While it’s pretty much certain that most Normans sign up for reality TV shows for the glory (read: Instagram followers) I’m sure another huge incentive is the dosh they get. , which begs the question: How much do their competitors pay for reality TV shows?
We scoured all the rumors and receipts to see what each show would allegedly pay their cast to make a fool of themselves on national television.
Keep in mind that this is based on industry insider tea and gossip reports, not actual facts, so sprinkle each spec of information with a grain of salt, ploise.
Also, there are cases where applicants have gone rogue and spilled their salaries on social media and in spicy interviews, but remember that the payouts vary from person to person, depending on their skill set. in terms of negotiation and their star power, etc.
The Bachelor (competitors)
The absolute bottom of the barrel here is The single person who apparently pay their competition less than $ 100 a day, which will buy you everything in this economy.
An anonymous ex-competitor told News Corp that “you don’t get a salary as such, you get a weekly spending allowance of less than $ 100 per day. It is below the minimum wage.
“It’s ridiculous what you get paid. A lot of the girls were thrilled to have that amount per week, but I was like ‘are you serious I wouldn’t get out of bed for that’, ”they said.
This year has been a slight acceleration, however, as according to the So dramatic! podcast, the girls were offered an additional $ 5,000 if they handed over their IG passwords and left no spoilers until a specified date.
Even with this bonus, they are still the worst of the bunch. Will I accept this rose? Yeah, no.
Coming in second is another trashfire dating show, MAFS.
In a spicy Q&A on Instagram, the former candidate Telv williams revealed that “you get paid $ 150 a day, tax free.” This is crap, this is crap. It’s all out of your fucking back.
Meanwhile on the MAFS meeting, payments ranged from $ 3,000 for the two-day shoot (that idiot Nasser Sultan accepted no doubt because he was so desperate to get back to TV) at $ 40,000 (!!!) that Davina Rankin was offered but turned down because she didn’t want it in a fucking bar, according to the So dramatic! Podcast.
Baccalaureate In Paradise
The next step is Baccalaureate In Paradise whose competitors, according to So dramatic! host Megan Pustetto, “are paid $ 500 per day.”
“Some competitors were able to negotiate and get $ 1,000 a day… and then people like Keira [Maguire] may demand more, ”she said in a previous episode.
“I’ve heard that Keira’s fees are close to $ 50,000, but honestly this is just a rumor and not confirmed as contract negotiations are very confidential,” she said. asserted.
The host also alleged that the garbage set the former couple on fire Richie strahan and Alex Nation were paid $ 4,000 per day for their appearance on the Bachie spinoff show last year.
“A contestant offered to do the show for free,” Megan added of last year’s season, keeping the individual’s name a secret and I would pay A LOT of money to find out who it was.
The Celebrity apprentice the salaries were leaked to New Idea yesterday and I love it when it happens. The goss rag claims that “the tension has increased on the set” when it was said that the designer Camille Frank was “the lowest paid” of all the players.
I don’t know how much it is, but for the context, The Biggest Loser fitness queen Michelle Bridges and radio guy Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli scored $ 50,000 each – the highest salaries in the cast.
during this time The Lisa of Véronique and Jess origliasso would have won $ 60,000 combined.
And finally, Australian Idol type Anthony callea, actor Ross Noble and The block judge Shaynna blaze reportedly earned $ 30,000 each for their stint in the series.
Keep in mind, however, that a large chunk of the proceeds goes to charity, so they were aware that they would earn a little less for a good cause.
Next up is some tough shit reality show SAS Australia who, according to the Daily Mail, feed their celebrity guests between $ 30,000 and $ 100,000 throughout their tenure on the show.
The post estimated that some stars are making their way to the higher end of that range due to the demands, while others are earning much less.
Meanwhile, according to New Idea, Schapelle corby almost doubled that, compared to the rest of the cast. Apparently she’s sitting at $ 80,000- $ 100,000, which is pretty darn chic, especially since, let’s face it, her celebrity status was earned through less conventional means.
The baccalaureate (main guys)
The Main Guys and Ladies of the Dating Reality TV Franchise The single person obvs scores more dough than the contestants and returning cast members on its spinoff show, Bachelor In Paradise.
For example, Matty J, who competed on Georgia Love’s season of The bachelorette, would have pocketed $ 200,000 for his concert on The single person.
The Bachelorette (principal girls)
The third highest paid reality TV show would be The bachelorette, as Courier Mail from Brisbane claims that Australian music royalty Sophie monk scored $ 300,000 for his season.
Network Ten declined to comment on salary rumors (which are still just rumors at this point), but an “industry insider” told the Courier that “Sophie would earn a lot more (than previous singles and singles ) because its management would have negotiated well. “
Take this bread, sister.
Big Brother VIP
As if it wasn’t maddening enough that foreign celebrities were allowed into the country during a pandemic, wait and see how much they would have been paid for Big Brother VIP.
A sneaky insider told New Idea that Caitlyn jenner raised $ 500,000 for his brief stint on the show, while MAFS Star Jessika Power was fined a meager sum of $ 20,000 (shouting!).
Thomas markle jr, who refuses to leave the country, has also struck a triple-digit deal.
As for Katie hopkins, she was supposed to get $ 200,000, but after making herself an absolute tool in hotel quarantine and being kicked out of the country, she won’t see any more bullshit.
An anonymous senior Channel Seven executive told the Sydney Morning Herald that Hopkins “wouldn’t get a dime more” than the expenses she incurred to travel here, such as flight and hotel costs. Holy shit, Katie.
The masked singer (judges)
And come to numero uno is a competitive reality TV show The masked singer whose judges were paid fat, fat, BIG.
It was first said that the radio ledge Jackie O was the highest paid of the judges, sitting at $ 1 million, but an insider later told New Idea that these rumors were BS and that “Dannii [Minogue] would switch if it were true.
Apparently, Dannii Minogue earned the highest salary of the four judges and has an absolutely insane budget of $ 500,000. According to the source, she received the “Channel 10 special treatment” with first class flights for her and her son, so they could travel from LA to Australia before filming began. Wow.
As for Jackie O’s actual salary, she is said to earn on par with her former companion ‘Hughesy’. Both are supposed to be over $ 250,000 each. Newcomer Urzila carlson is said to earn $ 100,000 for the season.
