Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter stated that Honey Boo Boo's family makes anywhere between $2K to $4K an episode for their hit TLC show. Then, TMZ called Honey's mom, June Shannon who said her family makes way more than that per episode. Here is what they actually make per episode. It is not the family that makes $2K-$4K per episode, but each family member. Yep. Whether the person is on the show or not that week, each of them makes that much per episode. June is the highest paid at $4K per episode and each of the kids and Sugar Bear make $2K an episode. A location fee of $2K per episode is also paid. So, if you add up the salaries of everyone and the location fee, the family makes $16K an episode for 10 episodes which is $160K for the ten episode season. When there is a next season, that number will probably at least double and should triple. Even at $500K for the season, TLC will be making money hand over fist with 3M viewers watching each week.
