DWTS Beats Flippin’ Burgers
While I was getting my drivers license at the age of 16, Dancing with the Stars front-runner Zendaya is on track to rake in $345,000 during the ballroom battle, if she can make it to the finale that is. According to her “DWTS” contract, Zendaya collected $125,000 to kick off the competition and appear on the first two weeks of the show. After that, she gets paid weekly — SOP for all the contestants. The good news for the dance-savvy Disney star — the money goes up, the longer she can last. Here’s the breakdown: Weeks 3 and 4: $10,000 per week ($20k total)
- Weeks 5 and 6: $20,000 per week ($40k total)
Weeks 7 and 8: $30,000 per week ($60k total)
- Weeks 9 and 10: $50,000 per week ($100k total)
Grand total for all 10 weeks: $345,000 You gotta understand, Zendaya’s been blowing away the competition — meaning there’s a good chance she could take home the mirror ball … and with it, all that cash. Sure beats flippin’ burgers.
