Here\'s What the Kardashian-Jenners Make Per Episode of \'KUWTK\'

It’s been ten years since Keeping Up With the Kardashians first premiered on E! — thank you, Ryan Seacrest.

Back then the show was about a typical American family and their struggles raising six kids, one of whom made an infamous sex tape.

But as time has gone by, and the siblings and their parents have become more and more famous, their ratings are pretty high — resulting in insane salaries for the reality stars.

What’s even more shocking, though, is that the paycheck per season is not even their biggest source of income. Scroll down to see how much they are paid for the show, how much they made last year, and just how much their net worth is. It’s pretty shocking!

Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET on E!

In 2014, TV Guide’s annual “Who Makes What” report disclosed that the stars of Keeping Up With the Kardashians made a whooping $10 million per season. Yes, we know how that sounds.

Not all of it, though, goes straight to the sisters and their misters. The multimillion-dollar paycheck — which amounts to approximately $500K per episode — was divided between the then-regular cast, including Kim, Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie, Caitlyn Jenner, Scott; the kids; and guest stars.

Not exactly a Friends payday.

$100 Million Deal

$100 Million Deal

Times change, of course, and by 2015 the famous family had already negotiated a new deal with E!: $100 million for four additional seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Of course, not everyone gets the same amount. According to Mirror, Kris is getting $20 million, while Kim is only getting *gasp* $15 million. Everyone else gets $10 million — not including Caitlyn, who was already set to leave the show back then.

But that’s not all! A few bonuses are set to be given if throughout the show Kim manages to get Kanye to appear on it — that’s an additional $5 million for Kimye. Kendall also gets a bonus if she gets Cara Delevingne, and Kylie needs to get Tyga on it for some additional ka$h.

Thanks to this deal — and many, many others — the family’s combined net worth was approximately $300 million in 2016.

She might not be the biggest earner on the new deal — unless she gets that Kanye bonus — but it’s not like she needs it.

According to Forbes, from June 2015 to June 2016, the reality star banked only $51 million. This probably makes you question all your life and career choices. Don’t worry, us too.

Believe it or not, a good chunk of those earnings come from her mobile game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, which has been downloaded over 45 million times since it was released in 2014.

The 19-year-old managed to accrue $18 million from June 2015 to June 2016, positioning herself as the second-highest earner in the family.

The entrepreneur has managed to turn herself into a complete brand, selling out her famous lip kits in seconds. Her huge social media following has also made her unstoppable when negotiating endorsement deals, which account for 20 percent of her total earnings.

The supermodel is now a face everybody recognizes apart from her years on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Her talent has led her to countless magazine covers and runway shows, as well as being the face of world-renowned brands like Estée Lauder.

All of her hard work resulted in earnings of $17 million from June 2015 to June 2016.

The third sister made $15 million between June 2015 and June 2016, not only from her participation in Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but also because from her own show, the now-canceled Kocktails with Khloe.

The business mogul also has her own brand of clothing, Good American Denim; her bestselling book, Strong Looks Better Naked; and a ton of social media endorsements.

The momager might be the top-earning member of the family when it comes to the show, but she didn’t make nearly as much as daughters Kim, Kendall, Kylie, or Khloe between June 2015 and June 2016. 

Still, the matriarch made a very respectable $11.5 million. Her main income is the reality show, but she also gets a cut of any gig she negotiates for her kids. Not too shabby!

The mom of three had the lowest earnings among her sisters between June 2015 and June 2016, but $10 million is more money than most people earn in a lifetime, so there's that.

The 37-year-old likes to spend a lot of time with her kids, toting them everywhere she goes, which limits her time as a businesswoman.

It might sound like pennies in comparison to what his sisters made in just 12 months, but Rob earned $2 million between June 2015 and June 2016 — doing who knows what.

Not bad for someone who spends most of his time at home.

He might not be a Kardashian/Jenner by name, but he definitely is one at heart. The proud dad of three has earned all of his cash through the blood, sweat, tears, and multiple rehab programs his relationship with Kourtney has put him through.

According to CelebrityNetWorth.com, Scott's fortune is estimated at $16 million, so even with his 2015 separation from Kourtney, he's not missing on too much.

She might no longer be on the show, but she's still definitely a part of the family. The Olympian has reportedly accrued a fortune of $100 million as of January 2017.

While she doesn't get to enjoy Keeping Up With the Kardashians newest deal, the motivational speaker reportedly makes over $100K per public appearance.

The elusive musician — who had to cancel his Saint Pablo tour in late 2016 due to some mental health issues — reportedly earned $17.5 million in 2016.

While the amount is a far cry from wife Kim's earnings in 12 months, he is definitely not broke. Of course, the cancellation of the remaining shows might set him back approximately $10 million. Yikes!

While Kim and Kanye's firstborn is still only a child — and probably not worth much —according to The Huffington Post, she is expected to receive an impressive $10 million as soon as she turns 21 years old. Of course, that doesn't include all the insane presents she's already received from her parents, like a $62K diamond-encrusted tiara.

It definitely pays to have rich and famous parents!
