Although the site does not explicitly state whether it’s a yearly salary or per episode, her colleague Steelo Brim reportedly earns $140,000 each and every show. Imagine getting paid to laugh at stupid videos? It’s every millennial’s dream!
But if you’re thinking about quitting your day job to become a regular on a reality series, think again. Chanel, 30, and Steelo’s alleged earnings are hardly the norm. According to Business Insider, “For those docu-ensembles, especially if they’re nobodies, per episode it ranges from low-end, like $1,500 an episode, to $3,000 at the high end,” an agent told the outlet in 2016.
However, “If you’re hosting a show on broadcast primetime network, you get paid a lot,” a separate source dished. Not to mention, “The longer you stay in it, the more you get paid.”
Chanel got her start when she met Rob through mutual friends in 2008 after she was discovered on MySpace. He first offered her the position of his secretary on his show Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory. In 2011, she appeared as Sheila in an episode of The Hard Times of RJ Berger before becoming a leading panel member on Ridiculousness. Now, the blonde beauty, whose real name is Chelsea Chanel Dudley, is signed to Lil Wayne‘s Young Money Entertainment and amassed a social following of more than 3.2 million. Not too shabby!
