A new report on the 90 Day Fiance cast salaries is rather shocking when you look at what other reality shows are paying their cast members. Across the social media sites today, reports emerge about the 90 Day Fiance stars who are attempting to raise money. So why is that?
While most people think that's rather over the top considering they get paid well for their appearances on the show, that's not the case. According to a new report by Reality Blurb, the 90 Day Fiance franchise shows from TLC pay little in comparison to MTV's Teen Mom reality show. The same goes when compared to Bravo's Real Housewives franchise stars. It looks like 90 Day Fiance stars make peanuts in comparison.
Once you hear what people like Paul Staehle, Karine Martins, Danielle Jbali, David Toborowsky, and Rachel and Jon Walters make from this show, you might understand how they could have financial trouble. First of all, the Teen Mom franchise from MTV pays their stars over $300,000 per season, according to Reality Blurb. They also report that Bravo's Real Housewives "easily earn six to seven figures per season." That might sound enticing enough to get people to play out their life events in front of a camera, but when you hear what 90 Day Fiance pays you might think differently.
So why have Go Fund Me pages popped up for some of the 90 Day Fiance previous cast members? Although none were started by the cast members themselves, friends and fans started these online fundraisers because these couples were having financial difficulties. Also once the cast members found out they had a Go Fund Me page in their name they did request it come down. Still, they're hurting enough for money that others took matters into their own hands. Friends and fans were just trying to help them out with these online crowdsourcing sites.
A friend of Danielle Jbali's started one for her after they learned she needed help. This was started after Danielle shared with fans she needed money so she wouldn't get evicted. While the friend meant well, the Go Fund Me account for Danielle was closed.
