Teen Mom 2 – Who Makes More? – You Might be Surprised.
According to them, the highest paid Teen Mom 2 star is Leah Messer, coming in at $50,000. More than likely because she has had the most “real problems” as far as legitimate ratings go. She had twins, she is the mother of a special needs child, she got married, she got divorced, and we now know that she’s getting married again and having another baby. That’s a pretty way to get high ratings.
Next on the list is Chelsea Houska, reportedly coming in at $30,000. Almost HALF of what Leah makes. I can see this. I think that a lot of young mothers can relate to Chelsea and her addictive relationship with her child’s father. On top of that, Chelsea is very likable and pretty. She has a strong sense of family, is very obviously concerned with being a good mother, and seems to have great friends. I think she gives girls hope.
Third is Kail, who is said to come in at $25,000. Kail has a lot of drama, whether it’s with her son’s father, who’s he’s dating, who she’s dating, her mother, her father, etc. I think it’s probably good for people being curious, but maybe a little more than most can relate to.
Lastly….Jenelle…who they say comes in at a whopping $10,000. If I had to give my opinion on why, it would be because people are sick of her making dumber and dumber decisions. You can only watch a train wreck for so long before you get desensitized to it. I think people either watch it because they cannot believe what she does is legitimate, or they have stopped watching it because they’re tired of watching her dig herself further and further into…..whatever you want to call her lifestyle.
I think people assumed they make MUCH more than they do. $50,000 is the max and that certainly isn’t THAT much money. $30,000 and below is definitely not a lot of money. It’s interesting to see how much less they make than the Season 1 girls.
Obviously everyone’s always like “omgaaa they never struggle with bills” and “how can they afford nice cars and to get their hair and nails done? That’s not real life!” Obviously they’re not rolling in money like leaves….
