The Sitch takes in roughly $60,000 an episode -- after bonus incentives, a source tells HR. Dude is also expected to rake in $1 million this year in appearance fees.

And there's more -- Situation is also getting paid for "developing" several products -- including an ab-centric workout video and a line of chewable supplements.

The HR also claims Sitch scored a six-figure deal to promote a line of vodka -- plus he'll get partial ownership in the company. He's also released a rap song on iTunes and has signed endorsement deals with Vitamin Water, Reebok and a clothing company.

And get this -- The Situation got a six-figure advance on his autobiography. The book on tape will probably be fascinating.

Wow so many haters out there. This guy didn't steal his earnings - he simply applied for a reality show, the show became a hit, and he is capitalizing on the show's success. So what's so wrong with that? It's regular everyday people who watch the show and like him who buy the products he endorses. Let's not forget when he started the 1st season he only made a $1000 an episode. These days one has to be smart about finances and capitalizing on what they have to work with b/c it can end at anytime. Good for him for making smart choices now about money. Everyone takes the show too seriously- if you dont like it, just dont watch. And for all the haters who comment, clearly you took the time out to write something, whether good or bad, so you are only confirming what we already know, The Situation is a hit!
