Are The ‘7 Little Johnstons’ Kids Paid For Being On The Show?
Are the 7 Little Johnstons kids paid for their time on the show? Fans are wondering how this all works and whether Trent and Amber Johnston’s five kids are properly compensated. Keep reading to find out what fans think and get more details about how much the Johnstons might make from the network.
How much does the 7 Little Johnstons family make from TLC?
It’s unknown exactly how much Trent and Amber’s family makes per episode of their TLC show. However, reality TV product Terence Michael previously talked about how stars are paid. He said reality TV personalities typically make 10% of the show’s budget. He told E! News that the Duggars might have made $25,000 to $40,000 per episode.
If that’s still the case for the Johnstons, it’s possible they’re bringing in a good amount of cash from their show. Of course, it’s possible they make more or less, depending on how well their show is doing. Plus, TLC could have changed its compensation plan in the past few years.
Aside from wondering how much the Johnstons make, fans are also curious about whether the adult kids make money from the show.
Are the 7 Little Johnstons kids paid for their appearances on the show?
On Reddit, a fan started a conversation about whether the Johnston kids are compensated for their roles on their family’s reality show. One fan pointed out, “The kids lives and commentary make up the bulk of this show.”
Another fan speculated, “If they are not paying them, how are some of the kids affording their houses, apartments, furniture, etc?” Some of the kids seem to be managing their expenses on their own. So, this could be a sign they are making money from the show.
Ultimately, there is no way to know for sure how the Johnston family handles their TLC money. It’s possible they will say something about this in the future, but it doesn’t look like they have opened up about it in the past. Nonetheless, fans hope that the kids are properly compensated for their time on the show. But it’s all speculation at this point.
How are other TLC stars and their kids paid?
As TLC fans may know, there were issues with the Duggar kids of 19 Kids & Counting and Counting On not being compensated. This was because the parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, reportedly received one check for the whole family. They were expected to divvy it up. But it doesn’t seem like that happened. Jill Dillard even sought out legal help to recover some of the money.
But things may be different with the Johnstons. The kids could make money individually or their parents may pay them separately.
So, how do you think the payment works for TLC’s 7 Little Johnstons? Do you feel like Trent and Amber Johnston would pay their kids or put the money away for them?
