promotional appearances and they are doing very well for themselves without actually having to do any work. I sure hope they are saving it. The article does not say if any money is being paid to the babies on the show, but I certainly hope they are getting something because I doubt any of these people are saving very much.
I also have noticed that no one is really asking for a raise. Unlike Jersey Shore I think it would be pretty easy to replace these people especially with a new season of 16 & Pregnant on the air.
