“Jersey Shore” aired from 2009 to 2012, but it launched the housemate stars to uber-fame and huge fortunes.
As “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” keeps stars like Pauly D and Snooki in our lives a bit longer, the “Jersey Shore” cast have made immense amounts of money.
Here is the estimated net worth of all the “Jersey Shore” cast members, ranked.
Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino — Net Worth: $300,000
At the peak of his “Jersey Shore” fame, The Situation was worth about $10 million, and hauling in $150k per episode, which made sense since he was one of the most popular cast members. But somehow he failed to pay taxes on about $9 million of that wealth, which along with some poor investments, has left him with little of his fortune.
Deena Cortese — Net Worth: $2 million
Deena auditioned for season 1 of the show along with her good buddy Snooki, but didn’t actually make it on until season 3. She still walked away with a mill, though. She also has an online store that sells baby clothes, aprons, and more.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro — Net Worth: $3 million
Ronnie has made some money off ads for Xenadrine, a weight loss supplement, as well as roles on “Famously Single” in 2017 and “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.” He also has interest in a few CBD brands.
Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola — Net Worth: $4 million
You might not know it by her antics on “Jersey Shore,” but Sammi is quite a business magnate, with several businesses, including online and brick-and-mortar stores, to her name and appearances on a range of other TV shows.
Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley — Net Worth: $4 million
Along with the $100k she was making per episode on “Jersey Shore,” Jwoww has ventured into a ton of different businesses, from graphic design to clothing to other TV shows and even a movie gig in “Mint.” She also starred in spin-offs “Snooki & Jwoww” and “Snooki & Jwoww: Moms with Attitude.”
Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi - Net Worth: $4 million
Snooki matches JWoww for net worth, which makes sense considering they have appeared in many of the same spin-off ventures. But she has also appeared on “Dancing With the Stars” and written three novels -- which, wow. She also gets a huge chunk of her income from public appearances and her boutiques, "Snooki Shop," along with her wine brand "Messy Mawma Wines."
Vinny Guadagnino — Net Worth: $5 million
Vinny might not have the most dough of the “Jersey Shore” cast, but he has appeared in a bunch of shows at this point, including “The Show with Vinny,” “90210,” “Vinny & Ma Eat America,” “The Great Food Truck Race,” and “The Hard Times of RJ Berger." He also does public appearances, hosted "Chippendales" in Vegas, has clothing brands, and wrote self-help and diet books.
Pauly ‘DJ Pauly D’ DelVecchio - Net Worth: $20 million
It’s not even close. Pauly D has earned way more money than any of his co-stars, thanks in part to his DJing gig at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. He was the first housemate to get his own spin-off in 2012, “The Pauly D Project,” and he has appeared in other spin-offs as well.
