'Jersey Shore' Cast Starting to Fold

1/28/2010 12:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Two of the cast members of "Jersey Shore" have agreed to MTV's offer of $10,000 an episode, but the others are still holding out ... sources connected to the negotiations tell TMZ.

Jeresy shore contract negotiations
Ronnie and J-WOWW have accepted MTV's offer. A well-placed MTV source tells TMZ the network is drawing a hard line at the close of business tomorrow -- the rest of the cast members must either accept the offer or MTV replaces them.

Earlier in the week we told you MTV's original deadline was Monday night -- but the network continued negotiations and now they say it's do or die.

These people deserve at leats $50K-$100K per episode!

They're much more entertaining than Conan, Leno or Letterman.

The last few episodes sucked. Bring in a new cast, the old cast is stale and full of themselves already. Change the cast every year like Real World.

$10,000 per episode is petty cash. If they would have all held out, MTV would have paid them more. Even if MTV isn't bluffing and they decide to bring in a new cast, it would more than likel not have the same success. Then later on, this cast could turn the tables on MTV to pay them more to come back. But we are talking about a group of idiots.

Someone needs to pay these people to GET OFF THE TELEVISION! They suck. Really...who ares about a bunch of stuck up brats from New Jersey (no less)? What amazes me is that they think they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. Get a life!

That guy wearing the plastic hat, Pauly, probably won't be back on the show because according to him he's making $5000 a week DJ in RI. And he's on his way to making between $10,000 and $25,000 per night playing DJ around the country.

That's a typo, these worthless piece of Pepperoni agreed $10/episode. Sounds more like it.

Those turds should be happy with anything they're offered. Every one of them is dumb as a used hammer.
