The world was obsessed with Jersey Shore when it first premiered on MTV. The show was filled with hilarious drama between the cast members and all the random folks they would meet on their nights out at clubs and bars. Jersey Shore is considered an iconic reality TV show that will forever be remembered as the blueprint to reality TV craziness.
The cast members of the show have been doing really well for themselves financially since Jersey Shore came to an end. To top it off, they’ve even rebooted the show with Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Although not every single member of the previous show was part of the reboot, it was still nice to see so many familiar faces. Here’s where everyone’s net worth stands today after reality TV fame, spin-offs, and various business ventures.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has a net worth of $300 thousand
At the height of his Jersey Shore career, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was pulling in $150,000 per episode. After Jersey Shore ended, he appeared on Dancing With the Stars and Celebrity Big Brother, adding to his reality TV show résumé. Sorrentino even penned several books and launched a multitude of side businesses to continue expanding his wealth.
His net worth was reportedly somewhere around $10 million before he got in legal trouble with his taxes. Sorrentino ended up serving time in prison, and these days his net worth stands at around $300,000. The drama surrounding Sorrentino’s prison time has been heavily discussed in front of the cameras for MTV.

Angelina Pivarnick has a net worth of $4 million
Angelina Pivarnick has a net worth of $4 million today. She’s considered one of the most unlikable people in the Jersey Shore house since she struggled to get along with her cast members the majority of the time she was in front of the cameras. In Season 1 of the hit MTV reality show, she refused to work her shift at the T-shirt shop and ended up getting evicted from the house.
When she returned for Season 2, she got kicked out yet again for getting into a violent altercation with Sorrentino and Polizzi. Even though Pivarnick didn’t get along with some of her castmates, she became a full-time cast member of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation in 2019.
Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola has a net worth of $4 million
Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola currently has a net worth of $4 million. She was an extremely important part of the original Jersey Shore cast, but she chose not to return for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Her relationship with Ortiz-Magro was extremely volatile and toxic during the first few seasons of the show. For her own sake, she decided to keep her distance in order to move on with her life.
Giancola has modeled in several magazines including People and Harper’s Bazaar. She launched her own clothing line in 2013 under the name Sweetheart Styles to go along with her TV show nickname. She also linked up with SXE Fitness to release a trendy line of fitness apparel. Giancola’s business-savvy ethics don’t stop there, though—she even launched her own fragrance called Dangerous around that same time.
Jenni “JWoww” Farley has a net worth of $4 million
Jenni “JWoww” Farley currently has a net worth of $4 million. Before becoming a bona fide reality TV star, Farley had her own graphic design business, proving that she already knew the importance of creating wealth and success for herself.

Fans of the raunchy reality TV show absolutely adore JWoww. Some of the other reality TV shows she’s starred in include Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, TNA Impact!, and Disaster Date.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has a net worth of $4 million

The first Halloween celebration after Season 1 of Jersey Shore led to a lot of Snooki costume sales. Dressing up like Polizzi was one of the most popular ideas people had that year.
After the original Jersey Shore, she starred in four seasons of Snooki & JWoww, where the women showcased what it was like to be mothers who still liked to have a good time. Dancing with the Stars’ 17th season featured Polizzi showing off her dance moves with Sasha Farber as her teammate, where they ended up landing in eighth place. Jersey Shore was a great place for Polizzi to gain national attention. She’s now considered a reality TV gem.
