There's hope! A truce is in sight!

The castmates of the Jersey Shore wanted a pay raise and apparently negotiations are coming to a close.

Our favorite guidos and guidettes earned $5,000 per episode for the first season and $10,000 for the second season and they wanted even more for the third season.

The cast initially asked for $30,000 per episode and MTV is in the works with them right now to agree on some number in that area.

The shows pay negotiations are holding up production of the current 24-episode season but the new earnings will not take effect until season three.

Do U think they deserve a pay raise??

    Sure. A raise for work well done is a big morale booster, and can turn on the jets for an actor/actress, which can make for even better viewing.



  2. 2

    No, they do not deserve a raise. The situation and dj pauly d are a joke.



  3. 3

    No one is going to watch a 3rd season with them, there just wasting there money. Seriously, I am so sick of this scum that MTV constantly shoves down our throats, no wonder noone over 18 years old watches MTV anymore.



  4. 4

    They don't need a raise, for what?! They should be happy to even be working, this is the high point of their career, after Jersey Shore, they'll have nothing



  5. 5

    fuck no !!!!
    get rid of them
    there are plenty more that would be just as stupid and entertaining
    and what's with sookie's fatness ? looks like 10 lbs of sausage in a five pond casing !
    total drunk gutter fuck



  6. 6

    STOP PROMOTING THESE LOSERS



  7. 7

    Dude get the cash while you can!



  8. 8

    WTF are these whoremongers getting paid for anyway. Snooki fugly ass is the prime example of why men should use condoms. The answer is a phony as Coco's ass & the rest of this group is just plain retarded.



  9. 9

    why are they even getting paid!? wtf is wrong with this world. they are getting paid to party, please someone sign me up.



  10. 10

    yes….the viewership will bring in major advertisers



  11. 11

    Can't even believe MTV paid 5k each per episode for ORANGE GREASE.

    Re: D-bag in blue? Star tattoo on elbow?? Hairstyle? LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

    So happy I do not have cable.



  12. 12

    Umm no they are doing anything other than their daily shallow idiot things..I'd pay them to not be on tv if I had any money.



  13. 13

    I will determine whether I agree with them getting another pay raise after I watch season 2 of Jersey shore…

    by the way: LADY GAGA IS A DEVIL WORSHIPPER!!!! Search it up on Youtube. There evidence!



  14. 14

    no way!



  15. 15

    I thought you just posted a similiar post earlier today? NO THEY DO NOT NOT NOT deserve a pay raise. What for? It's a reality show, they're not acting, they wont be up for any awards or recognized for their acting abilities. They are just a bunch of losers fighting, drinking and screwing. What happened to MTV? It was a decent channel with music videos and now nothing, it's all reality..disgusting..



  16. 16

    MTV makes a tremendous amount of money off of this show. Merchandising, DVDs, Advertising, etc. MTV is notoriously cheap, just ask Mike Judge.

    Like them or not, this group of kids have created a phenomena and are cash cows for MTV. OF COURSE they deserve a huge payday!! It's bidness, son!



  17. 17

    YES. MTV is making mad money off of these kids. I say give them a raise.



  18. 18

    Hell No they don't deserve it. KIM KARDASHIAN doesn't even make that much on Keeping up with the Kardashian per episode, and she does WAAAY more than them. Let's see how well the 2nd season does before they negotiate because the whole guido thing is a fad. MTV should bring a new cast because pretty soon people will be sick of see these fake tan, money hungry, crew that's not even from Jersey.



  19. 19

    The Jersey Shore Cast claim to make more in appearances. I hate to quote Spencer Pratt but he's right. "No show = No Appearances". How about they appreciate that before Viacom steps in and shuts it down.



  20. 20

    they do not deserve no fucking raise. waste of money. how about mtv help out some poor kids with that money.



  21. 21

    MTV is a bunch of shithead morons. they paid speidi $130,000 per episode!



  22. 22

    LMAO @ MTV for indulging these has beens. Hahaha!!!!



  23. 23

    Re: Mushu Baby – youre a bit on the lady gaga thing but yes. her and many others. they sold their soul to the devil.



  24. 24

    This points out to me once again. I am a total dumb ass for finishing college as I can't get a job. Hey kids, don't let anyone tell you college is the start of your future. $200.000 in debt and I have plenty of time on my hands so I guess I'll catch this Jersey Shore thing and see how the better half do it. Power to them they're brighter than me.



  25. 25

    Hell, I've seen extras give it up in cable trailer for a SAG Voucher! Yes, they should get a raise. :-)



  26. 26

    They deserved to be dropped off on the corner they picked them up from.

    Find some new blood, maybe some more interesting and better looking people.

    Maybe with at least a few brain cells?

    Otherwise MTV may as well flush all their money down the toilet because they will not be getting the audience they thought they were getting.



  27. 27

    Hell no they dont deserve a raise! I dont give a shit if MTV is making money off them or not. That doesnt entitle these people to that much money. They were somewhat entertaining the first season but this wont last. People will get bored and MTV should get new ones if they want to continue on. It's what they did with Real World, why not this show? Snooki, Situation and the other guy are not that interesting. They pretty much showed all they could accomplish on the first season, so boot'em. They dont own that show and chances are if they recast, people would like the new people just as much and forget about these idiots. It was funny till they became "celebrities" and thought they deserved more then they are worth. Shit, I am out of work, laid off and these morons who dont work and do nothing get $10,000.00 an episode?? and want more? I know it wont happen but I wish MTV would boot them.



  28. 28

    Absolute travesty. Why/How they think they deserve all that money is beyond me. Oh yes, it must be because they're SO talented.
    :P



  29. 29

    that better be some kind of joke… those people are getting paid just to act like trash. It disgusts me. Looking at those people makes me physically sick to my stomach… they shouldn't get paid at all, let alone get a raise… sickening.



  30. 30

    I've never watched the show and these spray tanned meatheads are the stereotypical American uneducated twenty something jack-asses but if the show gets ratings in the second season then MTV should pay them some of the money they make from raising the price for commercials during the show.MTV and E don't pay the "talent" very well.

    America's attention span is short, so the iron won't be hot for long. MTV's cashing in, so the kids may as well too. They're probably going to need it.



  32. 32

    What a crock of shit!!!! There are people down near the gulf who desperately get by on the little money they have and these uppity assholes get a cool five digit raise?!?! What the fuck for?!?!? It's shit like this that pisses me off and show who we really value in this country. Fake ass storylines with fake ass people who do fake ass shit.
    So fucking unreal.



  33. 33

    So basically they're getting paid to be friends on a show that is just totally real and unscripted. Um, OK. I know a lot more interesting people you can follow around with a camera all day that wouldn't ask for that much.



  34. 34

    NONONONONONONO they should pay that money to the boys from The Buried Life… they were soooo cute and trying to actually make a difference.. so inspired no?



  35. 35

    What they need is forced sterilization (not a raise) so that we can all be sure this mistake never happens again. On the plus side, they are giving evidence against the theory of Evolution, seeing as they show regressive mental behavior….



  36. 36

    Ahhh..DON'T THINK SO!! There are no scripts for this jazz……they simply over react and think about GTL and whoring it up….that show should NOT be giving them more $ for season 3. I think $10K is more then enough for what they do…..that show doesn't involve anything but trying to look good and macking it up…..MTV is STUPID if they do. I watch Jersey Shore but to be honest…I only have 2 fav's on that show, the rest should be history!



  37. 37

    I ACTUALLY DO THINK THIS MORONS DO DESERVE MORE THAN 30,000. I MEAN FOR HAVING SOME OF THE HIGHEST RATINGS FOR MTV NOT SURE IF THE HIGHEST BUT HIGH. MTV IS MAKING MONEY OFF OF THESE LOOSERS. RATINGS FOR THE JERSEY SHORE WERE HIGHER THAN THE FAKE ASS HILLS FOR A SUPPOSED REALITY SHOW. I MEAN IF THEY GOT PAID UP TO 100,00O DOLLARS EVEN STUPID BRODY GOT 45,000 AN EPISODE!!!!! THAT GUY WHY NOT THE REST OF THE CAST OF JERSEY SHORE GET PAID 50K YOU DONT HAVE TO TRAIN THESE IDIOTS TO ACT THEY DO IT ALL OF THIER OWN PEOPLE. I MEAN RIGHT PEREZ YOU GOTTA BE WITH ME ON THIS ONE COMMENT ME BACK EMAIL ME. SO I CAN I KNOW IAM RIGHT, RIGHT?!



  38. 38

    There's only so many times we can see them get drunk and fist pump before it gets old. MTV should move on to the next trashy group to exploit because the shock value of this group is approaching its expiration date.



  39. 39

    I'm so sick of jersey shore and perez obsession with snooki!, these fools don't deserve 30k an episode? cmon now are you kidding me. MTV this is a reality show they aint acting, basically following these fools around to fight, party, have sex and talk shit thats about and cause drama, how many more season can this last…I hope they are smart and bank their money before they end up poor and bankrupt…
