Jersey Shore's Snooki Is Worth Less Than You Think

The world was first introduced to Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi during the premiere of MTV's hit reality series, "Jersey Shore," in 2009, when she walked into the shore house and proclaimed, "Party's here!" Since then, Snooki's been a reality television staple, appearing in all six seasons of "Jersey Shore" — even when she was pregnant with her first child, Lorenzo, with now-husband Jionni LaValle (via IMDb).

After "Jersey Shore" ended in 2012, Snooki went on to produce and star in her own MTV spin-off series with her "Jersey Shore" co-star and real-life BFF, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, which was aptly titled "Snooki & JWoww," and ran for three seasons. And after a season-long hiatus from "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation," fans are excited to see their favorite "meatball" return to the small screen when the new season premieres on MTV on June 3 (via Screen Rant).

Snooki isn't just a reality TV star, though — she's actually hosted several shows throughout her career, including "How Far Is Tattoo Far?" alongside "Younger" star Nico Tortorella, and the upcoming show, "Just Tattoo of Us," which is currently in pre-production. She's also had a guest-starring role on "Supernatural" and has appeared on shows like "Celebrity Family Feud," "Ridiculousness," "Fear Factor," "The Apprentice," and "Dancing with the Stars."

Snooki is one of the highest-earning Jersey Shore cast members

Per Celebrity Net Worth, Snooki is actually one of the highest-earning "Jersey Shore" cast members, and is reportedly worth around $4 million, coming in behind Pauly D, who's earned the majority of his money from his DJing career and is worth around $20 million (via Celebrity Net Worth). The outlet reports that Snooki makes an average of $150,000 per episode of "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation," however, when she first started out on the original show, she was only making $2,200 per episode.

On top of her successful career in reality television, Snooki hosts a podcast called "It's Happening with Joey and Snooki," and also has her own baby line called MAWMA. The mom-of-three took to Instagram to reveal the exciting news in 2020, telling her followers, "I'm super excited about my future MAWMA brand coming to Buy Buy Baby soon. These are my 'Corinthia' strollers — one in zebra and one in leopard. I love the leopard because it has rose gold detail. It has a little blush and olive in the leopard. You can put your alcohol and phone in there for when you go and walk the baby" (via Cheat Sheet).

Snooki and husband Jionni LaValle also own a gorgeous home in Fordham Park, New Jersey, which cost them a cool $2.6 million (via The Sun). In October 2020, the couple put their waterfront Jersey Shore home on the market for $725,000 after Snooki quit "Family Vacation" to focus on her family.
