How Much Is ‘Teen Mom’ Farrah Abraham Being Paid for ‘Ex On The Beach’?
You knew her first for being a teenaged mother on 16 and Pregnant and you know her now for the drama she was a part of on Teen Mom OG. Though she’s no longer part of the Teen Mom franchise, Farrah Abraham is still making headlines left and right. From her celebrity boxing match that she dropped out of to her many business ventures and also her feuds with other famous folks, the world can’t get enough of Farrah. And now, she’s set to grace our TVs once again — but this time, it’s on MTV’s Ex On The Beach.
So, how much is Farrah getting paid to do this show? And how does it compare to her Teen Mom salary? Find out here.
Farrah is appearing with her ex, Simon, on Ex On The Beach
It seems Farrah is slated to make a TV comeback with her appearance on Season 2 of Ex On The Beach. Originally a British production, the show brings cast members from reality TV shows and allows them to enjoy a beautiful vacation — with their ex. The reality stars then have to decide if they want to rekindle old flames or move on with someone new on the beach.
MTV explains the cast are from a multitude of different reality shows, including Big Brother, Bad Girls Club, The Bachelorette, and Survivor. As for Farrah, she’ll be joined on the beach by ex Simon Saran who was featured on Teen Mom for a few episodes. Their relationship seemingly didn’t end well (nor did it look healthy while the show was airing), and many assumed he had moved on from Farrah. Alas, it seems he’ll be on the beach looking for love, too.
How much is she being paid for the show?
Farrah stands as one of the highest earners who’s ever appeared on Teen Mom — and it looks like her cash flow has no signs of stopping thanks to her new salary from Ex On The Beach. According to The Blast, sources claim Farrah will be paid $300,000 for her participation. And, considering the entire taping of the show only took 11 days, that’s a serious payout averaging over $27,000 per day.
As for who helped Farrah secure this sweet deal, she can thank her new manager, David Weintraub. And though we never thought we’d see Farrah back on MTV again, we’re guessing she’s talked things out with the network to allow her back after her firing from Teen Mom.
How much was she paid for Teen Mom?
Most of the moms from Teen Mom OG had been a part of the show for years — and they had a chance to make quite a bit of money thanks to the network. As for how much Farrah made from the show before her dismissal, it was reportedly around $30,000 per episode. She was in over 60 episodes, too, making Teen Mom her most worthy TV investment yet.
While her payout for Ex On The Beach may be slightly less, she’s still doing incredibly well for herself. The other Teen Mom stars reportedly make about $25,000 per episode, so her new MTV venture may mean she’s making more than her previous co-stars are raking in. And it doesn’t seem like Farrah is hurting for money currently, either, with or without the help of MTV. Her total net worth stands around $3-6 million.
