How much do the 1000-lb sisters make per episode?
It’s unknown the exact paycheck Amy and Tammy earn from their stint on 1000-lb Sisters.
However, we can make a rough assumption based on how much other cast members from TLC reality series make.
For example, stars on Little People, Big World make around $7,000 to $10,000 per episode, as reported by Business Insider.
The publication says: “Per episode it ranges from low-end, like $1,500 an episode, to $3,000 at the high end. And then after three years of success, it can go up to $7,000 to $10,000 an episode. After that, you start moving into the Kardashian level.”
Meanwhile, Alana Thompson and Mama June (June Shannon) made $15,000 to $20,000 per episode on their spin-off show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Amy and Tammy must also be making a sizeable income since they returned for a second series of their show.
