Here’s How Much the ‘Jersey Shore’ Cast Is WorthDesiree Navarro - Getty Images

Remember back in 2009 when your routine consisted of wondering whether you should get side bangs, “poking” your friends on Facebook, and watching Jersey Shore? Yeah, well now everyone on that show is filthy rich (and getting richer thanks to the new season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation), and frankly GOOD FOR THEM! Of course, like any reality TV star, the cast of Jersey Shore learned early on that the path to wealth and success isn’t paved with tanning lotion and monokinis exclusively, so they’ve all been hustling since their glory days on MTV.

Like, somehow Pauly D has managed to pull off an actual career as a DJ?!?! Not to mention, he’s starred in a veritable cornucopia of spin-off shows and become an ambassador for SummerSlam. Meanwhile, Snooki has written literally a million books—although not sure they impacted her net worth since they didn’t sell very well. Vinny starred in a show called Double Shot at Love with Pauly D, and JWoww’s busy being an influencer with nearly 8 million followers on Instagram. And, um, our bud Mr. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is still coming down from pleading guilty to tax evasion…which, yeah…had a not-so-great impact on his overall net worth. But even Mike is out here making money thanks to a podcast, a merch line, and some workout supplements.

In other words, pretty much everyone on Jersey Shore is getting richer by the day, and the time has come for Cosmo’s elite team of accountants (aka me and my iPhone calculator) to round up and report the net worth of every Jersey Shore cast member. Prepare to feel an incredible combination of amazed, baffled, and jealous.

Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio Jr.: $20 Million

Pauly D is the richest cast member from Jersey Shore by far. Celebrity Net Worth estimates he was earning $150K per episode of the show and is worth a whopping $20 million—in part thanks to his DJ career. According to a Forbes article from 2012, Pauly D takes home an average of $40,000 per set, and he’s performed at clubs, private parties, and even opened for Britney Spears. Aside from that, he’s launched clothing and (naturally) tanning lotion lines and also appeared on reality shows like The Pauly D Project, Famously Single, and Double Shot at Love.

Vinny Guadagnino: $5 Million

Vinny’s net worth is an impressive $5 million, according to good ol’ Celebrity Net Worth—up from $3 million in 2020. Makes sense, because he’s been busy! Vinny joined the cast of Jersey Shore: Family Reunion, did a monthlong residency as a Chippendales guest host in Las Vegas, and was even on Double Shot at Love with Pauly D.

Meanwhile, Radar Online reports he made $90,000 per episode by the end of Jersey Shore.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi: $4 Million

Snooki is the next richest member of the cast, and although her net worth of $4 million is certainly impressive, it’s a far cry from Pauly D’s pile of money. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Snooki started Jersey Shore making $2,200 per episode, then made $30,000 an episode for the second season, and by the final season, she was earning $150,000 per episode—just like Pauly D.

Snooki also starred in the spin-off reality show Snooki & JWoww, competed on The New Celebrity Apprentice, and most recently starred in Celebrity Family Feud. Nowadays, she runs her own store called—what else?—the Snooki Shop, which has locations in New York and New Jersey.

Jenni “JWoww” Farley: $4 Million

JWoww is just as much of a financial powerhouse as her BFF Snooki, with an estimated net worth of $4 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Radar Online reports that JWoww was making around $100,000 per episode by the end of Jersey Shore and went on to star in Snooki & JWoww, Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, Young Americans, and Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, which is still on. She also ~influences~ for brands like Fashion Nova.

Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola: $4 Million

Sammi may not have appeared on the earlier seasons of Jersey Shore Family Vacation along with the rest of the cast, but she’s still doing just fine financially. Celebrity Net Worth estimates she’s got $4 million to her name, and Radar Online claims she made $80,000 an episode filming Jersey Shore.

Nowadays, Sammi runs an online fashion boutique, Sweetheart Styles, a brick-and-mortar shop in NJ itself, and has developed several different fragrances. Because who wouldn’t want to smell like the shore, amirite?

Angelina Pivarnick: $4 Million

Despite appearing on only the first two seasons of Jersey Shore, Angelina can definitely upgrade her luggage from trash bags ’cause Celebrity Net Worth estimates she’s worth $4 million.

Since the show, Angelina’s gotten involved with TNA Wrestling, appeared on Couples Therapy with her boyfriend, and joined the cast of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro: $3 Million

Ronnie is worth an estimated $3 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Meanwhile, Radar Online reports that he made about $80,000 an episode by the end of Jersey Shore—which is not too shabby! Since then, Ronnie’s appeared on Famously Single, starred in several Xenadrine ads, and done some cameo work, and he appears to have a CBD brand.

Deena Cortese: $2 Million

Deena appeared only on later seasons of Jersey Shore, but she’s still reaping the financial benefits. Celebrity Net Worth estimates she’s worth a cool $2 million, and Radar Online reports she made around $40,000 per episode. I’d take it.

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino: $300,000

Although he’s one of the show’s breakout stars, The Situation’s, well, situation is a bit more complicated. He earned $150,000 an episode on Jersey Shore, appeared on Dancing With the Stars and Celebrity Big Brother, wrote several books, and had several other side businesses. But these days, Celebrity Net Worth reports that The Situation’s net worth is estimated at only $300,000 thanks to drama with his taxes. Say it with me: Yikes.
