Most DJ's are lucky to make a few hundred bucks a weekend and they can be very very good. Of course they are also not on a television show seen by millions of people. Last year, just as a DJ, Pauly D earned $11M. Yep. He made the most by far of any of his fellow Jersey Shore cast mates and is closing in on Kim Kardashian territory for the most by a reality star. Pauly D ranked 7th last year in earnings. Afrojack made $9M last year which is probably the reason Paris Hilton followed him around like puppy dog. Tiesto made over $20M to rank as number one and it would be a damn shame if he was overtaken by Pauly D. Tiesto headlines concerts and sells 20,000 tickets. Pauly D shows up at a Vegas club and is asked to DJ as part of his promotional duties. I'm not saying he isn't good, but Tiesto is the best.
