Considering how popular she became during Dancing with the Stars, it isn't all that surprising to find out that Bristol Palin is poised to cash in on the big exposure. But it's doubtful even Bristol herself thought things would be this lucrative.
"Bristol made over $345,000 from being on the show and currently is getting $35,000 for each speaking gig she does," an insider reveals to PopEater. "Yet, all that is going to feel like pocket change if one or two of the big deals she's currently working on actually happens."
Apparently Bristol is lining up a major deal to become the spokesperson for a "Middle American fashion brand." There's also a book deal in the works, as well as a multi-million dollar offer to appear on another reality show (fingers crossed for Jersey Shore.)
"None of this should come as a surprise," one industry source tells PopEater. "This year's Dancing was up over 23 percent thanks to Bristol. Love her or hate her, you just can't turn away. This is what makes her so valuable. Now is her time to make a lot of money and she knows it." Here's hoping she doesn't squander her 15 minutes like Kate Gosselin did, post-DWTS.
