    How much do they get paid?

    Hey all,
    I am not sure if this posts goes here, but i am unsure where else it would go.

    But, how much do people who are on reality shows get paid? This is not including shows there people win money, but rather people who are just on a reality show, their compensation. Has anyone heard anything?

    I can't speak for all reality shows but the big ones pay. I believe most of the contestants recieve the SAG minimum which is only a couple hundred bucks per week.

    The RW/RR challenges on MTV are about $4000 just for showing up.

    If the people participating have to be away from their normal lives for any length of time then it seems logical they'd have to receive some payment.
    All Survivor and Big Brother contestants do, for example.
    If people weren't paid for their participation you'd have a cast full of trust fund brats.

    I had heard somewhere a while back that for TAR at least, it's about $1k per "show week" until eliminated.

    Oh no, don't give them any ideas, fluff!! Then we'd be stuck with network slots full of The Simple Life reruns!
