One of the coolest things about being on Teen Mom is that you can totally make a lot of money for you and your family.
Like, a lot.
The moms and original dads of the MTV franchise make hundreds of thousands per season, if you can even believe it.
They also get to travel for free when filming, which is pretty neat since we've been seeing more vacations on the show.
At least in pre-Covid times. Anyway ...
But besides the show itself, cast members are pulling in crazy amounts of cash from all kinds of wild and crazy places these days.
"Like where?" you may be wondering.
Well, wonder no further ...
Not only do we have the freshest intel on how the Moms make their loot, we finally know exactly who's the wealthiest.
So scroll on for the latest, and as a bonus you can enjoy the slow financial declines of Jenelle Evans. You know you've been waiting for this!
As we've said, the original cast members -- the moms and the dads of their first children -- all make the same amount, which is somewhere in the neighborhood of $350,000 to $400,000 a season. But what else does everyone do?
2. Jumping Right In
Before we get to HOW they make their money, let's give you what you came here for. In ascending order, the ten richest members of the Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 casts are as follows:
3. Jade Cline - $250,000
Jade is a newcomer, which means her salary isn't as high as the other girls'. But she's got some side hustles (like selling diet gummies), and she's already attained a net worth of $250,000.
4. Cheyenne Floyd - $450,000
Cheyenne is also a newcomer, but at the time she joined the cast, she was already known to some fans from her appearances on Are You The One. Ms. Floyd is worth $450,000.
5. Jenelle Evans - $500,000 (Reported)
Yes, believe it or not, multiple outlets list Jenelle Evans' net worth at half a million dollars. We find that hard to believe, especially since she appears to be broke as a joke these days. More on that later.
6. Briana DeJesus - $750,000
Briana's a born hustler. The combination of Teen Mom 2 stardom and multiple business ventures has brought her to a net worth of $750,000.
