Yes, settle. After lengthy negotiations, a second season of the hit MTV series Jersey Shore is now in the pipeline as the eight cast members finally reached an agreement with the network regarding their per-episode salaries. OK! reveals that Jolie, JWoww, The Situation, Snooki, Pauly D, Ronnie, Sammi, and Vinny will all get a hefty $10,000 each per episode. It’s still a far cry, however, from the $100,000 paycheck some celebs from The Hills used to get.
Furthermore, no signing bonus was issued for the self-proclaimed guidos/guidettes.
The Situation previously assured fans that if it were up to him, Pauly, and Snooki, Jersey Shore season 2 is already a certainty.
“I speak with everybody. I don’t know if I want to go as far as to say I speak for everybody,” Mike said. “Me, Pauly and Snooks, we are very tight. We speak everyday and we make sure that we stick together and hopefully Season 2, if MTV wants it, we are going to make it happen.”
“I believe that the cast we have right now is irreplaceable and once you find that magic, it is hard to replace,” he added.
Mike, however, doesn’t rule out the possibility of one or more of the original Jersey Shore cast to do his or her own spin-off. Maybe a dating show for Snooki?
“As it comes to negotiating, we know that there will be a Season 2 and we hope MTV will have us back and I am pretty sure that is going to happen,” he added.
Jersey Shore‘s January 21 finale reeled in some 4.8 million viewers.
