$18 MILLION (yes, that's million) for a one-year gig. (highest paid judge yet on a singing competition show) Personally, I've never been a fan, however, I enjoy her spouse on America's Got Talent. http://mariahcarey.com/
A paltry $8 MILLION (in comparison to Mariah), for her participation
No personal website link, but she is on FB, Twitter, and My Space
Only $4 MILLION for the country singer. He is one of the lowest paid in the show's 12-year history. Ironically, I would value his opinions over either of the female judges.
As judge on the show since 2002, it is unknown exactly how much he is pulling in by now. From what I've read it's about $50 MILLION!!
$15 MILLION as host of the show. http://ryanseacrest.com/
Honey Boo Boo
According to all the crapola I've been scanning on line about this show, initially they were reaping between $5-7 THOUSAND per episode (everything factored in) and now there's rumors the family will soon be raking in (again, making - not earning) somewhere in the neighborhood of $15-20 THOUSAND per episode!
I don't see a website link, and don't want to spend any time on something I'm not the least bit interested in, however, I wanted to include THEIR pay scale, in comparison to the "pretty people" (or someone thinks they are). It used to be said that "pretty people" get further in life (economically and success), if they are "pretty".
Don't quote me . . . these "cold, hard facts" are from a variety of websites but the amounts seem to coincide across the board, pretty much. I would trade any one of them straight across for my wage, and dare them to live on it, even for a short time!! What a spoiled lot they are . . . even the Honey Boo Boo family is living 'way high on the hog' (hehe), in comparison, although I'm sure they're all in 'hog heaven' with what they are getting!
