Who Is The Richest Jersey Shore Cast Member?

Which Jersey Shore cast member changes the definition of “GTL” from “gym, tan, laundry,” to “gym, tan… liquid assets”?

Back in 2009, a little MTV reality show swept the nation faster than Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola could say “Rahn stahp!” Six seasons and multiple spin-offs later — including the ongoing Jersey Shore: Family Vacation — and Jersey Shore is a pop culture staple. And so are its endlessly quotable (and hair-gelled) cast of characters, like Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Vinny Guadagnino, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, DJ Pauly D. But which star has fist-bumped their way not only to lasting fame, but spray-tanned success?

From Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel to RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Trixie Mattel who’s (death)dropped multiple albums and a Netflix documentary  some figures recognize that being a reality star is an opportunity. It’s a chance to take that lightning in a bottle (sudden notoriety, T-shirt-worthy catchphrases, and an influx of, say, Instagram followers) and turn it into an all-out Coca-Cola factory. In simpler terms: make your 15 minutes matter financially. And just because not every Jersey Shore cast member is crushing it cash-wise (Mike “The Situation” has had some financial… “situations”) doesn’t mean some aren’t reveling in the big bucks. 

Snooki, JWOWW, Deena, The Situation, Ronnie, Vinny, or Paul: Here’s the richest Jersey Shore cast member of them all. 

Pauly D has outdone his Jersey Shore cast mates

So who is the richest Jersey Shore cast member? All praise DJ Pauly D! 

While other cast mates have done well for themselves Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWOWW” Farley each have a net worth of $4 million, per Celebrity Net Worth Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio is miles ahead of the pack. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the likable spike-haired DJ is worth $20 million today. 

How did he do it? The reality star more enterprising than you may have thought. In addition to earning $150,000 per episode by the last season of Jersey Shore, per Life and Style, he has gone on to appear in spin-off shows, like Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny and The Pauly D Project. But that’s not all. According to the magazine, Pauly D has become an “internationally-known” DJ, becoming the “exclusive DJ” for the Palms Casino Resort pool in Vegas (who wouldn’t enjoy him DJ-ing a pool party?). He’s also signed with 50 Cent’s label, G-Note Records, per Billboard, and opened for Britney Spears on tour in 2011 (via The Hollywood Reporter). We love that!

“I’m the guy responsible for making these people have a good time,” he told Dancing Astronaut about being a DJ.“I believe it [DJ-ing] has to be a personality as well. It’s not just honed in on a turntable and a laptop. You have… [to] give them an experience.” 

Well, Pauly D is certainly experiencing wealth!
