We realized that Caitlyn Jenner was en route to turning into the wealthiest unscripted television star ever, yet we had no clue exactly the amount she stands to acquire from her first series.
I Am Cait doesn’t debut until one month from now, yet the first reports about Ms. Jenner’s income are in, and it would appear that she may soon be out-gaining whatever is left of her famous family.
Caitlyn will make $5 million for only one season of her up and coming E! “docu-series.”
“It’s the biggest paycheck ever given by E! for a solo reality show, and Caitlyn’s agent was relentless in getting her the huge payday,” said one insider.
“At a certain point, talks between the network and E! had separated, in light of the fact that no one wanted to pay her more than $2 million. Caitlyn’s agent then started talking with different networks, and E! rapidly returned to the table, prepared to pay $5 million.”
To place that in context, the whole Kardashian clan simply finished a deal in which they’ll all split $100 million for four more seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
What’s more, her reality compensation is only the tip of the earnings iceberg for Caitlyn. She’s purportedly in talks for endorsement deals with MAC Cosmetics and several other women’s brands.
