Money is often a hot topic when it comes to the birth of multiple babies. For Adam and Danielle Busby — the stars of TLC's hit show OutDaughtered — their family grew from a family-of-three to a family-of-eight overnight, so we suspect the parents nearly had a heart attack thinking about how to pay for the diapers of five little girls, let alone college. Luckily, the Texas family has some help from their friends over at TLC, in addition to having jobs of their own.
Just how much the Busby's make, though, is still up in the air. According to reality producer Terence Michael, reality show families earn about 10 percent of the show's budget, and he estimates that TLC budgets about $250,000 to $400,000 per episode. In other words, this means that the Busby's would be raking in $25,000 to $40,000 per episode — and since they've done 20 episodes thus far — their grand total could be as high as $800,000. Not bad considering they both have day jobs too.
Adam is a Key Account Manager for Intrinsic Solutions/Spring Safety — a job he's held for nearly 11 years — and Danielle is an independent beauty consultant. They're also part-owners of Rush Cycle, an indoor cycling studio, which just opened earlier this month. In an interview with StyleBlueprint, Danielle said, "I’m excited to be getting involved in the fitness industry because it’s a passion of ours. We’re going into it with two other couples, who are great business people but also great friends of ours." She added, "I look at nothing but greatness because failure is not an option." These busy parents seem to live their life using that mantra, and with all this money coming in, It's safe to say that the Busby's won't be going hungry anytime soon.
