As you settle into another long week of work or school, or taking care of the kids and home before they go back to school and wondering how long you can keep living paycheck to paycheck, I want you to think about this.
The Hollywood Reporter says that The Situation is set to earn approximately $5M this year. Yep, in one year Mike Sorrentino has gone from a nobody to someone who will make more than 99% of the population of the world makes their entire working careers.
A guy who has no skills other than gym, laundry and tanning is making way more than several Hollywood actors. For Iron Man 2, Don Cheadle made $1M. Anna Paquin makes $900K a year for True Blood and Edie Falco $2.1M for a full season of Nurse Jackie.
I don't blame Mike for getting what he can when he can. I think all of us would do the same. We are not going to turn down free money. It just never ceases to amaze me, though, how much companies will pay someone to endorse their products, or pay someone to show up at an event who has really done nothing but appear on a reality show for a few months.
