Those morons from MTV's "Jersey Shore" are EVERYWHERE these days. But that didn't translate into big bucks for them right off the bat.
--"Parade" magazine dropped its annual "What People Earn" edition yesterday . . . and they say the show's breakout star, NICOLE "SNOOKI" POLIZZI, only banked $2,200 in 2009. (???)
--That's $200 per episode for the first season of "Jersey Shore" . . . which shot last year and aired from December of '09 through this past January. There were 11 episodes in all.
--It's not clear if that's ALL the money Snooki made in '09, or if that's all she made from the show.
--Either way, she'll earn a lot more this year. Shooting on Season Two is currently underway, and cast members are now being paid a reported $10,000 per episode.
--Plus, ever since "Jersey Shore" blew up, she and other members of the cast have been able to make big bucks from personal appearances.
(--See what other celebrities earned last year in the next story . . .)
