We already knew that Caitlyn Jenner was on her way to becoming the wealthiest reality TV star of all time, but we had no idea just how much she stands to earn from her first series.
I Am Cait doesn't premiere until next month, but the first reports about Ms. Jenner's earnings are in, and it looks like she might soon be out-earning the rest of her famous family.
Radar Online is reporting that Caitlyn will make $5 million for just one season of her upcoming 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 one point, talks between the network and E! had broken down, because nobody wanted to pay her more than $2 million. Caitlyn’s agent then began informal talks with other networks, and E! quickly came back to the table, ready to pay $5 million.”
To put that in perspective, the entire Kardashian clan just finalized a deal in which they'll all split $100 million for four more seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
And her reality salary is just the tip of the earnings iceberg for Caitlyn. She's reportedly in talks for endorsement deals with MAC Cosmetics and several other women's brands.
