When Jersey Shore debuted on MTV way back in 2009, Nicole Polizzi, a.k.a. Snooki, was the breakout star. Snooki’s love of pickles, partying, and poofs made her a fan fave instantly. Jersey Shore also made her a lot of cash.
She and her castmates had humble beginnings working at a T-shirt shop in Seaside Heights. But now, thanks to her reality TV stardom, Snooki is loaded. (Perhaps she’s been stashing her cash in her signature poof all along…) Snooki has branched out into acting, spinoff shows, and many other lucrative ventures to boost her bank account.
So, what exactly is Snooki’s net worth these days? Here’s everything you need to know:
Snooki cashed in on Jersey Shore.
When she first started on the reality series, Snooki made around $2,200 each episode, per CelebrityNetWorth. She and her cast mates got raises as their ratings skyrocketed (props, y’all). By the final season, Snooki’s salary was up to $150,000 per episode, according to Radar Online. She also earned a bonus at the beginning and end of the season, which adds up to a cool $2.55 million for the season. (Btw, her salary matched what Pauly D and The Situation earned.)
Snooki starred in a spinoff series.
She and Jenni Farley, a.k.a. JWoww, teamed up for Snooki & JWoww, which aired in 2012 and 2013. Snooki also earned producing credits for the series, though her exact earnings weren’t revealed.

Snooki is raising her kids in a multimillion-dollar home in Morris County, New Jersey.
She bought a $2.6 million home in Florham Park, New Jersey in January 2015, per NJ.com. This is actually her second home in the area. She and her husband, Jionni LaValle, had a custom home built.
Snooki is a New York Times best-selling author.
Herbook, A Shore Thing, was published in January 2011, but debuted to lackluster sales numbers, according to Hollywood Reporter. It sold less than 9,000 copies in the first month. Sales picked up after that earning her a spot on the New York Times best-seller list. THR estimates she earned around $100,000 for telling her tale. Snooki also penned Baby Bumps about her journey from party girl to motherhood.
Her party girl days faded, but her love of pickles endures. Watch Snooki taste-test tons of pickle-flavored snacks.
Snooki reunited with the cast for Jersey Shore Family Vacation.
The gang got all back together again, and plenty of Shorenanigans ensued. What happens at the shore doesn’t stay at the shore (obvs). That said, their salaries remain under wraps.

The Snooki Shop allows fans to dress just like the reality star.
Snooki has launched clothing lines, including Snooki Love and Lovanna. Now, she has a brick-and-mortar boutique (in New Jersey, of course) and an e-commerce site dedicated to all her duds. There are Snookinis, sequin tops, dresses, graphic tees, and much more bolstering her bank account.
If you do the math, Snooki’s net worth adds up to a cool $4 million, per CelebrityNetWorth. (The only Jersey Shore alum who’s worth more is Pauly D at $20 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth.)
