Pauly D: $20 Million Net Worth
Oh yeah, paycheck, yeah. It’s no surprise that Pauly D is the richest of the Jersey Shore cast with all he has going on. He currently resides in Las Vegas where he has a DJ residency and turns Drais Nightclub into an explosive party on a regular basis. He also DJs at Atlantic City’s Harrah’s Pool After Dark, Chicago’s Prysm Nightclub, and Get Wet Ultra Pool in the Poconos.
Earlier this year, he hosted his own dating show alongside co-star Vinny Guadagnino called Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny. Spoiler alert: He left without finding love.
“I’ve been blessed to be as busy as I am. And I love to be busy because when I’m not, I get into trouble,” he said.
If you’re an avid MTV watcher, you may have spotted the guidette hosting How Far Is Tattoo Far? alongside Nico Tortorella. But even though the mother-of-three is worth a whopping $4 million, she’s still not the richest Jersey Shore star of the bunch.
It pays to be a Keto Guido. After bringing popularity to the Ketogenic diet, the reality star penned his own cookbook, The Keto Guido Cookbook: Delicious Recipes to Get Healthy and Look Great — one of the bestselling weight loss books on Amazon. He also appeared alongside co-star Pauly D on his own dating show, Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny, performed in Las Vegas as a Chippendales dancer, and has his own clothing line filled with witty T-shirts.

Angelina Pivarnick: $2 Million Net Worth
Um, hello? Angelina only recently stepped back into the spotlight when Sammi Sweetheart left an opening on Jersey Shore Family Vacation. Now that Ang has made her way back into the MTV family, she’s doing everything in her power to stay there. Currently, she has her own line of eyelashes and is also an ambassador for Boom Bod weight loss drinks.

Deena Cortese: $1 Million Net Worth
Though the self-proclaimed meatball is a hit on the reality series, she doesn’t have too much involvement in many side projects outside of the show. Still, she can sit back and be a millionaire while raising her son, CJ, with husband Chris Buckner as the MTV checks keep rolling in!

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino: $300,000 Net Worth
Now this is a situation. Due to some legal trouble, Mike’s net worth fell from $10 million to $300,000. But with his jail time behind him, he’s back on his feet — acting as a recovery mentor at Hope’s Horizon, an advocate for Banyan Treatment Centers, and running his own clothing line, The Sitch Store. Learn from Mike’s mistakes: pay your taxes.
All that GTL has certainly paid off for the cast of Jersey Shore. The MTV stars, who have now graduated to the series' reboot, Jersey Shore Family Vacation, are still cashing in on their reality TV fame more than a decade after first gracing our television screens.
But that's not to say they're not earning serious dough outside of television. The stars — including Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino — all have impressive net worths thanks to appearances, books, clothing lines, makeup products, tanning lotion, you name it. But which self-proclaimed guido is the richest of them all?
