'Jersey Shore' Cast -- All for One, One for All

1/31/2010 1:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jersey ShoreThe "Jersey Shore" cast will all be paid the same for season 2 of the MTV show, sources connected with the negotiations tell TMZ.

We're told it was important the producers wanted to avoid infighting among the cast ... at least on the subject of money -- so Pauly D, The Situation, Snooki and the gang will all be paid exactly the same.

As we first reported, the cast negotiated their deals like the cast of "Friends" -- either they all got paid the same ... or nobody got paid.

We already posted that Vinnie took the $10,000 per episode offer, so we're assuming the price was right for the rest of the cast as well.

A rep for MTV had no comment.

Isn't the entire point of the show to have infighting among the cast?

Who cares!! These crazy kids are not doing anything for me, not paying my bills. I'm not going to make these people more rich watching them act like fools on TV. I would rather support those who DESERVE the money.

The wrong people are getting paid a lot of money. I want to see this kind of money go to people who are actually doing things that makes this world a safe and better place...police men and women, doctors/nurses, teachers, firemen....

each member of the cast was paid differently. deals have been made behind closed doors. nothing is real. there is the illusion, the idea that the cast gets paid the same so the entire cast is happy. the cast members making more money are signed to confidentiality agreements and smile thinking of their little money secret. it's the nbc deal with conan, part of the deal was conan gets a chance with justice TMZ never reported that... it was part of the settlement.

Gee... and we all wonder why the cable companies charge so much to the working class people.
Why do we glorify "celebrities" and have them earn so much money.

Nick Cage.... I'm GLAD YOUR BROKE. Over indulgent lavish lifestyle living off the high priced movie tickets at the theatre.

C'mon- the show is very entertaining. Their individual personalities and their lingo is absolute fresh and better than many of these other reality shows- especailly VH1's "Who's the next douche or douchette looking for love"- it is all the same- just a different reality skillet looking for love. With the same concept same everything- BORING already! Jersy Shore reminds people what it was like- being in your 20's- beaching, partying carefree- having a good time. Genuine words coming out of their mouths pieces- which are hilarious. Give them a break- it is a feel good show. Everyone had fun at that age- let them have more money. It is upbeat- you want to keep watching. Who doesn't like some comedy. Better than watching the angered Real World/Road Rules Challenge- in my opinion filled with deception and backstabbing- and hey they get a chance to make some money- so should Jersy Shore cast! If you don't like it turn it off!
