Briana DeJesus Is Reportedly Making Way Less Than Her New 'Teen Mom 2' Costars

We still haven't fully wrapped our minds around Briana DeJesus joining the Teen Mom 2 cast, and from what we've heard, neither have Jenelle Evans, Chelsea DeBoer, Leah Messer, or Kailyn Lowry. At least they won't have one thing to be upset about -- Briana is reportedly making a small fraction of the paycheck the rest of the girls are earning.


While Kail, Chels, Leah, and Jenelle reportedly make around $300K per season at this point, The Ashley is reporting that Bri was only offered $20K to join season 8. It may seem like a drop in the bucket compared to what the alums are making, but it seems there may be a method to MTV's madness here.

Twenty thousand dollars is reportedly what each of the four original Teen Mom 2 ladies made during the show's second season, and Briana has exactly one season of Teen Mom 3 under her belt, in addition to her episode in the fourth season of 16 and Pregnant.

So it just makes sense. According to some reports, the other cast members aren't happy she's making any money, or joining the show at all. Jenelle Evans even told The Dirty, "I'm not commenting on it at all ... MTV wanted me to film about it and I even told them no. Same with the rest of the girls."

We're not quite sure how Briana is going to fit in with the rest of the show, as it's still only going to be an hour. Will she get equal screen time? There have also been rumors that she may replace Chelsea (Houska) DeBoer eventually, as the newly married mom of two has become decidedly more private over the years.

No matter how much time she gets on screen, we're probably going to get to see her second pregnancy play out. Since she's keeping her baby daddy a secret just like Kailyn Lowry is with her third, it's bound to make for some interesting TV.
