What Is Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Actually Worth?

The reality TV world was truly never the same after MTV introduced us to the cast of "Jersey Shore" over a decade ago. Honestly, between the fist pumping, messy partying, clubbing, beach and boardwalk blunders, hookups, romance, and of course, fighting, who could ever forget the unprecedented drama Snooki, Sam, JWoww, Vinny, Pauly D, The Situation, Angelina, Deena, and Ronnie brought to the table?

And while the cast reportedly earned six figures per episode during the sixth season of "Jersey Shore" (via Cheat Sheet), the reality stars weren't always making a pretty penny while spending their summers in the beach house. In an interview with Vulture, Vinny Guadagnino revealed that he and Ronnie almost left the show during the first season due to a lack of funds.

"We did the first season for nothing, zero dollars, except whatever we made at the Shore Store," Guadagnino revealed. "Me and Ronnie, the first week, we told production, 'Listen, I think we have to leave. We don't have any money.' I'd just graduated college, I didn't have a job. Ronnie was doing real estate at the time, so he was making real-estate calls on the duck phone."

The success of 'Jersey Shore' is responsible for Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's impressive net worth

The Richest reports that Ortiz-Magro was worth around $1.8 million in 2012; however, per Celebrity Net Worth, the reality star is now reportedly worth around $3 million. Distractify reports that Ortiz-Magro earned a whopping $80,000 per episode while filming "Jersey Shore," thanks to the amount of drama he brought to the show. By the end of the series in 2012, he was reportedly making $100,000 per episode (via Market Watch), and is rumored to be earning $150,000 per episode on "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation."

On top of his "Jersey Shore" fame, Ronnie has appeared on other reality shows, like "Famously Single" and "Snooki & JWoww." He's also raked in some cash from promotions, appearing in a few ads for Xenadrine, a weight loss supplement, and has promoted cannabis company Gen X Biotech (via Cheat Sheet).
